to test the system and so I think thats fair to give that chance to everyone from wangzonghui's blog

HOMESTEAD, Fla. Luis Gonzalez Jersey . -- NASCAR chairman Brian France refused Sunday to discuss his political support of President-elect Donald Trump and quickly pivoted the conversation toward his own efforts at improving diversity in his sport.France addressed the media hours before Sundays title-deciding season finale, and a day after Mexican Daniel Suarez became the first foreign-born driver to win a NASCAR national title. Earlier in the 17-minute news conference, France declared that Suarez would never have been in position to win the Xfinity Series championship if not for Frances diversity efforts.Without the Drive for Diversity program, with certainty, Daniel Suarez is not in NASCAR, France said.When the topic turned to Trump, France quickly shut down the questioning.France was an early supporter of Trump and took several drivers to a rally in Georgia earlier this year. France also appeared as a Trump supporter at a town hall meeting during the campaign.Its been Trumps stance on immigration, specifically with Mexico, that has appeared to be in conflict with Frances efforts. France has pushed for increased diversity, and was outspoken on his desire to remove the Confederate flag from NASCAR events.Asked Sunday about Suarezs championship in comparison to his support of Trump, France cut off the question from NBCSports.com.Ill stop you right there, he said. First of all, nobody wants to hear my political views. Not one person on this stage wants to hear from me politically. So I wont be talking about that.But on my diversity, nobody, nobody in this company, has worked harder, done more and resourced it better than me. I founded the Diversity Council. I fought for every single thing that makes sense, because thats my core belief about diversity. Its very, very important. I talk about it frequently, and my efforts there should never be challenged, no matter what my political views might be. Thats a ridiculous thing to do.France was prickly about several other topics and sweating profusely under the lights of the Homestead-Miami Speedway dais.He argued that the sport is healthy, even though Sprint is ending its 13-year association as title sponsor after Sundays race. NASCAR has had nearly two years to replace Sprint, but no sponsor has been named. In recent days, Monster Energy has emerged as a possible front-runner for the title rights.Its taken a little longer than I thought, but its also a big agreement and an important agreement, France said. Its not just dollars and cents, but its a fit for us. We dont want to announce anything certainly around this weekend. Were in a good spot with that, I believe, but well have to see how it finally plays out.France also downplayed the decline in television ratings -- eight Chase races have been down double-digits this season -- but France doesnt think the elimination-style playoff format is to blame. He noted ratings declines in all major sports and that consumption has shifted. For example, France said, he watched a Duke basketball game in a highlight package on his laptop rather than watch the game live on television.While some fans have pointed to the Chase for the championship system as a reason they no longer watch races, France believes the format now used in all three national series is best for the sport.Were very pleased with the formats. Wouldnt change a thing, he said. Go back a year ago for the Xfinity Series ... you had the winner and the champion and a couple others talk about all they needed to do was finish the race. `If I ran 30th, Ill be OK. Well, thats not really great for great competition.Speed it up to this year, you had all four thinking theyve got to win the race. Thats a big deal for auto racing. Were bold enough to do that.

Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. Taijuan Walker Jersey . -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams. http://www.diamondbacksteamproshop.com/customized/ . -- In a span of seven Washington Redskins offensive plays, Justin Tuck sacked Robert Griffin III four times. HOCKENHEIM, Germany -- Sebastian Vettel has called on Formula One to reconsider introducing Halo for 2017 once more on-track tests have taken place following the summer break.On Thursday the Strategy Group ruled that the head protection device would not be introduced until 2018 at the earliest, citing a lack of on-track testing as the reason for the delay. Prior to the decision the FIA produced a presentation for drivers and teams underlining the readiness of the Halo, but now it has called for further on-track tests to take place at the remaining races ahead of the introduction of the device in 2018.I dont think we should doubt the [FIAs] research, Vettel said. I think the way it was explained to us, the main point is that not all of us had a chance to test the system and so I think thats fair to give that chance to everyone. A. J. Pollock Jersey. I think theres a plan probably in Spa, Monza, to be given the chance to all of us and make us run with the system for this one session to see how it feels.Although changes to the technical regulations for the following season are not usually made so late in the year, Vettel sees no reason why Halo cannot be introduced if the tests in practice sessions prove positive.The way I understood it is that its still open for 2017 as well, I mean if everything goes right, why not? In the end we are trying to change something for the better. I think at this point its fair to say OK let everyone have a go and go from there.
