most recent race at Indianapolis Motor Spee from 123's blog

Asif returns to first-class cricket Mohammad Asif became the last of the three Pakistan cricketers who were jailed for spot-fixing after the 2010 Lords Test to return to first-class cricket and that, too, in a match captained by Salman Butt who was in charge of Pakistan on that day. Sam Acho Jersey . After missing the first two games of Water and Power Development Authoritys season with a hamstring strain, he impressed across the two innings with figures if 16-5-51-2 and 13-6-19-2. It was his first appearance in Pakistan domestic cricket since November 2009. As with Butt and Mohammad Amir, Asif returned to playing when his ban elapsed but was held back from first-class action with the PCB wanting to regulate his comeback carefully. Asifs four wickets helped his side to victory by an innings and 100 runs against Islamabad. WAPDA presently lead the table being unbeaten so far with three straight wins.FATA takes a flight with first victoryFederally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), a side only inducted into the first-class circuit last year, won their first match of the season by thumping Pakistan International Airlines by 157 runs in Sialkot. In 2013, the PCB under Zaka Ashrafs chairmanship recognised FATA as a Full Member of the domestic circuit and allowed them to try and qualify for first-class cricket. They eventually made it to the main round of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy last year but finished bottom of Pool B.Irfanullah Shah, a 21-year-old pace bowler from Banu, a town bordering with North Waziristan, was the star as he claimed eight wickets in the match. FATA consolidated in their second innings after edging a two-run lead in the first innings, and set PIA a target of 345. Former Test batsman Faisal Iqbal (74) and Shahid Ilyas (51) were the only batsmen to offer some resilience before the side fell for 187.Umar Akmal in a contract mixUmar Akmal missed the game against his former departmental and employer Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited at the Gaddafi Stadium. The reason offered was a minor injury but reports suggested Umar did not want to end his chances of returning to his previous team who have kept his contract open to allow such a move. There is no set rule or policy, but an understanding allows Umar to decide if he wants to plot a return. But had he played against them, the department could have shut the door on any comeback. Lahore Whites were captained by Asif Raza instead and SNGPL, despite having a decent lead of 178, ended up drawing the game.Another Akmal stepping upAfter suffering a finger injury against Sri Lanka in 2014, Adnan Akmal was replaced by Sarfraz Ahmed and has not returned to the national side with Sarfraz having cemented his position in all formats. Adnan has had a quiet two years since losing his place, but recently struck form with 107 for SNPGL against Lahore Whites following scores of 69, 114 not out and 60 not out.Islamabad hold on in thrillerThere was a gripping finish at the Diamond Cricket Ground in Islamabad - a venue known to be tough for batsmen - where National Bank of Pakistan finished nine wickets down and 13 runs short of their target. Requiring 228 in 70 overs, NBP never looked in control as they fell to 92 for 6 but a 70-run stand for the seventh wicket between Qaisar Abbas (50) and Faizan Khan (26*) brought about the tense conclusion. Rawalpindi pushed hard for the final wicket but Faizan and No. 11 Atif Jabbar - who had come together with 36 needed - held out. Adrian Amos Jersey . Having already announced that the race will start May 9 with three stages in Northern Ireland and Ireland and finish in Trieste on June 1, the rest of the route was unveiled Monday.

The Daytona 500 start time is moving later in 2017, and the weekend of the race is moving earlier in 2018.NASCAR has moved the 2017 Daytona 500 one hour later, to a 2 p.m. ET listed start time, one of 11 Cup races it will start later in 2017 in hopes of finishing closer to prime time Sunday nights.Thirteen of the 36 points races will start in the 3 oclock hour, and 12 races will start in the 2 oclock hour in 2017. Only three races will start in the 1 oclock hour in 2017, compared with 12 in 2016.While it is starting races later, NASCAR will start its season a week earlier beginning in 2018. The Daytona 500, which was moved from the Sunday before Presidents Day to the Sunday after Presidents Day starting in 2012, will move back to Presidents Day weekend starting in 2018.A NASCAR spokesman said the move of the Daytona 500 date for 2018 was more about tradition and that it is likely to remain on Presidents Day weekend in future seasons.If NASCAR didnt move the Daytona 500 to Feb. 18, 2018, it would have had only one off-weekend that year. The move to a week later in 2012 was done in part because the NFL was discussing an 18-game schedule instead of its current 16 games, potentially putting the Super Bowl on that Presidents Day weekkend. Roquan Smith Jersey.

Earlier insight on start times benefits not only fans, but also our teams and tracks, as it provides more opportunities to plan travel and to purchase race tickets.According to Speedway Motorsports, NASCAR races are averaging viewership of 5.3 million people for the first 19 races of 2016, down from 5.7 a year ago. The most recent race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway saw increases on NBCSN saw an 11 percent jump in viewership from 4.7 million in 2015 to 5.2 million in 2016.
