DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- After more than 2,400 miles and 23 1/2 hours of racing, the most prestigious North American sports car race came down to eight minutes and a final five-lap sprint. The first race of the unified United SportsCar Championship -- the NASCAR-owned and IMSA-sanctioned series born from the merger between American Le Mans and Grand-AM -- ended with a NASCAR flair. A late, full-course caution swallowed Joao Barbosas 13-seccond lead and gave Max Angelelli a last-ditch chance to win the Rolex 24 at Daytona. Barbosa never gave him a chance, pulling away on the restart with 8:23 to race Sunday to give Action Express Racing its second victory in four years. It gave Barbosa his second overall win and third in class. Co-driver Sebastien Bourdais won the Rolex for the first time, while Christian Fittipaldi won for the second time. Action Express second entry finished third -- and Chevrolets new Corvette swept the podium -- in an outstanding day for the Bob Johnson-owned organization. Action won its first Rolex in 2010, and Barbosa was part of that team. "This one wasnt unexpected," Johnson said. "This one we expected to win." It wasnt easy. Barbosa was black-flagged for avoidable contact while running second Sunday morning, a penalty he called "really harsh" at the time. But the team worked its way back into contention. The caution nearly unraveled the comeback. While Angelelli thought there was enough debris to warrant the caution, Barbosa disagreed. "Max, he said he saw a lot of debris that I really didnt see," Barbosa said. "I was really surprised by that caution, but its racing, and we just had to deal with it. But were here, we won the race." Wayne Taylor Racing finished second for the second consecutive year. Co-owner Wayne Taylor came out of retirement to drive for the first time since 2010, seeking a chance to share the seat with Angelelli and sons Ricky and Jordan. The 58-year-old Taylor drove one stint Saturday and then retreated to the pit stand to strategize for what he hoped would be a third -- and most memorable -- victory. "It was a great result, and to have my family and my kids drive with me and Max, its been an emotional roller-coaster," Wayne Taylor said. Action Express second car, with drivers Brian Frisselle, Burt Frisselle, John Martin and Fabien Giroix, was third. Ford was shut out in its debut of its new EcoBoost engine. The No. 01 car of Chip Ganassi Racing team wasnt able to defend its race win because of a series of problems that plagued the car starting very early in the race. Ganassis No. 02 entry was taken out of contention when it developed a flat rear tire while Scott Dixon was running second with roughly five hours remaining. The car went to the garage with 48 minutes remaining when the floor of the Ford Riley began to unravel and Dixon could see the pavement under his feet. Michael Shank Racings entry, the 2012 race winning team, was halted by a broken gearbox. CORE autosport finished a lap ahead of 8Star Motorsport to win the Prototype Challenge class. "Ive loved motorsports all my life," CORE owner and co-driver Jon Bennett said. "Its so great for it to love me back today." Porsche North America claimed the GT Le Mans class with its No. 911 RSR entry. The crowded GT Daytona class had the most thrilling -- and controversial -- finish of the race. The victory went to Flying Lizard Motorsports when IMSA officials penalized Level 5 Motorsports for avoidable contact on the last lap. Alessandro Pier Guidi in the Level 5 Ferrari traded the lead in the final laps with FLMs Markus Winkelhock, who was driving an Audi. With the Audi mounting a challenge heading into the kink portion of the course, the two cars battled side-by-side through the tight corner. The Audi ran off course, and although replays showed no contact between the two cars, the Ferrari was penalized for avoidable contact and Flying Lizard got the victory. Level 5s drivers and team personnel charged toward Victory Lane to argue their case. "If you look on the monitors, there was no contact," driver Townsend Bell said. "Im gutted for (Pier Guidi) and the team. I think the fans want an answer for how a call comes in like that. I feel like we deserve this one." But Flying Lizard driver Spencer Pumpelly was adamant teammate Winkelhock was in the right and IMSA made the correct call. "We dont drive people off the road. We dont win races by driving people off the road," Pumpelly said. "They tried to do that, and it didnt work, and its a great result for us." Simon Mignolet Jersey .

