DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Joey Logano isnt in the racing business to make friends. He wants to win trophies. Thats what his owner pays him to do.He says he didnt mean to turn Kurt Busch, when Busch was running third, on the final lap Saturday at Daytona International Speedway. But he did.And in doing so, hes not going to get any benefit of the doubt.He made an aggressive mistake, Busch said. You cant go from fifth to first. Theres just no shot at it. Its a shame that we ended up spun around and wrecked.Buschs crew chief Tony Gibson, typically one of the more reserved and easygoing crew chiefs in the garage, tweeted simply: Stupid is as stupid does!!! #22Logano said the accident was unintentional, just a product of restrictor-plate racing.The last thing I want to do is hit someone like that, Logano said. Unfortunately, it happened.As the social media anti-Logano craze continued, Loganos tweet about the crash also included congratulations to his teammate Brad Keselowski?for winning.Hate I got into @KurtBusch at the end, Logano tweeted. Got free turning under him & tried to catch it.Logano probably wont worry too much about it. His car owner, Roger Penske, has his back. Plus, his 12 victories since the start of 2014 is the most of any driver in the series.Still, he has had his share of beefs with other drivers throughout the years, from Matt Kenseth to Kevin Harvick to Tony Stewart.Joey has taken, I think, some undue criticism from my perspective based on some of the things that have happened, Penske said. Certainly you can go back, and I could name three or four things that certainly werent his fault.But quite honestly, I think hes one of the best drivers on the racetrack out there day in and day out, and sure, people make mistakes.What is strange to Penske is the fact that Logano doesnt get a pass for any of his mistakes. That probably comes from what other drivers feel is an aloof or unsympathetic attitude.That is what Matt Kenseth cited as a point of frustration in his retaliation of Logano at Martinsville last year.A lot of these drivers can knock somebody off the track, and they say, Hey, Im sorry, you follow me, and they move on, Penske said. They dont let Logano do that. ... Im behind him 300 percent.And Ill talk to Kurt, he didnt do it on purpose. It could have been a big mess down there tonight, too, and at the end of the day, thats racing as far as Im concerned.Xfinity Series: Aric Almirola gets that winAlmirola doesnt have any mementos of his first Xfinity Series win, the one in 2007 where he started the race at The Milwaukee Mile but the tardy Denny Hamlin got in the car after arriving from Sonoma and drove the car across the finish line in front of everyone else.By the time the race was over, Almirola wasnt even at the track. But he still got credit for the win.I have nothing, Almirola said. I didnt take anything from it. I didnt take the money. I didnt take the trophy. I didnt take any pictures in Victory Lane. I left before the race was over.That was not my race to win. I started the race, I qualified on the pole, I led however many laps at the start of the race when they called me down pit road but I was not in the car when it crossed the start-finish line. Denny Hamlin won that race.Almirola feels he won his first Xfinity race -- for real -- Friday at Daytona International Speedway.When they called me at the shop that week to tell me how thankful they were and Joe [Gibbs] and J.D. [Gibbs] gave me the trophy, I took it over to the [Xfinity] shop and gave it to [crew chief] Dave Rodgers, Almirola said. I felt he deserved it. He made the car good enough for me to qualify on pole and lead all those laps and then Denny to get in and win the race. Dave has that trophy I think. Air Max Baratas Spain . Burris threw two TD passes, including a key 15-yard fourth-quarter strike to Bakari Grant that effectively countered a Toronto comeback bid and led Hamilton to a 33-19 victory. Air Max Baratas .Y. - Rob Manfred was promoted Monday to Major League Baseballs chief operating officer, which may make him a candidate to succeed Bud Selig as commissioner. https://www.zapatillasbaratasspain.es/zapatillas-yeezy-baratas-spain-d1188.html . Barcelonas entertaining victory ensured the defending Spanish champions retained their share of the league lead with Atletico Madrid two rounds ahead of their meeting in the capital. Real Madrid needed a late goal by substitute Jese Rodriguez to earn a 3-2 victory at Valencia to stay in third place and three points behind its title rivals. Air Jordan Falsas . LUCIE, Fla. Replica Jordan España . -- Stanfords Kevin Danser knelt on one knee and hardly moved on the sideline as Michigan State celebrated its Rose Bowl victory and his Cardinal teammates made their way to the locker room. USC?linebacker Osa Masina is under criminal investigation in two states -- California and Utah -- for separate incidents, a spokesman for the Cottonwood Heights (Utah) Police Department confirmed Tuesday.Police documents obtained Tuesday showed?authorities are looking into allegations of sexual assault in the Utah case, but no charges have been filed.We have an active investigation on Osa Masina, Cottonwood Heights Police Department Sgt. Dan Bartlett said. We are working with [the Los Angeles Police Department], who also has an active investigation.Bartlett would not confirm any specific details about the investigation, but he did say a search warrant was served to Masina on campus at USC last week. Documents show the alleged incident happened July 30, before Masina reported to USC training camp.The Los Angeles Police Department on Tuesday said it has interviewed Masina in relation to a case it is investigating but would not provide any further information regarding his involvement or the nature of the case.Bartlett said the alleged incident in Utah happened after an alleged incident in Los Angeles.Masinas family has retained Salt Lake City-based attorney Greg Skordas, who confirmed there are two incidents being investigated and that Masina -- a Utah native who was a standout player at Brighton High School -- remains in Los Angeles.What was taken [during the search] I cant talk about, but apparently they are going to do their investigation based on that search warrant, Skordas said.TThe only discipline Masina has faced, as of Tuesday afternoon, has come from the athletic department, Skordas said.dddddddddddd He will not travel with the team for Saturdays game against?Alabama?in Arlington, Texas. He did, however, practice with the team on Tuesday.A sophomore inside linebacker, Masina is listed at No. 2 on USCs depth chart. He made 25 tackles in 12 games last year.USC is aware of the investigation involving student-athlete Osa Masina, the school said in a statement. USC is cooperating fully with authorities in Utah, the lead agency in the investigation. Due to privacy laws and to protect the rights of our students, we are not able to discuss this matter further.USC coach Clay Helton repeatedly cited privacy laws when asked about the investigations after practice on Tuesday and said he will defer to the university when it comes to discipline.Really, as a coach, youre taken out of it, Helton said. This is a university and a policy and Im confident in the guidance of the university here, so theyll let me know.Quarterback Max Browne acknowledged that news about the investigation could cause a distraction but said the team will try to stay focused.Yeah, its tough, but at the end of the day, weve had a lot of distractions in the past, Browne said, and well leave that to Coach Helton to address.The Associated Press contributed to this report.
