SONOMA, Calif. -- Tony Stewart was running lap times about a second faster than expected at Indianapolis Motor Speedway when a blown tire caused him to wreck this week in a Goodyear test. Goodyear officials said Stewarts accident 17 laps into Tuesdays 20-lap run was the only incident of the two-day test. The three-time NASCAR champion wasnt injured. "Our test speeds were extremely fast at Indianapolis," Greg Stucker, Goodyears director of racing, said in a statement Friday. "Tony was approaching the end of a very strong 20-lap run, with his lap times as much as a second faster than what has become the norm at Indianapolis at that point of a run. "It appears that increased, sustained speed over that run generated a significant amount of heat, which eventually caused the right-front to go down." Stewart wasnt upset with Goodyear over the incident, which he said "destroyed the car, so it was a good hit. "I am not really sure what the cause of it was, but thats part of tire testing," Stewart said. "Thats why you go to the test. Im sure theyll learn something from it and well go on." Joey Logano was one of six drivers at the test and said Stewart easily had the fastest car at Indy. Also at the test were Greg Biffle, Clint Bowyer, Kyle Busch and Ryan Newman, the defending race winner. Stewart, an Indiana native, has two Brickyard victories and puts a huge emphasis on the July race. Following Stewarts tire failure, Logano said Goodyear made adjustments "to figure out a way to knock some speed out of these race cars." Teams were given a different left side tire to use and will wait to see what Goodyear decides to bring for the race. "I know when we left they were going to go back and discuss where they wanted to be, but I think theyre going in the right direction on making sure they have the security in the tire, making sure its safe," Logano said. "Its definitely a very big challenge when you come to a race track and you go faster and youre already on edge. Youve got to come back with something thats even more durable and thats hard." Indianapolis has been a difficult track for Goodyear, and the tire brought to the 2008 race was not durable enough to make it more than a dozen or so laps. NASCAR was forced to call a caution roughly every 10 laps to force teams to change tires. "The thing about Indianapolis is the tough conditions the cars and the tires have to endure," Stucker said. "The surface is very abrasive, the long straightaways and short chutes are fast, cornering is tough with very little banking. Combine that with this new car package, and youve got conditions that put a lot of stress on the tires." Justin Pugh Jersey . I wondered how NHL coaches would feel about a playoff schedule that allowed them to open a best-of-seven series on the road, which many claim to favour, yet still gave them the precious home-ice edge for a seventh game.

Even if New Englands offence stumbles a bit out of the gate, their defence can help them stay in games, especially in the AFC East with the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets in the first two weeks. ... ts-Jersey/.

Multiple sources have confirmed to and ESPN Deportes that the club has interest in free agent Japanese shortstop Takashi Toritani. As of Wednesday afternoon, no formal offer had been made and according to one source, term and dollar figures hadnt been exchanged. Its believed Toritani, a client of super agent Scott Boras, will seek a multi-year deal. Toritani, 33, is an 11-year veteran of the Japan Central League, having played his entire career with the Hanshin Tigers. A left-handed slap hitter, Toritani has posted back-to-back seasons with on-base percentages of better than .400 and hasnt posted an OBP lower than .350 since 2005, when he was 24. Toritani has a career 11.6-percent walk rate and has amassed more than 1,600 hits. Considered a sure-handed defender, a move to the other side of the infield wouldnt be an issue. The Blue Jays have a number of internal options at second base but none is appealing. Maicer Izturis is returning from a season lost to injury.dddddddddddd. It was mid-April in Baltimore when Izturis tore the lateral collateral ligament in his left knee after slipping on the dugout steps. Entering the final year of his three-year, $9 million contract, Izturis has value as a utility infielder but the Jays wont know the degree to which hes recovered until they see him play in spring training. Over his career, Izturis has proven more valuable as a utility player anyway. Ryan Goins provides elite defence but his glove doesnt hide his career .531 OPS in more than 300 big league plate appearances. Steve Tolleson is out of options in 2015 and hes best served in a platoon because he struggles badly against right-handed pitching. The wild card is 23-year-old Devon Travis, who the Jays acquired from Detroit for Anthony Gose last month. He was ranked as the Tigers top prospect at the time of the deal and has high offensive upside. The problem is Travis hasnt played higher than Double-A and so its unsafe to assume hell be ready to break camp.
