DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Erik Jones survived several gnarly wrecks, defending Cup Series champion Martin Truex Jr. on his bumper late, and the pressure of overtime at NASCAR’s most famous track. Maybe these so-called ”Young Guns” do know how to find victory lane. Jones won a crash-filled

For Kyle Busch, there’s no place where he can’t win

LONG POND, Pa. — Kyle Busch spent the week in New York City with his family, hitting the town and taking in the sights like any other tourist. His wife wore a Yankees cap as they caught a baseball game and the couple attended a theater production of ”Sleep No More.” The outings seemed

A Celtics-Sixers photo for the ages. And the photographer behind the shot.

It’s the photo the two Hall of Famers refuse to sign, a single image that captures a rivalry and still stirs fans a generation later. Among the barrooms near TD Garden, it hangs at The Fours and again at Sullivan’s Tap, where a 16-by-20-inch print resides squarely above the center of the bar,
