Dirt Defender, Stephenville Starter combine to give new IMCA random drawing cash prize

Dirt Defender, Stephenville Starter combine to give new IMCA random drawing cash prize

first_imgRED OAK, Texas – Two Texas companies ante up the $500 cash prize awaiting the winner of a random drawing to be held following the 2017 IMCA point season.Top drivers in national point races for IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center Southern SportMods and Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods all get a free pair of vented mud covers manufactured by Dirt Defender, of Red Oak.Dirt Defender and Stephenville Starter of Stephenville each give $250 to a randomly selected driver in one of those divisions who wins 10 or more weekly heat races and submits a photo of their car displaying use of two Dirt Defender mud covers.That driver also receives a free Stephenville Starter and those awards will be presented during the IMCA national banquet in November.Stephenville Starter returns as title sponsor and provides a portion of the point fund for the Hobby Stock race of champions, to be held Sept. 9 during the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s.Modified, Stock Car, Hobby Stock and Northern SportMod race of champions winners and the Southern SportMod champion at Super Nationals all receive starters.“We are constantly looking for trends with our products so drivers know they are getting the best and safest products possible. Due to several companies trying to mimic our products, we feel that our changes in 2017 will not only benefit IMCA drivers and spectators but also help our company to identify our products,” said Billy Vest, co-owner with Dennis Bissonnette of Dirt Defender. “Our wheel covers have been stamped with Made in the USA along with our trademark Spartan logo.“We’ve also adjusted it to fit the changes some wheel manufactures have made this year. As most people know, we made our expansion ring in white for driver safety and for us to recognize any issues with our ring,” he added. “This year, we have changed our ring color to neon yellow in order to distinguish ours from the ones made by other companies. As always, our company thanks each and every person, team, company and dealer for all they do to support us.”Information about Stephenville Starter-made products is available by calling 254 965-7890, and about Dirt Defender wheel covers calling 469 556-4612 and on Facebook.Stephenville Starter is in its ninth year of IMCA sponsorship, Dirt Defender its third.“This is a great new twist on a program where two companies work together to give back to rac­ers, “ commented IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder. “Drivers already are encouraged to sub­mit photos of their cars to verify 10 heat race wins, and if they also can submit one with Dirt De­fender mud covers in place it could potentially be worth a very nice cash bonus.”last_img read more

Tagliapietra predicts bright future for Hamilton’s ‘magic’ Michael McGovern

Tagliapietra predicts bright future for Hamilton’s ‘magic’ Michael McGovern

first_imgHamilton keeper Michael McGovern deserves a big summer move, according to team-mate Lucas Tagliapietra. His New Douglas Park deals expires at the end of the current campaign but Tagliapietra insists he will continue to follow his dreams, even if he finds it difficult saying goodbye each time he moves on. “It’s hard not to get attached to guys in your dressing room because as a player, they are not just a team-mate, sometimes they are a friend,” he explained. “When you move on, that can be the hardest thing in football. It’s your career, though, so you sometimes have to make those hard decisions. “I know what it’s like. I’m always far from home. When you move to a new country, the players and staff at your new club can become like your family. When you have to leave it is difficult. “But I’m not thinking about settling down in one place yet. I’m just thinking about doing my best here and see what the future brings because I have my dreams as well.” But the big Brazilian defender just hopes the Northern Irishman decides to stay put at Accies. McGovern is out of contract at the end of the season and has been liked with a move to Hibernian when his deal expires. Hamilton boss Martin Canning has already set up renewal talks but McGovern is in no rush to make a decision. The 31-year-old has the chance to put himself in the shop window when he appears for Michael O’Neill’s Green and White Army at next summer’s Euro 2016 finals and he could wait until after the tournament to make up his mind. Tagliapietra, speaking ahead of Saturday’s Ladbrokes Premiership visit of Ross County, said: “We all know Mikey is magic. He is a good keeper. Of course every centre-back wants to have a Mikey behind him. “We know he is working hard and gets what he deserves. But I’d also like it if he stays here. “It’s great having someone like him in the team. He is a leader and gives us security. I feel safe with him in the side. “I have played with some good goalkeepers in my career but here, Mikey is the captain. He has different qualities as well as experience. He passes that on to us and that’s great for a young player like me.” Like McGovern, Tagliapietra is keeping his options open. The 25-year-old has led a nomadic existence since leaving his homeland in 2011, having also had spells in Hong Kong and Moldova. Press Associationlast_img read more

