I was able to fend off a little bit but I mean three of them, got the better of me," he said. Blough told them he did not want to fight, one of the attackers said “I don’t give a f—and I don’t care if I go to jail,” according to the arrest report. The suspects continued to beat Blough until neighbors came out and the suspects ran away.

    Jeff Gordon straightened his left arm to expose bruises around his elbow. They were the only ones he could show without taking off his clothes. The four-time NASCAR champion has black-and-blue marks from the middle of his back to the back of his knees, remnants from hours of practicing driver changes before the Rolex 24 at Daytona this weekend. Gordon, who is driving in the prestigious endurance race for the first time in a decade, shared pictures of his injuries with his Wayne Taylor Racing teammates. ''They looked like war wounds,'' teammate Jordan Taylor said Friday. ''He looked like he...

    Fans at Daytona International Speedway are defending and displaying their Confederate flags. At NASCAR’s first race in the South since the racing series and its tracks urged fans to no longer wave the banner, dozens of Confederate flags were scattered throughout the vast infield. The first motorhome inside the Turn 4 tunnel has one flying high above it, and it doesn’t take long to reach double figures when counting them on a stroll through the infield. They’re on clothing, coolers and cars, and even tattooed on skin.

    DAYTONA BEACH -- NASCAR stirred up controversy this week when officials announced that fans should turn over their confederate flags for the Stars and Stripes, but some fans are still showing up with their flags. "We have the stars and bars...But the tallest flag out there is the stars and stripes. The way it ought to be,” said local NASCAR fan Jim Higginbotham. Higginbotham said he’s proud to be American and a southerner. "I see that flag I don't see racism at all I see southern pride,” he said. Higginbotham isn't alone. Hundreds of flags were flying high above the...

    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Kyle Busch will miss the Daytona 500 after suffering a broken right leg and left foot following a hard crash into an interior concrete wall during an Xfinity Series race Saturday at Daytona International Speedway.

His right leg was placed in an air cast before he was transported...

    In a stunning move just two days before the season-opening Daytona 500, NASCAR suspended Kurt Busch indefinitely on Friday after a judge said the former champion almost surely strangled and beat an ex-girlfriend last fall and there was a "substantial likelihood" of more domestic violence from him in the future. NASCAR said Busch would not be allowed to race or participate in any NASCAR activities until further notice given the "serious nature of the findings and conclusions" made by the Delaware judge. "Kurt Busch and his Stewart-Haas Racing team are fully aware of our position and why this decision was...

    Jimmie Johnson held off Dale Earnhardt Jr. at the wire on Sunday, taking the checkered flag in the 2013 Daytona 500. Earnhardt Jr. finished second, running out of room as he tried to chase down Johnson on the last lap. Danica Patrick, who ran in the top-10 all day, finished eighth after losing ground on the last lap. The Daytona 500 started slow enough, with drivers content to wait things out in the early going. A wreck on lap 32 was our first real action of the day as numerous cars got caught up in the mess, leading to the...
