Jimmie  Johnson  won  the Daytona 500  for  the second  time  in  his  already
illustrious  NASCAR  career after holding off  Dale Earnhardt Jr. on the final
lap Sunday.  Johnson,  the five-time  Sprint Cup Series champion,  grabbed the
lead for the final time just before a caution came for debris on the track and
beat Earnhardt, his Hendrick Motorsports teammate,  to the finish line by just
0.129 seconds.  Johnson won NASCAR's most prestigious race  for the first time
in 2006  and became the 10th different driver  to score multiple victories  in
this  event. Mark Martin finished third, followed by Brad Keselowski, the 2012
Sprint  Cup  titleholder, and  Ryan Newman. Danica  Patrick became the highest
finishing  female  in the Daytona  500 with  an eighth-place run. Patrick, who
started on the pole, also became the first woman to lead laps in this race.


New  York Yankees  outfielder Curtis Granderson will be sidelined for 10 weeks
after suffering a fractured right forearm during Sunday's spring training game
against  the Toronto Blue Jays. Granderson was drilled by an inside pitch from
Toronto left-hander J.A. Happ in the first inning. Granderson left the game in
obvious  pain and was initially diagnosed with a bruised forearm. He was taken
to a local hospital for X-rays, which revealed the fracture.


Matt  Kuchar  never trailed  in the  final match  Sunday en  route to  a 2 & 1
victory  over 2012 champion Hunter Mahan at the WGC-Match Play Championship in
Arizona.  Kuchar trailed for  just three holes the entire week en route to his
fifth  PGA Tour victory and first  in a World Golf Championships event.  Mahan
was trying  to join Tiger Woods  as the only repeat winners  at this event and
was the first champion to  reach the following year's final  since 2006 winner
Geoff Ogilvy made a return trip in 2007.  In the consolation match,  Jason Day
held off 2010 champion Ian Poulter, 1-up.


Top-seeded and defending champion David Ferrer captured his second consecutive
title  at Buenos  Aires by taking out  Stanislas Wawrinka in three sets at the
clay-court  final  of the Copa  Claro tennis event on  Sunday. The world No. 4
Spaniard  had  a second  set hiccup  before breezing through  the final set in
taking a 6-4, 3-6, 6-1 decision over the third-seeded Wawrinka. In 10 all-time
matchups  against the  native of  Switzerland, Ferrer  has been  victorious in
seven of the meetings.
