LONG POND, Pa.—Denny Hamlin chalked up his record seventh win at Pocono Raceway—“Eight, right?” he quipped—to nothing more than coming out ahead after a hard, respectful duel with Kyle Larson over the furious final laps. Hamlin’s take: His Toyota held firm in the middle lane while Larson’s Chevrolet ran out of room on the outside when it got choked in a tight aerodynamic situation and sailed into the wall. Larson’s view: His so-called good buddy Hamlin ran him up the track, smashed him into the wall and derailed his chance at the win. Larson was furious. Hamlin shrugged it off. After all, he h ..read more

SEOUL, South Korea—North Korea fired two short-range ballistic missiles into its eastern sea, South Korea’s military said Tuesday, adding to a recent streak in weapons testing that is apparently in protest of the U.S. sending major naval assets to South Korea in a show of force.

It said both missiles traveled around 400 kilometers (248 miles) before landing in waters off the Korean Peninsula’s eastern coast. Its ..read more

The first thing “H.N.” did when he got up on a July Sunday morning was say hi to his dog, Biscuit, and then start reading “Treasure Island,” which after just the first chapter may overtake “Robinson Crusoe” as his all-time favorite book—but that needs to wait until he finishes the book. Later, he played Monopoly with a friend, practiced baseball (which he plays for his school team), and told us about his favorite board game, Kids Against Maturity. His room looks like a typical young boy’s, with board games, Nerf guns, baseball equipment, and toy vehicles. In the living room is a mini ..read more

British soldiers based in Australia could be part of the next step to bringing the two military forces closer together. UK Armed Forces Minister James Heappey said stationing British troops in Darwin, where U.S. marines have a presence, was “not impossible” as his nation looked to expand its influence in the Pacific. “It comes up quite regularly in conversation about what the Aussies and the U.S. are doing up there and whether we should be there too,” he said. “But it’s not something we’ve got an active plan for, and it’s certainly not something we’ve spoken to the Australian government about ..read more
