One family's quest, one endurance test

Indianapolis 500

Marco Andretti finished second as a 19-year-old rookie at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 2006, losing on the final straight. But that is the highlight so far for Andretti at the Brickyard, where his family is winless since his legendary grandfather Mario brought home his lone victory in 1969. Since then talk of the "Andretti Curse" has popped up frequently at Indy, but Andretti, 26, now seems to have all the tools needed to end it. Story, 6C

Coca-Cola 600

Three times since 2006, the most grueling race in NASCAR has belonged to the patient, mild-mannered Kasey Kahne, left. Tonight's race at Charlotte Motor Speedway is another chance for Kahne, 33, and his long-standing right-hand man, crew chief Kenny Francis, to play the waiting game and get the Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet just right as day turns into night. Kahne starts sixth in tonight's race, with Denny Hamlin on the pole. Story, 6C

    TAMPA — Ever wonder what in the world goes through Jameis Winston's mind when he tries to fit the ball in a keyhole as he is being dragged to the turf like he was during Thursday night's 12-8 preseason win over the Jaguars?
