The NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs head back to the Southeast region, landing at one of the series’ most iconic tracks in Talladega Superspeedway. Don’t miss the upcoming Round of 12 action in the YellaWood 500 at 2 p.m. ET on Sunday (NBC/NBC Sports App, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).But first, here’s what you need to know.RELATED: Full Talladega schedule | How the postseason worksTRACK DETAILSAt 2.66 miles around, Talladega Superspeedway is the largest oval on the NASCAR circuit. Formerly known as Alabama International Speedway, the track has a long history and tradition dating back to its inaugural race in September of 1969. Dale Earnhardt still holds the record for most wins at the track with 10 — and remains the only premier series driver to ever reach double-digit victories there.The 48-feet wide asphalt racing surface spans 4,000 feet long on the backstretch, with the frontstretch between the turns and tri-oval measuring 2,150 feet. The track features up to 33 degrees of variable banking in the turns, with a 16.5-degree frontstretch banking and 2 degrees of tilt on the backstretch.STAGE LENGTHSStage 1 will end at Lap 60, Stage 2 at Lap 120 and the Final Stage at Lap 188.STARTING LINEUPDenny Hamlin is the recipient of this week’s Busch Pole Award, earning the honor of leading the field to green Sunday. This is Hamlin’s second time this season starting a race from the pole position. Kurt Busch, Martin Truex Jr., Alex Bowman and Kevin Harvick fill out the top five.The lineup was determined using NASCAR’s competition-based formula, which is a total number based on the previous event: 15% of a fastest lap time position, 25% of the driver’s final race finish position, 25% of the owner’s final race position and 35% of the owner points position.RELATED: Full starting lineup | All time ‘Dega fall winnersRULES PACKAGEThe 2020 NASCAR rules package for superspeedways will be in effect, with additional engine restrictions intended to drop the target horsepower to around 510. The cars will use the superspeedway package, but aero ducts will be eliminated and a smaller throttle body will be used. Competition officials introduced the changes May 1 after Ryan Newman’s severe wreck in the season-opening Daytona 500. Learn more about the crash findings and the intent of the safety and competition changes here.GOODYEAR TIRESCup Series teams will have seven sets of Goodyear Eagle Speedway Radials for the race.Tire management and taking risks might be the theme of this week, as it is possible to pit here without losing a lap. With the importance of track position and chances to make moves at the end of a stage, working with teammates and manufacturer groupings to perfect a winning strategy will be a focus for drivers and crew chiefs all afternoon.“While not known as a high-wear track, we do actually see some wear at Talladega,” said Greg Stucker, Goodyear’s director of racing. “Talladega was repaved in 2010, but tire wear is really not an issue. This leaves open the possibility for some pit strategy, with teams having the opportunity to take two tires, or even no tires on occasion. This will impact them in two ways — to gain a little track position and help them stay close to teammates or other cars they are working with in the draft.”PLAYOFF STATS TO KNOW— Team Penske drivers have won five of the last six playoff races at Talladega. Joey Logano and Brad Keselowski, the team’s two remaining playoff drivers this year, have a combined eight career wins here. Ryan Blaney, who was knocked out of the playoffs after the Round of 16, has won the last two Talladega races.— Kurt Busch has made the playoffs seven times during the current elimination format but has never made it to the Championship 4. With his win at Las Vegas, he advances to the Round of 8 but still has a point total that is below the cutline.— Martin Truex Jr. and Alex Bowman are the only remaining playoff drivers who do not have a superspeedway win in their Cup Series career.— Kyle Busch has just six races left to extend his 15-year win streak. He has four runner-up finishes this season.Source: Racing InsightsINTERACTIVE COVERAGEFor a more interactive experience, head over to NASCAR.com or the NASCAR Mobile App to check out an enhanced Race Center, live Lap-by-Lap coverage, the customizable live leaderboard with Scanner (which is FREE for both races), and the return of Drive (featuring in-car cameras).Be sure to set your lineup in Fantasy Live and make your picks in the NASCAR Finish Line App!2019 RACE WINNERA .007-second margin was all that separated Ryan Blaney from the runner-up at Talladega in last season’s playoff thriller.

ABC/Craig Sjodin(NEW YORK) — Get ready Bachelor Nation: the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise will include the first same-sex relationship in the franchise’s history.“Spoiler alert: I’m a queer queen,” contestant Demi Burnett, who first appeared in season 23 of The Bachelor, tweeted on Tuesday.“I don’t care who sees this,” Burnett says in one of three trailers posted on the show’s Instagram page, as she’s seen frolicking in bed with another female contestant.“I know that I love this girl,” Demi continues. “I’m just so happy that I found her, and I can definitely picture being with her for the rest of my life.”Although The Bachelor season 21’s Jaimi King was openly bisexual, this is the first time in the franchise’s history that it’ll show a same-sex couple on screen.Demi has gotten a lot of support from her fellow contestants, including current Bachelorette Hannah Brown, who replied, “and we all, bow down. i love you always and forever.”“You are an absolute queen and I love you so freaking much,” fellow Bachelor in Paradise cast member Caelynn Miller-Keys wrote in response to Demi’s post.Elyse Dehlbom, who appeared with Burnett in season 23 of The Bachelor, shared, “Proud of you and proud of your truth and the courage to share that with the world!! And this Cougar will come at anyone who doesn’t show you graciousness for your bravery!!”Bachelor in Paradise returns for its sixth season with a two-night event airing August 5-6 on ABC.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Odell Beckham Jr. has been fined more than $14,000 for violating the NFL’s uniform policy, and the Browns receiver is less than thrilled about it.”14 k for some pants that are NOT gonna protect me from anything … this s— is ridiculous,” Beckham wrote on his Instagram story Monday night. #Browns Odell Beckham Jr. posts on IG story that he was fined $14,037 for his pants failing to cover his knees during the #Seahawks game pic.twitter.com/EZAtSxtIqq— Mary Kay Cabot (@MaryKayCabot) October 22, 2019The sanction stems from the team’s Week 6 loss to the Seahawks when Beckham’s uniform pants failed to cover his knees during the game.Josh Gordon Week 3.

