Wolla takes winning ways to Texas for $5,000 Fall Classic IMCA Modified checkers

(Photo by Stacy Kolar, Southern Sass Photography)Wolla takes winning ways to Texas for $5,000 Fall Classic IMCA Modified checkersWACO, Texas (Oct. 27) – Add Texas to the list of states Jason Wolla has scored first-time wins in this season.Wolla topped the IMCA Modified main event at the Heart O’ Texas Fall Classic, leading the last 15 of 25 circuits to earn the $5,000 top prize.“The thing I liked best about this was that any time you can go to a track you’ve never been to and win, it says a lot about your race program,” he said following his biggest IMCA career payday. “This season we went to Kansas, Montana and Texas and won for the first time in each state. We’ve had a lot of fun traveling.”Wolla had started fourth, was running second when a well-time caution came out and used multi­ple lines to work his way into the lead. He had a comfortable lead on the rest of the field when he caught up with lapped traffic late in the race.Outside pole starter Anthony Roth ended in second while 11th starting Tom Berry was third. IMCA na­tional rookie of the year Jeffrey Abbey and 15th starting Kelly Shryock completed the top five.Hard charger Cory Davis, winner of the $10,000 IMCA.TV Dirt Dominator race, advanced a dozen positions from his original starting spot to end in eighth.“Heart O’ Texas is a little bullring, a track with a lot of character,” said Wolla, who counted 14 victo­ries at eight different tracks, plus a qualifying feature and the Harris Auto Racing Race of Champions at Boone Speedway during the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s this season. “It’s real small and definitely not what we’re used to in North Dakota. I think it’s similar to Benton County Speedway (in Iowa) where we’ve raced and won before. We defi­nitely take notes at the places we race and that helps you later on.”Wolla was already on the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot.Nearly 300 cars packed the pits at HO’T for the 21st annual Fall Classic, completed despite wet weather leading up to the weekend. Gabe Tucker topped the $1,500 to win Smiley’s Racing Products Southern SportMod feature and Benji Kirkpatrick motored to the $1,500 first prize for IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars.Pole starter Tucker fell back to fourth in the Southern SportMod headliner as Jeff Sheppherd, Garrett Rawls and Eddie Grmela were faster early on.“They were really quick,” Tucker said. “It took me a little while to find my line. You had to get up on the wheel and be aggressive, which was hard to do and not run over your neighbor.”The 2018 national champion worked his way to the lead by midway, then inched away from the pack after the only caution waved on the 14th of 20 laps. Shepperd, Rawls and Brandon Geurin rounded out the top four.Kirkpatrick had started outside the front row and slipped back a couple spots, then made a nifty move inside and led the last 18 times around the track in the Stock Car feature.A multi-car tangle took out his closest challengers late in the contest. Dillon Smith started 14th and went from sixth to the runner-up position in the final two laps. Damon Hammond and Billy Wade were third and fourth, respectively.Feature ResultsModifieds – 1.

