  • Kruse nominated for RPM national promoter of the year award

    first_imgWinner of the 43rd ARPY will be announced on Feb. 11. Kruse will start the 14th year of a 20-year contract at Marshalltown this spring. The Friday night venue has been sanctioned by IMCA since 1984. Toby Kruse appreciates the recognition from his peers just as much. MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa – Another nomination for short track racing’s most prestigious award is great.  “What it takes to succeed in any business is atmosphere. We held our awards banquet Saturday night and everybody was very positive,” he said. “We’re going to keep carrying that over to race season and start March 21-23 with the inaugural $5,000 to win King of the Highbanks special for Stock Cars.” “What we’ve been able to accomplish here is a testament to our track employees, to the fair board and to IMCA,” Kruse said. “Marshalltown is one of the longest running tracks because of that stability. We focus on weekly racing and that gives us a strong foundation for special events.”  “It’s a good feeling to be nominated for this award. It’s a lot of work being a promoter,” said Kruse, also a regional winner for his efforts at Marshalltown in 2008 and twice as part of the promotional team at 141 Speedway in Francis Creek, Wis. “Other promoters know just how much work it is and to be nominated by them for this award is very heart warming.” “Our weekly (car count) averages are staying pretty strong. That’s no small accomplishment these days,” said Kruse, acknowledging both the exposure generated by on-demand television and the friendly atmosphere at the race track. The long-time promoter at Marshalltown Speedway has been named promoter of the year in Racing Promotion Monthly’s Great Plains Region for the second time. As such, he’s one of six nominees for the Auto Racing Promoter of the Year award, to be announced next month during the RPM workshops in Daytona Beach.  The traditional home track of the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car division, Marshalltown also sanctions the IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Late Models, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks and Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods.  “I’ve known Toby since I got into this industry. He is well deserving of all recognition,” said IMCA President Brett Root. “Toby has a time-proven record of success and the credentials to be Auto Racing Promoter of the Year.”last_img read more

  • Track champions crowned at Davenport

    first_imgBy Mike McGuire DAVENPORT, Iowa (Aug. 22) – Friday was Season Championship night at Davenport Speedway and many drivers were competing like it was for the final time. The top 10 were lined up by points for the feature, with the point leader in each class offered the back row challenge for a chance to win double the money.One driver accepting the challenge was Justin Kay in the Petersen Plumbing & Heating IMCA Late Model feature. Kay had little to lose, as he had already clinched the track title. However Kay’s race would end early with mechanical issues. Nate Beuseling blasted out to an early lead, which he held until lap 12. Brunson Behning owned the point until Mike Murphy Jr. got under Behning for the lead. Murphy led the final six laps to make his third trip to victory lane this season. Behning held on for second, just ahead of Beusleling, Todd Malmstrom and Matt Ryan. The closest points battle coming into the night was in the Milan Heating and Air IMCA Modified division, where four drivers were separated by only 25 points. Doug Crampton and Mitch Morris started in the front row, with Morris taking the early advantage.In fact, Morris would go on to lead all 20 laps and take his first win of the season.Joe Beal battled his way to a second place finish, just ahead of Bob Dominacki. Rich Smith and Tony Von Dresky completed the top five. Doug Crampton’s seventh place finish was just enough to give him his third career track title at Davenport. Bryce Garnhart had his sights on national points and elected to start the Hawkeye Auto IMCA SportMod main from the pole. He led all 15 laps en route to his sixth feature win of the season and his second straight championship at Davenport. Jayson Wiggins had a strong run in second. Jake Morris, Jacob Beal, and Jared Miller completed the top five. Five drivers accepted the ALS Ice water bucket challenge during intermission and the evening was completed with mechanic races.last_img read more

