BOWLING GREEN — Undefeated and top-ranked Crestview took an early lead on local rival Wayne Trace in Friday night’s Division IV regional final played at Bowling Green State University.

Jumping out to a 16-2 start, Crestview didn’t allow a Wayne Trace field goal until 6:40 to play in the second quarter. What could have turned into a blowout, however, became a classic battle between two familiar opponents, with the Knights pulling away late for a 44-34 win.

BRISTOL, Tenn. — Denny Hamlin ended two weeks of Team Penske dominance by winning the pole at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Hamlin set a track record Friday with a lap at 129.991 mph to earn the top starting spot. It broke the mark of 129.535 set by Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Kyle Busch a year ago and ensured that neither Brad Keselowski or Joey Logano won the pole for the first time since NASCAR’s new knockout qualifying debuted three weeks ago.

CINCINNATI — Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis signed a 1-year contract extension Friday, keeping him on the job through the 2015 season.

Lewis has led the Bengals to three straight playoff berths, a first for the franchise that began play in 1968. But the Bengals are 0-5 in the playoffs under Lewis.

His 90 career victories are the most in Bengals history by 26 over Sam Wyche (64). His record is 90-85-1 in the regular season. Lewis’ 11 seasons are the most for a Bengals head coach.