Ronaldo crowned FIFA’s best player in the world

Ronaldo crowned FIFA’s best player in the world

first_img… American Carli Lloyd won women’s player-of-the-year award againBy Brian HomewoodZURICH, Switzerland (Reuters) – Cristiano Ronaldo won FIFA’s player-of-the-year award for the fourth time yesterday, beating his old rival Lionel Messi who was pulled out of the ceremony only a few hours earlier by his club Barcelona.Italian Claudio Ranieri won the coach-of-the-year award for leading rank outsiders Leicester City to the English Premier League title.Ronaldo was rewarded for his performance in 2016 when he won the Champions League with his club Real Madrid and then Euro 2016 with Portugal. Five-time winner and four-time runner-up Messi was second and Frenchman Antoine Griezmann third.Barcelona said that tomorrow’s game against Athletic Bilbao would take priority over the ceremony and that none of their invited players would travel, which disappointed Ronaldo.“I would like Messi to have been here today but they have an important game tomorrow and we can understand that,” he said after accepting the award from FIFA president Gianni Infantino.“I don’t have much more to say, I think the awards speak for themselves,” he added. “I’m very happy and I can say that 2016 was the best year of my career, the trophy shows that people aren’t blind and watch the games.”FIFA, which organised the award jointly with France Football magazine from 2010 to 2015 when it was named the Ballon d’Or, rebranded it as ‘The Best’ this year after splitting with the French publication.France Football continued with its own award which was also won by Ronaldo last month.The ceremony, previously held at the Kongresshaus theatre in central Zurich, this year took place in the much more modest setting of a television studio on an industrial estate near the airport.Ronaldo previously won in 2008, 2013, 2014 with Messi second on each occasion. Messi won from 2009-12 and then again in 2015 with Ronaldo second on every occasion except in 2010 when Andres Iniesta was runner-up.Ranieri said he was “crazy” after winning the coach’s award ahead of Fernando Santos, who led Portugal to the Euro 2016 title.“I am crazy now,” he said. “What happened last season in England was something strange; the football gods said Leicester must win.”Colombian side Atletico Nacional were given the Fair Play Award for conceding to Copa Sudamericana title to Brazilian side Chapecoense, whose team was decimated when a plane taking them to the final crashed, killing 71 people.“We did nothing more than what we had to do …. handing them this trophy as a gesture of hope,” said club president Juan Carlos de La Cuesta.American Carli Lloyd won the women’s player-of-the-year award for the second year in a row.Mohd Faiz Subri, of Malaysian Super League side Penang, won the goal-of-the-year award for a 35-metre free kick in which the ball dipped and swung in a bewildering fashion to leave the goalkeeper stranded.last_img read more

