All of the sale proceeds will go to benefit the Henry Ford Health System, one of Ford Motor Co.’s pet charities.

MotoGP qualifying at the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas saw Marc Marquez clinch pole with a new record lap of COTA (2:02.886), with Dani Pedrosa and Stefan Bradl joining him on the front row.

Marquez is quick wherever he rides but he appears to specifically enjoy the state-of-the-art Austin track where round two of the season is taking place and he secured his 11th premier class pole position by 0.289s from Repsol Honda teammate Pedrosa – having dominated all weekend so far.

The LeBron James name might have some magic in South Beach, but a little further up the east coast of Florida not quite as much, apparently.

Saturday at the 12th annual Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Collector Car Auction, a 2006 Bentley Arnage R luxury sedan that James once owned sold at auction for $65,000. That’s a far cry from its original base price of $212,990 when new. In fact, there was no celebrity premium at all for the maroon sedan.

Two-time MotoGP World Champion Jorge Lorenzo has taken on an unusual demeanor this weekend. Seeming beyond frustration, the Yamaha ace is carrying himself with a calm sense of resignation. Rival Marc Marquez isn’t a realistic target at the moment. Beating his teammate, Valentino Rossi, scratching his way to the podium, and securing maximum points given the circumstances — those are the goals Lorenzo can focus on this weekend at the Circuit of the Americas.
