BRISTOL, Tenn. -- 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. Nike Air Max Cheap Canada .

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina -- Soccer great Diego Maradona is urging fellow Argentines to leave Lionel Messi alone over the current stars decision to retire from Argentinas national team following its loss to Chile in the Copa America championship match.In an interview on La Red radio, Maradona also ridiculed people who have criticized Messi for missing his shot as Chile won a penalty shootout to take the title, questioning those who find fault with a soccer stars play without ever having touched a ball.Despite Argentinas loss, I consider Messi a winner, said Maradona, who led Argentina to victory in the 1986 World Cup.Although he earlier joined in the chorus of Argentines calling on Messi to stay with the national squad, Maradona toned that down Wednesday.Lets let Messi have his holidays, he said. From now on we have to build a unified idea and if Messi says `I dont want more, we will have to present another team.Maradona criticized the Argentine Football Association, whose national team hasnt won a major title since the Copa America tournament in 1993. We must have done something wrong because the AFA is the way it is. Argentine soccer is how it is, and we will be paying for it, he said..ddddddddddddIllustrating his dim view of the current national team, Maradona confirmed the authenticity of a leaked WhatsApp audio in which he implies to his 1986 teammates that their 1986 World Cup-winning squad was better than Messis. We didnt go to play against Chile. We went and beat Germany, he says. You know what I mean about the difference between one team and the other?Messi touched off an uproar in Argentina with his abrupt resignation from the national team after Sundays game with Chile.He is the national teams career leading scorer with 55 goals in 113 international appearances, but he has never led Argentina to a major title, losing championship matches to Brazil in the 2007 Copa America, Germany in the 2014 World Cup and Chile in the 2015 and 2016 Copa America.Thats it, Ive already tried enough, Messi told the Argentine network TyC Sports after the latest loss to Chile. It pains me more than anyone not being able to be a champion with Argentina, but thats the way it is. It wasnt meant to be, and unfortunately I leave without having achieved it. ' ' '