Rampant Walton, Ronchi put Amazon Warriors on verge of playoffs

Rampant Walton, Ronchi put Amazon Warriors on verge of playoffs

first_imgKINGSTON, Jamaica, (CMC) – Man-of-the-Match Chadwick Walton and New Zealander, Luke Ronchi, slammed scintillating half-centuries as a rampant Guyana Amazon Warriors crushed Jamaica Tallawahs by nine wickets to virtually secure a spot in the playoffs of the Caribbean Premier League.Chasing 150 for victory at Sabina Park on Friday night, the visitors stormed to their target off a mere 63 deliveries, with Walton ending unbeaten on 84 off 40 deliveries and Ronchi, 55 not out off 29 balls.The pair were utterly dominant, posting 135 for the second wicket – the highest partnership for any wicket in this year’s competitition – after Sohail Tanvir perished for a first-ball ‘duck’ off the sixth ball of the innings.Walton smashed eight fours and six sixes en route to his half-century off 26 deliveries while Ronchi’s landmark took one delivery longer, as he counted four fours and three sixes.Opting to bat first earlier, Tallawahs rallied to 149 for seven off their 20 overs with Andre McCarthy top-scoring with 44 and captain Kumar Sangakkara getting 38.Pakistan left-arm seamer Sohail Tanvir (2-27) and pacer Rayad Emrit (2-29) both finished with two wickets apiece.The victory was the fourth on the trot for Amazon Warriors and put them in pole position to claim the last playoff spot up for grabs. They lie fourth on 10 points, four points clear of nearest challenger Barbados Tridents in fifth.Amazon Warriors also possess a superior net run rate meaning that Tridents will have to win their final two matches, over Trinbago Knight Riders and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots by significant margins, in order to sneak into the top four.The Tallawahs slumped to 26 for two in the fifth over after Glenn Phillips (10) missed a pull and was bowled by left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul, and Lendl Simmons (15) clipped Emrit to Gajanand Singh at mid-wicket.McCarthy and Sri Lankan Sangakkara then came together in a 79-run, third wicket stand and pushed the total past the 100-run mark.While McCarthy faced 35 balls and struck four boundaries and three sixes, Sangakkara counted two fours and a six in a 31-ball knock.However, they both fell in the space of 15 balls for the addition of 15 runs and Tallawahs were left to scramble for runs at the end to reach a competitive total.In reply, the Amazon Warriors were in early trouble when Tanvir gloved a lifter from pacer Oshane Thomas through to wicketkeeper Sangakkara. However, that was to be the Tallawas only success as Walton and Ronchi then decimated their bowling attack.last_img read more

Split gives Badgers disappointing end to season in Minnesota

Split gives Badgers disappointing end to season in Minnesota

first_imgMadison native Craig Smith scored a pair of goals in the Badgers\’ thrilling 3-2 victory Friday night over the Gophers at the Target Center.[/media-credit]MINNEAPOLIS — To sum up the Badgers’ weekend in one word, “disappointing” works quite nicely.Given the chance to close out the regular season on a high note, the third-ranked Wisconsin men’s hockey team could only manage a split with rival Minnesota. After a 3-2 win Friday night, the Badgers were blown out Sunday 6-1 to close out a weird series.Sunday was Senior Day for Minnesota, and Gopher seniors Tony Lucia and Mike Carman scored two goals apiece in a game Minnesota seemed far more motivated for. The game was tied 1-1 midway through the second period, but then the wheels fell off for the Badgers.UW junior defenseman Ryan McDonagh tangled with Minnesota’s Ryan Flynn at 8:42, with both drawing matching roughing and 10-minute misconduct penalties. McDonagh also received a minor penalty for cross checking, giving Minnesota a power play.UW defenseman Justin Schultz later received an interference penalty with 16 seconds left on the McDonagh cross checking call. Lucia put the Gophers up 2-1 just 18 seconds later and things only got worse from there for the Badgers.“It was a funky, funky game for us today,” UW head coach Mike Eaves said. “As (UM head coach Don Lucia) Donny said as we shook hands, they had a little more to play for than we did.”Minnesota would finish 3-for-5 on the power play in the second period alone.UW’s Cody Goloubef was called for roughing at 11:35, allowing Jacob Cepis to score, and Brendan Smith’s unsportsmanlike conduct penalty less than two minutes later gave Lucia his second of the game and Minnesota a 4-1 lead.The loss of McDonagh, one of Wisconsin’s top defensive blue liners and penalty killers, only exacerbated the parade of penalties the Badgers took throughout the rest of the game.“When you go back-to-back that many [times], it just wears on the same guys that are killing penalties, and it takes us right off our game,” McDonagh said. “Doesn’t help when they’re putting them in the net either.”The Gophers finished the game 5-of-8 on the power play on nine shots.Wisconsin got opportunities to make its mark as well with the man advantage, but went scoreless in its six power plays.“They did a good job scouting us from last game and they really weren’t giving much,” senior Michael Davies said. “We still have to execute and make those plays.”Davies scored Wisconsin’s lone goal, which came at 8:04 of the second period. He took a pass from sophomore Derek Stepan, who found him in the right faceoff circle, and one-timed the puck, going top shelf with it to UM goaltender Alex Kangas’ glove side.UW goaltender Brett Bennett started Sunday for the first time since Feb. 13. Junior Scott Gudmandson had started UW’s previous five games in net, including Friday’s win.Bennett was victimized by the constant string of power plays for Minnesota, with the Gophers getting several chances to tuck away loose pucks or take uncontested shots.“It’s not his fault — I mean, 5-for-8, they got some backdoor goals,” tri-captain Blake Geoffrion said. “[We] took some dumb penalties, some selfish penalties — I took one there at the end.”Wisconsin faced a stiff challenge in Friday’s game at the Target Center, but managed to come out with a late win. In addition to the odd venue — Minnesota hadn’t played a game there since 2000 — the game featured lots of weird bounces and three disallowed goals, all of which were in UW’s favor.Fittingly, Madison native Craig Smith scored two goals, including the game-winner, to give UW the Border Battle victory.Following a Nick Larson tip-in goal, the Gophers had the game tied 2-2 just 2:36 into the third period. Wisconsin seemed to wake up a bit after allowing the goal, mounting some offensive pressure but finding no results.Finally, Geoffrion — in his first game back from injury — found Smith between the circles, where he ripped a wrist shot top shelf to Kangas’ glove side.“Blake threw in an area pass where one of us should have been,” Smith said. “I got to it, knocked it down and turned around and had a shot.”The goal kept Wisconsin unbeaten when leading after two periods of play (20-0-2) and ensured the Badgers wouldn’t let a game slip away to a hot Minnesota team. Conversely, UW also remained winless (0-8-2) when trailing after two periods after Sunday’s game.The loss isn’t particularly significant for Wisconsin from a few standpoints. The WCHA playoff pairings were settled by Saturday night. And with No. 4 St. Cloud State’s poor series against Minnesota State, the Badgers shouldn’t drop in the polls.UW will host Alaska Anchorage in the first round of the WCHA playoffs this Friday while Minnesota will go on the road to take on North Dakota.Despite the success Friday on special teams, where Wisconsin’s penalty kill unit successfully killed all six of Minnesota’s power plays and the power play went 2-for-5, Sunday’s game has the team a little concerned heading into the playoffs.“We’ve got a list of things; a lack of discipline, a lack of willingness to block shots, we didn’t execute very good in some of our specialty team areas and… you see the result on the scoreboard,” Eaves said.Asked if the loss could serve as motivation heading into the playoffs, McDonagh shot the notion down.“No, I don’t think so, especially against these guys,” McDonagh said. “I think the momentum we would have had if we were coming out with a win would have been way better than having a bitter loss, so to speak.”last_img read more

