Stanford is outstanding at Pahrump’s Stormin’ Mormon

first_img“There were some yellows at the right time so the leaders didn’t get away from me,” he added.  PAHRUMP, Nev. (March 2) – February starts in Arizona helped put California IMCA Modified driver Alex Stanford in victory lane in Nevada. Kollin Hibdon led early from the pole before the sixth starting Dotson took over up front on lap six. Marriott, coming off the midweek victory at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, charged into contention late in the contest. Stanford, however, pulled away following a restart with five laps to go, sticking to the dominant lower line to win ahead of Marriott, Dotson, Travis Peery and Randy Thornell. The checkers, Stanford’s first of the 2019 IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing point season, came after four Arizona Modified Tour starts. Stanford topped Saturday’s Stormin’ Mormon special at Pahrump Valley Speedway, passing Ethan Dotson for the lead 30 circuits into the 40 lapper and then holding Hunter Marriott at bay for the $2,000 checkers. center_img Alex Stanford banked $2,000 by winning the IMCA Modified feature at Pahrump Valley Speedway’s Stormin’ Mormon special.

I just concentrated on hitting my marks and got them one at a time.”  Feature results – 1. Alex Stanford; 2. Hunter Marriott; 3. Ethan Dotson; 4. Travis Peery; 5. Randy Thornell; 6. Austin Kiefer; 7. James Thibodeaux; 8. Blake Thornell; 9. Joey Price; 10. Kollin Hibdon; 11. D.J. Shannon; 12. Donald Riley; 13. Jon Mitchell; 14. Cody Laney; 15. Clifton King; 16. Mike Wells; 17.

United Come from Two Goals Down to Beat Newcastle 3-2

first_imgThe hosts spurned a couple of great chances before Juan Mata netted a beautiful free-kick on 70 minutes and Anthony Martial levelled matters on 76 minutes after a lovely move involving Pogba.With the clock ticking down, substitute Sanchez made the winning contribution as he nodded home from Ashley Young’s cross in the final minute of normal time to seal a dramatic three points for United – and perhaps save the job of their manager.Football journalists everywhere must have been writing their obituary to Mourinho as Manchester United manager at the half-time break. His team was hopeless, the Portuguese looked like a beaten man.However, he delivered the team-talk of his life and his team delivered. Any argument that the players don’t want to play for the 55-year-old was defeated, as United produced a stirring comeback. The last 20 minutes was almost like a tribute to Sir Alex Ferguson and how his teams used to play at Old Trafford. Various reports suggest Mourinho would be sacked post-match, no matter the result. It would take a very brave person to fire him after this.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Alexis Sanchez scored a dramatic late, late winner as Manchester United yesterday came from two goals behind to complete a thrilling 3-2 victory over Newcastle United at Old Trafford.Amid speculation that Jose Mourinho is set to be sacked by the board anytime soon, United made a horrific start as goals from Kenedy on seven minutes and Yoshinori Muto three minutes later put the visitors two goals clear.After witnessing one of the worst first-half performances at Old Trafford in recent history, Mourinho changed to a back-three at the break, with Paul Pogba placed at the heart of defence. And the response was immediate.last_img read more
