It was more impactful at Atlanta than what I think it will be here. But I still think it will be helpful.” Saturday’s struggles with the new tire likely were related to a cooler day — with temperatures in the high 50s and low 60s which ranged from 20 to 30 degrees cooler than the past three times the tire had been on track (both Thursday and Friday and in a July session). MCMURRAY: Driver moves into mentoring role Chillier conditions like Saturday’s often can trigger a spate of engine failures during a race (there were three when the April 2012 event was run on an unseasonably cold day) while also affecting the suspensions on the Generation 6. Busch and Kenseth were joined in Saturday incidents by Kurt Busch, who went to a backup car after a wreck in the first session, and Aric Almirola, who spun in the final practice. “The balance changes quite a bit, and this right-side tire is very challenging,” Kenseth said. “There’s not any grip to it. It’s easy for it to get away from you. They’re pretty on edge. You think you’ve got good grip, and then all of a sudden when it’s gone, it’s just gone. You can’t catch it.” But Kenseth said there still was “absolutely nothing wrong with our car” after an eventful practice in which his Camry was bottoming out before the spin. “It was the weirdest thing,” he said. “It was sparking down the backstretch. There must have been a lug nut on pit road somewhere, and it got stuck in our splitter. That’s where all the sparks came from until it spit that lugnut out.” Could such bizarre circumstances crop up again Sunday and add some spice to a mostly listless Chase so far? Though many are hoping, none of the contenders is counting on it.
Friday after it conducted its own water-quality test. The test results were approved by county health officials, Hernandez said. Workers in Hollywood worked through all of Thursday evening and finished repairs to the water main by Friday afternoon. Crews were focused on repairing the road late Friday. To get to the main, workers had to dig a hole that took out most of the intersection. Resident James Dempsy, whose house is next to the intersection, recalled learning about the main break during the middle of his shower, when the water pressure suddenly dropped dramatically. When he went outside, he saw a river filled with trash and debris rolling along 28th Avenue. “I saw all this water gushing down the street. I was like, ‘Wow, what’s going on?'” he said. Dempsy and many of his neighbors had no water until the early hours of Friday, causing them to use bottled water to brush their teeth. One house didn’t have any water until late Friday afternoon. Public school officials also were busy delivering water to area schools, while merchants raced to keep up with the bottled-water demand.

George Clooney and Sandra Bullock have been friends for more than 20 years and seem to have an undeniable chemistry both on and off the screen. But the “Gravity” co-stars are adamant that there is no love connection between them. At the premiere of their new flick, the 52-year-old actor told E! News the real reason he and Sandra never hooked up in the past, saying, “She was dating one of my best friends. There’s a certain bro code, you know what I mean? I’ve known her a long, long time.” And back in September, Sandra addressed the dating rumors on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.” When the host asked why the duo never dated she replied, “I think it’s probably because we’re a little too similar, in all the disturbing ways.” But they aren’t the only stars who have adamantly denied the love rumors. Gossip has swirled for decades that country music icons Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers have been romantically involved. But they set the record straight during a recent interview with “Good Morning America.” “We never consummated anything,” Rogers said, laughing. “We just teased each other all [about] it.” Parton added, “We never even flirted, not in that way.” And fans of “Full House” have long wished for Lori Loughlin and John Stamos to pair up, but Lori told Huff Post Live back in March, “I was actually married at the time that I was doing the show and then I got divorced. And then when I got divorced, he met Rebecca [Romijn] and he got married. So our timing was just really off. I don’t think it ever entered our minds that it would be something more.” Check out the vid to see which pop princess denied romance rumors with a hunky Hollywood A-lister, and be sure to tune in to “omg!
