game holding his ribs later

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. Peter Forsberg Jersey . - A part-time schedule is not ideal, but Pete Shepherd III has gotten practically every ounce of success out of it. In the two NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 starts this season, the Brampton, Ont., driver has a perfect record with June wins at Delaware (Ont.) Speedway and the half-mile oval at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park near Bowmanville, Ont. Add in the final few races of last season and the 27-year-old has three victories in his last four efforts. Despite the limited opportunities, Shepherd is not surprised at the success. "Im not surprised at all," he said. "We work hard on the car and behind the scenes a lot goes on for us to stay in step with the teams that race more often." Five total series wins in just 22 starts is more than staying in step. The results beg the what if question, but Shepherd doesnt spend a lot of time dwelling on that. "I can only do what I can do," he said. "We try to make the most of whats available and weve done pretty well with that recently." However, it doesnt mean that he doesnt get frustrated at times especially when watching television. "It doesnt matter if Im watching a Canadian Tire Series race or a (NASCAR) Sprint Cup Series race, it eats at me that I cant get out there more." Shepherd had some opportunities in the U.S. in his younger years, but the time wasnt right he laments in retrospect.  "I was just too young. Today, there are some young guys doing some great things, but that wasnt really the case when I was down there," he said. "Ive matured so much and learned so much as a driver. So, yes, it bugs me." The undefeated driver comes into the Hudco Electric Supply 300 presented by G-Oil at Barrie (Ont.) Speedway as the defending champion and for as physical as the racing is on the .333-mile tri-oval Shepherd likes the fact that early trouble doesnt necessarily spell doom. "Its tough racing there, thats for sure, but youre never out of it there," he said. "I think last year we were down a couple laps early on. As long as you stay with it and protect your equipment as best you can, then you always have a chance there." Having not raced since mid-June, the driver of the National Exhaust/Diamond Material Handling Dodge is ready to get back on the track. "I cant wait," he said. "The crowd at Barrie is always great and the racing is never dull. I wish the race was tomorrow." Race: Hudco Electric Supply 300 presented by G-OilPlace: Barrie (Ont.)

This is the series ninth visit to the Barrie track. The Procedure: The starting field is 24 cars, including provisionals. The first 21 cars will qualify through two-lap time trials while the remaining three spots will be awarded through the provisional process. The race will be 300 laps covering 99.99 miles. The Track: Barrie Speedway opened in 1965 and has had substantial improvements made since 1999. At that time, the track was widened and lengthened from a .25-mile oval to its current unique .333-mile tri-oval configuration. The tri-oval and pit road are situated on the backstretch. The Records: The one-lap qualifying record for the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series at Barrie is 13.903 seconds (86.226 mph) set by Don Thomson Jr. on June 28, 2008. The 300-lap race record is held by D.J. Kennington at 1 hour, 40 minutes, 8 seconds established on Sept. 11, 2010 for an average speed of 59.860 mph. The History: Barrie Speedway has hosted more NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 events than any other track. Kennington leads all drivers with three wins including both visits in 2007 – the series inaugural season. Last year, Pete Shepherd III won a typically exciting race that was delayed a day due to rain. BARRIE RACE NOTES Dodge Dominant: Dodge has won seven of the eight previous Barrie Speedway events with D.J. Kennington (No. 17 Castrol Edge/Mahindra Tractors Dodge) and Scott Steckly (No. 22 Canadian Tire/Sylvania Dodge) accounting for five of those. The only non-Dodge winner was the Chevrolet of Don Thomson Jr. in Sept. 2009. Little Separation: Barrie Speedway is close quarters competition from start to finish. Kennington holds the series mark for both largest and smallest margin of victory. He outdistanced Dave Whitlock by 1.453 seconds in Sept. 2007 and Thomson by a scant .015 seconds in the 2010 event. Long And Short Of It: The 300-lap Hudco Electric Supply-sponsored event in Barrie is one of three races scheduled for that number of laps. The Canadian Tire Series went 300 laps in July at Motoplex Speedway in Vernon, B.C., and on Aug. 17 at Riverside International Speedway in Antigonish, N.S. Barrie and Riverside are .333-mile tracks while Motoplex is a half-mile circuit. Home Tracks Update: Gord Shepherd leads the Wahta Springs Limited Late Model division by 34 points over Ron Quesnelle. In the Canestoga Property Management Thunder Cars Darryl St. Onge leads Rick Walt by just three points and Dave Doucette, in third, sits only five points back. Mike Gettliffe and Doug Butler are in a dead heat in the St. Onge Recreation Pure Stock division. LAST TIME OUT: Pintys presents the Clarington 200New Leader: With a fourth-place finish at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park D.J. Kennington took over the lead in the championship point standings by three over Scott Steckly. L.P. Dumoulin moved into the third spot – 21 points behind the leader – with the victory.  