INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Kasey Kahne survived a crash-marred Brickyard 400 for his first NASCAR Cup victory in nearly three years.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Rookie William Byron bobbed and weaved through the final two laps Saturday and held off Paul Menard to win the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Indianapolis.

The 23-year-old former Wake Forest and Arizona State player set up the winning par with a nearly 50-foot putt from below the hole. Amateur Sam Burns of LSU tied for sixth at 18 under after a 66.
