DW: NASCAR must improve driver safety, fix qualifying procedures

I got tickled listening to Jimmie Johnson in Victory Lane Sunday after winning the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 in Atlanta.

Cron working to ensure he's on Angels' opening day roster

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) It will be difficult for Angels manager Mike Scioscia to keep a player with the power potential of C.J. Cron out of the batting order this season. At 6-foot-4 and 235 pounds, the right-handed hitting Cron is more than capable of slamming pitches beyond the fence at Angels Stadium.
