The killing of Osama bin Laden quickly spawned a mini-industry of memorabilia -- on the streets of New York and online.

I was too busy killing Osama bin Laden."

SÃO PAULO, Brazil -- Takuma Sato came up 10 minutes short of potentially claiming his first IZOD IndyCar Series victory. Will Power, not usually one to pay attention to time, said "obrigado."
Power, the pole sitter and re-start leader of the rain-postponed Itaipava São Paulo Indy 300 presented by Nestle, came into the pits for a splash of fuel on Lap 36 (the race resumed on Lap 15). Sato, who overtook Power on a Lap 25 restart, gambled on stretching the 22 gallons of 100 percent fuel-grade ethanol following a Lap 17 stop that included switching to Firestone Firehawk rain tires.

But the yellow flag sought didn't materialize and the second-year driver of the No. 5 KV Racing Technology-Lotus car had to pit on Lap 48 of 55 in the timed race. Power inherited the point and went on to his second victory of the season and the championship points lead.
