(Photo by Mike Spieker)By Mike SpiekerADA, Minn. (Aug. 18) – The inaugural Sanders Modified Tour commenced Thursday night at Nor­man County Raceway with a record 46 Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modifieds on hand. While the Sanders Modified Tour is still in its onset, the one-night Sanders Modified Challenge, which now apart of the four-night tour, has been the premier Modified event on the NCR schedule for the previous four years.Before Thursday night, there had been no repeat winner of the Sanders Modified Challenge but all that changed when Austin Arneson drove from third to the lead and picked up the win to back up his 2014 Sanders Mod Challenge title.“This is huge. To have a race this big close to home in front of a lot of guys that watched me grow up racing here and in front of family and friends, it’s a really big deal,” said Arneson, who earned $2,000 for the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot qualifying victory. “I’m really excited to have won it a second time.”After getting by his older brother Cale for second, Arneson used the high side to take the lead away from pole sitter Ryan Mikkelson on lap five.“It just took patience right away. I knew the track was going to be racy all over,” said Arneson. “The bottom was fast. The top was fast, but I prefer the top. I just had to hit my marks and we started picking up momentum and I got out front and stayed out front.”Arneson went on to the lead the final 20 laps of the feature but that run up front didn’t come with­out its challenges.A few mid- to late-race cautions put IMCA newcomer Tyler Peterson right on Arneson’s rear bumper. Peterson threatened to take the point following each restart but over the course of a hand­ful of laps, Arneson would prevail and regain his sizable lead.Arneson took the checkers by more than three seconds. Peterson came home as the runner-up, while first “B” winner Hunter Marriot wheeled his way through the field to round out the podium. Josh Eberhardt came home fourth with Justin Jones in fifth.By winning both his heat and the feature, Arneson picked up the $250 clean sweep bonus. Johnny Corell took home the $100 Out-Pace Hard Charger award, while Tommy Lee was the $100 Performance Auto Tough Luck award recipient.On Friday night the tour heads 45 miles south to Red River Valley Speedway in West Fargo for another $2,000-to-win event.Feature results – 1. Austin Arneson; 2. Tyler Peterson; 3. Hunter Marriot; 4. Josh Eberhardt; 5. Justin Jones; 6. John Corell; 7. Michael Greseth; 8. Michael Johnson; 9. Ryan Mikkelson; 10. Dev Malmlov 11.

Tiger Woods is taking a week off from his 2019 tournament schedule, opting to skip the Valspar Championship in favor of next week’s WGC-Match Play, and it’s a lighter field overall as the PGA Tour continues its Florida swing at the Innisbrook Resort.Woods, who finished tied for 30th at The Players Championship, nearly won the Valspar in 2018, providing the first glimpse of success early in his comeback tour while losing by one stroke after missing birdie on the 72nd hole. He’ll play one more tune-up tournament before The Masters in April.last_img read more

NBA Draft 2019: What will the Lakers do with the No. 4 pick?

first_imgThe Lakers are hoping to have a busy summer.Los Angeles, which enters the offseason after a disappointing 2018-19, will have max cap space as it pursues a second star to pair with LeBron James. The Lakers have already been linked to Kemba Walker and Kyrie Irving and they will also reportedly once again attempt to trade for Pelicans star Anthony Davis. Four Lakers options with the 2019 NBA Draft’s No. 4 pick:Darius Garland, guard, VanderbiltGarland has the highest upside of any player who will be available at No. 4 — assuming Zion Williamson, Ja Morant and RJ Barrett are off the board. The 6-2 guard, who tore his meniscus and was limited to just five games at Vanderbilt last season, projects to be a reliable scorer in the NBA. He should be able to create shots for himself as well as his teammates. But Garland is young, 19, and is a ball-dominant guard, and that has the potential to create problems with James’ style of play.  Darius Garland is one of the draft’s shiftiest shot creators thanks to his pull-up game, handle and ability to change speeds/directions on a dime. Full Scouting Video: https://t.co/TWG6yKdaZ2 pic.twitter.com/SzO8msj7v6— Mike Schmitz (@Mike_Schmitz) June 1, 2019Jarrett Culver, wing, Texas TechCulver, the go-to scorer for the Red Raiders during their run to the national championship game, is arguably the most versatile wing in the draft. At 6-6, he can play with or without the ball, rebounds well for his position and is a willing passer. Yet Culver is an inconsistent shooter — he hit 30.4% of his 3-point attempts at Texas Tech in 2018-19 — which could be an issue at the next level.🎥 Jarrett Culver talks about his ability as a two-way player, and leading Texas Tech to the NCAA title game. pic.twitter.com/Tp40eSkkZZ— Los Angeles Lakers (@Lakers) June 1, 2019De’Andre Hunter, wing, Virginia Lakers free agency rumors: Los Angeles among teams interested in Kemba Walker Kyrie Irving free agency rumors: Star is ‘more open’ to signing with Lakers NBA Draft 2019: Jarrett Culver says he can bring ‘elite’ skills to Lakers The Lakers plan to upgrade their roster will begin with the 2019 NBA Draft, where they hold the No. 4 pick after surprisingly jumping up during the lottery.The 2019 NBA Draft will take place June 20. Related News In theory, Hunter is a perfect player to slot in next to James. He’s a solid 3-point shooter who doesn’t need the ball in his hands and also excels defensively. The 6-7 wing could guard the opposition’s best scorer and, on the other end of the floor, spot up in the corners while James, or someone else, runs the offense. Hunter, however, has a lower ceiling than the other two players on this list and may end up being a reach at four.  A athletic and versatile national champion on both sides of the ball that is 6’7″ with a 7’2″ wingspan 👀.

This makes sense, as the team may be looking to acquire players who fit with James’ timeline, as opposed to a developmental prospect. The No. 4 pick could be an attractive asset in a package for Davis. Rockets guard Chris Paul and the Grizzlies’ Mike Conley reportedly will be available, as well.last_img read more
