    Daytona Beach, FL ( – IndyCar Series drivers Scott Dixon and Tony Kanaan as well as NASCAR Sprint Cup Series competitors Jamie McMurray and Kyle Larson gave Chip Ganassi Racing the victory in Sundays 53rd running of the Rolex 24 at Daytona. Dixon, a three-time IndyCar champion and winner of the 2008 Indianapolis 500, drove Ganassis No. 02 Riley-Ford DP during the closing stint of this 24-hour endurance race on the 3.56-mile road course at Daytona International Speedway. With less than an hour to go, Dixon put the No. 02 car in front for good following a round of pit stops. A full-course caution set up a shootout to the finish with a little more than seven minutes left in the race. Dixon held off Sebastien Bourdais, driving the No. 5 Action Express Racing Corvette DP, at the finish by 1.333 seconds. Action Express Racing won last years Rolex 24 at Daytona. Jordan Taylor had Wayne Taylor Racings No. 10 Corvette DP in contention to win the race during the final hour, but the team was forced to make a driver change in the closing minutes. Taylor was nearing the four-hour time limit for a driver on track. Ricky Taylor hopped in the car and drove it to a third- place finish, crossing the line 1 minute, 7 seconds behind. Dixon won this prestigious race for the second time in his career. His first victory at Daytona occurred in 2006 when he shared driving duties with Dan Wheldon and Casey Mears in a Ganassi entry. The car was very consistent, and I think we had good speed, but everybody pulled their weight, Dixon said. Everybody did what they needed to do, and thats what gets you through this 24-hour. Everybody kept the car in one piece. You have to be there at the end. Youve got to try and look after the car so you have the speed at the end to try and compete for the win, and we definitely had some obstacles obviously with the 5 car being very quick and the 10 I thought was going to be the one to beat. With strategy and trying to save a little bit of fuel to open a window up helped us to sort of hop them in the pits, and thats how we got it. McMurray became just the third driver to win both the Rolex 24 and the Daytona 500. He joined Mario Andretti and A.J. Foyt. McMurrays victory in the Daytona 500 happened in 2010. Its pretty unbelievable, McMurray said. Getting to come down and have the opportunity to run this race for Chip and Felix (Sabates, team co-owner) and knowing that you have a chance to win it every year that youre down here, it makes you want to come do it, and to get to be in that group with Mario and AJ is quite a feeling. Its also the first time Kanaan and Larson won the Rolex 24. Larson, the 2014 Sprint Cup rookie of the year, competed in this race for the second year in a row. Its a long race, and I thought I did a good job last night and then got to do a quick stint earlier today, and then Scott was in it for the last three- and-a-half hours, which was amazing, Larson said. We all had tons of confidence in Scott, and he pulled it out for us. It was a really good day for us. Kanaan won the Indianapolis 500 in 2013 and captured the IndyCar title in 2004. We felt a lot of pressure to win, but we knew we could do it, Kanaan said. It means a lot, and its one more to the resume for sure. Ganassi Racings previous wins in the Rolex 24 occurred in 2006-08, 11 and 13. Were watching Scott Dixon for the last three hours there drive, and you know, the focus is on Dixon and the focus was on whats going on the track, Ganassi said. It takes a team of people. It takes a team of drivers, a team of great drivers to be paired with McMurray and Larson and Kanaan, to pair those guys with Dixon, that was a great grouping. Manny Ramirez – Sixth-seeded Feliciano Lopez was a first-round winner on Monday at the Delray Beach Open tennis event. Satchel Paige Jersey. The 17-time Grand Slam champion, who lose three straight finals in Monte Carlo to Rafael Nadal from 2006-08, has not played in the tournament since 2011, when he lost to Jurgen Melzer in the quarterfinals. Moments after his Brooklyn Nets teammates ran out onto the court to congratulate him following their 100-98 overtime win over the Phoenix Suns on Friday night, Johnson could only shake his head at scoring only 13 points on 6-of-19 shooting. Kenny Lofton – Top seed Klara Zakopalova reached the second round, while former French Open champion Francesca Schiavone came up a loser Tuesday at the inaugural Rio Open tennis event. Ricky Vaughn Jersey. Make that, almost always subjective. Saturday at Carrow Road, the spirit of fair play trumped the rulebook, costing Norwich City three points.AFC Wimbledon manager Neil Ardley insists its a job half done after his sides late 1-0 win over Accrington in the League 2 play-off semi-final first leg. Tom Beeres injury-time winner handed the Dons the advantage going into the second leg in the north west on Wednesday, coming from their only shot on target.Ardley was delighted to be going into the second leg with the advantage, given several sides tasted heavy first-leg defeats over the weekend across the Football League, but is aware it is only half-time in the tie. We know its a job half done, Ardley told Sky Sports. I would have [settled for 0-0]. Seeing how the other games have gone it is important not to be chasing a situation in the second leg. Highlights of the Sky Bet League 2 semi final 1st leg between Wimbledon and Accrington I give Accrington so much respect, theyve done so well this season, but we had to make sure we stayed in tthe game and had some opportunities, and its worked out well today.dddddddddddd We attack together, we defend together.I thought it would be tight. They settled better than we did, but as weve seen in other play-off games you can lose the tie, so its very important to keep it alive.Ardley insists his side will not attempt to hold onto their lead with defensive football in the second leg, and wants another win as they set their eyes on Wembley.We have to go out and try and do the same. We cant go out and defend, you cant show them too much respect, we have to try and cause them a problem.Well try and win the game, thats the only way to do it. If theres 10 minutes to go and we still have the one-goal lead obviously well try and hold onto that, but well go there trying to win the game. AFC Wimbledons Tom Beere celebrates scoring his sides first goal of the game during the Sky Bet League Two play-off Stanley boss John Coleman was less than impressed with what he branded rough-house tactics by the Dons.Weve got a lot of players injured by late challenges and it was allowed to go unpunished, he added.There wasnt a card shown. and if people keep getting away with it, theyre going to keep on doing it.Weve always bounced back when things have gone against us this season and theres no reason why we cant do it again.Weve got to believe, weve got players who can win a game. Well keep plugging away. If theres any justice in this world, well win the game next week.
