Weekly Racing Bonus doubled as result of record Stock Car entries at Super Nationals

first_imgStock Cars have been part of the Super Nationals program since 1988. The previous divisional car count record was 193, set in 2015.  Two hundred and twenty-nine Modifieds also begin qualifying today at Boone putting the total car count for the 37th annual Super Nationals squarely at 800. An event-record 202 Stock Cars will compete today (Wednesday) at Boone Speedway. IMCA President Brett Root announced before the start of this afternoon’s program that the Weekly Rac­ing Bonus paid to the winner of the Sept. 7 main event would be doubled to $100 for each of as many as 50 sanctioned starts made during the 2019 season.  “We have not lost sight of the core of IMCA racing, the weekly racer,” said Root. “There is no bet­ter way for us to support the drivers who support IMCA and no better event to do so than at Super Na­tionals.”  With as much as $5,000 in bonus money added to the guaranteed $1,000, that makes the Satur­day night checkers worth a potential $6,000. center_img A $100 bonus for each of as many as 50 starts is already in place for the Modifieds. “We’d love to see bonuses paid at the (50-race) cap every year in every division,” Root said. “There is no bigger or better stage to pay bonuses at than Super Nationals. We will back the rac­ers that back us.”  BOONE, Iowa – The record number of Stock Car entries could result in a record payout Saturday night at the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s. last_img read more

Wanyama completes Saints switch

first_img Wanyama’s move therefore dwarfs the £9.5million Spartak Moscow paid Celtic for Aiden McGeady three years ago and sees it become the largest fee ever paid in Scottish football, breaking Rangers’ long-standing record £12million outlay for Tore Andre Flo. Until recently it had looked like a move to the south coast had collapsed over personal terms, leading to suggestions of issues with his representatives. However, manager Mauricio Pochettino last week had not given up on the deal and Wanyama now becomes Saints’ second signing of the summer, following the £8.5million purchase of Lyon’s Dejan Lovren. “It feels great and I am happy to be here,” Wanyama told the club’s official website, www.saintsfc.co.uk. “Finally it has happened and we’ve come to the end [of negotiations], so I am delighted. There were other options, but Southampton is a club with ambitions so I chose to came here. “Southampton is a good club and it has good players, so I just want to train hard and work hard to be a part of the starting XI. We’ll see where that will take me. “I’m very grateful to be here and I’m looking forward to playing in the Premier League. “I’ve seen that the stadium is great and the dressing room is looking good, and I know some of the players. I hope they will help me and I think I will get along with the others, so it will be good. I am happy to be a part of Southampton’s squad. It means a lot because because it has been my dream to play in the Premier League and now I am here.” Victor Wanyama’s long-mooted move to Southampton has been completed, with the midfielder leaving Celtic for a Scottish record fee reported to be £12.5million. After overcoming an apparent impasse in discussions, the highly-rated 22-year-old has put pen to paper on a four-year deal at St Mary’s. Press Association Sport understands Southampton have broken their club transfer record to complete the signing, beating the £12million they spent on Bologna’s Gaston Ramirez last summer. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Tridents in playoffs as Walsh Jr and Gurney spark Zouks collapse

first_imgTHREE wickets in an over from Hayden Walsh Jr. and a superb spell from Harry Gurney turned the Barbados Tridents’ whole season around as they defended 141/6 to defeat St Lucia Zouks and grab the final 2019 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) playoff spot in a winner-takes-all clash at the Kensington Oval.The Tridents looked to be heading out of the competition when the Zouks got the target down to 31 runs from 28 balls with six wickets in hand, but Gurney then dismissed Hardus Viljoen before Walsh Jr’s three-wicket burst in the next over made it four wickets in eight balls and turned the match on its head.Their total looked slightly short at the halfway stage, but with the pressure of a win-or-bust situation, and a pitch offering some assistance to the bowlers, it always promised to be a nervous run-chase for the Zouks.Nevertheless, the Tridents’ hopes were already fading fast when the asking rate for the Zouks dropped below a run a ball within the Powerplay despite the loss of openers Andre Fletcher and Rahkeem Cornwall.Colin Ingram and Colin de Grandhomme kept the hammer down and got the Zouks so far ahead of the rate that even when they fell in successive overs, control of the chase was still firmly in the visitors’ hands.But first Gurney, and then most dramatically, Walsh Jr. changed that with dizzying speed. Viljoen had smashed Gurney for six the ball before his dismissal, making the English left-armer’s slower- ball bouncer an even bolder choice. But it did the job with Viljoen early on his shot and gloving through to Johnson Charles.That triggered a startling collapse, with the Zouks losing their last six wickets for six runs in barely three overs to tumble out of the tournament.Walsh Jr. had Chris Barnwell, Daren Sammy and Krishmar Santokie caught on the boundary in his third over, while Gurney returned to finish off a superb spell of bowling in which he used the helpful conditions expertly by having Kesrick Williams caught on the fence from another deceptive slower ball. He finished with 3/17 from four high-quality overs.It was Walsh Jr. who had the last word, bagging his fourth wicket of the night and tournament-leading 14th of the 2019 Hero CPL to finish off the game and send the Tridents into the playoffs.It was a fine effort from the Tridents after the heartbreak of the one-run defeat to St Kitts & Nevis Patriots 24 hours earlier that had turned this game into a must-win.Even on a pitch offering a bit for the bowlers, 141/6 still felt short of what the Tridents would have hoped for after getting over the loss of Alex Hales to Santokie’s slower ball for a duck to post 48/1 in the Powerplay. With Charles looking in imperious form and the classy Shakib Al Hasan another major headache for the Zouks, a total in excess of 160 looked on the cards.Shakib, though, fell just as he was starting to really get going, drilling a slog-sweep off Fawad Ahmed but picking out Ingram who held a stinging catch at deep midwicket.Charles fell three short of a half-century, having hit four fours and two sixes in a 36-ball stay. No other Trident was able to match his ball-striking.JP Duminy, a record breaker earlier in the week, made 13 from 18 here before edging the excellent Santokie behind, while there was to be no repeat of last night’s Raymon Reiferfireworks as he holed out for just 3.Ashley Nurse lifted the total beyond 140 with a six from the final ball of the innings, and thanks to Walsh Jr. and Gurney, that proved more than adequate.last_img read more