McAuley has no complaints over red

first_img Press Association “I wouldn’t say it was harsh, it’s within the rules of the game,” he said after a turgid 0-0 shutout. “I had a split-second to make the decision because their guy made a great pass in behind. “I saw he was getting there first so I just took everything out. I nearly walked and I was just waiting for the red card really. “I don’t know if it was good decision or a bad one or what, but it denied a goalscoring opportunity and we got the clean sheet so we move on.” While McAuley did not have any issue with the official’s performance, he was more critical of what he and his colleagues contributed on the night. It was a performance as bad as any in recent memory from Northern Ireland, devoid of attacking flair and frequently guilty of sloppy distribution. Tellingly, it was the visiting side who were most pleased to reach the end of each half unscathed against a side ranked 122nd in the world. “It didn’t spark,” admitted McAuley. Northern Ireland defender Gareth McAuley had no qualms about the decision to send him off in Wednesday’s dire goalless draw in Cyprus. McAuley was back after two matches out to bolster a defence missing Jonny Evans and Aaron Hughes, but saw his night end early when he was dismissed for a messy lunge at Dimitris Christofis. It was debatable whether the West Brom centre-back was guilty of denying a scoring opportunity – with the incident taking place close to the touchline 30 yards out – but the 34-year-old made no attempt to blame the referee. “We’ve all got personal standards and I don’t think enough of us reached them on this occasion. “You go away and analyse your own performance and Michael will do that for the group. Next time we get together we’ll speak about what we could have done better and there will be a lot of things on that list. “In the first half we tried to play in the wrong areas. We invited pressure from them and got nervous, making a lot of mistakes on the ball. “We need to learn from that because there are no mugs now in international football and we’ve got some tough games in the group where we can’t invite pressure or allow them to get on the front foot.” The game took place in a near deserted GSP Stadium, with the lure of free entry not enough to attract more than a smattering of local fans. At times the game felt like a glorified training session, but captain Steven Davis will not accept that as a reason for his side’s uninspired showing. “The lack of atmosphere wasn’t ideal but if you go looking for excuses you’re going to find them,” he told Press Association Sport. “The performance in the first half was very flat and it felt like we never got going. “It wasn’t a good performance from us and it’s one we’re disappointed in because we were a yard off the pace, especially in the first half. “You wouldn’t say there were really any positives to take but in the second half we had a bit of spirit about us and we dug in when we went down to 10 men.” The fixture will have dampened some of the enthusiasm that was built by a relatively kind Euro 2016 draw, with Davis adding: “It’s better a performance like that happens now than when the qualifiers start up again. “But there’s a lot of work to do and we need to do better.” last_img read more

Cricket News India vs West Indies 2nd T20I, Preview: Men in Blue look to continue winning run in Lucknow

first_imgNew Delhi: The opening T20I summed up at least part of the limited-overs portion of the Windies’ difficult tour of India: so close, yet so far. Team India’s first ever home T20I without MS Dhoni in the side (of a total of 32) didn’t entirely go to plan, with the home side crumbling to 45/4 chasing a target of under a run a ball.This Windies tour has become a great opportunity to take international cricket to parts of the country that rarely experience the elite product, and the Uttar Pradesh city of Lucknow gets its turn as it inaugurated a new stadium – the Bharat Ratna Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium.A West Indies side full of Caribbean Premier League (CPL) stars, as well as the return of veterans Kieron Pollard and Darren Bravo, couldn’t get the job done with the bat and yet still managed to turn their meagre 109 into a difficult chase for the hosts in Kolkata.With victory in the first T20I, India have now won nine of their last ten in the shortest format of the game, and seven in a row when chasing.Conversely, the Windies have won just two of their last 11 (No Result 1, Defeats 8), with one at home against Bangladesh and another against a piecemeal World XI team.The Lucknow locals will be kicking off Diwali celebrations a day early when the Windies come to town and we can expect this 50,000-seater stadium to be packed as the city hosts international cricket for the first time in 24 years.The Bharat Ratna Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium has hosted four first-class (Ranji and Duleep Trophies) matches, with the average runs per wicket at 27.7. It has a fairly large outfield, with straight boundaries of 65+ yards and square boundaries of 87+ yards.Players to watch: Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan (India) are just eight runs apart for the calendar year (445-437), both with strike rates in the mid-140s. It’s almost certain that at least one of them will have a big inning. Whereas Oshane Thomas (Windies) displayed the kind of express pace and variation in game 1 that earned him a league-best 18 wickets in the CPL. He has dismissed Dhawan three times this tour, conceding just ten runs from the Indian opener.Stat attack: India have won their last five T20Is at home.Milestone: Shikhar Dhawan needs just 27 more runs to reach 1,000 T20I runs. Whereas, Jasprit Bumrah is now in the top 30 in the world for lowest T20I economy rates with 6.75 (min. 500 balls, including retired/inactive players) For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