  • McGinley opts for three wild cards

    first_img Press Association Europe captain Paul McGinley has announced he will have three wild cards for next year’s Ryder Cup at Gleneagles. The European points list comprises points gained by players from all Race to Dubai tournaments during the qualification process – which starts at the Wales Open from September 5-8 – with one point equalling one euro. The world points list comprises official world golf ranking points gained in sanctioned tournaments around the world during qualifying. The decision brings McGinley in line with American counterpart Tom Watson, who announced in March that he was reducing his number of picks from four to three. “I have said on a number of occasions that if something ain’t broke then don’t fix it, and I think that applies to the qualification process for the European Ryder Cup team,” said McGinley, whose proposal received unanimous backing from the European Tour’s Tournament Committee during their meeting at Wentworth on Monday night. “You only need to look at the record books to see that we haven’t done too badly of late so I didn’t see the need to make sweeping changes. “I’ve kept the qualification list order the same as Olly (Jose Maria Olazabal) had it for Medinah, the only difference being that I’ve increased the number of picks from two to three. “I’ve done that to give myself a little bit of extra flexibility when it comes to making my selections. Hopefully this will ensure that I have the right players to face the examination paper that Gleneagles will set out next September.” center_img His predecessor Jose Maria Olazabal had just two selections to make for the 2012 match against the United States at Medinah, when he selected Nicolas Colsaerts and Ian Poulter. However, McGinley will be given more of an opportunity to tailor his side with the addition of the third wild card, which means nine automatic qualifying places will be available for the 12-man team, four via the European Tour points list and five from the world points list. last_img read more

  • Cricket News Regret mistakes on previous Australia tours: Virat Kohli’s shocking admission

    first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Even before departing for the tour of Australia, the Indian cricket team skipper said that he would not get into a confrontational mode with the opposition. “I think from last time round, I’ve become more assured of myself, I don’t really find the need to prove anything to anyone. In the early stage of my career I used to think of these things as important milestones which are really important in one’s career, but now the focus is purely and solely on making the team win at any cost.I don’t find the need to get involved in anything with the opposition and I think those are changes that keep happening gradually as you go forward,” Kohli had said at that time.Kohli indirectly admitted that the mistakes that he committed have only made him a better individual today. “I learn from my own mistakes, I realise my own mistakes myself and just kept correcting them through the journey,” Kohli said.

In 2011/12, he scored his first century which was at the Adelaide Oval and in the next tour, he smashed four centuries and finished with 692 runs at an average of 86.

This would come to the fore in his contests against Australia in Down Under. In 2011/12, Kohli showed the middle finger to a section of the crowd in Sydney after he was subject to plenty of abuse. On the previous tour in 2014/15, he was involved in an intense confrontation with Mitchell Johnson which led to him to say that he does not respect people who do not respect him. However, in an interaction with former Australia wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist on Fox Sports, Kohli has admitted he realised his mistakes.“I didn’t have a good understanding of where to draw the line and stuff like that. Those are things that I, I wouldn’t say I regret, but those definitely I look at them as mistakes. But mistakes that were important for me to commit so I can learn from them,” Kohli said.last_img read more

  • Football: Four takeaways from Badgers’ dominant win over Minnesota in border battle

