#1 xperience for both our team and by jinshuiqian0713 09.10.2019 06:38

LOUDON, N.H. -- Brad Keselowski will start the second race in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship the way he ended the first one -- out front. Keselowski turned a track-record lap of 140.598 mph Friday to win the pole at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Keselowski is coming off consecutive victories at Richmond and the Chase for the Sprint Cup opener last week at Chicagoland. He swept the Cup and Nationwide races at New Hampshire in July. The Team Penske driver has five poles this season and leads the series with five victories. He has eight poles in 189 career Sprint Cup starts. "This kind of track is kind of right in my wheelhouse, right in our teams wheelhouse," Keselowski said. "We had this race circled before the Chase started and we felt decent about Chicago, but really felt like this was a race of emphasis for us to get a win and get out of the first bracket." Jamie McMurray, a non-Chase driver, was second. Chase drivers took the next seven spots. Kevin Harvick was third, followed by Denny Hamlin, Kyle Busch, Jimmie Johnson, Joey Logano, Carl Edwards and Ryan Newman. Chase drivers Ryan Newman, Dale Earnhardt Jr and Jeff Gordon took 11th to 13th. Kurt Busch is 15th, Matt Kenseth 16th and Kasey Kahne 17th. Aric Almirol starts 22nd and Greg Biffle had the worst qualifying effort of any Chase driver and will start 26th. Tony Stewart will start 28th in the No. 14 Chevrolet, his second-worst qualifying run of the season. Stewart was in the car for the first time since he learned a grand jury will decide his fate in the fatal sprint car crash in upstate New York. Kyle Larson was 10th and was the fastest qualifying rookie. "I dont think anybody has anything for Brad right now," Larson said. "Its pretty amazing how fast he is everywhere we go." Larson finished third at Chicagoland and one of NASCARs top rookies still believed he could finish the season with his first career Sprint Cup win. Many of NASCARs elite drivers, from Jeff Gordon to Tony Stewart, have long been wowed by the natural speed, talent and versatility flashed by the 22-year-old Larson. Gordon even came over to Larson last week moment after the race ended to offer some advice on restarts. Gordon -- and so many others -- believe Larson will win soon. Especially Larson. "Yeah, every race I will sit in the motorhome and watch TV and flip to Twitter. Everybody always says this is your weekend," Larson said. "I believe them, but it kind of sucks when you dont win. But I definitely feel like we are really close. We have been close a couple of times this year." Keselowski is trying to become the first driver to repeat at New Hampshire since Kurt Busch in 2004 and would end a streak of 13 different winners in the last 13 races at NHMS. Keselowski has four (Phoenix, Dover, Kentucky) of the 19 track records set this season. Keselowskis win in the Chase opener guaranteed him a spot in the next round of the Chase. Under NASCARs elimination format, four drivers will be knocked out after every third race. Keselowski is the top seed in the 16-driver field. Keselowski might be the No. 1 seed, but he knows an upset can always rattle the bracket. "Its positive momentum," he said, "but when it resets it resets and nothing that youve done in the past really matters as long as youre eligible for the bracket. Im a long, long ways from using the word favourite or feeling overly confident." Jarrett Allen Jersey . -- Sonny Grays fastball wasnt as sharp as it usually is, and the Oakland Athletics young pitcher even had a quirky replay go against him. Kenneth Faried Nets Jersey . Braden Calverts Winnipeg rink rallied to defeat Italy 8-7. After giving up three points in the second end, Calvert came back with a single, then stole two more points in the next two ends to tie it up at the fifth-end break. https://www.netsrookiesshop.com/Jaylen-H...Edition-Jersey/. Joining him in this years class were Switzerlands Patrick Huerlimann and Norways Eigil Ramsfjell. The announcement was made at the world mens curling championship at Capital Indoor Stadium in China. Kenneth Faried Jersey . LOUIS -- Julius Randle had 19 points and 15 rebounds, Aaron Harrison finished with 18 points and No. Kyrie Irving Nets Jersey . -- LeGarrette Blount made one last big splash into a soggy end zone.Roger Federer will open Switzerlands Davis Cup first-round match against Serbia by playing Ilija Bozoljac on Friday, while Australian Open champion Stanislas Wawrinka faces Dusan Lajovic. Switzerland is an overwhelming favourite against Serbia, last years finalist and the 2010 Davis Cup champion, which will be without Novak Djokovic and two other of its top players. The second-ranked Djokovic decided to rest after losing to Wawrinka in the Australian Open quarterfinals, while Janko Tipsarevic is nursing a heel injury and Viktor Troicki is serving a 12-month doping suspension for failing to appear at a test. That means Lajovic at No. 102 is Serbias highest-ranked team member. Federer was a surprising inclusion in the Swiss team, having played only one first-round match since 2004. He last represented Switzerland in September 2012, helping win a relegation playoff against the Netherlands. "I always kept a tiny door open, Im just happy to be here," Federer said. "Spending a week with some of my best friends, playing here was something I was excited about when I left Australia." He said he felt in shape after the Australian Openn, where he lost in the semifinals against Rafael Nadal.dddddddddddd "We talked about it and the decision was made pretty quickly," Federer said. "I am really excited seeing Stan playing here after his amazing victory in Australia." Wawrinka jumped to a career-best ranking at No. 3, and now finds himself in the unusual position of being the highest-ranked Swiss player. "I just think in Melbourne all the pieces came together. I was really 100 per cent playing Novak," Wawrinka said. "When I am there and play my best game, I can beat all those players." Serbias doubles specialist Nenad Zimonjic said he was surprised that both Wawrinka and Federer came for the first-round match. "Naturally, it does not work to our advantage because they are stronger," Zimonjic said. "But it will be a fantastic experience for both our team and the audience." The series opens Friday on indoor hard court in Novi Sad. Doubles are Saturday and reverse singles Sunday. The winner plays Belgium or Kazakhstan in the quarter-finals in April.
