Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

Po­cono Race­way flipped the switch on a so­lar en­ergy sys­tem that lead­ers say will make the NASCAR track the world’s largest so­lar-pow­ered sports fa­cil­ity. It will be par­tially run­ning this week­end and pro­vide power to the race­way for Sun­day’s Penn­syl­va­nia 500. It would be the first track to run on so­lar en­ergy.

Crew chief Steve Le­tarte, who has done it all with Jeff Gor­don ex­cept win a cham­pi­onship, signed a three-year ex­ten­sion with Hen­drick Mo­tor­sports and has earned more time to win that long-awaited fifth Cup cham­pi­onship.

Red Bull’s Se­bas­tian Vet­tel posted the best times dur­ing both 90-minute prac­tice ses­sions for Sun­day’s Hun­gar­ian Grand Prix.