    first_imgThe No. 10 Wisconsin Badgers (10-2, 7-2 Big Ten) reclaimed the Axe and booked their ticket to the Big Ten Championship Game with a dominant 38–17 victory against the No. 15 Minnesota Golden Gophers (10-2, 7-2) on Saturday.The performance was their most complete of the season and now gives them a shot at redemption against No. 2 The Ohio State University after falling 38–7 in Columbus earlier this season.Football: Badgers forfeit CFP hopes, Big Ten landscape remains openFor the Badgers, taking down the undefeated The Ohio State University not once but twice was their last shot at Read…The victory now moves Minnesota and Wisconsin’s all-time series to 61-60-8 in favor of the Badgers. It also gives Head Coach Paul Chryst’s team the redemption they needed after falling to the Gophers 37–15 last year in Madison.Here are four takeaways from Saturday’s Big Ten West-clinching victory as well as a few overlooked players who became stars of the game.Football: Badgers dismantle Minnesota, win Big Ten WestThe No. 12 University of Wisconsin football team (10-2, 7-2 Big Ten) defeated the No. 8 Minnesota Golden Gophers (10-2, Read…First, Chryst made an impressive offensive adjustment early on, which continued his offensive innovation from recent weeks and helped the Badgers take control of the football game.The Badgers started the contest with the football but went three-and-out, giving the ball to the Gophers who promptly took a 7–0 lead.The three plays on that drive were all Jonathan Taylor runs, the type of straight-forward running plays Badger fans have grown accustomed to seeing since Taylor came to Madison. They went for just nine yards.The Badgers then got the ball back and went 19 yards before punting the ball away again. Eight plays to start the game yielded only 28 yards and one first down. Football: Four takeaways from Wisconsin’s loss to The Ohio State UniversityThe No. 18 Wisconsin Badgers (6-2, 3-2 Big Ten) were no match for arguably the nation’s No. 1 overall team Read…It was at this point that Chryst and Offensive Coordinator Joe Rudolph made an adjustment and changed the offensive looks they gave the Gophers.When the Badgers got the ball for a third time, this time still down 7–0, they started mixing wide receiver motions into the arsenal, including a jet sweep on 4th-and-3 to Kendric Pryor and wildcat snaps to Aron Cruickshank. Just as they did during the weeks leading up to Saturday, the new looks started working and allowed the Badgers to drive on the Gopher defense.Despite a Cruickshank fumble in Minnesota territory to end the drive, Chryst stuck with his new plan and, as a result, the Badgers went on to score on six of their seven remaining possessions, including a momentum-changing wrinkle in the return game followed by a Pryor rushing touchdown to put the Badgers up 24–10 in the third quarter.Football: Wisconsin battles Minnesota for Big Ten West crown, bragging rights in marquee matchupThe No. 13 Wisconsin Badgers (9-2, 6-2 Big Ten) travel to Minneapolis Saturday to face the No. 9 Minnesota Golden Read…The second takeaway from Saturday is Defensive Coordinator Jim Leonhard’s defensive game plan and how he was able to hold Minnesota’s explosive offense to only three points from the 12:30 mark in the first quarter to late in the fourth quarter when the game was already firmly in hand.The Gophers started the game off with a bang, scoring a 51-yard touchdown on their second offensive play. The play saw true freshman cornerback Semar Melvin lined up 10 yards deep against Minnesota’s star receiver Rashod Bateman with no safety help over the top. Minnesota Quarterback Tanner Morgan sold a run fake, looked deep and found his man who was running free with nothing but green grass in front of him.After Morgan connected with Bateman on the deep-strike touchdown, the tides turned and Leonhard’s defense gave up an average of only 29 yards per drive on their next eight drives. They also managed to force three turnovers during that span.A driving factor behind the unit’s success — aside from Zack Baun’s dominance on the edge and Caesar Williams’ interception and two impressive pass break-ups — was Leonhard shying away from playing off of coverage on Johnson and Bateman after the first touchdown and dialing up second-level blitzes in key situations.The third takeaway from Saturday is, unlike during last year’s loss to the Gophers, the defensive line absolutely dominated the game up front.Last year’s matchup saw Minnesota rush for more than 200 yards and three touchdowns. On Saturday, Leonhard’s defensive line held the Gophers to just 76 yards and zero touchdowns on 30 carries and sacked Morgan five times.Notable performances on the defensive side of the ball include Baun’s nine tackles, 2.5 tackles-for-loss and two sacks as well as Garrett Rand’s seven tackles, tackle-for-loss and sack.The final takeaway from the victory is the Jack Coan to Quintez Cephus connection looks like the best Wisconsin quarterback to receiver combination since Russell Wilson and Nick Toon connected for 926 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2011.The Morgan to Bateman connection was unsurprisingly the best on the field on Saturday but, surprisingly, Coan and Cephus weren’t far behind.Cephus ended the day with five catches for 114 yards and a gorgeous 47-yard touchdown on a play early in the third quarter when he beat his man and Coan found him over the top.Football: Chase Young, Buckeye defense likely rob Jonathan Taylor of Heisman hopesIn order to win a trophy which has slowly become an award for college football’s best quarterback, Jonathan Taylor was Read…As a final note, Saturday’s game would have turned out differently were it not for the timely contributions from cornerback Caesar Williams, linebacker Jack Sanborn and safety Reggie Pearson.With Williams’ interception after Sanborn tipped a pass, his two key goal line pass break-ups, Sanborn’s overall versatility and tackles in space and Pearson’s seven tackles from his safety position, these guys showed out and, even though they may not get the press clippings like Baun and Chris Orr, they were some of the driving forces behind the victory. Overall, this was the Badgers’ most complete performance of the season and bodes well for their chances against the Buckeyes next weekend, though coming away with a victory is still no doubt a tall task. Keep in mind, though, that the Badgers trailed the Buckeyes 10–7 late in the third quarter before the wheels fell off, and the 38–7 score may not tell the whole story of how these two teams match up.The Badgers will be back in action on Saturday in Indianapolis, Indiana in the Big Ten Championship Game against The Ohio State University at 7 p.m. CST.last_img read more

