    (CNN)Carlos Sainz secured his first victory in F1 during a dramatic British Grand Prix on Sunday where Alfa Romeo's Zhou Guanyu survived a huge crash on the first lap. The race had to be restarted after Zhou's car was flipped upside down and crashed into a fence having been clipped shortly after the start. It caused a lengthy delay but the driver was eventually declared fit after being assessed at the medical center. After the race restarted, Red Bull drivers Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez sustained damage to their cars and dropped down the pecking order allowing Ferrari's Sainz and Charles Leclerc to establish a strong lead.

    FOUNTAIN, Colo. (CBS4) – The revving engine of a race car outside Fountain Wednesday morning was the sound of a major breakthrough in a technology that could one day change the lives of people who are mobility challenged. The man behind the wheel of the 850 horsepower NASCAR Cup race car was German Aldana Zuniga of Miami. Despite being paralyzed from the waist down, he used a microchip implanted in his brain to drive lap after lap. (credit: CBS) “It’s an amazing experience. Since my accident, I don’t have mobility below my waist, so this is my first time driving a car,” Zuniga said. Nine years after a life-altering car wreck, Zuniga used his thoughts to drive Wednesday. It’s a technological breakthrough pioneered by a team led by Dr. Scott Falci, a Colorado neurosurgeon with Health ONE’s Falci Institute for Spinal Cord Injuries. The group also included electrical engineer Dr. Harry Direen, and Kevin Davis with the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine’s Miami Project to Cure Paralysis. For more than a year, they, along with others, worked tirelessly...
    DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) — Former NASCAR Cup Series champions Chase Elliott and Kevin Harvick will start at the rear of the field Sunday at Darlington Raceway. Denny Hamlin will be back there, too. Elliott and Harvick had Saturday in practice. Hamlin had problems in qualifying later in the day. All three will have lots of ground to make up on pole-sitter Joey Logano. Logano reached 170.720 mph and turned a fast lap of 28.805 seconds to clinch the top spot in qualifying, edging Kyle Larson. Larson will start second, one row ahead of Hendrick Motorsports teammate Christopher Bell and Martin Truex Jr. Brothers Kyle and Kurt Busch will share the third row, assuming Kyle makes the race. The younger Busch is awaiting the birth of his second child through a surrogate mother. Trevor Bayne is on standby in case Busch has to leave Darlington for the birth. Busch shared tips with Bayne following his qualifying run. “I think it’s always a hard decision, but I think you can live down missing a race but you’ll never live...
    When someone tells you they were riding down a San Francisco hill in a car shaped like an old sea-captain’s sweater, you might assume they’re describing a weird dream they had. But that’s exactly what Katherine Ross Ward and her friends will be doing this weekend, as she competes in SFMOMA’s first soapbox-derby race since the 1970s. Ward got involved initially as a joke. “I heard about it through the grapevine and thought, ‘Oh my god, obviously someone should make a cardigan.’ A CAR-digan. What else would you do?” Her first job in Texas was sewing clothing destined for George W. Bush’s White House, so with her skills she decided to knit a soft sculpture. “It’s a giant fisherman-style sweater/cardigan, and we’re using giant knitting needles to make it,” she explains. On April 10, her group will join more than 50 teams to coast in weird, gravity-powered cars — a whale skull, a giant pencil, a grassy fungus — down a hill in San Francisco’s McLaren Park. It’s a re-creation of famous soapbox derbies in 1975 and 1978 in which...
    (CNN)Many couples have an interesting story about how they first met, but few offer a window into their relationship quite like that of racing drivers Kristen and Wayne Matlock."We met in the desert," Wayne tells CNN Sport, sitting by the glistening Pacific Ocean on a bright Baja California morning."I'd previously broken my arm about a week prior on a quad [bike]," Kristen adds. "It was a borrowed quad from a friend's sister, and I was trying to keep up with the guys and came off of a jump and snapped my wrist on it.""I still wanted to go to the desert because it was fun, but I wasn't able to ride so I was stuck at camp, and this guy was there and spotted me and decided that he didn't need to go for a ride that moment. He wanted to hang out with Kristen," she laughs.That fateful moment in the desert was in 2003; a little over three years later, the two were married, sealing a relationship which has become the stuff of legend in off-road racing.Read MoreThe Matlocks...

The 22-year-old Briton fuelled some chatter when he said in Bahrain last Sunday that he hoped he had given Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff a selection headache "not just for 2022, maybe sooner". "That was just a throwaway remark in the heat of the moment," Russell told reporters at Formula One's season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Thursday. "Obviously emotions were high and what have you. I have a contract and am a Williams driver for 2021." Valtteri Bottas is out of contract at the end of next season, when Mercedes-managed Russell will be firmly in the frame for a move. The youngster is still waiting to hear whether Hamilton, still isolating in...
    Back in 2016, the Las Vegas Motor Speedway race in March was a wet affair. When the race was halted due to the rainy weather, former NASCAR driver, Cole Pearn, found out that it was windy the hard way. At the time, Pearn was Crew Chief to the #78 car housing Martin Truex Jr. Apparently, when he tried to get the cover on the car, the wind blew it right off and it practically smothered him. Eventually, he was rescued by the rest of the crew, though there were plenty of laughs. The Furniture Row Racing driver enjoyed a decent qualifying session, with 10th on the grid. In race conditions, that was the best that the #78 car could muster up, as Truex Jr. ended up 11th fastest.   What else happened at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in 2016? While all this was going on, Kurt Busch took pole at the Kobalt 400. Unfortunately, he could not make it last and Brad Keselowski emerged as the winner. The pole man eventually ended his race down in 9th place...
    Trump boat parade in Texas ends with some boats underwater, officials say These restaurant chains are unveiling new designs inspired by the pandemic Ross Chastain remains encouraged after scrape with Hamlin in final Darlington dash © Chris Keane Getty Images Ross Chastain remains encouraged after scrape with Hamlin in final Darlington dash Ross Chastain has finished runner-up four times this season, including twice in the last three NASCAR Xfinity Series races — all without a win. Saturday’s latest result at rugged Darlington Raceway added to that total with a dramatic twist. The Kaulig Racing driver went toe-to-toe with Cup Series visitor Denny Hamlin in a late-race slugfest for the victory, but he couldn’t avoid Hamlin’s car in a contest of crossover moves on the next-to-last lap. Brandon Jones was the beneficiary, slipping by both contenders at the end of Saturday’s Sport Clips Haircuts VFW 200 for his third win of the season.
