DeYoung continues Great Lakes Nationals domination

first_imgCRYSTAL, Mich. (Sept. 14) – Front running drivers usually don’t like to see caution flags come out late in the race, especially when there’s big money on the line. That wasn’t the case Saturday at Crystal Motor Speedway, where Myron DeYoung drove to his third straight and fourth career Great Lakes Nationals title. The $3,000 IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified victory put him on the ballot for next year’s Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational.DeYoung started third in the 50 lapper and caught Brady Hollenbeck for the lead on the 12th circuit.He was still in front and looking for a way through the back of the pack when that fortuitous yellow flew with 10 to go.“When that caution came out it was a big sigh of relief for me,” DeYoung said. “The cars ahead were running two and three-wide and I was looking for a way through.” Sticking to his preferred higher line, DeYoung sped to the checkers ahead of A.J. Ward, Robert Hutson, Toby Steele and Paul Grosnickle. “I like races like this with more laps than our weekly shows,” DeYoung said following his ninth win of the season and IMCA career 92nd checkers. “It’s nice to have a lot of laps to get to the front if you need them.” Feature results – 1. Myron DeYoung; 2. A.J. Ward; 3. Robert Hutson; 4. Toby Steele; 5. Paul Grosnickle; 6. Joe Fowler; 7. Chad Wernette; 8. Rusty Zeigler; 9. Josh Borton; 10. Kenny Playter; 11. Ken Zeigler; 12.

Inside Conditions…Fish in a barrel

first_imgNew England Patriots wide receiver Chris Hogan (15) makes a touchdown reception against Pittsburgh Steelers safety Mike Mitchell (23) during the first half of the AFC championship NFL football game, Sunday, Jan. 22, 2017, in Foxborough, Mass. (AP Photo/Matt Slocum)Last Sunday evening/night, the New England Patriots operated a foundry of their own and “melted down” the Pittsburgh Steelers by the score of 36-17, winning the NFL, AFC Conference Championship, thereby advancing to Super Bowl LI to face the Atlanta Falcons who earlier in the day sent Aaron, “run the table” Rodgers and the rest of his crew from “cheese-head land” ‘packing’.The offense of the Steelers produced an anemic 54 yards rushing on 20 carries resulting in a 2.7 yard per rush average.  The longest run of the game for Pittsburgh was a whopping fifteen yarder.However, that is not the worst of it.  Two trips inside the five yard line and could not score a TD.  At one point Steelers tight end Jesse James caught a pass that was initially ruled a touchdown but that call was reviewed and overturned.  The Steelers offense went backwards after that.The Steelers defense had very little fight or bite, as a matter of fact the big nasty “D” seemed to be as toothless as a 94 year old who has misplaced his or her dentures. Pittsburgh’s defense looked as if they were fish in a barrel.  Patriots quarterback Tom Brady found more holes in the Steelers secondary than an old wool jacket after it has served as a “buffet” for moths. On both sides of the ball, the Steelers did not answer the call.With running back LeVeon Bell sitting out most of the game with a left groin injury, and wide receiver Antonio Brown being a non-factor, almost appearing to sit out the game allegedly with “injured stats” and as far as Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger goes…I won’t even go there.  Now let’s get to the low down nitty gritty.Before, way before the 6:45p.m kick off in Foxborough, in the wee hours of Sunday morning a purebred Patriot zealot a thoroughbred, U.S.D.A., knucklehead pulled the fire alarm at the hotel that was housing the Steelers.  According to espn.com news:  “Dennis Harrison of East Boston has been charged with disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace and pulling a false fire alarm.  Police said that Harrison pulled an alarm at the hotel and fled the scene but he was found by the state police, walking on hotel property.” Where in the hell was security? That was flat out bullcrap.  Remember “spygate and “deflategate?” Now we have “alarmgate.”  And Putin “ringate.”Aubrey BruceDo not confuse me with Donald Trump lover, Jason “Uncle Tom” Whitlock because unlike “Uncle Jason. I do not put anything past Patriots owner Robert Kraft or any member of his “den of cheaters.” Mr. Kraft and his chief henchman, Tom Brady loved and leaned heavily toward the now President of these United States, Donald Trump. Kraft may need Trump’s help retrieving some personal property according to an article posted by Jon Lockett on thesun.com/uk:”Donald Trump will reportedly be on a secret mission when he finally meets Vladimir Putin  –  to solve the case of the ‘missing’ Superbowl ring.Trump’s close pal and fellow billionaire Robert Kraft is said to be thinking of calling on the new President to help him get back the £16,000 ring Putin infamously ‘borrowed’ from him 12 years ago..As many American Football fans know, New England Patriots owner Kraft infamously “lost” his ring on a trip to Russia when he let Putin “borrow” it.  After it was revealed Trump is finally lined up to meet Putin, reports in the US claimed the new President might try and reunite Kraft with his treasured ring.  In 2005, Kraft was on a business trip to Russia when he showed his ring to Putin. The Premier apparently tried it on and then took it without giving it back. Kraft said in 2013: “I took out the ring and showed it to [Putin], and he put it on and he goes, ‘I can kill someone with this ring.’ “I put my hand out and he put it in his pocket, and three KGB guys got around him and walked out.”After Kraft told his version of events, Putin denied stealing the ring or having any memory of meeting Kraft, but he said he would have a replacement made for him.”  Hold it, stop the presses.  If the Kremlin will hack into the Democratic Party’s database to help Donald Trump “fix” an election, hacking into a database of a rival of one of Trumps supporters is “small potatoes.”Okay the Steelers played horrible defense but it seems convenient that Tom Brady seemed to know every “nook and cranny” of the Steelers defensive game plan. No quarterback is that great.  Don’t forget, the Rooney family supported both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.  The Patriots beat up on the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Will Vladmir Putin return Robert Kraft’s treasured Super Bowl ring? Will Putin view the Patriots advance to Super Bowl LI as “payment in full to Robert Kraft and the Patriots organization?”  Watch out Atlanta Falcons, are your computers and phones next? Don’t laugh boys’ and girls’ you migh just never know.

