NASCAR plans to sanction some 30 Busch Grand National Series races in 1986, beginning with the Goody's 300 at Daytona International Speedway. name symbolized "the best series in NASCAR," France continued. "We feel our friends at Winston deserve a name all their own. Winston's efforts have been most significant in the progress of NASCAR and NASCAR-sanctioned tracks over the past 15 years." Using the name to identify both the drivers and cars in NASCAR's top division "is simply formalizing what is basically already being done," he added. "We're just making it official." The late model sportsman series began in 1950 at NASCAR-sanctioned short tracks running weekly DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Officials of the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) have announced a name change for the Winston Cup Grand National and Busch Late Model Sportsman series. The world's leading motorsports series will be named the Winston Cup Series, and cars driven in those races will carry the name Winston Cup. The Grand National name, used in NASCAR's premier division since its inception 31 years ago, will be moved to the late model sportsman series and cars.

Dr. Barth Green, the Jackson Memorial Hospital neurologist responsible for care of injured Citadel linebacker Marc Buoniconti, said he began medical tests Tuesday after Buoniconti was flown from Johnson City, Tenn., to Miami. "He's exhausted," Green said. He said Buoniconti's only request Tuesday was for sleep. "He can communicate and is alert. I think he's just still shocked by the whole thing." Buoniconti, a 5-10, 185-pound linebacker, broke his neck Saturday when he apparently tackled an Eastern Tennessee State running back with his helment. He NBA Roundup was hospitalized at Johnson City Medical Center until his parents flew him to his hometown. "He suffered a dislocation between the third and fourth cervical vertebrae, and his spinal cord was crushed underneath. He has complete paralysis," Green said, adding that Buoniconti remained in critical condition in neurosurgical intensive care. He said he would know the complete extent of Buoniconti's injuries in six months. But first, he said, Buoniconti will undergo surgery to immobilize his spine by next week. The injured player has some feeling in his shoulders, Green said, giving Buoniconti a "very slim" chance of walking again. He said Buoniconti's injury is probably "a little more severe" than the one which has immobilized Stingley, a New England Patriots receiver, since 1978. 2. ii SMITH STUDIOS...
