Tim Thomas may be returning to the court, and with a familiar team. Thomas' agent, Bob Myers, told ESPNDallas.com that he and the club are working toward a new deal that would reunite Thomas with the Mavericks. Dallas signed Thomas last season, but he later requested and received a lengthy leave of absence to care for his wife's serious health issues. The 33-year-old appeared in just 18 games before leaving the team, averaging 7.5 points in 15.8 minutes.

Not long after the green flag fell, chaos began at the Brickyard 400. Kyle Busch and Sam Hornish Jr. spun on the race's first lap,collecting a group of seven cars. The melee tore up some of the infield grass, creating debris that apparently got caught in the grills of several other cars, causing them to overheat. Contenders such as Denny Hamlin, Carl Edwards and Brad Keselowski had to make costly green-flag pit stops. Also before lap 20, Ryan Newman had a flat tire and Max Papis' car briefly caught on fire. Catch the race on ESPN and/or ESPN RaceCast.