Connacht win away in Italy

first_imgBenetton Rugby 19 Connacht 22 A second-half revival from Connacht  saw us halt Benetton in their tracks and bring their five-game winning run to a close. With three tries apiece there was never much between the two sides but a yellow card for Tomasso Iannone with ten minutes to play proved the catalyst for Connacht’s win. Tito Tebaldi had given Benetton the lead late in the first half but Finlay Bealham hit back minutes after the break. Monty Ioane extended Benetton’s lead but Jarrad Butler responded almost immediately for Connacht, with Jack Carty then kicking the penalty after Iannone’s yellow and Eoin Griffin’s score meaning Marco Fuser’s effort with the clock in the red was only good enough for a bonus point. After early Connacht pressure the home side worked their way back into the game and, but for a fine tackle from Matt Healy in the 20th minute, Luca Sperandio would have gone in at the right corner for the opening score of the game. The remainder was a half characterised by turnovers and stoppages for injuries, punctuated by a blitzing run from Ioane into the Connacht half. And after several phases of play a Benetton lineout from the left set up a maul from which scrum-half Tebaldi darted over from five yards – suffering a knock to the leg in the process.Tebaldi limped off after Marty Banks kicked the conversion the half ended with the home side seven to the good. The second half began with Connacht pressure and a kick to the corner set up a lineout drive that saw Bealham bundle over for the score – Carty missing the conversion and the chance to level the scores with 35 minutes to play. With the half looking to be heading the same way as the first, Banks put in a cross-field kick from his own half, which Ioane collected to run 60 yards down the left touchline for a fine score – Banks missing the tough conversion on the hour mark. That score sparked Connacht into life and a smart offload from Cian Kelleher to Butler, for the flanker to drive home from just inside the Benetton 22 – Carty adding the extras to draw level and set up a tense final 15 minutes. And with ten minutes to play the decisive moment came with Iannone adjudged to have performed a tip tackle on Tom Farrell, seeing him spend the rest of the match in the bin. Carty knocked over a penalty and with six minutes to play a Healy break saw him offload to Caolin Blade, before the ball fell to Griffin for the centre to score the winning try – Carty making sure of the points with the conversion. Connacht face a trip to South Africa to take on the Cheetahs next Saturday night.print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Emaillast_img read more
