INDIANAPOLIS -- Bump Day at Indianapolis followed the script. No surprises, no drama and no drivers getting bumped. On a day devoid of tension and rumours, all nine drivers who made attempts on the second and final day of Indianapolis 500 qualifications made it into the 33-car field, led by two young Americans -- Josef Newgarden and Graham Rahal -- who easily had the two fastest cars on the track. "I dont want to sound too confident, but I knew we would be fine," Newgarden said after delivering the days best qualifying run at 225.731 mph. "I think we would have been OK yesterday if we would have had another shot at it." The lone twist might have come if Mexicos Michel Jourdain Jr. actually made a qualifying attempt to get in the race. But after failing to top 220 mph in practice, the discouraged Jourdain had his car towed back to Gasoline Alley. That left it up to Newgarden, the Tennessee native, and Rahal, the son of a former 500 winner, to captivate the fans. Newgardens chance came after he failed to get a second shot to make it in Saturday when he sitting in qualifying line as the gun sounded at 6 p.m. He had to wait another 18 hours and this time, he left no doubt that he belonged. His qualifying speed from Sunday would have been good enough for 21st, the outside of Row 7, if it happened a day earlier. Instead, hell start 25th, the inside of Row 9. Rahal struggled all week -- and not just because he was using a Honda engine. The nine drivers in the first three rows of the three-car, 11-row grid are all powered by Chevrolets. The top Honda qualifier was Canadian Alex Tagliani, the 2011 Indy pole-sitter. Hell start 11th, the middle of Row 4, after going 227.386. Rahal, who drives for his father, Bobby, couldnt quite get his car right. But when it mattered Sunday, Rahal easily made it in with an average speed of 225.007 to claim the No. 26 starting spot -- the middle of Row 9. "Ive certainly had better (weeks), Ive certainly had some that were more challenging," Rahal said after locking up his sixth straight Indy start. "But there have been some mysteries behind a lot of our speed problems. I think the first few days people thought we were being extremely slow, but really we were just being really conservative." They were the lucky ones. Conor Daly, Buddy Lazier and Katherine Legge spent most of the afternoon trying to figure out how to get more speed -- if they had to re-qualify their cars. Daly had a tough week. After flying back from two races in Spain, the airline lost his HANS device, and after Thursdays crash A.J. Foyts crew had to rebuild Dalys car. They were working overtime again Saturday night after Dalys first qualifying attempted was derailed by puffs of smoke coming out of the rear end of the No. 41 car. But the 21-year-old rookie from suburban Indy returned to the 2.5-mile oval Sunday and put his car on the inside of Row 11 with an average of 223.582. "I have to thank the crew for all theyve done," Daly said. "I think they had the car apart at least 15 times after the crash and the problems we had (Saturday)," Daly said. "We got the engine back at about 8:30 last night and they worked late getting it back in." The first nine drivers all qualified on their first attempts, assuring race organizers of a full field. Nobody else even made an attempt. Jourdain Jr. tried everything. Nothing worked, making it the second straight bumpless Bump Day. His decision not to go out eased the tension for Legge, who was hired Saturday by Schmidt Peterson Motorsports and was sitting in line ready to re-qualify when Jourdains car was towed back to Gasoline Alley. The British driver will start on the outside of Row 11 after going 223.176. The days biggest scare came with about 30 minutes to go in practice when Team Penske driver Will Power tapped the wall with his right rear tire. The yellow flag came out briefly but Power was not injured. Fans still had plenty to root for. There was Newgarden, the hotshot 22-year-old who drives for Sarah Fisher, a local favourite; Rahal, the 24-year-old with the familiar last name; and Daly, the new kid on the block with deep ties to the speedway. They also wanted to see if Lazier, the 1996 race winner, would qualify for the first time since 2008. He didnt make it onto the track until late this week, struggled to find speed and got bumped Saturday. He came back Sunday and was the first driver to qualify, getting his fathers No. 91 car into the field with a run at 223.442. Hell start 32nd. The Laziers will be one of three father-son teams starting next weeks race -- joining the Rahals and Michael and Marco Andretti. Organizers believe that is a track record and its already causing quite a stir. "The Rahal name, its a nice perk around here," Graham Rahal said before adding fuel to his budding rivalry with the younger Andretti. "I certainly dont get the pressure that an Andretti does, by any means. How many father-son combos have won it? I think one, right? Andretti cant do that, so, that would be one more that wed get on them." Other notable facts about