Trevor Bayne to run Darlington Trucks, first NASCAR race in two years

With the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series set for its first race at Darlington Raceway since 2011, one of Niece Motorsports‘ drivers will invoke memories of that season. On Monday, the team announced Trevor Bayne will make his Truck début in the #40 Chevrolet Silverado. It will be his first NASCAR race since 2018.

Zverev Rises To Anderson Challenge In New York

Alexander Zverev has contested numerous five-set battles in the opening rounds of Grand Slam events, but the World No. 7 avoided such an opening to his US Open campaign with an impressive win on Monday.

The fifth seed faced a serious challenge against 2017 runner-up Kevin Anderson on Arthur Ashe Stadium and he rose to the occasion, recording a 7-6(2), 5-7, 6-3, 7-5 victory after three hours and seven minutes. It was Zverev’s first victory since the resumption of the ATP Tour, having lost his opening match at the Western & Southern Open to former World No. 1 Andy Murray.

”I am actually quite happy with a first round like that,” said Zverev. “Kevin is not someone you usually play in a first round. This is a fourth round, quarter-final, semi-final match normally against him. I am extremely happy to be through.”

Zverev is one of the leading contenders to … Read the rest
