McIlroy extends lead to 4 shots at Dubai Desert Classic (The Associated Press)
Rory McIlroy extended his lead to four shots with a 6-under 66 in the third round of the Dubai Desert Classic on Saturday.

With an overall 20-under 196, McIlroy can challenge the tournament winning record of 22 under, set by Stephen Gallacher in 2013 and Thomas Bjorn in 2001. Denmark's Morten Orum Madsen, who shot a 9-under 63 on Friday, was second after a 66 with six birdies.
Elliott headlines 5 drivers in NASCAR Hall of Fame class (The Associated Press)
Bill Elliott headlined the sixth class of inductees into NASCAR's Hall of Fame, a group that included three champions, the first African-American winner and a driver with movie star looks. ''Awesome Bill From Dawsonville'' was NASCAR's 1988 champion, a 44-race winner and the first driver to win the Winston Million bonus in 1985 for winning three NASCAR crown jewel races. A 16-time winner of NASCAR's most popular driver award, Elliott won two Daytona 500s and the Southern 500 three times. His induction came one day after his 19-year-old son, Chase, was named by Hendrick Motorsports as the driver who will replace four-time champion Jeff Gordon in the iconic No. 24.