this years field include: --Scotlands Dario Franchitti and Brazils Helio Castroneves will try to become the first foreign-born four-time winners in Indy history. Three Americans -- A.J. Foyt, Al Unser and Rick Mears -- have won four times. This will be the first time since 1987 that two three-time winners will start the race. Castroneves qualified eighth. Franchitti will start 17th. --Britains Pippa Mann and Brazils Ana Beatriz, of Dale Coyne Racing, will be the first women teammates in Indy history. Mann will make her first start since being injured in the 2011 crash that killed Dan Wheldon and will start 30th. Beatriz will start 29th. Legge and Switzerlands Simona de Silvestro also qualified, giving the race four women starters. --Carlos Munoz, who qualified second Saturday, will be the first rookie to start on the front row since Juan Pablo Montoya in 2000. Both are from Colombia, and Munoz is leading the Firestone Indy Lights series in points. --Daly will be the youngest rookie to start the 500 since Rahal in 2008. Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic . John Tavares, Thomas Vanek and Kyle Okposo were also being counted on to slow down sizzling Rangers forward Rick Nash. That plan didnt go so well early. Cheap NBA Jerseys . Vettel was 0.168 seconds faster than Red Bull teammate Mark Webber around the Suzuka circuit. Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg was two tenths of a second off Vettel. "The car balance is decent, but I think we can still improve," Vettel said. http://www.wohlesalejerseyschina.cc/ . On Saturday night, the normally free throw-challenged centre did just that. Howard scored 18 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, including 13 of 19 free throws in a 2 1/2-minute stretch, and the Houston Rockets beat the Denver Nuggets 122-111.

ZAGREB, Croatia -- In a battle of big servers, Argentinas Juan Martin Del Potro beat Croatias Ivo Karlovic 6-4, 6-7 (6), 6-3, 7-5 on Friday to leave the two teams tied at 1-1 following the opening singles matches in the Davis Cup final.Del Potro, the 2009 U.S. Open champion who is capping a comeback after two injury-hit years, made the crucial break in the 11th game of the fourth set with a spectacular return of Karlovics serve.Del Potro broke the Croat in the opening game of the match and then held on to his serve to take the opening set. In the second, the Argentine appeared poised to clinch the tie-break after having a double set point, but Karlovic saved both and then sent the home crowd into frenzy as he forced two successive errors from Del Potro.Del Potro cruised through the third set to get back into control.After losing the second set, I was a bit frightened, Del Potro said. Ivo was playing real well, but I managed to regain composure.Karlovic, who at 37 became the oldest man to play singles in a Davis Cup final in nearly a century, served 35 aces while Del Potro had 15.After winning the second set, I was hoping to continue like this, but my level went down a bit and his level went higher, said Karlovic who returned to the team after a four-year absence.Doubles are played Saturday while reverse singles are scheduled Sunday, with team captains refusing to reveal which pairs they will use.Croatian team captain Zeljko Krajan said he was satisfied with the result after the opening singles.Overall today I have to say Im satisfied, Krajan said. It was hard to believe that we could have two wins today. We remain positive and optimistic.Argentina is the only nation in the Davis Cups 1116-year history to have reached four finals without winning the title.dddddddddddd Croatia is targeting its second title after beating Slovakia in the final in 2005.Croatia won the opening singles rubber after Marin Cilic struggled past Argentinas Federico Delbonis 6-3, 7-5, 3-6, 1-6, 6-2.Cilic, the 2014 U.S. Open champion, looked like cruising to the expected easy victory until Delbonis broke the Croat twice in the third set, which ended on a Cilic double fault.I struggled on my return, said Cilic, the highest-ranked player in the final at 6th position. His (high) toss on his serve is a bit specific and it gave me problems.I never said the match would be easy. After all, this is the final, Cilic said.Delbonis started the fourth set 3-0 with a double break, and Cilic conceded the set on serve by netting an easy smash.But after a bathroom beak, Cilic came back renewed and broke Delbonis to start the fifth set on the indoor hard court at Arena Zagreb. Cilic suddenly rediscovered his serving groove, and didnt give Delbonis a chance.I took a short break, talked to the coach, Cilic said. I was determined to start playing better.Cilic broke again in the seventh game, and served out after 3 1/2 hours, two hours longer than most expected.Cilic served 17 aces in the match watched by some 12,000 fans, including thousands of Argentinians who outshouted the home supporters. Among them was former Argentine soccer star Diego Maradona.His serve was the key, Delbonis said. In the first two sets, he was serving unbelievably.
