This week it was the turn of the IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified division. Jeremy Jacobs led from the drop of the green flag and worked his lead to half a straightaway by halfway. Brad Lautenbach found a fast groove, however, and reeled in the leader on lap 15.The duo entered lapped traffic on the next lap. Jacobs found himself with a lapped car coming down on him off turn four. Contact gave Lautenbach the lead with five laps remaining. Jacobs came back immediately and tried a slide job on Lautenbach causing contact between the duo.Enter Benji LaCrosse. With all the commotion up front, LaCrosse was able to run up front and into the lead with a three-wide pass with two laps remaining. LaCrosse led the final two circuits with lapped cars to his out­side. A final corner Talladega tangle allowed Lautenbach to finish second in front of Josh Long. Shawn Kilgore and point leader Johnny Whitman rounded out the top five. The feature went caution free.Dustin Loberger was the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car winner and Robby Thiel was first in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods main.last_img read more

Deontay Wilder: Anthony Joshua fight ‘is going to happen’

first_imgWilder, who will fight Dominic Breazeale next month, appears to have put aside thoughts of a rematch with Tyson Fury after their thrilling draw in December.”Fury don’t want to fight me no more. He doesn’t want to feel my power no more,” he said. “I’m learning this business as I go on and I know what me and Joshua means to the sport of boxing. The fight will happen one day, and you’ll see that I was right all along when they give me my roses and I get to smell them.”Promoter Eddie Hearn said Thursday that he expects to announce early next week who Joshua will face at Madison Square Garden in June if the ruling against Miller is upheld pending testing of a B-sample. Deontay Wilder believes a fight with Anthony Joshua to determine the undisputed heavyweight champion is inevitable.Joshua was scheduled to defend his WBA, IBF and WBO titles June 1 in New York against Jarrell Miller.  Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearHowever, that fight has been thrown into doubt after the American returned an “adverse finding” in a drug test conducted last month by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association. Miller denies any wrongdoing and has appealed the decision to deny him a boxing license.Previous negotiations between Joshua’s and Wilder’s camps appeared tempestuous and did not result in an agreement.But Wilder, the WBC champion, is confident he and Joshua eventually will put everything on the line in a blockbuster bout.”Believe me, this fight is going to happen,” Wilder told Sky Sports. “There will come a day, a day real soon, when there can only be one. The heavyweight division belongs to me, and I’ve known that for a very long time now, but I’m not satisfied with what I’ve achieved so far. I want every single belt, I want to be the undisputed champion, and I want the day to come when there can only be one king and that man will be Deontay Wilder.”This reign will be EVERLASTING!Long Live The KING. @Everlast_ @CrunchGym #AndStill #WorkTime pic.twitter.com/6B6gnKdOUU— Deontay Wilder (@BronzeBomber) April 11, 2019He added: “It’s the fight that sets me apart from everybody else. I’ve fought and hurt every single person that’s been in the ring with me and still they want questions answered. Bermane Stiverne, Alexander Povetkin, Luis Ortiz, and Tyson Fury. I took them all on and hurt them. I’ve proven time and time again that I will fight any heavyweight, but when it’s as big as me and Joshua, then it has to be right.”last_img read more
