NASCAR chairman Brian France is not sure if Kyle Busch will be granted a waiver to be part of the championship chase when he returns from injury, but said Thursday the sanctioning body would like to "accommodate" him.

Busch broke his right leg and left foot in a crash into a concrete wall in the Xfinity Series race at Daytona International Speedway the day before the season-opening Daytona 500.

He'll miss his ninth race this weekend at Richmond International Raceway, but has indicated he'll return to racing this season. The only way he'd be eligible to make the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship is if NASCAR grants him a waiver, and he wins a race that would qualify him for the 16-driver field. He'd also have to be inside the top 30 in points.

Daniel Murphy drove in four runs and the New York Mets matched a franchise record with their 11th straight victory Thursday, walking their way to a 6-3 win over the Atlanta Braves behind Bartolo Colon.

The streaking Mets, with the top record in the majors despite injuries to several critical players, finished 10-0 on their first homestand of the season after sweeping a trio of NL East rivals.

This is the fifth time the Mets have won 11 games in a row, and the first since 1990. Next stop, the Subway Series beginning Friday night at Yankee Stadium.

Murphy hit an early three-run double, and the 41-year-old Colon outpitched All-Star Julio Teheran in a matchup of unbeaten starters. New York took advantage of eight walks and tied the 1986 World Series champions for the best start in team history at 13-3.

Greg Jennings has played in 10 postseason games, or 10 more than most of his new teammates with the Miami Dolphins, and he's eager to help lead them to some success in January.

The two-time Pro Bowl receiver said Thursday he's comfortable in the leadership role. He signed an $8 million, two-year contract Wednesday with the Dolphins, and he'll fill a void among the wideouts by providing a veteran presence.

The team's other top receivers are Jarvis Landry, 22, and newcomer Kenny Stills, 23.

Jennings, a nine-year veteran, led the Minnesota Vikings last season with 59 catches for 742 yards and six touchdowns. He has 63 regular-season touchdown receptions, and scored twice to help the Green Bay Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2011 Super Bowl.

A hydrogen-fueled vehicle will lead the field at a NASCAR race for the first time when a 2016 Toyota Mirai serves as the official pace car Saturday night at Richmond.

The midsize sedan uses no gasoline and emits only water vapor. The electric vehicle is powered by hydrogen, refuels in about five minutes and travels up to 300 miles on one tank. It goes on sale in California later this year, with expansion planned.

Ed Laukes, vice president of marketing for Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A., said the manufacturer continues to use NASCAR as a vehicle to "showcase our innovation and environmental leadership."

The Toyota Camry Hybrid was the first hybrid vehicle to pace a full NASCAR race when it was used at Charlotte in 2009.
