The 20-lap IMCA Modified main was the nightcap of the evening’s racing. Only four points separated Tim Ward and Joel Rust for the track title. Rust led all of those 20 laps on his way to the win. Ward trailed as distant runner-up. Ward is the 2019 track champion. A slight bobble in turn four nearly cost Meyer the win, but he regained control and flew under the checkers first. Damon Murty, who uncharacteristically lost control on lap 10 and went over the top of turn four, rejoined the field at the tail, and recovered to finish in second place. Jeff Wollam, whose late father was honored earlier, finished third. Steve Meyer was crowned the 2019 track champion in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car class. Meyer had a 22-point lead over Todd Reitzler going into the night. Meyer led the field to green and shot to the lead in the 18-lap main event. Reitzler gained the top spot on lap two and then set sail on a quest for the checkers. Leah Wroten had the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock track title wrapped up before the race began, leading by 40 points. It also appeared that she won the 15-lap feature race, but that was not the case. Wroten led all laps but when she got into Kaden Reynolds as they approached the checkers, spinning him out, she was penalized for the contact and the victory was awarded to Jacob Floyd. This was Floyd’s first time ever to win at the Marshalltown Speedway. Jake McBirnie kept his point lead in the Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod feature, winning the track crown and also added to his quest in the hunt for the national title in the division with a feature win. McBirnie spanked the field, leading all 18 laps and winning by more than half a lap. Reitzler’s vision of a victory evaporated on lap 12 when he found himself in spin mode, bringing out a yellow, and sending him to tag the field. This returned Meyer as captain of the ship which he held to the checkers. MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (Aug. 23) – It was the Larry Wollam Season Championship night on Friday at the Marshalltown Speedway where family, friends, and fans celebrated the man who was such an inspiration to the track and racing in general. It was the 20th anniversary of the passing of Wollam, who had been a racer, promoter, and big supporter of the speedway. By Joyce Eisele

It is known that the likes of Mahela Jayawardene, Tom Moody, and Jonty Rhoades have applied for their respective interest role.Former Indian cricketer Robin Singh also threw his hat in the ring for the high-profile head coach’s role. After applying for the position, he made a bold statement about Shastri and how the current Indian coach has fared under him in the knock-out stages of the tournaments, hosted by the ICC.“Under the current coach, India has lost in the semi-finals of two successive ODI World Cups, and in the last four stage of the World Twenty20 championship as well,” the 55-year-old Singh was quoted as saying in Times Now.Singh also talked about the importance of reading into the player’s thoughts and formulating tactics as per that. The veteran feels that it’s essential for a coach to put himself/herself in the player’s shoes in order to understand the game better.“You got to transport yourself mentally into the game, put yourself in situations that the team and the players face, be a part of the moves, get into the players’ mind. You can do this, only if you understand the game technically,” he added. highlights For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.