Barca Sack Valdes after Three Months In Charge

first_imgReportedly, the pair – who played together at the Nou Camp from 2002 until 2004 – have fallen out over a number of issues but the most significant is Valdes’ reluctance to adapt his formation to a rigid 4-4-2.Valdes was also unhappy with Kluivert and the club’s decision makers over being unable to use the Estadi Johan Cruyff as the Under-19s ground because the B team and women’s team play there.Since leaving the club as a player in 2014, Valdes’ career has taken on a rapid decline.After two failed years at Manchester United and a brief loan spell at Belgian side Standard Liege, the Spanish World Cup winner retired after playing for Middlesbrough three years ago.He was rumoured to be in line to take charge of the first team at Barca given Ernesto Valverde’s seemingly precarious position.But his stock with the club’s hierarchy has dropped immeasurably, with Kluivert in particular clashing with his former team-mate.Valdes’ Under 19s had won four of five league matches this season but lost both of their UEFA Youth League games – against Borussia Dortmund and Inter Milan.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Victor Valdes has sensationally been sacked as Barcelona Under-19s coach after a fall-out with former team-mate Patrick Kluivert.The 37-year-old, who made over 500 appearances for the club, stepped up to youth team coach in July – during the same period Kluivert took over as head of La Masia academy – but the relationship between the pair has soured to such an extent that Valdes has been booted out.A Barca statement read: ‘FC Barcelona have informed Víctor Valdés on Monday that he is no longer U19A coach and no longer employed by the Club. Franc Artiga, up till now coach of the U19B and part of the youth set up at La Masia since 2010, will take over as coach of the U19A.’last_img read more

Mike Leach to Mississippi State: Egg Bowl, ‘Air Raid’ among reasons to be hyped

first_imgTalk about taking the spotlight back. Leach, 58, makes the move after spending the last eight seasons at Washington State. Leach has a 139-90 record between his stint there and at Texas Tech from 2000-09, and he promises to bring a lot more attention to Starkville with the hire.Think of everything college fans are getting as a result:MORE: 2019 FBS coaching carousel’Air Raid’ is coming to the SECWe’ve been waiting for this since Leach flirted with Tennessee after the 2017 season: Leach’s “Air Raid” is coming to the SEC West. Washington State averaged 437.2 passing yards per game this season. The next-closest team was LSU, which averaged 397.2 passing yards per game in the greatest single-season passing performance in program history.Leach’s offense makes no apologies for passing all the time, and it will be interesting to see how SEC coaches handle getting into shootouts with Leach. Washington State lost 67-63 to UCLA and beat Oregon State 54-53 this season. Leach is not going to change his style in the new conference.Mike Leach at SEC Media DaysCoaches such as Steve Spurrier, Les Miles and Bret Bielema have been the toast of SEC Media Days in the past. Now, Leach will be one of the main attractions when the event moves back to Atlanta in 2020:Will he be asked to break down a mascot fight again?How about a coaches’ fight?No topic is off limits, and any question could spark another viral comment.Leach vs. Bama and LSUMississippi State last beat Alabama 17-12 in 2007, when Sylvester Croom was the coach. That is the only loss Saban had against the Bulldogs.Alabama has won the last 12 meetings in that series, and only two of those have been decided by seven points or fewer. Saban will get asked a lot of questions about Leach too, and the stark contrast in their demeanors makes for an interesting coaching matchup.Speaking of coaches who would win the Royal Rumble in the SEC: Leach would probably pick Ed Orgeron. Can we get those two mic’d up for their game? For what it’s worth, Mississippi State plays at Alabama on Oct. 17 and at LSU on Oct. 24. That will be a fun two-week stretch.MORE: Bowl season winners and losersStarkville will be fun againMississippi State was ranked No. 1 in the country for a four-week stretch in 2014 at the height of the Dak Prescott era. Alabama ended that on Nov. 15, 2014, with a 25-20 victory that led to the end of Dan Mullen era after the following season.The Bulldogs are 29-23 the last four seasons, and that includes a 14-12 record the last two seasons under Joe Moorhead — a hire that didn’t work more for the cultural fit than Xs and Os. Leach might not fit either, but it won’t be because he’s a “Yankee.” Leach has made it work in places such as Lubbock, and Pullman. He can do the same with more resources and a brighter spotlight at Mississippi State. This isn’t a blue-blood program, but Leach is in the biggest conference now. This hire might be the perfect sweet spot for Mississippi State and Leach.It’s going to be entertaining whether it works or not, and that’s kind of the feeling you get about what went down in Oxford, too.Egg Bowl is must-watch TVKiffin vs. Leach in the Egg Bowl on Thanksgiving. What did we do to deserve this? There is a one-up feel to what Mississippi State has done here; Ole Miss got a lot of attention for bringing in Kiffin, who had real-time failures at Oakland, Tennessee and USC before reviving his career under Saban at Alabama. Then there’s Leach, who was fired by Texas Tech before turning Washington State around.These two rival schools have met 112 times, but both schools were ranked in only six of those matchups. Next year’s game might go down as the most memorable because of the coaches who will be involved.It’s a matchup made in trending-on-Twitter heaven, and not because a player pretended to pee in the end zone. We can’t wait to see it. The 2019 Egg Bowl between Mississippi State and Ole Miss was decided after Elijah Moore was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct in the end zone after the potential game-tying touchdown.As wild as that was, it’s nothing compared to what we’re about to see in the state of Mississippi over the next few years. Mississippi State made the latest splash on the coaching carousel by hiring Mike Leach on Thursday. This comes after Ole Miss hired Lane Kiffin on Dec. 7.last_img read more