Fast reaction: 3 takeaways from Syracuse’s 13-5 win over Albany

first_imgNo. 20 Syracuse (1-1) created separation from No. 15 Albany (0-1) with a big second quarter and never looked back, winning 13-5 in the Carrier Dome. Following a 12-9 blunder against Colgate a week ago, the Orange responded with physical play and an improved offensive attack.Here are some takeaways from the game.No room for No. 1Coming into the game, the Orange’s biggest threat would be Tehoka Nanticoke. In a 15-3 drubbing by the Great Danes a year ago, Nanticoke found the net five times. SU played the same matchup as it did a year ago, with sturdy defender Tyson Bomberry flagging Nanticoke for much of the contest.But this season’s matchup provided a different outcome. Bomberry established a physical barrier on Nanticoke for much of the game, as the now-sophomore Nanticoke couldn’t find room following an early goal. He created space once more in the first quarter, but was credited with a no-goal after a penalty. And for the rest of the game, he struggled to gain an edge.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWhenever he got the ball, he immediately turned his back to the net and tried to muscle his way into a shot. Bomberry was there every time, though, and his frequent jabs at Nanticoke’s No. 1 pushed him away from the net as the Orange awaited weak side help. When it came, Nanticoke had nowhere to go and multiple times he fell to the ground and lost possession.Later in the game, Nanticoke found open space down the field and ran from the midfield line towards the goal. Brendan Curry caught up and gave him a shove from behind, and just as he tried to regain balance, Bomberry was there again. Nanticoke crashed to the ground and lost the ball. SU had executed its defensive strategy.Voigt dominatesWith the loss of Brendan Bomberry last season, the Orange were tasked to find the third member of their attack line through a mix of incoming freshman and players already on the roster. Among sophomore Owen Seebold, freshman Griffin Cook and a number of other options, senior Bradley Voigt rose above and won the job. Saturday, he spent his first game in the spotlight.The senior scored a career-high six goals to lead all scorers. The same shots that were stopped a week ago started to get through, and the Orange kept feeding their top scorer. Stephen Rehfuss said prior to the Orange’s loss to Colgate that Voigt excels in a similar role as Bomberry — waiting in front of the net for passes inside and doorstep shots. Late in the third quarter, Nate Solomon worked his way into the net and fired a shot off the chest of Albany goalkeeper Nate Siekierski. But the ball bounced out to Voigt. And just as he’d done all game, he finished.Get on the groundLast week, in a historic loss to Colgate, the Orange struggled from the start of the game to get and keep possession. It started with the faceoffs, and it continued with the Orange’s inability to grab ground balls. Faceoff specialist Danny Varello said last week the Orange practiced “a lot” of ground ball drills to work their way out of the possession struggles a week ago. The Orange responded against the Great Danes and scooped 44 ground balls to the Great Danes’ 24.Whenever the ball was knocked loose, the Orange extended their possession with another scoop. They dominated possession on their way to a total of 13 goals on 48 shots.

