NASCAR scores win with successful race inside LA Coliseum
LOS ANGELES — (AP) — Joey Logano won the exhibition Busch Light Clash on a temporary quarter-mile track built inside Memorial Coliseum for a made-for-TV spectacular intended to hype NASCAR's upcoming season. NASCAR moved the Clash to Los Angeles from Daytona International Speedway, its only home since its 1979 inception, as part of a focused effort to break from its dated traditions via innovative big ideas. A handful of Los Angeles sporting greats served as the grand marshals, and Jeff Gordon lit the cauldron built for the 1932 Summer Olympics before the race began. The name of the race was the same, but everything else about the 42nd running of The Clash was different. Nothing learned in Los Angeles will transfer into the Feb. 21 season-opening Daytona 500, but the race was the first for NASCAR's new car.wftv.com

Free Pitbull concert raises $1M for officer shot in line of duty
ORLANDO, Fla. - A free Pitbull concert held last month raised more than $1 million for the family of officer Kevin Valencia, who has been receiving treatment since he was shot in the head a year ago while responding to a hostage situation. They also hoped the event would highlight Kevin Valencia's ongoing struggle because they both feared that members of the community had forgotten that he's still receiving treatment. Kevin Valencia was receiving care at Shepherd Center, a brain and spinal cord rehabilitation center near Atlanta, until February, when he was moved back to Orlando. A GoFundMe account has been established to help pay for his medical expenses. Copyright 2019 by WKMG ClickOrlando - All rights reserved.
