The second V8 Supercars street race of 2014 kicks off our live and delayed coverage of Australia’s premier touring car series from Townsville, Queensland.Current title holder Jamie Whincup triumphed for the first time since March with two wins in Darwin, although it was current standings leader Mark Winterbottom who extended his advantage over Craig Lowndes courtesy of a battling race three victory. Meanwhile, Tekno Autosports’ Shane Van Gisbergen vaulted into sixth overall after another podium double.From one coast to another, we return to Daytona for delayed NASCAR Nationwide Series action with Regan Smith looking for something to celebrate this Independence Day.Following a repeat of last year’s disappointing mid-season run, Smith has now slipped to third in the standings, eight and four points behind Elliott Sadler and team-mate Chase Elliott respectively. Therefore, it would be the perfect time for the 30-year-old to repeat January’s victory in The Sunshine State in order to prove his title credentials.Florida’s hustle and bustle is swapped for Swedish countryside as live and delayed FIM Motocross World Championship coverage comes from Uddevalla.Reigning MXGP champion Tony Cairoli failed to register a top-three finish in either moto in Germany, allowing Clement Desalle to shrink the Italian’s lead to 25 points.
