''Any time there's fans in the stands there's maybe a heightened sense of, this is a real game and it might raise everybody's play,'' said Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw, who lives in the Dallas area during the offseason.
NASCAR promised radical changes to the 2021 schedule and delivered Wednesday with six road courses, the first dirt race for the Cup Series since 1970 and new stops in Nashville, Tennessee, and Austin, Texas.

Michigan International Speedway, Dover International Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway each lost one of two Cup Series points races.
