Kyle Busch would entertain the opportunity to pursue the one NASCAR championship that has eluded him – in the Gander Outdoor Truck Series – when his Cup career is over. “Why don't you let us run as many races as we want to run and then once we miss one, we're done?” Busch pondered after his victory Saturday in the TruNorth Global 250 truck race at Martinsville Speedway. “So if I go all the way to (the June 15 race at Iowa Speedway) in the trucks and run 10 races and can't go to Io...

Kirsten Gillibrand is working very hard on her arms and to show you she has a sense of humor.
