Chevrolet Performance renews lucrative cash bonus program with IMCA through 2019

first_imgGRAND BLANC, Mich. – Chevrolet Performance has renewed a lucrative cash bonus program rewarding IMCA drivers and sanctioned tracks through the 2017-2019 race seasons.Drivers winning track championships while competing exclusively with 602 or 604 crate engines receive a $250 bonus. Tracks sanctioning any combination of the Modified, Hobby Stock and SportMod divisions and displaying Chevrolet Performance banners become eligible for cash bo­nuses of their own.“This is a program that paid cash back to our drivers and sanctioned tracks to the tune of $75,000 last year. It is easily our biggest cash bonus program for drivers,” emphasized IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder. “This is a big deal. A lot of money will get paid directly to drivers and tracks that support IMCA and Chevrolet Performance.”Driver bonuses will be paid after point standings become official; track bonuses will be paid through­out the season.The Chevrolet Performance IMCA crate engine bonus program originated in 2005 with cash awards to eligible Northern SportMod drivers finishing in the top five in track standings.It expanded to include Modified, Hobby Stock and Southern SportMod divisions and began paying track championship bonuses in 2010.One hundred and twenty-one drivers earned Chevrolet Performance bonuses last year. The pro­gram has seen more than $200,000 paid to IMCA drivers in its first 12 seasons.“It’s important to note that four of Chevrolet’s biggest dealerships in the United States are IMCA sponsors,” Yoder said. “I would encourage our member drivers to return the support of Karl Chevro­let, Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center, Friesen Performance and Kupper Chevrolet when they have the opportunity to do so.”Information about the Chevrolet Performance bonus program is available from Yoder at the IMCA home office, 319 472-2201.last_img read more

Mark Hughes happy to see Stoke in contention at the right end of Premier League

first_img Hughes’ side face league leaders Arsenal at the Britannia Stadium on Sunday currently occupying seventh spot and they are only four points off Tottenham, who sit in the final qualifying berth for a place in next year’s Champions League. With Leicester, West Ham and Crystal Palace all also in touching distance of one of those four spots, England could be represented by a surprise team in Europe’s premier competition next season. Press Association The unpredictable nature of this year’s Barclays Premier League means Mark Hughes is adjusting Stoke’s targets this season, with a top-four finish now not out of the question. “The squad is strong, we’ve proved over the last couple of years that the depth that we have should be able to maintain us. It certainly did last year and it’s looking like it will again this year. “If we’re going to improve then we need to get those players that can make a difference. It’s key players who can make a difference, those are the ones we’re looking for.” Switzerland international Shaqiri will not face Arsene Wenger’s Gunners after suffering a hamstring injury while Geoff Cameron is highly unlikely to return because of an ankle problem. And while such a feat seemed improbable before the start of the campaign, Hughes is beginning to think a historic season might be possible for Stoke. “It wasn’t what we were aiming for at the beginning of the season but, as the season progresses and the league takes shape, your realistic targets change,” the Welshman said when asked if a top-four finish was achievable. “It’s fair to say we’ve changed our targets in terms of what we think we can achieve this year. I’m not necessarily saying we’re going for the Champions League at all, but you never know? It’s one of those seasons. We could get to a point in March, April where we’re very much in the mix and we’ll have a go. “For our part, we’re really pleased where we find ourselves at the moment, it’s higher than we anticipated before the beginning of the season. “At the end of the season we hope we can look back and pat ourselves on the back by virtue of the fact we’ve beaten our previous total over the last two seasons. If we do that, it’s fair to say we’re progressing.” The Potters are yet to wade into the January transfer window and Hughes is happy with the strength of a squad that is still competing in both the FA Cup and Capital One Cup. That is why if he does make an acquisition to bolster a Champions League charge this month, it will likely be a marquee name to rival the likes of previous recruits Bojan Krkic and Xherdan Shaqiri. “I think it’s fair to say that,” Hughes noted. last_img read more

