About 50 people who returned to Texas from West African countries where the virus has killed thousands will remain under monitoring.last_img read more

Burg tops fan voting for IMCA fendered divisions

Posted On Sep 23 2020 by

first_imgADEL, Iowa – The number of votes left little doubt that Andrew Burg has quite a fan following. Burg’s IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock was the top choice in August balloting for the Sybesma Graphics IMCA Facebook Fan Favorite contest. As a result, the 13-year-veteran will receive a mini-hood from contest sponsor Sybesma Graphics. “I’ve always raced a Hobby Stock. I’ve spent my entire career in that division,” said Burg, who fin­ished fourth in points at Stuart, anticipates a similar finish at Boone and won a single feature at each track this season. “I like the cost of the class and being able to race with the best of the best. We race with a lot of the best drivers in the country every Saturday and Sunday of the season.” He shares a shop with Shannon Anderson, John Watson and Jamie Songer. “I started racing with my dad when I got out of the service. I bought a used car for the first season and we built a new one for the next year,” Burg said. “It’s gotten a little more stressful over the last two years but things have come to fruition more. I’ve made a lot of friendships and met a lot of people racing.” Burg’s 16-year-old son Keith does most of the work on his dad’s car at the track. He’ll start his own Hobby Stock career next season in one of Burg’s used rides. Jimmy Keenan, Watson and often Songer round out the crew. Sponsors include Supreme Lawn & Landscaping, Chix Gear Racewear, CG Customs and Tony Moro Power Coating and Blasting, all of Des Moines; Finishline Auto Body & Paint of Grimes; Zipp’s Photos and Zipp’s Pizza of Adair; Ruby’s Pub of Stuart; Hawkeye Auto Salvage of DeSoto; Krazy Kal’s of Atlantic; and Five1seven Designs of Laguna Park, Texas.last_img read more

Garry Monk will carry on fighting at Swansea

Posted On Sep 20 2020 by

first_img But Monk responded to the crushing 3-0 home defeat to Leicester by saying: “I have never thought I’ve had enough. “I have never quit anything in my life – I will fight as hard as I can because I want the club to do well and I want to bring success. “No-one knows the principles of the club more than myself and no-one will fight harder. That’s never in question. “It is extremely frustrating, and that is putting it nicely. I don’t know what more I can do. “I am trying to find all the ways to make it better and produce.” Monk said before the Leicester game that he felt his side had turned a corner following an improved performance in the 1-0 defeat at in-form Liverpool the previous weekend. But Swansea were soon a sorry sight as they were cut to ribbons by the league leaders, with Riyad Mahrez scoring the first two goals of his hat-trick inside the opening 22 minutes. Boos from home supporters greeted both the half-time and full-time whistle and Monk, tipped as a future England manager only a few short months ago, admitted the buck stopped with him. Beleaguered Swansea boss Garry Monk insists he will carry on fighting in his job, even though he admits he does not know what more he can do to stop the club’s slide down the Barclays Premier League. Press Association “We can talk about players or this or that but ultimately it is with me,” said Monk, 36, who has been at Swansea since joining as a player in 2004. “It is my responsibility for the results and performances. Simple as that. I pick the team, I train the team and try to do it to my best. “It is frustrating when you work hard with the players all week and see a really good attitude towards everything. “All week there was barely a day I can say there was a bad training session or they didn’t quite understand it. “Unfortunately, you go on that pitch and it doesn’t work out, and you wonder the reasons why. “Obviously confidence plays a big part in this type of run, but I think our mentality has to be stronger than ever.” Swansea’s solitary win since beating Manchester United at the end of August came at bottom club Aston Villa in late-October. In all, Swansea have taken only six points from the last 33 on offer and have now lost four of their last five games. “Of course I am worried,” Monk said. “It is not a good situation that we are in and people need to step up to the plate now. “It is a precarious situation where we are getting dragged close to the relegation places and we can’t afford to not be getting results for a sustained period. “That is very clear, but you have to trust yourself as any experienced coach will tell you. “It is not as if I have not been working on things to rectify it.” Time appears to be running out on Monk’s 22-month reign at the Liberty Stadium after a run of one win in 11 league games which has plunged Swansea from a top-four spot to being a single point above the relegation zone. Press Association Sport understands the Swansea board have grave concerns as to whether Monk can turn around the club’s fortunes and might make a change in the dug-out before Saturday’s daunting trip to Manchester City. last_img read more

