Yani Tseng leads Yokohama Tire LPGA Classic (The Associated Press)
Yani Tseng closed with an eagle and a birdie for an 8-under 64 and a one-stroke lead Friday in the Yokohama Tire LPGA Classic. Tseng hit a 6-iron to 4 feet to set up the eagle on the par-5 eighth hole just before play was delayed for about 90 minutes because of lightning and rain, then took the outright lead on the par-4 ninth with her sixth birdie of the day. ''I can't wait to come out tomorrow,'' Tseng said.
Stewart claims he didn't see man on track before fatal crash (The Associated Press)
NASCAR star Tony Stewart said he didn't see a driver walking on a dirt track in upstate New York last year before he struck and killed him, and noted the racer was impaired by marijuana and shouldn't have been outside his car, according to court papers filed Friday. Kevin Ward Jr.'s family filed a lawsuit this month that accused Stewart of gross negligence, saying he gunned his engine and put his card into a skid as the 20-year-old Ward walked on the track after a crash at Canandaigua Motorsports Park on Aug. 9, 2014. Stewart's attorney, Brian Gwitt, argued in an answer to the Wards' lawsuit that the racing star didn't see the crash Ward had been involved in and didn't realize anyone was standing on the track.
