CONCORD, N.C. – Ryan Reed’s No. 16 Ford will take on an iconic look this weekend at Darlington Raceway, as he and Roush Fenway Racing honor Greg Biffle’s back-to-back Southern 500 wins in 2005 and 2006 with a patriotic throwback scheme. Reed’s car will resemble the one that Biffle drove to his first Southern 500 triumph in 2005. The timely throwback comes on the heels of team owner Jack Roush being called for induction into the NASCAR Hall of Fame in 2019. Saturday’s Sport Clips Haircuts VFW 200 will mark Reed’s fourth start at Darlington. He has a best finish of 13th at the 1.366-mile, egg-shaped oval, achieved in both 2014 and 2016. “This Greg Biffle throwback is really cool for a lot of reasons,” said Reed. “I’ve been honored to drive the 16 car for five years now and Greg has been such a big part of making this number famous, getting so many wins in it. This scheme, in particular, I remember watching as a kid and him … [Read more...] about Ryan Reed Honoring Biffle With Darlington Throwback
While BMW cars do have a long history of popping up on the big screen, now, the German automaker will be making its debut in the world of video streaming. In fact, a wide range of BMW models will be featured alongside CIA analyst and agent Jack Ryan, in a new Amazon series titled ‘Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan’. Season One will be available exclusively on Prime Video starting August 31, 2018. The character of Jack Ryan is being played by John Krasinski (A Quiet Place, 13 Hours, The Office), who is joined by Wendell Pierce and Abbie Cornish to complete a star-studded cast. Ryan and his CIA colleagues will rely strongly on the 540i xDrive Sedan, powered by a high-performance inline six-cylinder engine. The fact that the car also comes with all-wheel drive will prove useful during a chase sequence which is said to occur in the snow. Other models being featured are the X5 and X6, as well as the legendary BMW 2002. “Throughout the action-packed story, Jack Ryan not only … [Read more...] about BMW 5-Series Sedan Joins Cast Of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan
New PUBLISHED: 17:14 11 June 2018 | UPDATED: 17:14 11 June 2018 Layth Yousif Arsenal's Jack Wilshere on the ball during the UEFA Europa League match at the Emirates Stadium, London. PA Wire/PA Images Bookies have slashed their prices for Jack Wilshere to leave Arsenal for London rivals West Ham. The Islington Gazette spoke to a source close to the player who had said negotiations with the North London giants were ‘ongoing’ until recently. While the Gunners had upped their original offer believed to be in the region of £85,000 per week to ‘low six figures’, any possible deal would still include a heavily incentivised portion due to the 26-year-old’s previous injury record. Ironically Wilshere played his highest number of games for three seasons for Arsenal last term, making 38 appearances, scoring two goals – proving his long-term fitness just as his contract is due to expire at the end of this month. Both parties have reached a … [Read more...] about Jack Wilshere – bookies slash price for Arsenal midfielder to join West Ham as Crystal Palace monitor situation
Did you watch HBO’s new David Simon show, The Deuce? It takes a while to get started, kind of like Season 2 of The Wire, also a Simon creation, but it eventually acquires some real momentum. Anyway, if you ever get around to seeing it, you will hear that the opening theme is a carefully edited version of Curtis Mayfield’s “(Don’t Worry) If There’s A Hell Below, We’re All Going To Go.”One of the best sections of that song goes something like this: Everybody prayingAs you’ll see below, however, when it comes to using performance automobiles for improbable-bordering-on-impossible family tasks, sometimes people do more than just lay around…Ryan asks,I currently drive a Focus RS that I’ve had over the past year. I live in Wisconsin and drive it throughout the year. I love it for the driving experience and love having the manual transmission. What I’m not thrilled about is the interior room.
