DARLINGTON, S.C. -- NASCAR owner Gene Haas said Friday he has been granted a license from Formula Ones governing body to start a U.S.-based entry in the global series, perhaps as early as next season. Haas received documents from the FIA on Thursday and the organization confirmed the application had been approved. "If he wants, he can join next season, its up to him," FIA spokesman Matteo Bonciani said. The last attempt for an American Formula One team came in 2010, but the entry lacked funding and development to join. Money is not expected to be a problem for the deep-pocketed Haas, owner of CNC machine manufacturer Haas Automation and the Windshear wind tunnel in North Carolina. Haas co-owns a NASCAR team with Tony Stewart that fields drivers Stewart, Kevin Harvick, Danica Patrick and new addition Kurt Busch. Haas pays for Busch himself. "Obviously, were extremely pleased to have been granted a Formula One license by the FIA. Its an exciting time for me, Haas Automation and anyone who wanted to see an American team return to Formula One," Haas said in a statement. Formula One chief Bernie Ecclestone said at last weekends Bahrain Gran Prix that the U.S.-backed team led by Haas would likely join the series next season. Now its official. "Now, the really hard work begins. Its a challenge we embrace as we work to put cars on the grid," Haas said. Haas team would be Americas first F1 entrant since Penske Racing competed from a base in England from 1974 to 1978. And it would be the first U.S.-based F1 team since Mario Andretti raced for Parnelli Jones Racing from 1974-76. The last American team competing in F1 was run by Carl Haas (no relation to Gene) and Teddy Mayer in 1985-86. At the IndyCar race in Long Beach, Calif., drivers wondered if a U.S.-based team would actually come to fruition. "Theres not a great track record so far, and those are the data points we have to go off of," said James Hinchcliffe. But his teammate believed Haas might be able to pull it off. "With Gene Haas buying the team, Id say thats the likeliest chance of it finally happening," said Ryan Hunter-Reay. Asked if thered be any interest in the paddock for a shot to drive for Haas in Formula One, the normally reserved Carlos Munoz immediately perked up. "I would," the Colombian said. "Id love to do it." Haas founded his NASCAR team based in Kannapolis, N.C., in 2002. Seven years later, he brought Stewart aboard in a co-owner role to bring legitimacy to the team and help get the cars to Victory Lane. Stewart has delivered. Haas also operates the Windshear, one of the worlds most sophisticated wind tunnels for the testing of car aerodynamics, which would aid any new F1 entry. He said Haas Automation, one of the largest machine tool builders in the world, currently does $1 billion in annual sales, and he believes entering Formula One could help him double that number. "Its not that were trying to individually sell machines. Were trying to make people aware of Haas Automation as a company," he said. He added: "Were just trying to bring our awareness up and Formula One is even more important because half our sales are outside the country. So we think Formula One would be a really great way of bringing us awareness and increasing our sales." His team would be based in North Carolina, next to the existing NASCAR shop. "We want to be an American team. We think that has the most sizzle to it," Haas said in January. Drew Pomeranz Jersey .

Although Spain could still advance out of the group stage, the game may have signalled the end of the run by a generation of Spanish stars whose quick passing, "tiki-taka" style delighted the world and helped them win the last three major tournaments.Salt Lake City, UT (SportsNetwork.com) - Chris Paul and Jamal Crawford each scored 21 points as the Los Angeles Clippers defeated the Utah Jazz 94-89 on Wednesday night. Blake Griffin had 17 points and seven rebounds for the Clippers, who have won 13 straight over the Jazz. Los Angeles, which opened up an eight-game road trip, has won six straight overall.

Joe Ingles and Trey Burke then both missed 3-pointers in the final seconds as the Clippers held on. We had some clean looks.

Utah used a 12-2 run early in the first to turn a six-point deficit into a 14-10 game. The Jazz led 26-24 after 12 minutes. The game remained close in the second with neither team leading by more than six.
