Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone says his series and NASCAR wont be competing for the same motorsport fans in Texas when they hold races 190 miles apart in November. Cheap Nike Free Wholesale . Ecclestone dismissed on Wednesday any clash between the series, after the top executive at Texas Motor Speedway called F1 "arrogant" for scheduling the United States Grand Prix in Austin on the same weekend that his track hosts NASCAR in Fort Worth. "I absolutely think its foolish," said Eddie Gossage, the track president and general manager. "Its a shot fired by Formula One at NASCAR. I cant say I was surprised because Bernie Ecclestone does a lot of foolish things. The thing he unfortunately doesnt recognize is there is an 800-pound gorilla when it comes to major American motorsports. The 800-pound gorilla is NASCAR." Texas Motor Speedway will host NASCARs Texas 500 on Nov. 2, the same day F1 will hold its only race in the U.S. this year. Fort Worth is about a 3-hour drive from Austin. While Gossage thought a stronger stance by the management at Circuit of the Americas would have prevented the scheduling issue, Ecclestone believed it was a non-issue. "Ive also spoken to the people that run the race at COTA and their position is that they believe the NASCAR crowd is a different crowd to Formula One, different people, different customers," Ecclestone said. "At the end of the day, they run a domestic series in America -- we run a world championship." F1 requires considerable logistical planning by the teams, he said. "Weve a small problem they (NASCAR) dont have -- we have six jumbo jets to move around all our equipment, and we have to find the most sensible way to use them to do that," Ecclestone said. "We have to be efficient and bear in mind we may also encounter problems at an airport. "There are issues that can occur, but (Gossage) and other people do not realize these things. The race prior to the one in the U.S. is in Russia, in Sochi. Weve never been before, and we have to get out of there and into Austin. That is probably a lot easier than trying to get into Brazil, and then we have to get out of there (Sao Paulo) to go to Abu Dhabi." Gossage said F1 could have found another weekend to race in the U.S. "Its just not smart," he said. "Theres 52 weeks in the year. But that was the only weekend that Formula One could make it work in Austin, Texas. Give me a break." Nike Free Cheap Nz Wholesale .J. -- Travis Zajac of the New Jersey Devils took a lot of grief considering his scored the first of his career-best three goals just 12 seconds into a crucial game against the Florida Panthers. Cheap Nike Free Nz . Its the games against the leagues struggling franchises that have proved to be an issue. . The weekend at Oriole Park has been less kind, with three players suffering varying degrees of injury. The worst ailment of the three, at least optically, is the deep bone bruise suffered by Adam Lind when he fouled a pitch off the top of his right foot in the sixth inning of Saturdays game.Washington’s supporting cast is pitching in, Boston getting what they’ve come to expect from Bergeron, the Flames get a valuable performer back from injury, Fantasy tips and more in Scott Cullen’s Statistically Speaking. HEROES Eric Fehr – The Capitals centre produced two goals and an assist in a 6-2 win at Toronto, giving him eight points (6 G, 2 A) in the past five games. Playing 14:37 per game (just down from last year’s career-high 14:45 per game), Fehr is scoring goals at a career-best rate (0.36 per game), thanks to his career-best 17.1% shooting percentage. As noted a couple of days ago, Fehr is among the players with the best ratio of scoring chance percentage to shot attempt percentage, so he may have some shot quality working in his favour right now. Patrice Bergeron – Boston’s play-driving centre scored a pair of goals, including the overtime winner (with what may well have been a high stick), in a 3-2 win at Pittsburgh. He has eight points (4 G, 4 A) in the past seven games to get his point production up to typical levels – over 0.70 points per game for the sixth consecutive season. He remains a dominant possession player. RELATIVE CORSI LEADERS - FORWARDS (min. 300 5-on-5 minutes) PLAYER TEAM POS.

He has just six points (2 G, 4 A) in 12 games this season and 107 points in 258 career games, but Backlund has been a strong puck possession player for virtually his entire time in the NHL. ZEROES Jonathan Bernier – The Maple Leafs goaltender, who has been one of their most valuable players, allowed five goals on 25 shots in a 6-2 loss to Washington, dropping his save percentage to .892 over the past five games, and .916 for the season.

Melker Karlsson – The Sharks rookie winger doesn’t have a great scorer’s pedigree, but has three goals in the past three games and skating on a line with Logan Couture and Joe Pavelski is a good opportunity. Ryan Ellis – Five points (2 G, 3 A) in the past three games for the Nashville blueliner, who is averaging a carrer-high 19:50 time on ice per game. J.T. Miller – The Rangers forward is battling for ice time, but has four points (1 G, 3 A) in the past four games to make his case.
