Kyle Busch Wins Nationwide Race, Danica Patrick Leads Lap, Finishes 19th

Filed under: ,

As Kyle Busch motored to a comfortable victory in the Nationwide season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway Saturday, Danica Patrick led her first lap in NASCAR racing before settling for a 19th-place finish, nonetheless her best ever in the series.

Busch dominated the event before winning by about a second over Kevin Harvick. Series champion Brad Keselowski was third, followed by Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Trevor Bayne.

It was Busch's record-settiing 13th victory in the Nationwide series this year, and it clinched the owner's championship for Joe Gibbs Racing, even though Keselowski won the driver's title. Busch did not run in every race this year and thus did not compete for the driver's title.

"That says it all right there, boys!" Busch shouted on his radio as he took the checkered flag. "You guys are the stuff. I can't do it without you guys. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

"This is fun," he added while still circling the track. "This is what it is all about. I wish I had something for tomorrow, but we'll play with teammates tomorrow and try to get them one."

Bo Pelini Not a Candidate at Miami, According to Nebraska

Filed under: , ,

Bo Pelini has been rumored to be a candidate for the Miami coaching job, but on Thursday Nebraska denied such reports. Tom Osborne, Nebraska athletic director, commented on a report that Miami athletic director Kirby Hocutt had planned to speak with Pelini.

"Bo's never talked to me about anything like that," Osborne said. "If he got permission (to talk to Miami), he didn't get it from me."

Pelini refused to comment, saying, "I don't address rumor and innuendo." Pelini also said he hasn't asked anyone for permission to speak to another school.

Law Enforcement Probes NCAA Under Agent Act

Filed under: ,

While Cam Newton is crisscrossing the country picking up postseason awards, representatives of the Mississippi secretary of state's office are heading to Illinois to interview the man at the center of the infamous pay-for-play scandal involving the quarterback.

The officials want to talk with Kenny Rogers to see if Agent Act laws were violated during Newton's recruitment. Rogers, the former Mississippi State player who the NCAA ruled assisted Newton's father with the failed payment scheme to get his son to sign with that school, is scheduled to meet with officials Thursday in Waukegan, Ill.

"We'll certainly cooperate and answer whatever questions they ask," said Doug Zeit, Rogers' attorney and whose offices are in Waukegan. "Kenny Rogers isn't hiding anything from anybody."

The ongoing Newton investigation has involved everyone from the NCAA to the FBI, though the Auburn quarterback has been cleared to play by the NCAA as the top-ranked Tigers (13-0) prepare to face No. 2 Oregon (12-0) for the national championship on Jan. 10.

The Agent Act has been on the books for years, though it's rare for anyone to be prosecuted.