He was warned by the league after playing the Jets in Week 2 that he wasn’t permitted to wear his pricey Richard Mille watch during games and was also fined an undisclosed amount in Week 4 against the Ravens for an altercation. Patrick Mahomes injury update: Chiefs won’t put timeline on QB’s return “I think it’s crazy. … The NFL finds ways to just take it. They’re going to take it from you,” Beckham said earlier this month. “I understand a penalty, getting fined for that. But pants above the knees, a shirt hanging out — and we’re talking about a T-shirt that cost $5 to make, and you’re getting $5,000 taken from you. Pads above your knees, and I’m like, you really think that this little knee pad covering my kneecap is going to affect, if somebody hits me, weighs 250 pounds, running 18 mph. I don’t do physics, but if I get hit, this is not going to protect me.”It’s just stuff like that I feel like we can come to a better agreement and simplifying things and not taking the money out of the pockets of the players who are putting money into this entire game. It’s just tough. It sucks to get fined for socks. Or in the middle of the game, have someone come up and it’s like, ‘Oh, your jersey is out.’ I’m like, ‘Bro I’m not worried about my jersey in the middle of the game.’ I’m worried about what assignment do I have. A visor, this. All those little things that could be eliminated … stuff that doesn’t need to be so strict.”Expect Beckham to appeal his latest fine.

Upd. on 27/07/2020 at 12:56 CEST Barca B defender Ronald Araujo, who has played with the first team this season, came off with an ankle issue late on and was pictured in tears on the bench. 26/07/2020 Partido correspondiente a la final del playoff de ascenso a LaLiga Smartbank en el Estadi Municipal Antonio Lorenzo (Marbella) MATCH FACTS Playoff ascenso Aleix Coch struck just after the break from a corner and Nestor grabbed the winner in the 72nd minute for Sabadell, who are promoted.

Ireland 43-67 Germany Ireland’s unbeaten streak at the FIBA U18 Women’s European Championships finally came to an end in the final this evening, as they lost out 67-43 to Germany.Promotion to Division A is still assured, as is the squad’s status as Ireland’s most successful ever basketball team, and they were given a standing ovation at the final buzzer by the capacity crowd who have supported them every step of the way through a superb tournament.“It’s incredible,” said Head Coach Tommy O’Mahony. “Night after night we rolled from one game to the other, we didn’t get a chance to figure out what we’d just done. Tonight wasn’t our night, but the girls have to realize what they’ve done and how big it is in the whole scheme of things. It’s hard to believe, we won’t comprehend it for a few weeks I’d say, but it’s been great.”It was the Germans’ athleticism that caused problems early on, particularly through 6’3 power forward Nyara Sabally, the younger sister of Satou Sabally who is heading to play basketball in the USA. Nyara will be joining the Oregon Ducks in 2018 when she finishes High School.Louise Scannell helped to lift the siege with a massive three-pointer and Sabally soon hit the bench as foul trouble stunted her side’s momentum. Ireland landed five free-throws from six attempts but couldn’t handle Luisa Geiselsoder, who muscled her way to eight points and seven rebounds in the first quarter alone. Sorcha Tiernan’s long two re-energized the crowd, before Laura Schinkel stroked home on the first quarter buzzer from 30 feet for Germany to lead 24-12.The German’s had an average winning margin of 37 points in the tournament and looked even more potent with their main weapons on the floor. It was the game’s smallest player, Annaliese Murphy, who impressed with a long two but Ireland’s offence was misfiring. They were 20 points behind before Claire Melia rallied the troops with a three-point play and Bronagh Power Cassidy capped a 5-0 run for a 41-26 half time score line. Dayna Finn led the charge to eat into Germany’s lead in the third quarter.Meanwhile, the winners were both penetrating inside and accurate from the perimeter, leaving Ireland short on means to shore up the defence. Once again it was substitute Annaliese Murphy who provided a spark with three-points from the win, but Germany had the game locked up at 60-35 by the end of the third. Ireland continued the fight in the fourth quarter, supported every step of the way by the sold out National Basketball Arena. Even as the game began to look out of reach, the crowd that had been around for every single one of Ireland’s games, cheered and chanted. Germany steadily maintained their lead and it was clear they would see the game out.This Irish team created history as the first international squad to reach a European final and also as the first Irish team to clinch promotion to the A Division. While it may not have worked out for them tonight, they have certainly cemented their place in Irish basketball history.print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Email Result – FIBA U18 European Championship Division B final Launch of “100 days to Dublin” ahead of the FIBA Under 18 Women’s European Championship 21/4/2017The Ireland U18 Women’s Basketball teamMandatory Credit ©INPHO/Morgan Treacy
