first_imgBy Don MartinWHITE CITY, Ore. (May 7) – Driving a great race from his pole position start, multi-time track cham­pion Mark Wauge won the 25-lap Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified main event Saturday night at Southern Oregon Speedway.Wauge hinted at possibly racing for another championship and his win was not easy with Matt Duste shadowing his every move up front.

Nick Trenchard took over third and Wauge was in lapped traffic by the 12th circuit.The leader never really shook Duste off of his tail in the caution-free event but drove a great race for the victory. Jesse Bailey collected a third place finish ahead of Albert Gill and Trenchard.Jorddon Braaten kicked off his title defense in style by winning the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod feature. Braaten had a mid-race challenge from Dwayne Melvin before collecting the victory.Braaten raced past front row starters Melvin and Garrett Hamilton to lead the opening lap. Randy Fer­nandes exited after the first caution. Working lap nine, Melvin got a run down the back stretch and passed Braaten for the lead, only to have the pass negated by a yellow flag.Braaten continued to lead Melvin and Nelson on the restart, and the lead trio ran in that order the rest of the way.last_img read more

Edwards adds to Wolves woes

first_img Connor admitted rookie David Davis, recalled on Tuesday from a loan spell at Chesterfield, could come into his plans to face Rovers. He said: “David is fit and has been playing well. He’ll keep that competition for places going. He’s ready and he’s training well so, if I think he’s ready to play in our first team, that’s where he has to play.” Connor knows he has to pick the players up after the mauling by Fulham and also stop making goal-costing errors. He said: “We started that process (rebuilding confidence) on Monday. We viewed the game, and sat down as a group. “We looked at it and said that it wasn’t as good as it was against Newcastle. “We spoke amongst ourselves and we put that to bed. Now all our energy is looking forward to playing on Saturday against Blackburn, which is obviously a massive game.” Edwards is struggling to overcome the knee injury which kept him out of Sunday’s 5-0 defeat by Fulham at Craven Cottage. But his absence will be of more significance this weekend as Karl Henry has also been sidelined for three to four weeks with a hamstring injury suffered against the Cottagers. Wolves caretaker manager Terry Connor confirmed: “Dave Edwards has irritated the medial side of his knee and hasn’t trained for two weeks. That leaves him very doubtful for Saturday.” Wolves’ midfield problems have increased with David Edwards rated “very doubtful” for Saturday’s Barclays Premier League relegation battle with Blackburn at Molineux.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
