Kenseth, Logano move on
While it wasn't quite moving day, both Matt Kenseth and Joey Logano officially got new NASCAR homes on Tuesday.
It's been known for months Kenseth was headed to Joe Gibbs Racing, but he wasn't able to talk about it until Tuesday, when he made an appearance at the organization's team headquarters with new teammates Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin.
Kenseth will drive the No. 20 Toyota beginning next season, which will ontinue to be sponsored by Home Depot and Dollar General.
Only hours later, Penske Racing formally announced the hiring of the current driver of JGR's No. 20, Logano - a move that was first reported by the Observer and ThatsRacin.com on Wednesday.
Logano, 22, will drive the No. 22 Ford next season for Penske as a teammate to Brad Keselowski. Sam Hornish Jr. has been driving the car temporarily this season after its former driver, A.J. Allmendiunger, was indefinitely suspended from NASCAR for failing a random drug test.
"I am very excited to join Penske Racing and begin the next phase of my career," Logano said in a statement.
U.S. team moves to final
The United States beat Nigeria, 2-0, on Tuesday and will play defending champion Germany for the women's under-20 World Cup soccer title.
Morgan Brian scored in the first half and Kealia Ohai added another goal in the second to send the Americans to the final for the third time. The U.S. won in 2002 and 2008.
"It was a difficult match physically," U.S. coach Steve Swanson said. "Nigeria gave us all we could handle and a little more. Getting that first goal was key for us."
Germany, trying to become the first team to win consecutive titles, beat host Japan, 3-0. Japan will face Nigeria for third place Saturday before the U.S. meets Germany. The Germans also won the title in 2004.
Kelly will sign new book
Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly will sign copies of his new book, "The Playbook for Dads," at the McKinley Mall on Tuesday. The event starts at 6 p.m. in the Barnes and Noble store.
Kelly uses experiences from his football career to illustrate 10 lessons for fathers: thankfulness, confidence, respect, preparation, passion, perseverance, character, responsibility, teamwork and spiritual life.
Each chapter begins with a letter to his son, Hunter, who passed away at age 8 from Krabbe disease, and ends with a letter to his two daughters, Cam and Erin.
Kelly retired as a player in 1996 after leading the Buffalo Bills to eight postseason appearances, including four straight Super Bowls.