USC chefs compete in culinary challenge

USC chefs compete in culinary challenge

first_imgCarlo Avencena’s seared sake-marinated salmon with edamame flan, sweet and sour kale and crispy Bhutanese rice claimed first place in the fourth-annual USC Culinary Challenge Tuesday at the Radisson at USC. Avencena, Kitchen Manager of the Lab Gastropub, will face the winners of similar competitions from regional universities after outscoring other chefs employed by the University at the cooking battle hosted by USC Hospitality.The American Culinary Federation-sanctioned event is part of a broader collegiate movement to provide healthier and more nutritious food options to the students and faculty.The Challenge had two separate cooking competitions where six chefs were timed for an hour and a half to prepare and cook their dishes for three international master chefs flown in as judges. Though they could choose their center plate, the chefs were given mandatory ingredients to construct their dishes. The chefs were graded on a numerical scale, with points given for sanitation, organization, flavor, plating and cooking technique.The winners of the first competition were Olga Cordon and Yesina Duran from EVK with their version of cultivated mushroom cakes with rad na rice noodles and edamame sauce.The second competition was among the chefs on campus, who volunteered and brought their own recipes. Avencena, the winner of this culinary competition, will continue on to a regional competition, and then the winner of that will go on to the national competition hosted by the National Association of College & University Food Services.Erik Russell, associate director of residential dining, said that the competition is a way to change the perception of what USC Hospitality is trying to do with on-campus dining.“A lot of people think that we just serve frozen food on campus and that is not what we do. This is just a way to highlight and showcase what we are trying to do,” Russell said. “We are working toward more transparent, more local, sustainable, organic ingredients and really elevating the quality and flavor game.”The University provides chefs working at restaurants like Seeds, Morton Fig and Café 84 with educational opportunities to advance their culinary careers. These opportunities include monthly meetings with Executive Chef Eric Ernest and a certification program with the ACF to become a certified chef, according to Assistant Vice President of Auxiliary Services Kris Klinger. Klinger attests that teaching Hospitality’s chefs this thoroughly is important to improving the quality of dining hall cuisine.“We want our chefs to be globally trained, ready and built to explore flavor combinations and classical cooking techniques for sustainable futures and healthy and nutritional food options,” Klinger said. “If we consume ourselves with learning about what is fresh and what is quality, and we develop under that, then that is what we are going to have in mind when we are making our next menu.”Although this schooling gives the chefs a strong foundation to work with, Ernest was excited about how the competition challenged Hospitality’s chefs.“Schooling gives you a baseline of skills, and then this is us being able to explore certain ingredients,” Ernest said. “But this competition challenges us to take it to the next level, and maybe we make an edamame foam or maybe we flavor that foam with something that matches the flavor of our dish. That is what is exciting for our chefs.”Editor’s Note: This post has been updated to correct the spelling of Executive Chef Eric Ernest’s name. The Daily Trojan regrets the error.last_img read more

