FORT WORTH, Texas -- IndyCar owner Ed Carpenter now drives his car only on ovals. [url=]Vans Old Sk Antworten

FORT WORTH, Texas -- IndyCar owner Ed Carpenter now drives his car only on ovals. Vans Old Skool Saldi . He does it well. Carpenter stayed in front of Will Power during a two-lap shootout to win at Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday night after a late caution night wiped out his huge lead. The victory came two weeks after a late accident took away any chance to win the Indianapolis 500. "Its just good to bounce back," Carpenter said. "Nothing really totally makes up for missed opportunity at the Speedway. But at the same time, it always feels good to win, especially a place like this. ... This is a big win for us." On the final green-flag stop with 35 laps left, Carpenter beat polesitter and season points leader Power off pit road. Team Penske driver Power made things worse when he was penalized for speeding out of the pits. "Im just going too hard," said Power, who had his fourth drive-thru penalty in five races but kept the points lead. "I just go for race wins. Im not looking at points." Power was sixth, and Carpenter had a lead of about 18 seconds over Juan Pablo Montoya, when Takuma Satos engine blew and his car caught fire with seven laps left. While the top four cars stayed out during that caution, Power went in for fresh tires. That gave him the chance to make up some ground, and he made a big charge after the final restart to finish second, only a half-second back. With another lap, the outcome might have been different. "I dont know. Ed was awfully strong," Power said. "Hes an awesome driver and it would have been a good battle at the end. ... It was a lot of fun." Carpenters third career victory, all on ovals, came after leading 90 of 248 laps. After winning at Kentucky for Sarah Fisher Racing in 2011, he started his own team the next year and won the season finale at California. Carpenter was on the pole at Indy the last two seasons, and this year is leaving the road and street courses to Mike Conway. Conway won at Long Beach the second race this season and was in the cockpit for both races at Detroit last weekend. So this was the first race for Carpenter since the late crash at Indy with James Hinchcliffe. "It feels good. Theres no denying the fact that I was really mad after Indy," Carpenter said. "Its not that Im still mad at Hinch, but Im still mad at the situation and we lost an opportunity. ... Were just going to keep the intensity up and try to keep fighting for wins." Carpenter went to the high side to get around Power on lap 182, and within a lap had already pushed ahead by nearly a second. Power led 145 laps. Montoya finished third, ahead of Simon Pagenaud, Scott Dixon and Tony Kanaan -- the only drivers to finish on the lead lap. Helio Castroneves, the defending race winner and a four-time winner at Texas, was 10th. The race was 20 laps longer than last year when Castroneves won. At the end of 228 laps, the length of the 2013 race, Carpenter had a 13 1/2-second lead over Montoya. Indianapolis 500 champion Ryan Hunter-Reay, the Dallas-born driver who has said he "definitely, desperately" wants to win at Texas, had another tough weekend and only finished 135 laps before losing power and oil pressure. Since winning at Indy, Andretti Motorsport driver Hunter-Reay finished 16th and 19th at the dual races in Detroit and 19th at Texas. Marco Andretti, his teammate, finished last in the 22-car field after his own mechanical issues. Andretti started 17th and quickly moved into the top 10 after three laps before his engine blew and the car caught fire while he was trying to get back into the pits. He had to stop on the apron out of Turn 4, then hopped out of the car and walked back to his pit box. "This ones frustrating and this one really hurts for the championship too," said Andretti, who entered the weekend fifth in season points, two spots below Hunter-Reay.

Old Skool Outlet Italia . - The New Orleans Saints have re-signed receiver Joseph Morgan for one year and have agreed to a four-year deal with free agent fullback Erik Lorig. . -- Marty Havlat scored three goals for the first time in nearly nine years, and the San Jose Sharks prevented Colorado from clinching the Central Division title with a 5-1 victory over the Avalanche on Friday night.BEREA, Ohio - Browns cornerback Justin Gilbert is ending his season confused, offended and determined.Nobody said its easy being an NFL rookie.The No. 8 overall pick in this years draft, Gilbert has been a major disappointment, so much so that a few of his teammates were publicly critical of him in recent days, saying he had wasted his first season.Following practice on Friday, Gilbert said he was hurt by some of those sharp remarks and promised to atone for his missteps.Im not mad at anyone about it, I brought it upon myself and I can take that and roll with it, he said. I messed up, but I can promise my teammates Im going to make it right.The Browns used their first pick this year to select the 6-foot, 202-pound Gilbert, a dynamic defender and return specialist at Oklahoma State. The team believed that by putting him on the opposite side of Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden the Browns would have one of the leagues toughest defensive backfields. But it didnt go according to plan as Gilbert made just two starts, was passed on the depth chart by undrafted free agent KWaun Williams and Pierre Desir, a fourth-round pick, and was benched.He didnt perform on the field and had a questionable work ethic away from it.Gilbert refused to get into any specifics about what may have prompted safety Donte Whitner and linebacker Karlos Dansby — two of the teams most respected veterans — to speak out about him. Browns coach Mike Pettine said he didnt have a problem with any teammate giving tough love to another.Im not a person to judge my teammates and put it out there in the media like that, Gilbert said. If I have a problem with somebody, I would address them face to face and thats just all I can say about that.Gilbert said part of the problem could be that hes not outgoing and his quietness may have rubbed others the wrong way. Gilbert felt some of the criticism may have been a little too personal.I think it may have crossed the line a little bit, he said, but at the same time were all here to do the same thing and thats win and provide for our families. So some of the things were right and some of the things couldve been kept to themselves. Vans Old Skool Outlet. ilbert would not address if he has been late to meetings.We keep family business in the family, he said.Earlier this week, rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel acknowledged he may have misjudged the transition to the NFL and said he intends to work harder in the off-season. Gilbert agrees with Manziel and that he may have taken some things for granted.Not anymore.I think I came along as the season went on and I think I made some pretty good plays down the stretch that werent really noticed or talked about like the plays that I didnt make that were talked about at the beginning of the season, so its just how things went I guess, he said. Ive just got to come back next season and turn it all around. ... I can assure everyone here that I will work a lot harder, in the off-season and during the season. Thats one promise I can make.Does he want to be great?I will be great, he said.Gilbert said his enthusiasm for playing with the Browns has not been dampened. If anything, hes more determined to show the team he was worthy of a high pick.It definitely sparked a flame inside of myself to want to prove a lot of people wrong and a lot of doubters, he said. Thats going to be one of my main goals next year. I think its just a little, minor setback for a major comeback.NOTES: Versatile CB Buster Skrine, an unrestricted free agent following the season, said he hopes to re-sign with Cleveland. Browns defensive co-ordinator Jim ONeil would like to see that happen. I would love to bring Buster back, he said. Hes one of my favourite guys on the defence. He embodies Play Like a Brown. I dont ever want to let good players walk out the door. ... DL Ahtyba Rubin will not play in Sundays finale because of a left ankle injury. Rubin, who played in his 100th game with Cleveland last week, is also a free agent. ... S Jim Leonhard insists Sunday will be his final game, ending a 10-year NFL career. Getting out there in the fourth quarter knowing that its the last one, Im sure the emotions will hit, he said.___Online: AP NFL website: and Wholesale Hoodies NFL Shirts Outlet Jerseys NFL Wholesale Cheap NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
