CAR--NASCAR-DANICA'S BACK
DARLINGTON, S.C. - Danica Patrick's back in the Sprint Cup series for the first time in nearly three months and she's picked perhaps the oddest track on the circuit to do it. Darlington Raceway gives veterans fits with veterans struggling from year-to-year to manage the egg-shaped layout, let alone a first-time unfamiliar with the track's strange corners, narrow straightaways and menacing reputation for havoc.

CAR--NASCAR-STENHOUSE
JOHNSTON, Iowa - Ricky Stenhouse Jr. won both NASCAR Nationwide races in Iowa last year. Can he make it three in a row? Stenhouse talks about his impending return to the track. By Luke Meredith. AP Photos.
INDYCAR:
CAR--INDYCAR-INDIANAPOLIS 500
UNDATED - JR Hildebrand doesn't dwell on last year's Indianapolis 500, the race he would have won if he hadn't crashed while leading coming out of the final turn. There's no looking back for Hildebrand or any of the other IndyCar Series participants: Indianapolis Motor Speedway opens Saturday for what's expected to be the most wide-open Indy 500 in years.
