Long day, delays, mistakes don’t stop Kyle Busch; wins Trucks race

compiled from staff, wire and NASCAR news

25-year-old Kyle Busch has overcome several obstacles this season in the NASCAR trucks division, lack of funding, mistakes by and his pit crew and long days at the track.

Well, he overcame all of those obstacles and then some to hold off  Todd Bodine at Charlotte Motor Speedway in the Trucks series race that didn’t finish until the wee hours of Saturday morning because of a lengthy rain delay on Friday.

The garages opened at 7:30 a.m. and practice was at 9. Qualifying began at 3:30 p.m., but the 200-mile race didn’t begin until 11 p.m., three hours late and more than four hours after NASCAR officials canceled qualifying for Saturday’s Sprint Cup All-Star race because of persistent rain.

Busch recovered from hitting the wall early in the race and had the lead over Ron Hornaday, Jr., on a restart with three laps to go. Bodine moved up to second place but couldn’t catch Busch, who won for the second time despite not having a primary sponsor for his number 18 Toyota truck which he owns. It was his 70th win in the truck series.

Hornaday finished third, followed by James Buscher and Elliott Sadler.

Todd Bodine moved past Aric Almirola, who finished seventh in the race, to take a 2-point advantage in the Truck series standings.

compiled from staff and wire reports

The Chicago Blackhawks are within one win of the Stanley Cup finals for the first time in 18 years.

Dave Bolland’s pass from behind the net found Byfuglien in stride as he skated fast and hard into the slot Friday night. That goal had a 3-2 win over the San Jose Sharks and a 3-0 series lead in the Western Conference finals.

Two assists from Jonathan Toews, and 44 saves from Antti Niemi put the Blackhawks on the brink of their first appearance in the finals since 1992. They will have the chance to wrap up the series sweep at home on Sunday.

Toews’ two assists gave him a point in 12 straight playoff games, breaking a club record he had shared with Hall of Famer Stan Mikita, who had an 11-game streak in 1962. Toews has 25 points in the 2010 playoffs.

Trevor Crowe’s two-run single with the bases loaded in the ninth inning off Reds closer Francisco Cordero made it 6-4. Cordero was pitching for the third straight day and in a non-save situation, then got the Indians two best hitters. He struck out Shin-Soo Choo on a called third strike in a 10-pitch at bat. Austin Kearns, a former Red, lined the first pitch he saw to right fielder Jay Bruce to end the game. Cordero threw 36 pitches in the ninth inning. Reds manager Dusty Baker said he may not use Cordero on Sunday because he needs a breather.
