Hamilton Makes NASCAR History as First Black Race Director

Hamilton Makes NASCAR History as First Black Race Director

Jusan Hamilton grew up working on cars in his grandfather's garage, and he has been in love with motorsports ever since. He dreamed of driving all the way from upstate New York's dirt tracks to the bright lights of NASCAR. When it didn't work out behind the wheel, he poured himself into a career behind the scenes of racing. Hamilton hit a milestone Saturday when he debuted as a NASCAR race director for the Xfinity Series event at Fontana. He is the first black race director in NASCAR history, and his co-workers say the 26-year-old can go any direction he chooses in the sport he loves.

Is Bill Murray a Good Luck Charm? Xavier Fans Hope So

Is Bill Murray a Good Luck Charm? Xavier Fans Hope So

Bill Murray is having quite the year. It's always a good time to be the iconic 66-year-old 'Ghostbusters' actor, but it turns out that this is a pretty good time to be a fan of his favorite sports teams, too. The Chicago-area native was front and center for his beloved Cubs’ first World Series victory in 108 years – singing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game;" appearing on 'Saturday Night Live' with team members; calling for Mayor Emanuel to cancel school; and even making one fan’s dream come true. He crashed postgame interviews, victory celebrations and even a White House press briefing, all for the love of his Cubbies. Now Murray has his sights set on March Madness, and his support of bracket-busting Xavier University has led some to speculate that perhaps there’s a little something more to his diehard fandom.
