BRISTOL, Tenn. Raphael Varane Jersey . -- Kevin Harvick believes Bristol Motor Speedway is on to something. Now, he wants similar tracks to follow that lead.Bristol officials used a tacky resin to polish the track and improve grip on the bottom lane so racers would have a two-groove layout and be able to pass down low.Harvick used the lower groove several times to stick and move past drivers on the way to winning the rain-delayed, water-logged Sprint Cup race Sunday night.The past few years, Harvick said there was no use taking the low side of the high-banked, concrete track because cars were three-or-four tenths of a second slower.Tonight, you could hold your ground, you could get past lapped cars, he said. It gave everybody an option to do something different and, as a driver, thats what you want.Harvick pointed out a couple of other similar circuits in need of Bristols grippy approach.Martinsville needs to call Bristol and say, `What do we need to do to make a second lane come in? because they did a great job here, he said. I think that would be the first place I would attack and do something different.Drivers and fans had complained that Bristol had become a top-heavy, one-groove race track where passes were far less frequent than in the bump-and-run days of Darrell Waltrip, Rusty Wallace and the late Intimidator, Dale Earnhardt.Harvick gushed how Bristols gamble could become a blueprint to improve the on-track product.On Friday night, Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch were locked in a pass-happy duel before Busch eventually wrecked and Keselowski ran out of gas -- all after 295 of 300 scheduled laps.I think Friday night was probably one of the beset Xfinity races Ive ever sat and watched, Harvick said with a grin. Just really happy to see Bristol back where it is this weekend.---Other things weve learned from the weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway:BAD LUCK BUSCH: Kyle Busch was in position to win both the Sprint Cup and Xfinity races, yet left the track wrecked both times. On Friday night, he tangled with rival Brad Keselowski and wound up in the wall with five laps to go. On Sunday, Busch led a race-high 256 laps, yet got hit by Justin Allgaier after a spin. Busch threw his helmet and called both Allgaier and his spotter the biggest moron(s) out there.GOOD LUCK BUESCHER: Rookie Chris Buescher, the surprise winner at Pocono earlier this month, moved into 30th in points which would qualify him for NASCARs Chase. Buescher left here 13 points ahead of David Ragan. Buescher has three races left before the 16-man playoffs begin.GORDONS FINISH: Jeff Gordon wound up 11th, his best showing in the four races hes run in the No. 88 car replacing injured Dale Earnhardt Jr. Gordon wont drive in Michigan because of a prior commitment. Earnhardt is scheduled for tests and Hendrick Motorsports will update his status early next week.WHERES JGR?: The Joe Gibbs Racing quartet looked like it would sweep the top spots after it finished 1-2-3-5 in qualifying Friday night. It didnt finish that way Sunday. Denny Hamlin led the way in third while pole-sitter Carl Edwards was sixth. Both Matt Kenseth and Kyle Busch were caught up in accidents that ended their chances earlier than expected.ITS FOOTBALL TIME: Bristol now goes gridiron. Crews almost immediately started the expected 19-day process to convert the iconic NASCAR track into a frenzied football field in time for No. 9 Tennessee to face Virginia Tech. The infield will become the playing surface in a construction project that involves more than 10,000 tons of stones for the base. The Vols and Hokies play Sept. 10 and then Western Carolina and East Tennessee play a week later. Sergio Ramos Real Madrid Jersey .C. -- Rodney Hood connected from all over the court while freshman Jabari Parker was busy swatting shots and scoring in transition. Gareth Bale Real Madrid Jersey .C. -- Charlotte Bobcats coach Steve Clifford said after all of these years in the NBA hes still amazed at some of the things LeBron James does. http://www.realmadridteampro.com/luka-modric-real-madrid-jersey/ . -- Vincent Lecavalier got everything but the desired result in his return to Tampa Bay. ZAGREB, Croatia -- In a battle of big servers, Argentinas Juan Martin Del Potro beat Croatias Ivo Karlovic 6-4, 6-7 (6), 6-3, 7-5 on Friday to leave the two teams tied at 1-1 following the opening singles matches in the Davis Cup final.Del Potro, the 2009 U.S. Open champion who is capping a comeback after two injury-hit years, made the crucial break in the 11th game of the fourth set with a spectacular return of Karlovics serve.Del Potro broke the Croat in the opening game of the match and then held on to his serve to take the opening set. In the second, the Argentine appeared poised to clinch the tie-break after having a double set point, but Karlovic saved both and then sent the home crowd into frenzy as he forced two successive errors from Del Potro.Del Potro cruised through the third set to get back into control.After losing the second set, I was a bit frightened, Del Potro said. Ivo was playing real well, but I managed to regain composure.Karlovic, who at 37 became the oldest man to play singles in a Davis Cup final in nearly a century, served 35 aces while Del Potro had 15.After winning the second set, I was hoping to continue like this, but my level went down a bit and his level went higher, said Karlovic who returned to the team after a four-year absence.Doubles are played Saturday while reverse singles are scheduled Sunday, with team captains refusing to reveal which pairs they will use.Croatian team captain Zeljko Krajan said he was satisfied with the result after the opening singles.Overall today I have to say Im satisfied, Krajan said. It was hard to believe that we could have two wins today. We remain positive and optimistic.Argentina is the only nation in the Davis Cups 1116-year history to have reached four finals without winning the title. Isco Real Madrid Jersey. Croatia is targeting its second title after beating Slovakia in the final in 2005.Croatia won the opening singles rubber after Marin Cilic struggled past Argentinas Federico Delbonis 6-3, 7-5, 3-6, 1-6, 6-2.Cilic, the 2014 U.S. Open champion, looked like cruising to the expected easy victory until Delbonis broke the Croat twice in the third set, which ended on a Cilic double fault.I struggled on my return, said Cilic, the highest-ranked player in the final at 6th position. His (high) toss on his serve is a bit specific and it gave me problems.I never said the match would be easy. After all, this is the final, Cilic said.Delbonis started the fourth set 3-0 with a double break, and Cilic conceded the set on serve by netting an easy smash.But after a bathroom beak, Cilic came back renewed and broke Delbonis to start the fifth set on the indoor hard court at Arena Zagreb. Cilic suddenly rediscovered his serving groove, and didnt give Delbonis a chance.I took a short break, talked to the coach, Cilic said. I was determined to start playing better.Cilic broke again in the seventh game, and served out after 3 1/2 hours, two hours longer than most expected.Cilic served 17 aces in the match watched by some 12,000 fans, including thousands of Argentinians who outshouted the home supporters. Among them was former Argentine soccer star Diego Maradona.His serve was the key, Delbonis said. In the first two sets, he was serving unbelievably. When I started making some returns, things changed.
