Kurt Busch, sponsor staying with Ganassi
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Kurt Busch and sponsor Monster Energy have agreed to a multiyear extension to stay with Chip Ganassi Racing.
The deal was announced Saturday at Texas Motor Speedway, after track president Eddie Gossage had presented the 41-year-old Busch a rocking chair that generally indicates retirement. That was part of a setup before the 41-year-old Busch and team owner Chip Ganassi revealed the extension to keep driving the No. 1 Chevrolet.
Busch and his sponsor had moved to Ganassi on a one-year deal last winter.
This was the 20th Cup season for Busch, the 2004 champion and a winner of 31 races. He won this season at Kentucky, the sixth year in a row that he got to victory lane.

Frostburg men lose to No. 11 Charleston
FROSTBURG — On a brisk Saturday night, Frostburg State celebrated senior night and No. 11 Charleston put a damper on the festivities with a 6-1 victory.
The first half was a wild one as Charleston tallied the first two goals in the 13th and 20th minutes. Jesus Cabanas would score after a feed from Gabriel Rodriguez and Rodriguez tacked on a penalty kick goal.
One minute and 20 seconds later, senior Blake Geatz headed in a loose ball from the goalie box to get on the board. Geatz, who was one of three seniors honored during pregame, picked up his second goal of the season.
The Golden Eagles responded shortly thereafter, when Cabanas beat out sophomore goalkeeper Joel Assal and lassoed a kick into the right side of the net.
In the second half, Cabanas completed the hat trick, increasing Charleston’s lead to 4-1. After both teams put in substitutions for the majority of the half, two more Charleston goals found the back of the net in the final 1:30 of play.
Charleston outshot Frostburg State 16-7, including a 6-4 advantage in the first half despite the Bobcats taking the final three shots. Junior Robert Riffle and first-year Tamino Brown led FSU with a pair of shots. The Golden Eagles also had a 10-3 advantage in shots on goal.
Sophomore Joel Assal played all 90 minutes in net and made three saves.
Frostburg State concludes the season at West Virginia Wesleyan on Wednesday beginning at 7 p.m.
