The Cincinnati Bengals lost their first game of the pre-season Saturday night at Dallas, 24-18.

After that game came another cutdown which affected several players.

The Bengals trimmed their roster down from 87 to 81 Sunday afternoon by releasing six players. Gone from the roster are tight Richard Quinn, defensive tackle Vaughn Meatoga, wide receiver Jheranie Boyd, cornerback Terrence Brown, kicker/punter Quinn Sharp and linebacker Jordan Campbell.

The Bengals still must cut another six players by Tuesday to reach the NFL-mandated 75-man roster limit. The Bengals host Indianapolis on Thursday in the final preseason game for both teams. Teams must cut down to the regular season limit of 53 players by next Saturday, Aug 31.

The “Tricky Triangle”, which Pocono is known as, presents three very different corners and three straightaways of varying degrees. This track is a real challenge for drivers and their crew chiefs.

The Sprint Cup races for 2012 have been reduced from 500 to 400 miles.

Recapping the 2011 Good Sam RV Insurance 500 Race:

Brad Keselowski shook off injuries from a crash at Road Atlanta for his second win of the season. The Joe Gibbs Racing trio of Kyle Busch, who finished second, Denny Hamlin, who came in 15th and Joey Logano, who came in 26th, combined to lead 136 of the 200 laps.

The NASCAR Sprint Cup moves into the midwest city of Indianapolis for the Crown Royal “Your Hero’s Name Here” 400 at the Brickyard.

Race time is 1:00 p.m. on ESPN.

The 400-mile race consists of 160 laps on the 2.5-mile oval and a crowd of 250,000-plus is expected.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which was built in 1909, is now an asphalt track with flat straightaways.

IMS has the claim as the world’s largest spectator sporting venue with permanent seating reaching 250,000 or more.

The track was paved in 1909 with 3.2 million bricks. A “yard of bricks” is at the starting-finish line.

RECAPPING THE 2011 BRICKYARD 400:

Paul Menard earned his first Sprint Cup win, holding off crowd-favorite, Jeff Gordon by 0.7 seconds. His crew chief’s pit strategy helped Menard lead 11 of the final 16 laps.

Jamie McMurray, the last driver to surrender the lead, finished fourth in the race. Kasey Kahne started the race second and led a high of 48 laps but finished a disappointing 18th.

Menard’s dad, John, has been a car owner for many drivers in the Indy 500.

The top 10 starting lineup with their qualifying speed for this year’s race includes:

INDIANAPOLIS, IN — Ohio native Sam Hornish, Jr. has been filling in quite well for suspended driver A.J. Allmendinger, who is  participating in NASCAR’s substance-abuse recovery program.

Hornish, the 33-year-old Defiance, Ohio native, drove the No. 12 Nationwide car this Saturday at Indianapolis and next weekend at Pocono. Hornish has filled in for Allmendinger in the past two Sprint Cup Series races. On the Cup side, he is driving the #22 car.

Saturday afternoon at the Brickyard, Hornish drove the #12 Alliance Truck Parts Dodge to a second-place finish in the Inaugural Indiana 250 at the Brickyard. He ran all 100 laps and picked up 43 points for Team Penske.

His teammate, Brad Keselowski, won his third Nationwide race of 2012, in the #22 Discount Tire Dodge. It was the first time that team owner Roger Penske, has won a stock car race at the famed Brickyard.  He has won 15 races in IndyCar at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Kyle Busch led a race high three times for 51 laps in the No. 54 Monster Energy Toyota. But he never recovered from a slow pit stop under caution on Lap 64 that dropped him from first to ninth on the ensuing restart. Busch ended up finishing 22nd, slowed by a spin after losing control on a restart on Lap 79. He side-swiped Hornish during the incident, who continued in the No. 12 Alliance Truck Parts Dodge without trouble.

A favorite amongst members of the media, Hornish has not had a full-time ride since 2010. In 2011, he raced just one time, all season, winning the Wypall 200 at Phoenix for Front Row Motorsports.

Hornish returned to the Nationwide Series for a complete schedule in 2012 for Penske Racing.