  • Ravens find workout to be welcome escape from virus concerns

    first_img First Published: 18th August, 2020 13:34 IST WATCH US LIVE After being tested for coronavirus outside the building, donning masks and carefully practicing social distancing in the locker room, the Baltimore Ravens enjoyed a bit of normalcy Monday with their first full-team workout in pads.With the exception of the masks on members of the coaching staff and the absence of fans in the stands, the 90-minute session had the look of a routine training camp practice.“Being back out there with the guys, getting a sweat going, stopping the plays and having contact, for just a brief moment it felt like we didn’t have to worry about the virus,” Pro Bowl linebacker Matthew Judon said. “It felt good to be back in the pads.”Judon, who accepted the franchise tag during the offseason, acknowledged that “football is different” during this pandemic. But the Ravens are safely and carefully moving forward, along with the 31 other teams, hoping to play a season that will surely be unlike any other.There probably won’t be fans in the stands at most stadiums. Yet coach John Harbaugh still had loud music blaring from speakers in the end zone while the offense ran plays in an effort to simulate the noise of a crowd.“It’s what we do. It’s fun. I think it’s good for the guys,” Harbaugh said. “It’s a valuable tool and I think we all enjoy it.”The Ravens’ 14-2 record during the regular season was the best in the NFL last year, but a loss to Tennessee in their playoff opener left them with a bitter feeling and provided incentive to end this season on a far happier note.The process began two weeks ago when the team reported to camp, and being on the field in pads was the next step toward reaching the Super Bowl.“We’ve got a great team. We’ve got a lot of confident players, a lot of confident coaches that trust in us,” right offensive tackle Orlando Brown Jr. said. “It was just exciting to get out there and play some real ball with the pads on, being able to physically grab and move guys. There was a whole other level of energy today.”After the final horn sounded, the players walked back into the training facility, where they donned their masks and kept their distance from each other, a task made easier by tracking monitors on their wrists that flash when a person lingers fewer than six feet away.“It ends up being like a dog trainer collar,” defensive coordinator Don Martindale said. “You just know what six feet is now.”On the field, though, the Ravens huddled up, banged helmets on the line and slapped high fives after a standout play, such Lamar Jackson’s long pass that ended with Willie Snead’s leaping catch in the end zone between two defenders.“It’s football,” Harbaugh said. “It’s August 17, we’re 26 days from our first game against the Browns and we’re just getting into pads. We understand the urgency of it.”Although there won’t be any preseason games, there’s no avoiding injuries. Harbaugh disclosed that wide receiver Chris Moore will miss several weeks after breaking a finger and second-year cornerback Iman Marshall sustained a major knee injury that will require surgery and almost certainly keep him sidelined for the season.Marshall, a fourth-round pick out of Southern California, appeared in three games last year.“He had been working hard and was practicing well and just came down on his right leg really awkwardly,” Harbaugh said.Marshall on Monday said on Twitter : “Can’t dwell on what already happened just have to keep pushing with God and faith by my side.”Image credits: AP SUBSCRIBE TO US Associated Press Television News COMMENTcenter_img LIVE TV Last Updated: 18th August, 2020 13:34 IST Ravens Find Workout To Be Welcome Escape From Virus Concerns After being tested for coronavirus outside the building, donning masks and carefully practicing social distancing in the locker room, the Baltimore Ravens enjoyed a bit of normalcy Monday with their first full-team workout in pads Written By FOLLOW USlast_img read more

