Sunderland dents Chelsea's title hopes (Yahoo Sports) - In another twist to this unpredictable English Premier League season, last-place Sunderland damaged Chelsea's title hopes with a 2-1 upset at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. After surprise losses to Aston Villa and Crystal Palace in recent weeks, Chelsea again stuttered against weaker opposition, as Jose Mourinho's 77-match unbeaten home run as Chelsea boss came to an end in a major boost for league leader Liverpool. Chelsea could not hold onto its lead after Samuel Eto'o opened the scoring, as Connor Wickham leveled from the rebound six minutes later following Marcos Alonso's long-range effort. Scherzer, Tigers end 10-game skid against Angels (Yahoo Sports) - Max Scherzer struck out nine in seven innings and the Detroit Tigers finally managed to beat the Los Angeles Angels, 5-2 on Saturday. Detroit had lost 10 straight to the Angels and hadn't beaten them since Aug. 26, 2012. The Tigers snapped that skid behind a sharp outing by Scherzer and home runs from Nick Castellanos and Victor Martinez. Albert Pujols hit his 498th homer, connecting for a solo shot in the ninth. Strong era begins at Texas with shaky QB play (Yahoo Sports) - The Charlie Strong era began at Texas with a shaky performance at quarterback and few questions answered about just how quickly the Longhorns can rebound in the Big 12 under their new coach. Tyrone Swoopes struggled to command the first-team offense in Saturday's annual spring scrimmage. Texas is hoping he can establish himself as a viable option in the fall. With David Ash injured, Swoopes took every snap with the starters but started just 4 of 18 passing against the second-team defense, and his first throw was intercepted. Buehrle dominates, Blue Jays blank Indians 5-0 (Yahoo Sports) - Mark Buehrle pitched shutout ball into the eighth inning and remained unbeaten this season, leading the Toronto Blue Jays over the Cleveland Indians 5-0 on Saturday. Jose Reyes hit an RBI single in his first game since opening day, when he strained his left hamstring in his first at-bat of the season and went on the disabled list. Corey Kluber (1-2) allowed five runs in 6 2-3 innings. Dioner Navarro drove in three runs. Lynn, Cardinals beat sloppy Nationals 4-3 (Yahoo Sports) - Lance Lynn won his fourth straight start and delivered an RBI double after yet another error by Washington, and the St. Louis Cardinals scored three unearned runs to beat Jordan Zimmermann and the Nationals 4-3 Saturday. Tony Cruz drove in two runs for the Cardinals, who have won nine of the last 10 games between the teams. St. Louis took control with a three-run second inning fueled by third baseman Anthony Rendon's throwing error, capped by Lynn's first career extra-base hit. The Nationals, in their first season under former Gold Glove third baseman Matt Williams, are averaging more than an error per game and lead the majors in miscues. Buehrle dominates in Blue Jays' 5-0 win (Yahoo Sports) - CLEVELAND (AP) -- Mark Buehrle pitched shutout ball into the eighth inning and remained unbeaten this season, leading the Toronto Blue Jays over the Cleveland Indians 5-0 on Saturday.

Another Elliott brings Dawsonville siren to life (NASCAR.com) [Yahoo! Sports: April 19, 2014, 7:21 am]
And when it emits its ear-splitting howl, people in Dawsonville, Ga., know exactly what it means -- local son Chase Elliott has won another race. For two consecutive Friday nights, the siren perched on the roof of the Dawsonville Pool Room has sounded its mighty shriek, and for two consecutive Friday nights the locals have streamed outside to honk car horns and celebrate as if it were midnight on New Year's Eve. Elliott's back-to-back victories in the Nationwide Series have not only cemented the 18-year-old as a rising star, they've also helped to revive a unique tradition in his hometown. When an Elliott wins, the siren above the Pool Room blows.

Wallace Jr., Dylan K, Kennedy talk NASCAR Next (NASCAR.com) [Yahoo! Sports: April 19, 2014, 6:50 am]
Officially they are known as NASCAR's "Next" but the reality is more like NASCAR's "Now." The two-time K&N Pro Series champ Kwasniewski, 18, won the pole position in his very first Nationwide Series start at Daytona International Speedway in February. Kennedy, great-grandson of NASCAR founder Bill France Sr., was on pole at his family's Daytona track in his first Camping World Truck Series start there in February. And Wallace, 20, is already a NASCAR national series winner, with a victory at the super tough Martinsville, Va. half-miler lastseason in only his second Camping World Truck Series start there.

With NASCAR officials focusing on engine changes in the Sprint Cup Series for 2015 that will result in a reduction of horsepower, such a move should involve "a restriction on the intake side," according to Sprint Cup Series team co-owner Jack Roush. "(It is) straightforward and it is easily reversible if you decided that the quality of the racing was hurt by it," Roush told NASCAR.com during the Sprint Cup Series stop at Darlington Raceway on April 12.

