#1 terception. Without his make-up speed, Saskatchewans von lebaobei123 18.04.2019 02:35

(SportsNetwork.com) - The gloves are off for those drivers and teams that remain in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. That was quite obvious in Sundays race at Texas Motor Speedway, where Jeff Gordon and Brad Keselowski were involved in one of the most memorable brawls in NASCARs history. Texas was the second race in the Eliminator Round of the Chase. Eight drivers are currently in the playoff field, but after next Sundays event at Phoenix International Raceway, the field will be trimmed to just four drivers who will battle for the Sprint Cup Series championship on Nov. 16 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. This year, NASCAR radically changed its format for the Chase, which included an expanded field of 16 drivers and a series of elimination rounds. In the next chapter of NASCARs Boys, Have At It, mayhem broke out on pit road after the race had concluded at Texas. While Jimmie Johnson was heading to victory lane, his Hendrick Motorsports teammate, Gordon, parked his car right next to Keselowski on pit road and then approached him to express his displeasure for an incident that occurred in the closing laps. Gordon, who is attempting to win his fifth series title this year, held the lead for the restart in the first of two green-white-checkered finishes, but Keselowski bumped into him while battling for position following the restart. Gordon suffered a flat tire from the contact and then spun out in turn 3. He ended up finishing one lap down in 29th, while Keselowski placed third. At first, Gordon had heated words with Keselowski while crew members from both of their teams were engaged in a shoving match. Then second-place finisher Kevin Harvick approached Keselowski from behind and pushed him. That sparked the big brawl with plenty of punches being thrown. Kevin likes everybody to fight for some reason, Keselowski said. I came here to race, not to fight. I raced as hard as I could, and these guys just didnt like it. Harvick also was irritated with Keselowski for his actions on the track. If youre going to race like that, youre going to have to man up at some point, Harvick said of Keselowski. Hes done it several times. Cant just turn around and let everybody fight all the time without you in there. Have to stand up for your actions at some point yourself. Both Gordon and Keselowski suffered cuts and bruises to their faces and lips during the altercation. There wasnt a conversation, Gordon said. You cant have a conversation with (Keselowski). He gets himself in this position, and he has to pay the consequences. Im going to race him the same way he races me. That kind of stuff is just uncalled for, and Im not going to stand for it. NASCAR is reviewing the incident, and penalties could be forthcoming. NASCAR senior vice president of competition and racing development Robin Pemberton said the sanctioning body will look at the film of the fight and determine what, if any, actions will be taken. We knew the new (Chase) format was going to put a lot of pressure on people to perform and make aggressive moves and decisions out there on the racetrack, Pemberton said. You could see the result of that after the race. Were going to take our time, and weve got a lot of film to review and things like that. The important thing is to make the right decision at the end of the day. Pemberton did note that NASCAR had no issue with Keselowski making contact with Gordon after the restart. To them (NASCAR), Im sure its a racing incident, but to me, its just a bunch of crap, Gordon said. The kid (Keselowski) is just doing stuff way over his head. Thats just uncalled for. Youre racing for a win and a championship. You dont go slam someone and cut their left-rear tire. If thats what it takes, then no problem. We can do the same thing to him. This is the second time in this 10-race Chase that Keselowski has been in a physical altercation with another competitor. After the Oct. 12 night race at Charlotte had ended, Denny Hamlin had to be restrained from going after Keselowski in the garage area and then Matt Kenseth started a fight with Keselowski between a pair of team haulers. Keselowski intentionally bumped Hamlin from behind and attempted to spin him out during the cool-down lap after the two tangled multiple times following the last restart with two laps to go. Then on pit road, Keselowski purposely ran into the back of Kenseth before he bumped Tony Stewart from behind. NASCAR fined Keselowski $50,000 and placed him on probation for four races for his actions at Charlotte. The following week, he won the elimination race for the Contender Round at Talladega Superspeedway, which automatically advanced him into the Eliminator Round. Well go through these battles, Keselowski said. Ive gone through them before and come out stronger. Ill go through them again and come out stronger, a better racecar driver. But what Im not going to do is back down. Im not going to get in the spot where I was in 2013 where I tried to be exactly what they all wanted me to be, because what they want me to be is a loser, and Im not here to lose. Im here to win. That means Im going to have to drive my car, harder, stronger, faster than everybody out there. Thats what I feel like I did (Sunday at Texas). There were no punches thrown at Charlotte, as Kenseth managed to put Keselowski in a headlock before Kenseths team members were able to pull him away. Kenseth was not penalized. With the brawl at Texas being more physical than the skirmish at Charlotte, NASCAR might hand down stiffer penalties. You shouldnt punch somebody, Pemberton said. Everybody gets together, and when youre holding on to each other and grabbing and this, that and the other, its one thing. When punches are landed, thats a different scenario. Two years ago in the Chase race at Phoenix, Gordon and Clint Bowyers teams were involved in a post-race fight after Gordon intentionally wrecked Bowyer in the closing laps. Gordon was not suspended for the season finale at Homestead, which he won, but he received a $100,000 fine and a loss of 25 points for his actions. The series is now heading to Phoenix, but who knows what will happen there this weekend. Everything is just so intense right now, Harvick said. Everybody is just kind of throwing caution to the wind to do all they can for their team. Everybody is racing as hard as they can. Just glad to be in the mix. Just 18 points separate the eight drivers who are still in the Chase. With none of them winning at either Martinsville or Texas, all four positions for the championship race at Homestead have yet to be determined. Asics Wholesale China . Louis, MO (SportsNetwork.

