    “So, what did you do during quarantine?” One day your children or grandchildren may ask you this question.

    Two decades of heartbreak at his home track finally ended for Kurt Busch when a little bit of luck fell his way at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
    Busch happened to be the leader when a late caution Sunday night jumbled the field and put him in control of his 0-for-21 losing streak in his hometown. He had three magnificent restarts, including one in overtime, to steal a vital playoff race.
    The good timing helped Busch sneak his way into the third round of the NASCAR Cup playoffs. He had been ranked last among the 12 title contenders before the race; now he’s guaranteed a slot in the round of eight.

    Those in favor of playing high school sports in the midst of a global pandemic continued to make their voices heard on Saturday afternoon in downtown Carson City.
    Around 125 to 150 student-athletes, kids, parents and coaches stood at the intersection in front of the Nevada State Capitol protesting for the resumption of athletics in Northern Nevada.
    As of Thursday, eight states across the country – including Nevada – had no fall competitions scheduled, per the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS).
    The discussions since the initial decision to call off fall sports in Nevada in late July have only continued to become more nuanced.

    Ross Chastain snagged one of the coveted open Cup seats on Monday in a promotion at Chip Ganassi Racing to drive the No. 42 next season.

    Bryson DeChambeau was not the least bit concerned by the narrow fairways or the ankle-deep rough that shape Winged Foot into historically the toughest of all U.S. Opens. With his extra 40 pounds of muscle and mass, he wanted to pound it into submission with his driver, even if his errant shots were buried in deep grass.

    On Aug. 17, 2018, Pershing County School District opened its new athletic complex. At dusk, officials flipped the switch for the first time and lit up the field.
    “The district and community can be proud,” said Mike Mancebo, Pershing County school board member and Chief of the Lovelock Police Department. “This was accomplished with a lot of forethought and hard work from Tom Donaldson, Russell Fecht and Shaw Engineering.”