Sponsorship woes put Swan Racing future in doubt (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: April 17, 2014, 12:01 pm]
Swan Racing's future is on the rocks and the two-car team is reviewing its ability to compete in NASCAR. Cole Whitt drives the No. 26 Toyota Camry and Parker Kligerman drives the No. 30 Toyota Camry for Swan in the Sprint Cup series. Swan Racing is owned by Brandon Davis, the CEO of independent oil and gas company Swan Energy.

Swan Racing 'reviewing its current situation' (NASCAR.com) [Yahoo! Sports: April 17, 2014, 11:30 am]
Due to an inability to secure the necessary funding, Swan Racing officials say they are reviewing the organization's financial situation and its ability to continue to field two full-time teams in NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series. Whether the organization returns to competition when the series is back on track next weekend at Richmond International Raceway has yet to be determined. Swan Racing debuted in 2012 as a single-car operation with owner Brandon Davis and driver David Stremme. For 2014, the group expanded to two teams, fielding the No. 30 Toyota for driver Parker Kligerman as well as the No. 26 with driver Cole Whitt.

Top 10 NASCAR television analysts (NASCAR.com) [Yahoo! Sports: April 17, 2014, 7:00 am]
At its best, auto racing doesn't just translate via television -- it bursts through the screen and into your living room, leaving little bits of rubber on the sofa. That's often certainly the case with NASCAR, whose sound and fury and kaleidoscopic colors have made for compelling viewing ever since CBS cameras caught Cale Yarborough and Donnie Allison slugging it out at Daytona in 1979. Analysts, like Darrell Waltrip and Kyle Petty, are like the uncles we argue with across the dinner table. Oh, do race fans love their television analysts.

Wallace showing improvement in Truck Series (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: April 16, 2014, 4:14 pm]
Darrell Wallace Jr. was the first black driver to win a NASCAR race since the 1960s when he took the checkered flag in a Truck Series race at Martinsville last year. The 20-year-old Wallace, who goes by Bubba, has openly talked of becoming the Tiger Woods of NASCAR - the great black star who can transcend the sport and prove people of all colors can race. He rebounded from a crash in the season-opening Truck race at Daytona to finish second at Martinsville last month. ''We're trying to carry that momentum from Martinsville on to Kansas, so it's a little tough,'' Wallace said.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.  -- NASCAR announced today that Marcus Jadotte, vice president of public affairs and multicultural development, will be leaving the organization.

Greg Biffle embodies NASCAR Green initiative (NASCAR.com) [Yahoo! Sports: April 16, 2014, 8:49 am]
Standing in his Roush Fenway Racing trailer at Texas Motor Speedway, Greg Biffle smiled widely at the suggestion that he may just be NASCAR's "greenest" driver. Having grown up in southern Washington state in the small town of Vancouver -- located on the Columbia River, alongside the Washington/Oregon border -- Biffle is well aware of the rustic, uber-environmentally conscious stereotype assigned to America's Northwest. "Yes, it tends to be the greener part of the country," Biffle said with a smile. As NASCAR celebrates its Race to Green initiatives this month, it's clear to Biffle this race should be a sustained enduro instead of a sprint to the finish.

Kevin Harvick may just now be nearing his peak (NASCAR.com) [Yahoo! Sports: April 16, 2014, 7:00 am]
His effort at Darlington Raceway -- a dominant 238 laps led, and the track's first winner from the pole since Dale Jarrett in 1997 -- was everything we've come to expect from a driver and a team that have been the ones to watch ever since preseason testing. No question, Harvick enjoyed some tremendous seasons at Richard Childress Racing, where he finished third in final points in three of the past four seasons. That was clearly the case at Darlington, where the California native added his name to an exclusive list of drivers who have claimed the four biggest events of their era -- the Daytona 500, the Brickyard 400, the Coca-Cola 600 and the Southern 500. In the two decades since Indianapolis Motor Speedway was added to the schedule, only four drivers have swept that quartet: Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson, and now Harvick.

Tire test portends higher speeds at Kansas (NASCAR.com) [Yahoo! Sports: April 15, 2014, 10:43 am]
KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- More than a dozen Sprint Cup Series teams converged on Kansas Speedway for a Goodyear tire test Tuesday in preparation for the track's first night race next month. About 15 teams took part on a cool spring day that portended potential track record speeds at a facility where Matt Kenseth set the existing mark of 191.864 mph in qualifying last April. Speeds jumped as a result, and last fall Goodyear brought to Kansas its multi-zone tread tire, which combines one compound designed for traction and another toughened for durability. Particularly since speeds at Kansas seem to be going up. "No one needs to wonder if the track record will get broken ?
