NASCAR pioneer France dies at 74

Former NASCAR chairman Bob France Jr., one of the sport’s founding fathers who pushed it beyond its small-time Southern roots into a nationwide billion-dollar conglomerate, died at his Daytona Beach, Fla., home. He was 74. France’s death created a somber day during the Autism Speaks 400 in Dover, Del., where Martin Truex Jr. picked up his first career victory.

Tank parked for eight games

Bears defensive tackle Tank Johnson, who spent two months in the Cook County jail for violating probation on a gun charge, was given an eight-game suspension by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. Johnson becomes the third player this offseason to be given a lengthy suspension under Goodell’s toughened personal-conduct policy.
