Punch Out: Clint Bowyer, Ryan Newman end All-Star Race with fight

Clint Bowyer and Ryan Newman fought after the NASCAR All-Star Race on Saturday night, Bowyer throwing punches through Newman’s window after the cool-down lap. The two cars had tangled on the track several times during NASCAR’s prime-time spectacle and tempers flared after the cool-down lap. Bowyer looked like a Rock’em-Sock’em Robot as he rotated punches at the sitting Newman. Bowyer said Newman’s actions warranted a response. Newman believes Bowyer should be “embarrassed” with himself.

Horsing around: Riderless colt races to Preakness finish

Unencumbered by a jockey and suddenly free to run wherever he darn pleased, Bodexpress decided to take a shot at winning the Preakness. Taking one of the most memorable trips in the 149-year history of Pimlico Race Course, Bodexpress followed the leaders without a rider on board and at one point appeared to be a contender in the 13-horse race. He was knocked down to last because, well, a horse can’t be declared a winner without a rider.
