Sports briefs: Save bucks, going to Sonoma

Infineon is offering a bus ride that includes transportation to and from the race and a premium reserved seat on race day. For more information, call (800) 732-8687.

Donovan deal nearly done

The Billy Donovan era is almost over — less than a week after he signed a contract with the Orlando Magic. Reports said Donovan, right, was close to being released from his five-year, $27.5 million contract, which would allow him to return to his college job at two-time defending champion Florida. Stan Van Gundy, left, who left the Miami Heat during their title run of last season, has been offered the Magic job, according to the Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel. The Magic might have to compensate the Heat in order to hire Van Gundy. One of the stipulations to Donovan’s departure from the Magic is that he not coach in the NBA for five years — the length of his Orlando deal.