The 25-year-old McIlroy, who is from Northern Ireland, was eligible to play for either Ireland or Team GB when golf makes its return to the Olympics in Brazil for the first time since 1904.Speed was on full display for all CFL fans to enjoy in Week 2 of the 2014 season. What had me thinking about this was the 108-yard interception return by newcomer Antwaun Molden. Truth be known, it was his first interception in his first start of his CFL career that peaked my interest. Initially, Molden was beat on a climb route by Brett Swain, the first year receiver for the Riders. Thats when we were introduced to Antwuans explosiveness and speed. He got on his horse and tracked down Swain to make a spectacular interception. Without his make-up speed, Saskatchewans offence is in the endzone, and at that time of the game, Moldens show of speed could very well have changed the complexion of the contest. Later on, with the Riders offense on the move, Molden was at it again. This time, he broke on a ball that Darian Durant should have never thrown, and this is coming from a guy who threw 211 picks, so I should know. Cant fault Durant, that happens. In this case, it was more about great anticipation and break on the ball timed perfectly. Then it was off to the races with Durant trying his best to maintain his angle, eventually making the speedy linebacker to ever so slightly alter his course to the endzone. Talk about changing the complexion of a game; Moldens incredible performance was a 14-point swing at the very least. I guess former CFL receiver Jason Armstead was right when he had tattooed SPEED on one calf and KILLS on the other. Molden was not the only player on the weekend displaying the ability to run fast. We saw a glimpse of what RB/REC Anthony Coombs brings to the table; raw-fluid speed. Im extremely disappointed to hear that Andre Durie is out with a broken collarbone for 6-8 weeks, but this Coombs kid is going to be fun to watch in his absence! Chad Owens was doing his thing whenever he touched the ball for the Argonauts. He is not only loaded with speed but tremendous quickness to boot; so dangerous and difficult to contend with. He put up phenomenal numbers that others only dream about but with Owens, its become the norm. Theres nothing normal about it, its special to be able to watch this guy play the sport of football. I enjoy everything about this guys approach, as should all CFL fans, young and old! The young ones can aspire to be like Chad and the older ones, like myself, can only dream about it. Taj Smitth, the speedy wide receiver for Saskatchewan, got in behind the Argo defence for a touchdown with his speed, and was quickly tracked down by Molden, who showed his wheels once again.dddddddddddd He walked down Smith and showcased what kind of speed he brings to the table. Now I know Smith will probably say he was shutting it down before he reached the endzone and thats why Molden walked him. I say to that, never let up and it wont appear that way and he was walking the speedy receiver down anyway. Friday Night Football made its 2014 debut this past Friday, and Gord Miller and myself witnessed speed by last years defensive player of the year, Chip Cox, on one of the coolest plays you will ever see. Scott Paxson, a second-year player from Penn State, picked off Kevin Glenn and instinctively optioned the ball over to No. 11 himself and it was a walk-in touchdown by one of the fastest in the league. Heads-up play, filled with athleticism from both defenders. When you were watching the RedBlacks take on the Bombers, I know yall had to see the speed of what could be the fastest player in the CFL, Chevon Walker. Although he did not break off a long one, you still witnessed brilliant speed on his 29-yarder. On the same play, watch the man responsible for Walker and you will see one of the most promising players in the CFL in Ian Wild. The second year linebacker has speed himself as he had to go fetch Walker and help usher him out of bounds in a hurry. Of course, Wild had fear as a motivator because Walker had leveraged him out of the backfield and like I said, Wild was in a trail position, but not for long. I know about fear and running fast. I ran for 5,031 yards in my time and most of those yards, I was running scared because at least one, maybe two or three big-bad dudes with bad intentions were coming and coming fast. Fear will make you run really fast and for me, speed varied depending on who was chasing me! Sometimes I was my 4.57 self and other times I was 4.1, like Raghib Rocket Ismail, who was the fastest of them all... or was that Marcus Grant or Waddell Smith??? So all this talk about speed, the speed that we witness, week in and week out in the CFL, where did you see speed this past week in the CFL? Whos the fastest today and whos the fastest of all time? Debate amongst yourselves!!! Ready Break!!! ' ' '
