Racing Pro Motocross Leader Board Shaken Up As Blake Baggett Wins in High Point Share Tweet Published 7 months ago on June 17, 2017 By Justin Doyle Baggett Wins 2 In A Row Pro Motocross made a stop in High point this weekend for a stop on the East Coast. Baggett looked to continue his wining streak and Osborne looked to keep the red plate 450 class: Blake Baggett came into today having won his first overall of the season two weeks ago in Thunder Valley. Earlier this week he had some smack talk to Eli Tomac saying that he is here to take the money from Tomac and that he does not care what his father did. Eli Tomac’s father is a famous cyclist. Now to the race, Tomac who has been struggling of late continued to struggle as he went down early in moto 1. Bagget was able to take advantage and grab the moto win. Also points leader Marvin Musquin was struggling with a knee injury with a torn meniscus he suffered in practice. Then in moto 2 it was Tomac who was able to get a good start and ended up behind Jason Anderson and Broc Tickle. Eventually Tomac was able to catch up to Anderson. Anderson made a mistake and Tomac capitalized and made the pass. Even though Tomac won moto 2 Bagget still took the overall with his second place finish in moto 2. 450 Results: Overall 450 Results. pic.twitter.com/NODgfmXPhe — Pro Motocross (@ProMotocross) June 17, 2017 250 Class: Zach Osborne continued his dominance and grabbed the moto 1 win while Jeremy Martin finished 7 seconds back for second. Osborne came into today with the red plate he he was trying to make sure that it stayed that way. Then in the moto 2 Osborne did not get a great start while J. Martin did. J. Martin was able to mount a decent lead and so it was a battle for second. Plessinger and Alex Martin were battling for that spot then Osborne was able to catch up to them. Osborne was able to make a pass on Plessinger and set his sights on A. Martin. Osborne made a great pass on Martin then decided to try to ditch the goggles, when they got caught on his visor. He tried to remove them a few times and was able to finally get them off. By this time Martin tried to make the pass back but Osborne shut the door and was able to hold on to second place. This would give J. Martin the Overall as he went 2-1 and moto 2 holds more weight than the first. 250 Results: 1. Jeremy Martin (2-1) 2. Zach Osborne (1-2) 3. Aaron Plessinger (3-3) 4.

A bizarre accident caused by an ambulance nearly cost Matt Kenseth a spot in the 16-driver NASCAR playoff field . The night was over for Kenseth, but thanks to a victory by Kyle Larson in Saturday Night’s regular-season finale at Richmond, Matt Kenseth claimed his spot. The playoffs begin next weekend at . The playoffs begin next weekend at Chicagoland Speedway. If a driver in a must-win situation had won the race, Kenseth would not have made the playoffs. There would have been only two spots remaining and There would have been only two spots remaining and Kenseth would have been third in points among the winless drivers in the regular season. With 143 laps remaining, a caution came out and Matt Kenseth went to pit road. An Ambulance, however, had stopped at the entrance to pit road, and in the chaos of drivers trying to weave around the ambulance, Matt Kenseth ran into the back of Clint Bowyer. Kenseth was in good position to make the playoffs on points if he didn’t win after leading 89 laps of the first half of the race. “Kind of a weird series of events there,”. “It didn’t turn out good for us. … Yeah, I was surprised [to see it].”, Kenseth Said. Dale Earnhardt Jr finished 13th and ran like a playoff driver most of the night. But it wasn’t enough to secure a playoff spot Earnhardt needed a win after a winless season and ranking 22nd in the point standings. Earnhart Jr has already announced his retirement from full time racing back in April. “I’m disappointed,”. “We had some odd luck [this year]. But when we didn’t have bad luck, we didn’t capitalize. We had a long summer. “We just didn’t capitalize. We didn’t run like we should have. We ran like we should have tonight. If we had ran like that all year, like we did over the last several years, we would have made it. But we didn’t.” Martin Truex Jr. has a 20-point lead on Kyle Larson in the NASCAR Cup standings thanks to the playoff points he earned throughout the season. Truex has 2,053 points, followed by Larson (2,033), Kyle Busch (2,029), Brad Keselowski (2,019) and Jimmie Johnson (2,017) in the top-five following the reset. With drivers who don’t win in the three-race playoff rounds advancing by points (the four winless drivers worst in points don’t advance), Truex is all but guaranteed a spot in at least the semifinal round. Continue Reading Racing Another Penalty For Kyle Busch Published 5 months ago on August 17, 2017 By David Archer Another Penalty For Kyle Busch It seems that winning isn’t the only think Kyle Busch is good at. The NASCAR driver is also good at being penalized. Last week it was at Watkins Glen where Busch was found to have a loose lug nut during the post race inspection by NASCAR officials. This week Busch was penalized yet again for a speeding violation on pit road. The penalty came at Bristol in the Camping World Truck Series. Kyle Busch was the pole sitter and won the first two stages. After the speeding violation dropped him to the back of the lead lap, Busch took to the high side and regained the lead half-way through the race to claim his 178th victory in NASCAR’s top three series. “I knew once we got that penalty that I had to go somewhere other than where everyone else was,” Busch said about charging to front on the outside. “It took about 15 laps for it to come in and then it started going fast.” Busch then easily held off Matt Crafton in a green-white-checker finish for his third Truck victory of the season and 49th overall. Busch also has 39 Cup victories and 90 Xfinity wins. He raced to his fifth Truck victory at the track and 18th overall Bristol win. Apparently being penalized either during or after a race is a winning strategy for Kyle Busch. Crafton was second in another Toyota. “We have nothing to hang our head about,” Crafton said. John Hunter Nemechek was third in a Chevrolet, followed by Grant Enfinger, Ben Rhodes, Johnny Sauter, points leader Christopher Bell, Park Kligerman, Austin Cindric and Brandon Jones.

The Drama at Watkins Glen Published 5 months ago on August 7, 2017 By David Archer NASCAR: Feud Continues As Truex JR Wins Drama at the Glen The drama never stops for these two drivers and the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series’ I Love New York 355 had plenty of drama to go around. Kyle Busch was heard using a few choice curse words for Brad Keselowski at the race on Sunday at Watkins Glen. Brad spun out pole sitter Kyle Busch in Stage 1. Brad Keselowski took the lead from Martin Truex Jr but fuel played its role before the green flag dropped and Truex Jr got his first career victory at Watkins Glen. Truex Jr now has four victories on the season. He leads the playoff standings by 18 points over second-place driver Jimmie Johnson, and the overall series lead by 116 points over Busch. Danica Patrick spun out on a late restart and Dale Earnhardt Jr was out due to engine trouble. This was Earnhardt Jr’s last trip to the Glen. He retires after this season. Keselowski took the lead from Martin Truex Jr late in the race and then ran out of fuel. Ryan Blaney then had the lead and he ran out of fuel. Martin Truex Jr, who hit pit road late in the day for gas, had a tight finish fighting off Matt Kenseth for the trip to victory lane. I’m kind of speechless. I really didn’t think it was going to play out there,” Truex told NBCSN afterward, in reference to the fuel-conservation strategy. Crew chief Cole Pearn assured Truex Jr. via the radio both those cars would have to pit for fuel. Truex Jr, on the other hand, could make it to the end if he was careful. “It was so stressful to let guys go by for the lead. I’ve never had to do that before… You’ve just got to listen to your crew chief,” Truex Jr said. Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series I LOVE NEW YORK 355 at Watkins Glen results 1. Martin Truex Jr. 2.