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments Submitted to Sumner Newscow by Nick Struble — The local 15 year old Kansas State Champions from Wellington traveled to Boonville Mo for the Midwest Plains Regional Tournament last Thursday.  The team checked in at 2 p.m. and the Babe Ruth commissioner gave them the chain of events for the tournament.They also found out rather than splitting up into several host homes, the players would all stay in one large beautiful host home tucked away in the Missouri hills 10 miles south of Boonville.  Needless to say, the boys were thrilled that they would be together.  When pulling up to the house, they went nuts! The home was on 160 acres and overlooked a 40 acre private lake and had a batting cage with pitching machine in the back yard!The team enjoyed a dinner banquet that evening where all the teams would finally see  each other for the first time.  The tension was in the air as these boys sized each other up.  “Look at his beard”,  “Is he a player or a coach?”, “Man they’ve got some big boys”.  After a wonderful diner for players, coaches, and family, the teams headed to the field for an evening of competitive, but friendly games to challenge infielders, outfielders, catchers, and base runners.Wellington would play High Tower, Minn. at noon on Friday for the opening game of the tournament.  The field was tarped as rain was in the forecast all day.  Wesley Gilmore was the starting pitcher for Wellington.  He would be taken out in the second inning due to giving up 5 runs the first inning.   Dylan Jones replaced Gilmore on the mound and pitched through the fourth inning.Down came the rain and the field was tarped.  There was a one hour rain delay and Wellington was down 7-1.  It wasn’t looking good for Wellington so Jones was pulled to save him for a later game due to pitching/inning restrictions.  Conner Phelps would pitch the 5th and 6th inning and Wellington would lose 11-1.  While holding Kansas to just one run in 6 innings, Minnesota also managed 13 hits while committing just one error. Luke Thomsen picked up the win for Minnesota and Wesley Gilmore took the loss for Wellington.  Skyler Struble and Cameron Bartelson had the only hits of the game.This would be the only game played on Friday due to a down poor of rain following Wellington’s loss.  Games would start at noon the following day however, only 3 games would be played so the locals would have to wait a full day to play their second game.  With a full day off, the team spent the day at their host homes lake fishing, swimming, and tubing behind the jet ski.Sunday at 12:30, Wellington would play  SEMO (Southeast Missouri) for their second game of the tournament.  The locals fans were anxious as there was a huge storm cell on the radar moving towards Boonville.  Luckily the rain moved South and they played ball.Jace Lowe pitched the entire game and Kansas would hand the Missouri Champs their second loss of the tournament with a score of 3-0. Wellington scored all three runs in the first three innings against SEMO.  While pitching a shutout against Missouri, Lowe also struck out four batters and gave up just three hits and two walks. “Jace Lowe pitched the best game I’ve seen him throw all summer.” Welsey Gilmore, Skyler Struble, and Jace Lowe each had one single in the game for Kansas.Wellington would find out they would play North Dakota state champs out of Bismarck Monday at 12:30.   Wesley Gilmore started pitching for Wellington but would be pulled quickly as he gave up four runs in the first.  Dylan Jones came in and relieved but would give up three runs in the second to make the score 7-0. Jones pitched 5 2/3 innings and gave up three runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out one.Kansas would rally back with one run in each of the third and fourth innings of play.Wellington was down 7-2 in the seventh inning and had one more at bat.  Conner Phelps led off with a nice base hit single into left field.  Wesley Gilmore would then hit a fly ball into center that would be dropped and placed runners on first and second with no outs.Dylan Jones would draw a walk to load the bases for Skyler Struble, still with no outs.  Struble would rip a line drive over the third baseman into left field and score 2 runs.Now the score was 7-4 with runners on first and second base.  Jace Lowe would hit a sacrifice fly for the first out of the inning, but moved Jones from second to third.With runners on the corners, Cameron Bartelson would put the ball in play and grounded out, but would score Jones on the RBI.  With two outs, the score was now 7-5.  Right fielder Ethan Tunnell came to the plate with Struble on second base. By now every Wellington fan and player were on their feet and anxious.  Tunnell watches 2 strikes go by before hitting a hard grounder to the second baseman who made a great play for the third and final out of the game.North Dakota ends Wellington’s season with a score of 7-5.  Bismarck out hit Wellington 10-8. “These boys never gave up and battled to the end”. They could have folded when they were down 7-0 but they fought back with pride and represented Kansas well.Iowa would go undefeated in the Regional tournament and will advance to the Babe Ruth World Series in Loudoun County Virginia August 17-24.The 15 year old All-Stars ended with a post-season record of 8 wins and 3 losses, and the title of KANSAS STATE CHAMPIONS!15-year-olds in Boonville, Missourilast_img read more