England Golf Trust launched to support young players

first_img A new charitable trust, supported by England Golf, was launched today and will provide grants and bursaries for boys and girls who need financial help to play the game. The England Golf Trust replaces and extends the scope of the former EWGA Trust for girls’ golf. It is being backed by ambassadors, BBC presenter Naga Munchetty and European Tour professional Robert Rock. Naga sent a message to today’s launch event at King’s Norton Golf Club, Worcestershire, saying: “Every time I play I see the effect that that game has on the development of young people’s personal skills, confidence and values – and this is why I am delighted to be associated with the England Golf Trust. “Young people are the lifeblood of our golf clubs so helping them to play golf in a fun environment should be encouraged by us all.” The Trust will help young people, aged under 21 or in full-time education, who are in financial need and who, without this support, would not be able to play golf. It will award grants and bursaries. Money which was given to the EWGA Trust to help girls has been ring fenced and the Angela Uzielli and Bellamy Bursaries will also be open only to girls. But all future money will be available for both boys and girls. Trust chairman Di Horsley said: “It became clear that to make a real difference to young people, we should have a trust supporting both boys and young men as well as girls and young women. “The England Golf Trust fills a gap by offering help to young people who genuinely can’t afford to play golf, but who love the sport. It will give them the opportunity to stay in the game, to develop life skills including confidence, self-esteem and integrity and to help make up the heart and soul of our golf clubs.” Among those attending the launch were representatives of the PGA and the Golf Foundation, together with four young women who have been helped by the former EWGA Trust and who spoke about the support they had received. They include: Lucy Buckley, from Birmingham, first started playing golf, aged 10, on the Wii – and loved it. Her grandma enrolled her for a series of golf lessons with Greg Lynch, the PGA professional at the local driving range. Greg recognised her potential straight away and encouraged her to join Warley Woods Golf Club, a local municipal nine-hole course, owned by a Community Trust. She’s made impressive progress, helped by a grant from the Trust. Stacey Mitchell was supported by a Bellamy Bursary when she was a self-funded post graduate student at the University of Lincoln. She said: “The grant enabled me to complete my Research Masters on gender inequality in golf which has helped me to achieve my dream role as a Regional Development Officer for The Golf Foundation, also taking a lead on girls’ development for the charity. I am extremely grateful for the support provided by the EWGA Trust.” How to help the Trust: There are two ways to help the Trust, firstly by identifying those young people who need financial support to stay in the game and secondly by encouraging individuals and golf clubs to make a donation, make a bequest or buy a golf diary.
