The inconveniences of the daily routine in the nation's capital will be a selling point as Washington, D.C., makes a push to host the 2024 Olympics.
"We are the safest and most secure city in the world," said Bob Sweeney, president of DC 2024.
Sweeney announced Tuesday the formation of a nonprofit group aimed at making D.C. the first U.S. city to host the Summer Games since Atlanta in 1996, and the first to host an Olympics since the Winter Games were held in Salt Lake City in 2002.
Washington was one of 35 U.S. cities to receive a letter from the U.S. Olympic Committee to gauge interest. The USOC hasn't decided for certain that it wants to bid for the 2024 Games.
An MRI has confirmed that Martin Truex Jr. fractured his right wrist in a wreck during Saturday night's race at Bristol. Michael Waltrip Racing said Truex's wrist also is sprained. He's been fitted with a special cast that allows him to grip the steering wheel, and he is expected to finish the season after being cleared by NASCAR.
