(Sept. 2) – A little precipitation didn’t dampen Kevin Ramey’s night.The Fort Worth, Texas, flyer reigned as champion of the sixth annual RaceSaver Nationals Sunday at Eagle Raceway, earning $2,500 plus a bonus based on his number of sanctioned starts this season.The checkers came after a late restart and ahead of defending race winner Jason Martin.Ramey, the IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car national points leader, had topped Friday’s opening night qualifier and started from the pole. Jake Bubak raced from his mid-pack start to third and Ethan Barrow was fourth. Luke Cranston followed as the top five was represented by drivers from as many different states.A light rain began to fall as cars were pushed out for the main event and continued throughout. Martin took the lead from his inside row one spot as Ramey fell to second and Casey Burkham’s settled into third with Barrow fourth.Barrow moved up to third on lap six with Cranston passing Burkham for fourth two laps later. Joey Danley joined the battle near the front the next time around before a caution.Burkham moved back to fourth on the restart and Barrow advanced to second before Bubak cracked the top four with 11 to go.Danley came to a stop on the next lap, the resulting yellow erasing Martin’s big lead and putting Barrow, Ramey and Bubak on his tail.Ramey again took the second spot with five circuits remaining and Bubak followed him into third the next time around. Action slowed again with three to go, setting up a dash to the finish.Ramey used the bottom of the track to pull alongside Martin coming out of turn two on the restart, making contact as they entered the backstretch. Ramey then pulled ahead of Martin and held him off for the win.Steven Shebester won the second qualifying feature, and Andy Shouse scored the $1,000 Jake Ita Memorial Race of Champions, rescheduled because of weather from Saturday to Sunday.Feature results – 1.

first_imgTaal Volcano’s lava fountain weakens, but Phivolcs says it’s not sign of slowing down Phivolcs: Cloud seeding in ashfall affected areas needs study “At the back of our minds, we haven’t maximized ourselves yet,” Perasol told the Inquirer on the eve of their duel with the Growling Tigers. “But the players understand that they have another opportunity to deliver their best against UST.”Notwithstanding their twice-to-beat advantage, the Maroons are expected to come out strong as they try to topple the Tigers for the first time this season and book a return ticket to the finals opposite unbeaten Ateneo.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSAndray Blatche has high praise for teammate Kai SottoSPORTSBig differenceSPORTSAlmazan status stays uncertain ahead of Game 4A rubber match, if UST forges one, will be played on Wednesday.UST defeated UP’s star-studded team twice in the elimination round with the Tigers’ latest victory coming on Oct. 16 when they prevailed, 84-78, following Perasol’s return from a two-game suspension. No need to wear face masks in Metro Manila, says scientist Those wins count for nothing as far as UST coach Aldin Ayo is concerned as he considers the Maroons “a different team” now in the Final Four.“All that happened in the elimination round doesn’t mater anymore because they’re a different team and this is the Final Four,” Ayo said following their gutsy 81-71 win over Far Eastern U in the first phase of the stepladder semifinals last Wednesday.“Everyone will be at their best. Everyone will do what it takes to win.”Newly minted Most Valuable Player Soulemane Chabi Yo, who had 25 points against the Tamaraws, will be leading the charge for the rejuvenated Tigers.“When he said he wants to bring a championship to UST, he really means it,” Ayo said of Chabi Yo.ADVERTISEMENT ‘People evacuated on their own’ Perasol said his players are entering the duel with the mind-set that they are actually the ones at a disadvantage.“We’re treating it as a knockout game,” said Perasol, whose team enjoyed an 11-day break.“I liked the way we practiced in the last three days. We’ve dissected the last two games against UST and there’s nothing there that says we were just outplayed by UST. There’s nothing in our [losses] against UST that we cannot address. So I think we’re ready for them tomorrow (Sunday).”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next 2 village execs nabbed in Bohol buy-bust Lava gushes out of Taal Volcano as villagers flee Rain or Shine stuns SMBeercenter_img DSWD Bicol donates P1.5M worth of food packs for Taal eruption evacuees Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles01:00Chief Justice Peralta on upcoming UAAP game: UP has no match against UST02:43Philippines make clean sweep in Men’s and Women’s 3×3 Basketball01:05Poor visibility, nakaapekto sa maraming lugar sa Batangas03:028,000 pulis sa Region 4-A, tuloy ang trabaho03:57Phivolcs, nahihirapan sa komunikasyon sa Taal01:04Sold-out: Stores run out of face masks after Taal spews ash01:45Iran police shoot at those protesting plane shootdown01:54MMDA deploys rescue team to Batangas following Taal eruption Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. 400 evacuees from Taal eruption take refuge in Mt.
