(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.

Snyder paces Modifieds, Olson tops SportMods at Iowa Donor Network/Urbana 5 Night special

first_imgVINTON, Iowa (June 12) – Tony Snyder raced his way onto the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot while Tony Olson took home the biggest check from Sunday’s Iowa Donor Network/Urbana 5 Memorial Night at Benton County Speedway.Snyder held off hard chargers Racer Hulin and Kyle Brown for the $1,000 Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified victory. Olson collected his second big payday of the weekend, pocketing $1,400 for his Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod win.One hundred and fifteen cars were counted in the pit area. Other winners on the evening included Da­mon Murty in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars and August Bach in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks.Scott Hogan led the first two times around the track in the Modified main before fellow front row starter Snyder used the lower line to pass for the lead.The only caution came out on the 14th circuit but there was no catching Snyder following the ensu­ing restart. He led the last 18 laps, beating sixth row starter Hulin and 21st starting Brown across the stripe.Hogan and Zach less rounded out the top five.Olson led the first lap of the Northern SportMod feature from the pole but couldn’t keep the third-starting Dvorak from driving by on the lower line.A lap nine yellow proved to be the only stoppage and Olson went to the top when the race re­turned to green. Once back in the lead, he couldn’t be pried from the spot and led the rest of the way. Olson added Sunday’s purse to the $2,000 he won at Davenport Speedway’s SportMod Chal­lenge on Friday to make for a very rich weekend.Scored next were Dvorak, Ben Chapman, Tyler Soppe and Troy Hovey.Murty took the Stock Car lead early and left a three- and sometimes four-wide battle for second waging behind him.Jay Schmidt got the better of Bob Ahrendsen in that tussle. Justin Stander and Norman Chesmore were fourth and fifth, respectively.Bach came into the night second in the national points race and went home with a convincing win of his own after taking the lead before the third of three early cautions.Benji Irvine challenged most of the distance.

Adkins focused on relegation fight

first_imgNigel Adkins refuses to accept defeat in Reading’s battle to stay in the Barclays Premier League, despite conceding their outlook is bleak. The Royals, who are eight points adrift of safety with six games remaining, host Liverpool on Saturday knowing an eighth successive loss in the competition would all but doom them to relegation. Yet Adkins insists hope remains provided they can stage a late revival, drawing on last season’s drive for promotion from the npower Championship as inspiration. “We are where we are in the league, let’s not hide away from that. We face an uphill task but all we can do is focus on one game at a time,” he said. “We have to have the mentality of playing winning football and keep looking to the future. The momentum has gone against us with the run of results we’ve had recently, so we need to see if we can establish some momentum. “Last season this club showed in the Championship that if you get the right momentum you can go the other way as well.” Adkins has lost all three matches since becoming manager last month and Reading chairman Sir John Madejski has revealed he would not have sacked his predecessor Brian McDermott. Madejski also stated that some Royals fans prefer the Championship to the Premier League, which he described as “bit of a procession”, but Adkins wants to spend another season in the top flight. “I was as gobsmacked as anyone when Brian was relieved of his duties but that’s football. And I speak from my own experience,” the former Southampton boss said. “This is my first season in the Premier League and I’ve loved every second of it. It’s where I want to ply my trade. “We have several games left and we’ll see where we are at the end of the season, but my desire is to make sure Reading stay here. If we’re not in the Premier league next season, we’ll strive to get ourselves back in straightaway.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Miranda Ramirez wins 10th straight, even as Syracuse loses to No. 6 Georgia Tech