Water polo prepares defense to face 49ers

Water polo prepares defense to face 49ers

first_img“Our priority is defense,” Pintaric said. “We lost our first game against Santa Barbara because we played poor defense. [We] allowed too many goals overall in the first official four games of the season because of poor defense. So our maximum effort will be to tighten up those issues that showed, and I’m looking forward to [seeing] how the guys will respond to that.” “I believe nothing is changing honestly,” Dasic said. “It is flattering and shows the work that I’ve put in, but I honestly think nothing should change, and I should just keep going and focus on the games, focus on the next win.” After USC broke its 55-game winning streak over No. 2 UC Santa Barbara in a 13-9 loss Sunday, head coach Marko Pintaric stressed the program’s need to refocus on its next ranked opponent. “We know what to focus on, what we should improve on, and definitely our defense,” Dasic said. “On offense, we kind of executed what we were supposed to, and we scored nine goals [against Santa Barbara], which is also good.” Last season’s two wins against Long Beach State came at the end of the season, when the Trojans were able to best the 49ers’ combined 14 points with their total of 27. But with a rare upset loss against Santa Barbara in the back of the players’ minds, the team is taking this opportunity to address its weaknesses.   Long Beach State also participated in the Inland Empire Classic, posting three wins against Whittier College, Concordia University and Air Force as well as one loss against No. 8 Pepperdine University to improve its overall record to 6-2.  The 49ers’ scoring drives are something to keep an eye on, as they have eight players boasting a shot percentage at or above 0.700. Sophomore utilities Matt Morris and Garrett Zaan both collected 7 goals in the tournament, while redshirt senior attacker Austin Stewart racked up an impressive 15 scores. Their performance has not gone unnoticed by USC. Following its 3-1 run at the Inland Empire Classic this past weekend, the No. 5 USC men’s water polo team will look to improve its defensive effort in its first home game of the season against No. 9 Long Beach State Thursday. The Trojans are also expected to continue as an offensive powerhouse after strong appearances last weekend from sophomore two-meter Jake Ehrhardt, junior driver Jacob Mercep and senior driver Marin Dasic. With 26 goals total from the three players across the first four tournament games of the season, it is unlikely that their scoring effort will slow down Thursday. Dasic hit a career milestone by passing the 100 goal mark during the Inland Empire Classic. “We take every game as a test to correct our mistakes and to get the team better,” Pintaric said. “Every game is super serious, as if it’s the most important game of the season.” Dasic also said that while the priority is defense, the team continues to work fiercely on the offensive side in order to outscore Long Beach State’s high-scoring attack. USC will rely on a strong group of goalies to counter the offensive firepower of Long Beach State. Junior Vaios Vlahotasios had an impressive first tournament with 21 saves, while sophomore Nic Porter had eight saves and sophomore Jere Ashby had nine saves in his first appearance as a Trojan. “[We spent] a day and a half watching films, watching to analyze our play over the weekend, to show the good and bad stuff that we did, so we can fix our problems,” Pintaric said. “And [we watched] what Long Beach [State] did the last couple of weeks, so we can make an adjustment and play the best game possible on Thursday.” Sophomore goalie Nic Porter reaches out to defend a shot. Porter was a three-time Newcomer of the Week during his freshman season. (Daily Trojan file photo) USC’s first home game of the season against the Beach begins 5 p.m. Thursday at Uytengsu Aquatics Center.last_img read more