Elite Group: Dumoulin joins J.R. Fitzpatrick and Andrew Ranger as multi-time winners on the road course at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. The three drivers account for seven of the eight series wins at the track with Kennington claiming the remaining victory. High-Water Marks: Martin Roy established a new career-best finish with a runner-up finish on the road course at CTMP. His previous high was fifth on four occasions. Marc-Antoine Camirand (6th) and Gary Klutt (7th) also established new career marks. Long Field: Thirty-six cars started the Pintys presents the Clarington 200. It was the largest field for a series race since 37 cars started at Montreals Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Aug. 2011. NEXT TIME OUT: Pintys 250 at Kawartha SpeedwayAs it has for the past six seasons, the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 wraps up its season and crowns a new champion at Kawartha Speedway near Peterborough, Ont. The racy .375-mile oval will play host to the Pintys 250. A season ago, D.J. Kennington left nothing to doubt by winning the race to clinch his second series championship in three seasons. Matt Calvert Jersey . - Pierre-Maxime Poudrier scored twice and added an assist, and Antoine Bibeau made 43 saves as the Val-dOr Foreur downed the Baie-Comeau Drakkar 6-3 on Sunday to force Game 7 in their Quebec Major Junior Hockey League final series. Joe Sakic Jersey . - Kyle Wood and Barclay Goodrow scored second period power-play goals to provide all of the scoring for the North Bay Battalion in a 2-0 victory over the Erie Otters in Ontario Hockey League action on Thursday. http://www.authenticavalanchepro.com/Jt-...he-jersey/ . - Kevin Labanc and Joseph Blandisi were a potent combination for the Barrie Colts on Friday night.OAKLAND, Calif. -- Matthew Stafford and Detroits passing game looked in midseason form even with star Calvin Johnson on the sideline watching. Stafford threw touchdown passes on his first two drives of the game for Detroit before Matt McGloin threw a 19-yard TD pass to Brice Butler with 6 seconds to go to give the Oakland Raiders a 27-26 win over the Lions in an exhibition game Friday night. McGloin came in after backup Derek Carr left with injured ribs earlier in the fourth quarter and led the game-winning 68-yard drive. The victory wasnt complete until Sebastian Janikowski kicked the 33-yard extra point. That couldnt overshadow a sharp performance from Stafford, who connected on a 28-yard pass to Golden Tate on Detroits second play from scrimmage and a 4-yard score to Kris Durham on the second drive. The Lions first-team offence looked sharp even with Johnson held out of his second straight preseason game. Matt Schaub threw a deflected interception on his first drive and Oaklands first-team defence struggled early. But Carr provided a spark before McGloin got the win. Schaub started well in his first home game with the Raiders, converting a pair of third downs before his throw to James Jones in coverage was deflected and intercepted by James Ihedigbo. Two plays later, cornerback Tarell Brown bit on a double move and Tate raced past him to catch a 28-yard score. Kicker Nate Freese hit the upright on the extra point from the 15-yard line. Freese, in a competition with Giorgio Tavecchio, made up for that with a 55-yard field goal in the closing seconds of the half. Stafforrd picked apart Oaklands defence in his limited action, completing 9 of 10 passes for 88 yards and capping the second drive when Durham outjumped TJ Carrie for the 4-yard score. Patrick Roy Jersey. Stafford spread the ball around well, completing passes to five receivers on three drives before calling it a night. Detroits backup Dan Orlovsky also had success, going 8 for 12 for 153 yards and leading an 83-yard TD drive to open the second half. Schaub at least ended his night on a positive note by leading a 60-yard drive that was capped by a 1-yard TD run from Darren McFadden. Schaub was nearly intercepted by Rashean Mathis early in the drive when he was late on an out pass to Rod Streater. But Schaub was helped out by a pair of penalties on Detroit after the Lions had appeared to stop the drive and then threw a 22-yard screen pass to Maurice Jones-Drew to set up the score. Carr led the Raiders to a field goal on his first drive, throwing a 16-yard pass to Jones on a rollout for the key play. After stalling on his first drive of the second half, Carr looked sharp late in the third quarter when he completed all six passes for 76 yards on a touchdown drive capped by a 3-yard pass to undrafted rookie tight end Jake Murphy. A 50-yard punt return by Carrie set up Janikowskis third field goal of the night early in the fourth quarter to cut Detroits lead to 23-20. But Carr left the game holding his ribs later in the fourth quarter after a hard hit from Larry Webster. Carr, Oaklands second-round pick in May, went 9 for 16 for 109 yards and looked comfortable in the pocket against Detroits reserves.