Chelsea Still Keen on Osimhen’s Move to Stamford Bridge, in Contact…

Posted On Sep 17 2020 by

first_imgAccording to a recent report by French news outlet Le10Sport, Premier League giants Chelsea are said to have contacted Ligue 1 outfit LOSC Lille to discuss the potential summer transfer of Nigerian international striker Victor Osimhen. The report suggests that the French club have received multiple firm offers for the striker’s services and that Frank Lampard’s Chelsea are certainly among the clubs said to be interested in his signature.Contrary to rumours floating around which state that Chelsea are going to hold back on spending amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the report suggests that the reality of the situation is actually the opposite. It has been clarified that the Blues are still extremely eager to sign players in the summer and that they are in a good position regarding the Victor Osimhen signature. Despite the excellent relationship between the two clubs, the Ligue 1 side are said to believe that they can get more than the €80m they got for Pepe from Arsenal.The West London club started the campaign with three recognised strikers for Lampard to choose from. Despite the decent form displayed by Tammy Abraham, the position gradually became an area of concern for the staff and fans alike. For all the excellent work that Abraham did in the early part of the season, an unfortunate back injury forced the Englishman out of the side for quite a while. The gaffer’s alternate options for the role included Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi. The Belgian was given the opportunity to prove himself first. Although he did get a couple of decent goals along the way, the former Valencia man struggled to have any sort of meaningful impact on the pitch. Olivier Giroud was then brought into the team, and despite his advancing age, the Frenchman came good for the Blues when it mattered most. Although this could be perceived as a good thing, the fact remains that the Blues were uncertain with their striking options for the more than half of the league season, and that’s one mistake they don’t want to make again.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Bazalgette, who has been with The Jockey Club for over a decade, has recently been named as an independent non-executive director on the EFL Board, replacing his non-executive role at the London 2017 World Athletics and Para-Athletics Championships, where he was Senior Independent Non-Executive Director.He also holds the position of a Trustee of the Ragged School Museum and a Member of the NSPCC’s Sports Board.Simon Bazalgette, Group Chief Executive of The Jockey Club, commented on the announcement: “The Jockey Club is a fantastic, purpose-led organisation full of talented and experienced people, so this has been a really hard decision for me to make.“When appointed a little over ten years ago I agreed to do at least five years before going non-executive, but there’s always been plenty to do and great opportunities that have kept me fully engaged. On the back of our tenth set of record results, and with a great team in place, now seemed the right time to make my transition. I’ll be standing down as Group Chief Executive by the end of the year, but I do hope to stay involved in a non-executive or advisory role.“In my opinion, The Jockey Club is blessed with the best management team in British sport, supported by a strong Board and governance structure, and my executive colleagues and our hardworking teams have been instrumental to what’s been achieved across Jockey Club Racecourses, Jockey Club Estates, The National Stud and Racing Welfare in recent years, which I’m sure will go from strength-to-strength.”The announcement comes swiftly after the announcement of another successful financial performance from The Jockey Club, with reports of a £27.1m contribution to British Racing’s prize money in 2018. The results demonstrated a tenth consecutive year of commercial growth under Bazalgette’s leadership.The Jockey Club’s Board of Stewards will oversee the recruitment process, with advice being offered from talent advisory firm, SRI.Roger Weatherby, Senior Steward of The Jockey Club, added: “Simon Bazalgette has made an outstanding contribution to British Racing as The Jockey Club’s first ever Group Chief Executive.“He has played a pivotal role in major achievements for our sport, including revolutionising racing’s media rights value, vital Levy Reforms, nearly 100 days of free-to-air coverage with a dedicated major broadcaster in ITV; and most importantly the ability for The Jockey Club to make record contributions to prize money and investments in our facilities around the country on the back of strong commercial performance.“He has assembled a first-class executive team and we will now begin a process to ensure his successor builds on the very robust foundations that Simon has laid.“We are keen that The Jockey Club and Racing does not lose the significant knowledge and expertise that Simon has, and so we very much hope that he will continue to be involved in some way into the future.”last_img read more
