IndyCar driver Tony Kanaan showed up at NASCAR’s season finale wearing a red Target hat.

It may have been a show of support.

It also may have been a sign of things to come.

Kanaan, a Miami native, spent time with car owner Chip Ganassi as well as close friend Juan Pablo Montoya at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Sunday. But Kanaan offered no insight into what changes might happen at Target Chip Ganassi Racing in the coming weeks.

Formula One’s German dominator just keeps on winning.

The four-time world champion won the U.S. Grand Prix in easy fashion Sunday, setting an F1 season record with his eighth straight victory behind another blistering drive that gave the field no chance to catch him.

For yet another year, thousands of fans take to the streets of Marc Marquez’ home town to congratulate the MotoGP rookie title winner.

The MotoGP World Championship concluded last weekend with the Valencian Grand Prix, and with a new title winner in Marc Marquez. His neighbors in Cervera, Lleida, took to the streets to celebrate upon the champion’s return, decorating the town with the name and number of the Repsol rider to provide a hero’s welcome.

As they did in 2010 for Marquez winning the 125cc World Championship and last year for the star’s Moto2 title triumph, fans banded together to make the homecoming an event to remember. Marquez – who debuted in Grand Prix racing with Repsol backing in 2008 – was accompanied by his brother – and Moto3 Rookie of the Year– Alex at a press conference, before being paraded through the streets of Cervera in an open-top car.
