Eventhough Austin Dillon is 21 years old, he still has time to drive on the NASCAR Trucks circuit and go to college at High Point University in North Carolina.

On Friday, the grandson of NASCAR team owner Richard Childress, won the Camping World Truck Series championship by finishing 10th in the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Johnny Sauter won the race, which had to be called with 15 laps to go due to rain.

Dillon, who played in the 2002 Little League World Series in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania, in his career has 4 wins in the Trucks series with 32 top ten finishes and 12 poles.

A youth baseball team from Saudi Arabia has received a spot in the Little League World Series after the squad from Uganda was denied a visa to the United States.

The Arabian-American team lost last month to the Rev. John Foundation team from Kampala, which won the Little League’s Middle East and Africa region and advanced to the World Series in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

However, the U.S. State Department last week said that some visa applications for the Ugandan players included birth certificates and records altered to make players appear younger.

Youths age 11 or 12 as of April 30 can participate in the Little League World Series.
