TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) — Aric Almirola finished a Stewart-Haas Racing rout at Talladega Superspeedway by taking his first win of the season with a last-lap pass that also put him in the third round of NASCAR's Cup playoffs. Almirola was part of a four-car Ford tandem that dominated the entire race. Kurt Busch, Clint Bowyer, Kevin Harvick and Almirola had pulled away from the field and were in control until a caution sent the race into overtime.

 

The Beecher Bobcats won the initial Sangamon Valley-River Valley Conference Tournament on Saturday night at Kankakee Community College. Beecher beat Cissna Park in Two sets. The Lady Panthers of Paxton Buckley Loda finished in 3rd place beating Watseka.
