    Say this about NASCAR's confusing and chaotic Sprint All-Star Race: At least it was entertaining. The latest running of NASCAR's annual showcase was lambasted by drivers and fans for its new format, yet it still produced one of the most memorable all-star races in a very long time.

    Kyle Larson knew he wasn't winning the fan vote to get into the Sprint All-Star race. Larson, who received some criticism for racing clean and not doing enough to beat Matt Kenseth on the final lap at Dover, was extremely aggressive coming down the stretch. ''I'm sure Chase is upset with me and has all of the reason in the world to be, but hey, we are racing for a million bucks and I haven't had a chance to do that before,'' Larson said.

    Rain washed out all track activity Friday at Charlotte Motor Speedway, which will now try to cram it's All-Star weekend into one day. The steady showers forced NASCAR to call off the scheduled Sprint Showdown, a race that will send five drivers not already qualified for the All-Star race, into the main event. NASCAR set the showdown field by points.

    It's easy to forget that Hornish was one of the greatest American open-wheel drivers of his generation after his failed move to NASCAR. There was a seven-year period where Hornish was a contender every week in IndyCar. Hornish is building a wagon that resembles a Volkswagen bus for his son, and a teardrop camper for the American Girl doll collection his two daughters share.

    IndyCar used the lack of action to hold a live social media chat with Ed Carpenter, Josef Newgarden and JR Hildebrand. ''It's still raining,'' Newgarden said at one point during the chat. The drivers were asked everything from what food they eat in May at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway - hot dogs and ice cream - and their thoughts on last week's announcement that IndyCar will return to Watkins Glen International in September.

    Helio Castroneves has no desire in being airborne and upside down again at Indianapolis. Neither does IndyCar, which is making changes in hopes of preventing those kinds of scary flips at high-speed tracks. ''For safety, that's what we're looking at,'' Castroneves said during testing Tuesday in Texas that included curved plates affixed to the bottom of cars to help prevent them from flying into the air after spins.

    Now an IndyCar race is pulling out of Boston before it even began. Organizers of the Grand Prix of Boston, which had been planned for Labor Day weekend this year and again each year through 2020, told the open wheel circuit Friday that they have scratched plans to bring a race to the city. Like the Olympics before it, the IndyCar race ran into public opposition and a wavering commitment from local leaders.