Ten teams confirmed for Elite League 2016-17

first_imgBy Ras WadadaTHE Guyana Football Federation (GFF) last Friday evening confirmed that two teams will be added to the revised Elite League, the country’s top tier club football competition.The decision to include Upper Demerara’s Top XX and Victoria Kings of East Coast,in the 2nd staging of the Elite League was agreed upon at a lengthy and intense meeting, among the GFF, the original 8 Elite teams and the two newcomers, held at the Federation’s Boardroom.The key fundamental change to this year’s competition is that the Champion will be decided from the two rounds of games and not from a play-off final, as was the case in last season’s inaugural Tournament.The team accumulating the most points at the end of the tournament will be declared the winner. Each team will play a quota of nine games in each of the two rounds of competition where 3 points will be awarded for a win and one for a draw.The increase to ten teams will give fans some additional games for the upcoming season and more importantly, return top flight football to a much starved Linden Community.There is the general belief among stakeholders of the ‘Beautiful Game’ that the move by the GFF to revise the league is a positive one for the development of the sport, in particular the deserved inclusion of a team from the Bauxite Mining Town,where there is a great passion for football and where talent is abundant.One thing for sure is that the financial burden of running the competition will be reduced for the GFF,with increased funding from FIFA and a possible G$20M contribution from Government, as well as Corporate Guyana’s input;the upcoming season promises lots of excitment.However,there is no word forthcoming from the GFF with regards to sponsorship for the League in the new season, or outstanding payments to players from last season.According to a reliable source, a number of issues and proposals were discussed in depth at last Friday night’s meeting, but no date was set for the kick-off of the new season.It is believed that the GFF will study the proposals made by the Elite clubs and work feverishly to pay outstanding cash owed to clubs from the last season,before a date is set for the kick-off of the new season.last_img read more

The Court of Arbitration for Sport has struck down similar national selection rules before if it deems they impose extra punishments on athletes who have served their doping bans. CAS overturned a British Olympic Association rule in 2012 that athletes previously banned for doping could not be selected for the Olympic team.The rules come as the Russian federation’s new management tries to mend its relationship with World Athletics. Russia has been suspended from international track competitions since 2015 for widespread doping. The league adds “it remains understood that the clubs will define the agreements directly with their members.”Serie A has been suspended since the government ordered a nationwide lockdown nearly a month ago.

FIFA does not set the dates of domestic or continental club competitions but does oversee the implementation of two transfer windows during the year.A FIFA task force has been exploring the impact of the coronavirus pandemic and has backed flexibility in shifting the transfer windows and extending player contracts to allow seasons to be completed.A final decision will be made by the FIFA Bureau. That body includes the presidents of the six regional confederations.UEFA has already determined that competitions in Europe can run beyond the June 30 cut-off for player contracts.Cost-cutting is underway at many clubs and federations to deal with the financial impact of games not being played. The prizes include joining Beane on the phone when the GM submits Buffalo’s first draft pick. Other prizes include a one-on-one Zoom interview with Beane, lunch with the GM, four tickets to Buffalo’s home opener, and a jersey autographed by quarterback Josh Allen.Proceeds will go to the community response fund. The fund aids area food banks and provides resources to health care providers and front-line responders.Beane praised the work being done by doctors, nurses, pharmacists, grocery-store workers and others for putting their health at risk to serve the community.___Dutch national team players, the country’s national soccer association and the sport’s main sponsor will contribute to an 11 million euro ($12 million) fund to support clubs in the Netherlands during the coronavirus pandemic.