Guyana denies shipping “bad’ rice to Jamaica

first_imgGEORGETOWN, Guyana – Guyana says it has not shipped any rice to Jamaica under the “Cinderella” brand for the year after media reports in Kingston said 70 metric tons of White Cinderella rice, had been confiscated by Jamaican authorities.The reports said the rice, valued at valued at approximately J$4.6 million had been confiscated after officials from the Ministry of Industries, Agriculture and Fisheries carried out a series of inspections and found the product had signs of mold, clumping, discoloration and wetting.No rice shipped this yearBut the general manager of the Guyana Rice Development Board (GRDB), Nizam Hassa, who has expressed concern over the claims, said no rice has been shipped to Jamaica so far this year, by the miller who packages under the Cinderella brand.“I am very disturbed by these reports. We have since reached out to the Food Storage and Prevention of Infestation Division in the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries in Jamaica and are awaiting a response.“The situation is puzzling since the last shipment left Guyana on  December 15 and arrived in Jamaica on the December 19, 2018. Like any other shipment, the rice that was sent to Jamaica underwent a series of physical tests and was certified. The Board conducts such tests on paddy, rice and rice by- products prior to any shipment leaving Guyana,” Hassan said.GRDB export records also revealed that the supplier, to date, has not received any complaints from the buyer in Jamaica or any other of its markets and has been paid for all rice shipped.Export reports also indicate no one shipment from the supplier amounted to 70 tons.Hassan said that rice could develop mold if it becomes wet in storage.“It is very important that the rice be stored in a dry place. Mold and other bacteria can develop on the grain if the rice is exposed to moisture or becomes wet in storage,” Hassan said.The GRDB said it is urging all players within the industry to remain vigilant as the matter is being investigated.last_img read more

Lakers’ Byron Scott envisions Tarik Black to return next season

first_imgThe Lakers (21-58) picked up Smith through the waiver wire in late December. He enters Sunday’s game against the Dallas Mavericks (48-31) at Staples Center averaging 9.5 points on a 60 percent shooting clip and 6.9 rebounds in the past 17 games as a starter. That stretch includes Black posting four double-doubles and a career-high 18 points in Friday’s win against MinnesotaYet, Black pointed to his surprise cut from Houston as “exactly why it doesn’t give me added comfort.”“I would like to believe they would like to keep me. But going into the summer, you never know what will happen,” Black said. “Either way, I’ve been blessed with the opportunity.”Scott loves Black’s hustle, athleticism and positive attitude. Scott also called Black the team’s best defensive communicator. But with Black planning to play on the Lakers’ summer league squad in July, Scott focused on two areas he wants improvement.First, Scott believes the 6-foot-11, 257-pound Black uses only roughly half of his strength and speed that evoked comparisons to bruising Denver forward Kenneth Faried. Second, Scott envisioned Black playing mostly at power forward and would like him to develop a consistent mid-range jumper. For the past month, Black has worked with Lakers assistant coaches Mark Madsen and Larry Lewis both on his shooting technique and taking jump shots anywhere between 17 to 18 feet, both after practice and during pre-game warmups. Scott predicted Black “will be in this league for a long time” should that translate into games. “Our hope is that he implements that into his game next year so he will be more of an offensive threat,” Scott said. “If he makes that shot on a consistent basis, it makes him that much more dangerous.”Black sounded receptive to the feedback and credited the Lakers’ coaching staff for his development.“I want to be the best I can be,” Black said. “I want to be the greatest player I have the potential I can become.”Injury updateLakers guard Jeremy Lin missed Saturday’s practice because of soreness in his left knee, an injury that has kept him out for the past two games. Scott said he will assess Lin’s availability for Sunday’s game against Dallas after the morning shootaround. Lin completed some practice and dribbling drills. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img Amid all the unanswered questions surrounding how the Lakers assemble their roster this offseason, it appears they reached clarity on one matter.The Lakers seem set on retaining rookie forward/center Tarik Black, who has a non-guaranteed contract worth $850,000 next season.“We get another year to look at him,” Lakers coach Byron Scott said, “and see what he’s got and go from there.”Black spent the last year going undrafted and then playing in 25 games for the Houston Rockets before they cut him to sign free-agent Josh Smith after Detroit surprisingly waived him.last_img read more

Joey Votto intent on reversing rough start: ‘I’m not ready to concede’

first_imgVotta, 35, said he doesn’t think it’s his age that is hindering his performance, but that he just needs to make sure he adjusts his technique and works on keeping a positive attitude.”Well, I do feel like I have some technical adjustments to make,” he said. “Listen, I would be honest with you, I’m not ready to concede. It’s just not over. It’s just not over. I’m going to be an entertaining player, an entertaining hitter. It’s not gone. I’m sorry, it’s just not.”Votto will have a chance to start fresh with the Reds’ four-game trip to face the Padres (11-8). MORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZNIt was his first career pop-out to first base Wednesday against the Dodgers that solidified that Votto’s game is off, which prompted him to stick around the batting cages after the Reds’ 3-2 loss.For anyone curious, here is Joey Votto popping out to 1st base for the first time in his career, on his 6,828th plate appearance! pic.twitter.com/bo41PrC4zV— GSC (@GSC_Hear2Win) April 17, 2019″That’s a sign that my hitting technique is completely off,” Votto said, via The Athletic. “There’s a reason I just spent an hour hitting after a day game after a night game. It’s not good. It’s definitely not a good thing. I rarely do that. That’s why when I saw (the pop to first), I was like, ‘Ugh, I’ve got a lot of work to do.’ But I’m going to put in the work, I’m confident it’s going to come.”The game was a washout for Votto, who was 0-for-3 at the plate. Joey Votto has been lackluster for the Reds in the first few weeks of the season, but he isn’t ready to give up. There’s a lot of baseball left.The veteran first baseman is hitting .228 and has just one home run, a far cry from his track record.last_img read more
