Kyle Busch takes $1M prize at Monster Energy NASCAR All-Star Race

iStock/Thinkstock(CONCORD, N.C.) — It might not have earned him any points, but that $1 million prize sure must have been sweet for Kyle Busch who won the Monster Energy All-Star Race on Saturday Night.

Not only did he take home the $1 million, he also recorded his first winning race in a Cup car at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

It wasn’t like Busch had no competition in the final, 10-lap stage.

Jimmie Johnson literally gave Busch a run for his money, hoping that Brad Keselowki would be able to slow Busch on the final restart, but Busch passed Keselowski — running on old tires because he had no fresh ones left — and Johnson on the first of the last 10 laps and never looked back, winning by 1.274 seconds.

Kyle Larson finished second, and Johnson finished third with Keselowski slipping to ninth.

The rest of the top 10 were Kurt Busch in fourth place, Jamie McMurray in fifth, Kevin Harvick in sixth, Chase Elliott in seventh, Joey Logano in eighth and Denny Hamlin in 10th.

Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series returns to action in earnest next Sunday at Charlotte for the Coca-Cola 600.

Turkish NBA player Enes Kanter claims he was detained in airport over political views

No Comments

By Suzie Liu

Ingram Publishing/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Enes Kanter, an NBA center with Turkish roots, is returning to the U.S. on Sunday after having been detained for several hours at a Romanian airport following statements he made criticizing Turkey’s president.

“The reason behind it is just, of course, my political views,” Kanter said of his detainment in a cellphone video captured at the airport on Saturday and posted to Twitter. “And the person who did it is Recep Tayyip Erdogan.”

Kanter, 25, a popular player with the Oklahoma City Thunder, is a supporter of Pennsylvania-based preacher Fethullah Gülen, a staunch critic of Erdogan. The Turkish president has blamed Gülen for the failed July 2016 coup that took place in the country. Erdogan has called for the extradition of Gülen, who has denied involvement in the attempted coup.

In the video posted online on Saturday, Kanter also refers to the widely circulated footage of Erdogan’s security detail beating up demonstrators in Washington, D.C. this week following his meeting with President Trump.

“You know he attacked the people in Washington,” Kanter said in the video. “He’s a bad, bad man. He’s a dictator.”

Kanter is now headed back to the U.S. via London. It is unclear how he is able to travel with an invalid passport.

In addition to the video, Kanter also posted a photo of himself giving a “thumbs up” on Twitter, acknowledging that his travel restrictions had been lifted.

He promised to elaborate on the situation at a press conference in New York, which is expected later on Sunday.

“Gonna give press conference tomorrow in NY,” he wrote on Twitter. “Got lots of things to say with lots of crazy stories.”

Kanter’s support for Gülen has caused a rift within his own family, according to the BBC, which reported that Kanter’s father published a letter disowning his son in the weeks following the failed coup attempt.