Syracuse football opponent preview: What to know about Pittsburgh

first_img Published on October 5, 2017 at 8:06 pm Contact: | @jtbloss Syracuse (2-3, 0-1 Atlantic Coast) returns for the first of two-straight home games with a 12:30 p.m. Saturday kickoff against Pittsburgh (2-3, 0-1 ACC). The Orange has lost four straight matchups with the Panthers, who are coming off a 42-10 win over Rice. A loss would deal a crushing blow to SU’s already hurting bowl chances.Here’s what you need to know about the Panthers.All-time series: Pitt leads, 38-31-3.Last time they played: SU traveled to Heinz Field last year for its season finale and scored 61 points in a loss. An injury-depleted defense allowed Pitt to gash SU for nearly 400 yards rushing and just nine receptions while the Panthers put up 76 points in the highest scoring game in FBS history. There were 20 touchdowns scored and 1,312 yards of combined offense. Zack Mahoney filled in for Eric Dungey at quarterback and threw 61 passes. He completed 43 for 440 yards and five touchdowns, all of which went to former SU wide receiver Amba Etta-Tawo.The Pittsburgh report: Pitt is unranked and enters the matchup with a record identical to Syracuse. Its losses have all come against good teams: No. 4 Penn State, No. 15 Oklahoma State and Georgia Tech, which sits atop the ACC’s coastal division.Last year, Pitt took on Northwestern in the Pinstripe Bowl and lost, 31-24, to finish 2016 at 8-5. A bowl appearance this season would make for 10 straight seasons with a postseason appearance for the Panthers.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut, this year’s team has significant turnover from the team that dropped 76 on SU. At quarterback, the Panthers send out Southern California transfer Max Browne. He started the first three games of 2016 for the Trojans before being overtaken by now-Heisman candidate Sam Darnold. Browne moved to Pitt before spring practice with immediate eligibility.In five games, Browne has struggled to hold his starting spot. He failed to throw a touchdown in all three of Pitt’s losses, and Redshirt Sophomore Ben DiNucci replaced him in each game. Browne did have a nice week against Rice’s 122nd ranked passing defense, posting 410 yards and 4 touchdowns while completing 28-of-32 passes.Beyond that, Pitt’s offense doesn’t boast the type of dynamic playmakers SU has seen in recent weeks. Qadree Ollison leads the team with 221 rushing yards and averages 3.9 yards per carry. Eleven Panthers have caught a pass so far, but none have hauled in more than 20 total.Defensively, the Panthers don’t rank well in pass coverage (107th) or stopping the run (85th). A year after amassing 61 points, SU should be poised for another high-scoring day.How Syracuse beats Pitt: It’d be disappointing to see SU allow more than a few scores here considering Pitt’s early offensive struggles. If the Orange is able to keep Pitt under 30 points and avoid a shootout, it’s hard not to like SU’s chances.On the other side of the ball, Eric Dungey and company have to do what they do best: throw the football. Running the ball, as of now, is not something that will work out consistently. So unless SU is able to establish a ground game on its first couple of possessions, let Dungey sit back in the pocket and find the nation’s leading pass catchers in Steve Ishmael (51 receptions) and Ervin Philips (44).Player to watch: Quadree Henderson, wide receiver, No. 10Henderson, a 5-foot-8 junior from Wilmington, Delaware, leads Pitt with 680 all-purpose yards. He topped all of FBS in kick return yards last season and took a kickoff to the house three times on his way to being named a first team All-American. Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi said on the ACC teleconference that this could be the week Henderson gets more involved in the offense, particularly as a deep threat. And considering big plays have been SU’s weak point several times this season, Henderson is worth keeping an eye on. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Holness wants meeting with Opposition Leader ahead of SOE expiration in…

first_imgKINGSTON, Jamaica,– Prime Minister Andrew Holness is seeking a meeting with Opposition Leader Dr. Peter Phillips ahead of the expiration of states of emergency (SOE) in three separate regions in Jamaica. Holness is insisting there should be a united front in dealing with the crime situation in Jamaica.Last week, the government failed to get support for its efforts to extend the SOE in place since January 2017. Opposition legislators voted against the measure which Holness said was necessary to curtail crime and violence across the island.Since the vote, there have been calls for the two leaders to meet to discuss the way forward and the private sector has led in holding discussions with the leadership of the ruling Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) and the People’s National Party (PNP) that maintains its position on the matter.In a December 18 letter to Phillips, Prime Minister Holness wrote  he wanted the meeting to take place “before the expiration of the enhanced security measures to discuss your position and identify solutions that could help us to see our way to reaching consensus in support of the extension of the States of Public Emergency as recommended by the Chief of Defense Staff and the Commissioner of Police”.The SOE had been imposed in the parish of St. James, Kingston Western, Kingston Central and St Andrew South and St. Catherine North. All three SOE are due to expire in January.Holness told legislators last week of positive results from the SOE. These included a 20 per cent reduction in murders island wide, and in some areas like Montego Bay, a 70 per cent reduction.“We need more time,” Holness said, making reference to letters from the heads of the security forces requesting a 90-day extension.In his letter, Prime Minister Holness also wrote that he has held discussions with various stakeholders and “the overwhelming position expressed is that the Government and Opposition should be united in the fight against crime.“The sector representatives, as well as the general public, hold the view that Parliament should continue its support for the use of emergency powers to contain and control criminal activity that is beyond the capacity of normal law enforcement measures.“I am concerned that once again Jamaica will be denied the opportunity to bring crime under control, and the current political disunity will only embolden criminals,” Holness wrote.He said that in the “spirit of unity” he was seeking the meeting with Phillips to discuss the situation.last_img read more
