This week the NASCAR Sprint Cup series goes to the Dallas suburb of Ft. Worth and the Samsung Mobile 500 on Fox. The race will start at 1 p.m. The race will go 334 laps or 501 miles.

The track has several characteristics. A fast 1.5-mile track made faster by improvements to the turns and the asphalt surface since its opening in 1997.

With a 138,122 seating capacity, Texas Motor Speedway is the largest sports facility in the state of Texas.

The Texas Motor Speedway had 12 different winners in its first 12 Cup races and did have a multiple winner until Jeff Burton, winner of the first race in 1997, won the spring race in 2007.

In recapping the 2009 Samsung 500, Jeff Gordon ended a 47-race winless streak, leading 105 laps to edge teammate Jimmie Johnson. Greg Biffle, Tony Stewart and Matt Kenseth rounded ou the top five. Carl Edwards seemed poised to win, but a dropped lug nut on his final pit stop relegated him to 10th.

Kasey Kahne to drive for Hendrick Motorsports in 2012

compiled from staff and wire reports

Kasey Kahne has completed a deal to drive for Hendrick Motorsports in 2012 but still needs to iron out his driving plans for next season.

Most notably, it’s not clear where Kahne will drive in 2011. HMS is currently at NASCAR’s four-car limit, and Kahne is working out a deal to succeed Mark Martin in the number 5 car in 2012. Martin has one more season left on an extension he signed last year, and owner Rick Hendrick plans to honor that deal.

Kahne’s deal with Hendrick is done, but he still must figure out where he’ll race in 2011. Among his options are a potential ride with Stewart-Haas Racing, which has an alliance with Hendrick, another Chevrolet team, or, should Martin opt out of the final year of his contract, Kahne could get to drive the number 5 car early.

Although he has 11 career wins and two berths in the Chase for the Cup championship, Kahne has not felt he’s had the equipment to contend for a title. He was openly vocal and critical last season, when he overcame a hectic merger between Gillett-Everham Racing and RPM and severe financial issues inside the organization to win two races and finish 10th in the Chase.

Marty Turco will not be re-signed by the Dallas Stars

compiled by the staff

Goaltender Marty Turco’s time in Dallas with the Stars is over. It’s hard to believe because he has been one of the players that has been the face of the franchise since he came into the league from the University of Michigan.

General manager Joe Nieuwendyk has said that the Stars will not re-sign Turco, a three-time All-Star who just completed his ninth season with the team.

Kari Lehtonen, acquired from Atlanta in February, will be the number goalie in the 2010-2011 season.

The 34-year-old Turco just completed a $22.8 million, four-year contract he signed in January 2006 that kept him from becoming a free agent at the end of  that season.

Turco holds the Stars franchise record with 509 games played as a goaltender, winning 262 games with a .911 save percentage and a 2.31 goals-against average. He had 40 shutouts.

In 2002-03, his first as the starting goalie, he set a modern NHL record with a 1.72 GAA, a mark that has since been broken.

Turco was 21-26 in the playoffs for the Stars, including four shutouts. Three of  those shutouts came in one series, in the first round of the 2007 playoffs against Vancouver when he had a .952 save percentage. The Stars were still knocked out in seven games.

In 53 games this season, Turco posted a 22-20-11 record. He had a .913 save percentage and a 2.72 GAA.

Philadelphia 76ers coaching carousel continues; Jordan out after 1 season

compiled from staff and wire reports

The once-proud franchise of the Philadelphia 76ers that has Julius Erving, Maurice Cheeks, Billy Cunningham, Hal Greer, Allen Iverson, Charles Barkley, Wilt Chamberlain in its history, has now become the joke of the league because of its coaching carousel.

For example, current star player, Samuel Dalembert has seen it all in 10 years in Philly. His next coach will be his eighth.

Eddie Jordan (nba)

Eddie Jordan is the latest coach fired by an organization that can’t find the right mix of players and coaches to contend regularly for championships. Jordan who uses the much-maligned Princeton offense was given only one season to maike it work.

Since Larry Brown left in 2003, four other head coaches have failed to coach more than 82 games for the organization. Jordan’s dismissal means a second straight offseason of a coaching search.

With Jordan being ousted, all the heat and blame shifts to team president and general manager Ed Stefanski, who has yet to make a big move with a big payroll. The $80 million dollar contract he gave to free-agent Elton Brand in 2008 was a mistake and the $80 million to keep Andre Iguodala has not paid dividends in the standings. Jordan’s hire was disliked by fans and media from day one last May.

Jordan’s dismissal had been widely speculated for months as the players never warmed up to the Princeton offense.

Lou Williams, Thaddeus Young and Marreese Speights were among the promising core of young players who did not progress this season as the organization had expected. Brand hasn’t lived or played up to his contract, Dalembert was his usual erratic and inconsistent self and Iguodala continued to show he is not a franchise player.

compiled from staff and wire reports


Mikael Samuelsson (nhl)

Mikael Samuelsson scored his second goal 8:52 into overtime to give the Vancouver Canucks a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night in Game 1 of the first-round Western Conference series.

Los Angeles had several key players making their postseason debuts and the Canucks had lost only 11 home games all season (30-8-3). It showed at times as Vancouver outshot the Kings 17-6 in the opening period and 13-2 in the third.