first_imgSyracuse’s Miranda Ramirez sent her opponent, Georgia Tech’s Rasheeda McAdoo, back and forth along the baseline. Each point seemed to end with a Ramirez winner that McAdoo couldn’t quite reach. McAdoo consistently blazed the same trail down the endline as she inevitably failed to catch up to a cross court shot from Ramirez.“I could tell that when she was on the run, she had a tendency to either make more errors or give me more opportunities,” Ramirez said. “So, I just tried to take advantage of that.”Ramirez and her strong baseline play resulted in her tenth straight singles win, 6-4, 6-4, and brought her to 11-1 on the season. But the Ramirez win was not enough for Syracuse (5-8, 2-4 Atlantic Coast) on Sunday to overcome No. 6 Georgia Tech (17-2, 7-0), though, as the Yellow Jackets won, 4-3.The freshman Ramirez faced a tough challenge in her debut at SU’s top singles spot against Georgia Tech’s highest ranked player, No. 46 McAdoo. Their styles clashed.McAdoo played with power. The senior’s serves sizzled, and her hits from any point on the court were strong. Ramirez played with finesse. She seemed content to wait along her baseline and return any slams that McAdoo offered. In focusing on placement rather than power, Ramirez succeeded in outlasting McAdoo.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textRamirez went through the whole match without changing the blank expression on her face. On the other side, McAdoo jawed at the ref on multiple occasions. McAdoo consistently seemed frustrated as she looked at the ceiling or stared at her feet when she couldn’t reach a deep baseline shot following long rallies. Ramirez stayed stoic as ever, regardless of the outcome of an individual point.“It’s more about the process than about the end result,” Ramirez said. “As long as I keep focusing on what I’m doing the same in the moment, then the result will come after.”Ramirez lost a tight doubles match with her partner, Gabriela Knutson. The pair lost to Georgia Tech’s No. 113 Paige Hourigan and Kenya Jones, 7-6 (7-3). Both Knutson and Ramirez felt they played well in doubles, and agreed that it didn’t hold them back heading into singles, where they both won.“(Ramirez) has the right attitude,” head coach Younes Limam said. “She works extremely hard at every single practice. Hopefully she will keep at it and keep improving, because that’s our main goal is to keep getting better every day.”Ramirez will just continue to do what has worked ten times in a row: Trust her process and calmly hit baseline winners.

There are three games on the Saturday NFL schedule today, starting with Texans vs. Buccaneers at 1 p.m. ET, and all three games are scheduled to be broadcast nationally on NFL Network.All three Saturday NFL games have playoff picture implications. Houston needs a win in Tampa Bay on Saturday to clinch the AFC South for the second straight season and for the fourth time in the last five years. The Texans would join the Patriots and Chiefs as the only NFL teams with four or more division titles since 2015. A win would do the trick, but a Titans loss on Sunday also would seal the division for the Texans no matter what happens Saturday. Further, if both teams were to tie their opponents in Week 16, Houston would clinch the AFC South over Tennessee.MORE: Watch Texans vs. Buccaneers live with fuboTV (7-day free trial)In both our picks against the spread and our straight-up predictions for Week 16, Sporting News projected a Texans victory over the Buccaneers on Saturday. Below are the explanations.Pick against the spread: The Texans have Deshaun Watson with his main receiving weapons healthy. The Buccaneers have a red-hot Jameis Winston despite being down Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. Neither pass defense is good, so Watson and Winston will turn this into a matinee shootout. Houston has a lot more at stake with the AFC South title on the line, while Tampa is playing for a playoff-less second place finish in the NFC South. The Bucs are bound to cool off a little, and Watson is overdue for a monster game. He will pull of one of his dazzling comebacks to save the Texans (again). Pick: Texans win 34-31 and cover the spread.Straight-up prediction: With a red-hot Jameis Winston, the Buccaneers have scored 35 or more points three times during their four-game winning streak. Which good considering their defense allows 28.4 points per game. The latter stat is good news for the Texans as they try to win the AFC South and maintain their playoff positioning. Also working against Tampa Bay is the fact that injuries are piling up around Winston, meaning he might be more inclined to force more throws. Even against Houston’s shaky pass defense, bad things happen for the Bucs when Winston tries to force too many throws. Pick: Texans 27, Buccaneers 21.Below is everything you need to know to watch Texans vs. Buccaneers on Saturday, including the kickoff time, TV channel and a full Week 16 NFL schedule.What channel is Texans vs. Buccaneers on Saturday?TV channel (national): NFL NetworkTV channel (Houston): KRIVTV channel (Tampa Bay): WMORLive stream: fuboTV (7-day free trial)A special Saturday presentation of NFL football calls for a special broadcast team on NFL Network.
