Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix was successful and here’s why

I will admit to being both disappointed and skeptical when l learned last year that the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix was bidding farewell to its historic location thus taking on the huge endeavor of staging the race on the downtown streets of the Motor City in the shadow of automotive stalwart General Motors along the Detroit River. After all, as the quintessential creature of habit, l was without question accustomed to the traditions that had served me well and provided some spirited racing.

Colts confirm NFL investigating player for possible gambling

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Colts say they are aware the NFL has opened a gambling investigation into one of the team's players. A team spokesman also says the team will have no additional comment. The player has not been publicly identified.

DETROIT (AP) — Alex Palou started and finished first in the Detroit Grand Prix on Sunday, winning his second IndyCar race in less than a month and for the sixth time of his career. The Spaniard won the Indianapolis Grand Prix in May. He led 74 of 100 laps on Detroit's new street course and went ahead for the last time on lap 77.

Biden celebrates LSU women’s and UConn men’s basketball teams at separate White House events

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden has appealed for more support for female athletes during a White House event celebrating Louisiana State's championship women's basketball team. The event once appeared in jeopardy after Biden's wife, Jill, suggested that the losing Iowa team be invited, too. Friday's ceremony was briefly halted when forward Sa'Myah Smith appeared to collapse on stage. The Bidens lavished praise on the LSU Tigers for their performance and the way they've helped advance women's sports. Neither one mentioned the uproar Jill Biden's earlier comments caused. Biden also welcomed the UConn men's championship basketball team to a White House celebration later Friday.

Fever end record 20-game losing streak with 90-87 win over Atlanta

ATLANTA (AP) — NaLyssa Smith scored 23 points and grabbed 13 rebounds to help the Indiana Fever end a WNBA record-tying 20-game losing streak with a 90-87 win over the Atlanta Dream. The Fever had lost 20 in a row dating back to last season to tie the Tulsa Shock for the most consecutive losses all-time. Indiana lost its final 18 games last season before dropping its first two this year. After an Indiana miss, Alyssa Gray took the long rebound quickly downcourt and drove on Kelsey Mitchell. A foul was called but Fever coach Christie Sides challenged it. After a review, officials determined there wasn't enough contact to warrant a foul.
