during the week
« on: March 13, 2019, 03:03:41 AM »
A week off did nothing to mellow the tension between Simon Pagenaud and Will Power stemming from contact between the two at Long Beach. Pagenaud refused to accept an apology from Power following the April 13 race in which Pagenaud was spun from behind by the Australian. Although Pagenaud rallied to finish fifth, he said the contact from Power ruined his chance to race for the win. Now, as IndyCar heads to Barber Motorsports Park in Alabama for Sundays race, Pagenaud says his feelings toward Power have not changed. "Im still disappointed in his action, although I understand racing can be tough sometimes," Pagenaud said. "Its a shame. It really ruined my race. I guess he set the tone for the rest of the season. Were going to be racing hard against each other." Power was publicly remorseful at Long Beach, and understood Pagenuads frustration. At a test at Texas Motor Speedway three days after the race, he chalked it up to a racing incident. "Its going to happen all year between people. You just need to kind of forget about it and move on," Power said. Power won the season-opening race at St. Petersburg, was second at Long Beach and heads into Barber leading the IndyCar standings. Pagenaud finished fifth in each of the first two races, and is third in the standings. "Im pleased, actually, that were that high up in the championship to be chasing him," Pagenaud said. "Thats what Im going to do. Im going to try to be racing hard. Ill try to be as clean as I can be." But, the Frenchman acknowledged hes confused right now about what IndyCar race control will tolerate on the track. Many believe Power should have been penalized for the contact with Pagenaud, but IndyCar took no action. "We are racers. We all want to win. We all try to get into a gap thats sometimes too small. There needs to be some regulation sometimes that tells us what we can or cannot do," Pagenaud said. "Right now, to be very honest with you, I dont know whats allowed or what is not allowed. Its still a very grey area. "Im hopeful that it will be fixed for Barber and we will have a much better understanding." If race control doesnt offer guidance before Sundays race? "Its going to get pretty crazy pretty quick," Pagenaud warned. Ecco Shoes Clearance Australia . Leverkusen said on Friday it signed Schmidt on a two-year contract.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Sixty touchdown passes. Fifteen wins. A fifth MVP trophy. Peyton Manning is more productive than hes ever been, and whether hes deciphering defences at the line of scrimmage on game day or on his iPad during the week, his love for the game hasnt waned. The final piece of evidence that Manning is as good as ever came Monday. As expected, Manning passed the exam on his surgically repaired neck that was required by his contract with the Broncos that will pay him $20 million next season, according to a person with knowledge of the results. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Monday because results of medical checkups typically arent announced. Manning has said that if doctors tell him hes at risk physically, hed have no problem calling it a career. After his four neck procedures, including a spinal fusion that sidelined him for all of 2011 and eventually led to his release from Indianapolis, Manning has said he has steeled himself for that possibility. At the Super Bowl last month, he talked about how his older brother, Cooper, had to give up football after neck surgeries in high school and college, and how that had a big impact on his life. "I remember at the time, when Cooper got injured, they did a test on me and Eli. I would have been a junior in high school and Eli would have been a sixth-grader, or something. They said our necks werent picture perfect and didnt look ideal, but theyre stable enough to keep playing football. Cooper had to give up playing football. In some ways, when I had my neck problems, I thought maybe I had been on borrowed time this entire time," Manning said. "I was fortunate to have 20 years of health to play football. If that was going to be tthe end of it because of a neck injury, I really, believe it or not, had a peace about it.dddddddddddd" Once doctors told him his neck was secure, however, Manning said he quickly shifted his focus to seeing if he could strengthen his weakened throwing arm to the point where he could be productive again. After the Colts released him, Manning signed a five-year, $96 million deal in Denver, where hes thrown for 100 TDs, including the playoffs, while going 28-7 with two AFC titles. Manning won his fifth MVP award in 2013, when he set single-season records by passing for 5,547 yards and 55 TDs while guiding the Broncos, the highest-scoring team in NFL history, to their first Super Bowl in 15 seasons. Manning, who will be 38 next season, said during Super Bowl week that he had no intention of retiring after the Super Bowl. Although Mannings plans for 2014 became a big story line in the playoffs, the Broncos front office had proceeded as though their quarterback would be returning for another run at a title. Although his deal with Denver requires him to pass a physical every spring to make sure his neck is OK, if there were any concerns about his neck, he wouldnt have started all 16 games, plus three more in the playoffs. Not only is Manning still performing at his peak level, he said he still enjoys everything that goes into getting ready to play on game days and "when you still enjoy the preparation, I think you probably still ought to be doing that," he said at the Super Bowl. He passed his required exit physical that all players take in the days following the Broncos Super Bowl loss to Seattle. He then played in the Pebble Beach Pro-Am golf tournament just days later, another indication that his neck is fine. ' ' '
