Sports log: Hurdles record at US championships


Brianna Rollins, 21, set an American record in the 100-meter hurdles at 12.26 seconds at Saturday’s US track championships in Des Moines, and 17-year-old Mary Cain finished second in the 1,500 meters to earn a spot at the world championships in Moscow in August. Rollins, who set a collegiate mark on her way to an NCAA crown for Clemson two weeks ago, ran the fastest time in 21 years, and only two hurdlers have ever run faster. Cain became the first high schooler to make the world team since Allyson Felix nearly a decade ago. Olympic champion Sanya Richards-Ross was slowed by a surgically repaired right big toe and didn’t qualify in the 400. Michelle Carter set an American record in the shot put (66 feet, 5 inches).

Allmendinger takes Nationwide race

AJ Allmendinger slid past Justin Allgaier with seven laps to go, then defended his lead through a late restart and a pair of nerve-testing green-white-checkered overtime finishes to win the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Road America in Elkhart, Wis. The win was a big step for Allmendinger, whose racing career took a wrong turn last year when he failed a NASCAR drug test, resulting in a suspension and the loss of his ride at Penske Racing. Allmendinger was reinstated after completing a NASCAR-affiliated recovery program, and now is getting a limited second chance with the Penske team . . . IndyCar points leader Helio Castroneves claimed the pole at Iowa Speedway, but he’ll start 11th after switching out his engine. Teammate Will Power, who was second in the final heat, will start first alongside James Hinchcliffe . . . Danish driver Allan Simonsen, 34, died following a crash at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in Paris, the first driver fatality at the event since 1997
