Chase Elliott exits early after mechanical issue at Sonoma

first_imgChase Elliott’s hopes for a Sonoma Raceway victory hit a final-stage snag Sunday as his Hendrick Motorsports No. 9 Chevrolet lost power and went behind the wall for diagnosis.Elliott had led three laps and was scored in third place behind race leader Martin Truex Jr. on Lap 60 of the 90-lap race, when he reported “blew up, blew up” as he coasted down pit road. His No. 9 crew raised the hood and performed some cursory checks before pushing the car to the garage, out of the race for good.RELATED: Full race results“I don’t know. I don’t think I missed any shifts or anything,” Elliott told his team on the radio, saying that the car had not shown any abnormal signs before its mechanical issue. Bill Elliott, his Hall of Fame father, was on spotter duty for the team this weekend and reported that the car had misfired on the final time past his location.“We lost oil pressure but there is no oil leaking, so it must have been a belt, I guess,” Elliott said later. “And obviously when that happens, you’re not getting oil so things are going to not work when they’re not being loosened up and have oil to work with. I’ve been with Hendrick Motorsports for a number of years now running their engines, and I think this is the second time we ever broke one. So, I’ll take those odds all day long.”Eight laps after Elliott pulled off the track, the team informed primary spotter Eddie D’Hondt that the No. 9 was done for the day in the Toyota/Save Mart 350. Elliott had finished in the top 10 in the past two Sonoma races, but was 37th Sunday, losing ground in the standings as a result.Elliott has virtually clinched a spot in the 16-driver playoff field with his victory in April at Talladega Superspeedway.last_img read more

Moore backing his charges to pull off second `Three-Peat’

first_imgGuyana Under – 19 Coach Julian Moore is almost certain that the five-time defending champions in the one – day version of Cricket West Indies  regional U19 championships can record its sixth consecutive regional under – 19 one day title.   “By nature, I’m a confident person so I’ll be confident regardless, but to be honest we have a very good chance.  “We have experience and the talent… there were encouraging signs during the under – 19 Inter-County-tournament so we are very upbeat about the tournament and what’s to come,” Moore, who enjoyed success with the team in 2017 and 2018 said.  Commenting on the expanse of talent in the squad of 18, Moore explained that beyond their natural talent, the shortlisted players are quite experienced, having been around for quite some time.  “The talent is tremendous; most of the guys have been around the scene from the under – 15s and have been performing pretty consistently since that age group.   “One of the things for us is that we have nine fellas back from last year which brings a lot of experience and continuity to what we are trying to achieve this year,” he declared. Guyana’s quest for their sixth title will commence on July 25 in St. Vincent and the Grenadines when the 2019 CWI Championships gets underway. Berbician Moore along with the side’s manager Andy Ramnarine has, in the past, been credited for their man-management acumen which has boosted Guyana’s championship run.   In 2019, those qualities will have to once again come to the fore to settle any dressing room nerves while creating an environment to continue Guyana’s historic run.   There is also an added distraction or incentive, depending on the mental effect it has on the players, the consideration that the 2019 edition of the championship will be used to select the West Indies Under-19 squad to contest the 2020 ICC World Cup in South Africa. Moore explained that the management is addressing the potential hindrance. “There is a conversation about it (World Cup selection) but it’s up to us (Management) to not make it the main focus. We are just reinforcing that, them doing well will not only help us to win but it also gives them a chance to move forward in the West Indies set-up,” Moore said.   Asked to point out who are some of the players he thinks would carry Guyana’s championship run, Moore advanced that ‘skipper’ Ashmead Nedd, who has Under – 19 World Cup experience, Sachin Singh, Qumar Torrington and Kevlon Anderson are the players he expects to provide leadership on and off the park.  The 18 shortlisted players are currently encamped at the Chetram Singh Centre of Excellence hostel and indoor facility.  They will be involved in two practice matches and a number of fitness exercises before departing Guyana.List to 18 players selected reads:  Ashmead Nedd (Returning from 2018), KevlonAnderson (Returning from 2018), Alex Algoo (Returning from 2018), Adrian Hinds (Returning from 2018), Yeudistir Persaud (Returning from 2018), Kelvin Umroa  (Returning from 2018), Qumar Torrington (Returning from 2018), Sachin Singh (Returning from 2018), Junior Sinclair (Returning from 2018), Dequan Bamfield, AlphiusBookie, Daniel Mootoo, Garfield Benjamin, Nigel Deodat, Robin Williams, Seon Glasgow, Joel Spooner, Leon Swamylast_img read more
