first_imgBy Edward AnschutzSTURGEON BAY, Wis. (July 12) – Jamie Suchocki outlasted Jeremy Anschutz to score his first IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature win of the season Sunday at Thunderhill Raceway.Rookie Kevin Luedtke led from the drop of the green in the Stock Car headliner until Jeremy An­schutz maneuvered by. Anschutz then pulled away using the high line. A three-wide battle for third got physical as Billy LeMieux, Dave Bouche and Dylan Heilmann raced for the same real estate, resulting in a caution and a flat tire for Heilmann on lap four.On the restart, Anschutz went right back to his groove but this time he had company as Suchocki hugged the tires down low, pulling even with the leader. The duo raced door-to-door until the mid­way point with Suchocki winning that battle.LeMieux made a late-race charge to the back bumper of Suchocki but it was too little too late as Suchocki took home the trophy. LeMieux had to settle for second.Other feature winners were Greg Gretz in the Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modifieds, Josh Lam­bert in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods and Marcus Moede in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks.last_img read more

Schmidt arrival to inspire Ireland

first_imgIreland prop Dave Kilcoyne believes that the chance to impress new coach Joe Schmidt will drive the tourists to success in North America. The New Zealander will arrive in Houston on Friday ahead of Saturday’s Test against the US Eagles having spent time in camp with the squad last week in Kildare. He will take a more hands on role next week in Toronto and Kilcoyne believes his presence will lift the squad. The Munster loosehead’s personal goal is to wrest the Ireland No1 jersey from Lion Cian Healy in the Leinster man’s absence as he looks to end a remarkable season on a high. “Look, it is a clean slate for everyone,” he said at the team base in Texas. “Joe coming in is great, if you look at his record for Leinster he has done great and let’s hope he can do the same for Irish rugby. “With a new coach coming in, lads are looking to impress. From what the lads have been telling me, Joe is manic into his work-rate and has huge background information done on all players so I’d say he has huge knowledge of what to expect. It is a big opportunity for people coming through. “We have two big games coming up with America and Canada. I am putting my best foot forward to make sure I put down a good marker to ensure I can get that No1 jersey going forward. It is a huge test, a huge chance for me and I’m relishing it.” Ireland’s 29-man touring squad includes seven new caps and, with 10 senior players touring with the Lions and the likes of Eoin Reddan, Gordon D’Arcy, Keith Earls and Donnacha Ryan not travelling there is a lack of experience, but Kilcoyne sees it as a positive. “From the Six Nations and November you have a lot of new faces, but that is down to the strength in depth of Irish rugby,” he said. “Look, the more competition for places brings out the best in players. There is a lot of competition for places but you have to back yourself in these situations.” The main barrier to impressing this week will be the Texan heat. It was already 26 degrees and 77% humidity in Houston when the players underwent their first full training session in the US. “Look, the humidity is more of an issue than the heat,” Kilcoyne said. “We’ve air-con in all of the rooms and the hotel and the big thing is to make sure that you’re hydrating when training. We’re adjusting well so far anyway.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Sole powers up for Nunthorpe

first_img Mike de Kock’s globetrotter Shea Shea, winner of the Al Quoz Sprint at Meydan in March, will bid to open his British Group One account under Frankie Dettori after taking second and fourth places respectively in the King’s Stand and July Cup. As expected, James Fanshawe has taken out Society Rock, who was second in the Newmarket six-furlong Group One and will be aimed at a repeat victory the Betfred Sprint Cup at Haydock next month. Spirit Quartz, second to Ortensia 12 months ago, tries again, while his trainer Robert Cowell can also call on Kingsgate Native, winner of this race in 2007 for Sir Michael Stoute, as well as Jwala. Leading the Yorkshire charge in the five-furlong dash is the Bryan Smart-trained Moviesta, who booked his place with a convincing victory in the King George Stakes at Glorious Goodwood. Other possibles in a quality field are Swiss Spirit, Tickled Pink, Jack Dexter and Heeraat. There is one supplementary entry at a cost of £25,000 in the Reg Bond-owned and Geoff Oldroyd-trained Ladies Are Forever. The five-year-old mare, a dual Group Three course winner over six furlongs, finished fifth to Moviesta at Goodwood. Oldroyd said: “She’s on top of her game and she’s in a good nick. She ran a big race at Goodwood in the King George and was a bit unlucky not to be in the first three. “It would be nice to win for Reg Bond on his home ground with a horse he bred himself. She’s in great form and if she’s ever going to win one it’s going to be this year. That’s why we’ve done it. “Hopefully this heatwave will come and one or two might not go. She was finishing like a train at Goodwood and this five furlongs will suit her better. I think she goes there with a chance.” Press Association Eddie Lynam’s star, who lifted the King’s Stand at Royal Ascot this season, landed the Knavesmire prize at odds of 100-1 in 2010. The trainer also provides the only other Irish-trained possible in Slade Power. The four-year-old finished ahead of his stablemate when third in the July Cup and has since gone on to win the Phoenix Sprint Stakes at the Curragh. center_img Sole Power will attempt to win the Coolmore Nunthorpe Stakes for a second time after featuring among 27 confirmations for the Group One sprint at York next Friday.last_img read more
