HOMESTEAD, Fla. - Matt Crafton just needed to avoid a disaster to clinch a second straight Truck Series championship.No big deal at all for the grizzled, 38-year-old veteran.Crafton became the first driver to win consecutive Truck championships when he clinched the title with a ninth-place finish Friday night at Homestead-Miami Speedway.To say I made history is definitely very, very cool, but its all about the guys that are behind me, Crafton said. Without them, Im just an average race car driver at best.All he had to do was finish 21st or better in the 134-lap race contested by a field mostly full of up-and-comers. There was never any doubt.Darrell Wallace Jr. earned his fourth win of the season.Wallace and truck owner/driver Kyle Busch went bumper-to-bumper for a celebratory spinout.That was on the fly, man, Busch said. I just stopped and waited. Ill have to see what it looked like on TV but from where I was sitting, it looked pretty cool.Busch finished fourth, and his Kyle Busch Motorsports team won the drivers championship.Kyle Larson was second, Timothy Peters third and Ryan Blaney fifth. Blaney was runner-up to Crafton in the final standings.Wallace held off Larson and Blaney down the stretch, tangled in a three-wide battle for a thrilling finish, giving Toyota its 18th win of the series in 22 Truck races.Wallace broke down in tears after the race, perhaps racing in the Truck Series for KBM for the final time.Im not sure what the future holds for me, but this is one hell of a way to go out, he said.Up next for Crafton is celebrating a second career championship.In his 15th full season in the series, Crafton won at Martinsville Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway and had 17 top-10 finishes. This was the first time Crafton won multiple races in a season. His average finish was seventh.Crafton, who drives for ThorSport Racing, has made four career Nationwide starts and has never started a Cup race.He had last years championship wrapped up as soon as the green flag dropped at Homestead. On Friday, Crafton, who made his series-high 337th straight start, was smooth on and off the gas over the final laps to make the championship a mere formality.His parents watched from the pits. His mother buried her face in her hands, hoping Crafton could hang on.I wanted to race so much harder tonight, Crafton said. I kept asking, I was just waiting for them to say that there were like 20 trucks running at that point and then I could go. When it was five (laps) to go and I had asked again how many trucks were still in, and there were 22 on the lead lap, I said I couldnt take any chances. I know I could have went further forward, but I said it is what it is.Ben Kennedy earned Truck Series rookie of the year honours.Kyle Busch added another owners title to go with the ones his team won in 2010 and 2013. KBM won 14 of 22 races.Its a great milestone for us, Busch said. Its been fun to capture all those moments. But none greater than this one.

Vincent Lamar Carter is no longer the lean, athletic dynamo who dazzled Raptors fans with eye-popping dunks that posterized even the leagues best defenders.MIAMI - The last time Dwyane Wade played in an NBA Finals game, he needed fluid drained from his left knee and eight hours of intense game-day therapy just to get into uniform. The Miami Heat guard later described it in a single word. "Hell," Wade said. It was also worth it, after he scored 23 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and hoisted his third Larry OBrien Trophy. Now, unlike last year, Wade is not dealing with any injuries heading into the Miamis finals rematch against the San Antonio Spurs. At 32 years old and with 866 NBA games already on his playing odometer, Wade still deals with plenty of aches and pains, good days and bad days, and basically has a standing appointment in the Heat training room. But compared to last seasons NBA Finals, his knees are good as new. "Hes a big-time, huge piece to our puzzle," four-time NBA MVP and Heat star LeBron James said. "To have him out there in the groove that hes in right now, its going to help us." The Heat are looking to win their third straight title and Wade is on the cusp of joining a list of all-time NBA greats. There are just seven players with four championships and at least one NBA Finals MVP award on their resumes: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, John Havlicek, Magic Johnson, Shaquille ONeal, Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan and the Spurs Tim Duncan. Wade could be the eighth person in that club. "We just want to continue to add to what were accomplishing," Wade said. Almost forgotten amid all the memories of Wade limping about during last years playoffs — he whacked what was his "good" knee at this time last year, the surgically repaired left one, in a collision with the Spurs Manu Ginobili during Game 6 of the finals — is he had big games when Miami needed him. Through his first 14 games of the 2013 playoffs, Wade was averaging 13.6 points. In the final eight games of that post-season run, starting with Game 7 against Indiana, he averaged 19.8 points. And in the last four games of the finals, he averaged 23.5 points against the Spurs to close the series. As his knees got worse, Wade seemed to gget better.dddddddddddd "He still found a way last year," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "He really did. He had some of his biggest games not only in the finals, but Game 7, we didnt think necessarily he was going to even play that game in the Eastern Conference finals." This year, the Heat tried to leave nothing to chance with Wades health. The so-called maintenance plan for Wade — limiting his minutes to save his knees — kicked in on the second night of the regular season. He wound up missing 28 games in all, mostly because of that rest-and-rehab scheme, to ensure that he would be good to go in the playoffs. The results cant be argued. Wade is averaging 18.7 points on 52 per cent shooting, Miami is 12-3 in the playoffs and when getting more than three days rest — like the Heat will have before Game 1 in San Antonio on Thursday night — the perennial All-Star has had games of 23, 14, 27 and 23 points on a combined 60 per cent shooting. "Dwyane is playing great," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said Tuesday. "He looks a lot more spry and ready to go then he did last year in the finals." Maybe the biggest payoff of the regular-season maintenance plan has been how Wade has closed games in this post-season. Wade is shooting 56 per cent in fourth quarters during the playoffs, the best clip of his career and the best percentage of any guard with more than 30 shots in the final period of post-season games this season. San Antonios Danny Green is second on that list, shooting just under 49 per cent. Wade doesnt like talking about his place in history. But he knows what rarefied air he would be entering with a fourth title run. "I think weve all put ourselves in great situations, and were just going to continue to try to enjoy this moment that were in because its an amazing moment," Wade said. "Its something that, for a lifetime, is going to fulfil us as athletes. Even when we cant play this game, were going to always be able to talk about this." And now, when talking about his health, Wade has another one-word answer: "Better."