Mohamed Salah Liverpool Jersey .C. -- The Edmonton Oilers used a late-power-play goal to get a hard-fought road victory.MONTREAL -- If the fans had their wish, Caroline Wozniacki would be facing local favourite Eugenie Bouchard in the third round of the US$2.44 million womens Rogers Cup on Thursday. Instead, the former world No. 1 from Denmark will play Shelby Rogers, the American qualifier who put a quick end to Westmount, Que., native Bouchards homecoming tournament in the second round. Wozniacki breezed through a second match in a row with a 6-1, 6-2 win over Klara Koukalova on a side court on Wednesday. She has lost only five games in two matches so far at the hardcourt event. "Its my favourite surface," she said. "Ive been playing pretty well lately. "Montreal has always been a good place for me, winning here a few years ago (2010). Im feeling good and hopefully I can keep going." In the evening feature, world No. 1 Serena Williams dispatched Samantha Stosur 6-0, 6-2 in a match interrupted 28 minutes by a sprinkle of rain. Williams, the defending champion who is coming off a victory Sunday at Stanford, then surprised the centre court crowd by doing a courtside interview in French. Wozniacki is coming off her first win of the season at the Istanbul Cup, where she dropped only two games while beating Roberta Vinci in the final. Now ranked 13th, Wozniacki will face the world No. 113 in Rogers, who played the spoiler as Bouchard battled rust and her nerves on Tuesday night. "I know how she looks like, but I dont know much about her game," said Wozniacki. "I will definitely have my team tell me how she plays." It promises to be a quieter match than if it was Bouchard, who had the packed centre court solidly behind her, as well as her Genie Army fan group in from Australia. "I dont really care, to be honest," added Wozniacki. "Obviously, Rogers must have played really well to beat Genie. "With the whole crowd, as well, for Genie, you know it wasnt easy. But for me, its a new match. It doesnt matter whos on the other side." If she keeps winning, it may draw attention back to her tennis game and away from her famous split in May with golfer Rory McIlroy. Both players seem to be doing better since then, with McIlroy following his British Open title with a win at last weeks Bridgestone Invitational. "Ive moved on. I hope everyone else has moved on, too," said Wozniacki, who will be running the New York Marathon in November, when the wedding was to have been.dddddddddddd Williams needed only 59 minutes of playing time to improve her career record against Stosur to 7-3. Next she will face 15th-seeded Lucie Safarova, against whom she is 6-0. Safarova beat Magdalena Rybarikova 6-4, 6-2. "She is an interesting player," Williams said of Safarova. "Shes extremely tricky. "Weve had some tough matches. I know weve gone to three sets on occasions. Its definitely not an easy match for me." Williams has won the Rogers Cup three times when it is held on alternate years in Toronto, including last year, but she has not played in Montreal since she retired from the final with an injury in 2000. Odd, since shed be a natural favourite for the mostly French-speaking crowd. "Im really happy to be a part of the tournament this year. Its just really cool," she said. "Ive actually been studying French for most of my life, so yeah, I should be able to speak even better, to be honest. "I love it in Canada because I understand everything. Its a lot easier for me to speak. The accent is much easier for me to understand." In a centre court match, fourth-seeded Maria Sharapova survived a rough first set to down world No. 27 Garbine Muguruza of Venezuela 4-6, 6-3, 6-1. "I was happy that I was able to turn it around," said Sharapova. "I didnt feel good. "I made a lot of errors in the first set. When youre able to finish stronger than your start, thats always a positive because you give yourself an opportunity to keep playing in the tournament." Her next opponent is 14th seeded Carla Suarez Navarro, who got past lucky loser Karolina Pliskova 6-1, 3-6, 6-3. British qualifier Heather Watson upset 10th-seeded Dominika Cibulkova 6-2, 6-7 (3), 7-6 (5). Watson let a 5-2 lead slip away in the third set before rallying for the victory. The 22-year-old will face eighth-seeded Victoria Azarenka in the third round on Thursday. Watson won two qualifying matches on the weekend before downing Tereza Smitkova in the first round. Cibulkova was coming off a first-round win over 17-year-old Francoise Abanda of Montreal. Angelique Kerber, the sixth seed, ousted Caroline Garcia 6-4, 6-1. The two faced one another in Madrid in May, with Garcia winning when Kerber retired in the second set with a back injury. In doubles, Muguruza and Saurez Navarro beat Abanda and Stephanie Dubois of Laval, Que., 6-3, 6-4.
