NEWTON, Iowa -- Sam Hornish Jr. Sale Football Giants Jerseys . beat Ryan Blaney off a restart with 21 laps to go and hung on to win the NASCAR Nationwide Series race Sunday at Iowa Speedway. Pole-sitter Ryan Blaney was second, followed by Regan Smith, Chase Elliott and Elliott Sadler in the first stand-alone event of the season. Hornish, in the No. 54 car usually driven by Kyle Busch, led 167 of 250 laps to win in second Nationwide start of the season for Joe Gibbs Racing. Elliott has a two-point lead over Sadler and Smith in the series points standings. From the startl, Hornish and Blaney were the only drivers in serious contention. Blaney began the race on the outside of the front row after winning his first series pole Saturday. But Hornish, who qualified second, pulled in front on the opening lap. Blaney and Hornish were the only leaders for the first 214 laps, and lapped traffic was often more of a concern that the cars directly behind them. Blaney eventually caught Hornish at the tail end of a green flag run that lasted roughly 65 laps. But the final restart belonged to Hornish, who failed to secure a full-time ride for 2014 despite finishing second in the points standings last season. It was Hornishs third win in 101 Natiionwide starts. Michael McDowell then briefly took the lead with 30 laps to go by taking just two tires while the rest of the leaders took four. But McDowells gamble failed to pay off, and he settled for seventh. Elliotts fourth-place finish concluded a hectic weekend for the 18-year-old. He graduated from high school in Georgia on Saturday morning and flew back to Iowa in time to qualify sixth later in the day. Elliotts crew hung his graduation cap and tassel on the No. 9 pit box for good luck on Sunday. But Elliott, like everyone else in the field, had no answers for Hornish or Blaney.

The Spanish champions decision not to sign a defender during the January transfer window may have backfired after Valencia took advantage of a lethargic, uninspired effort by its hosts at the Camp Nou, where former Spain coach Luis Aragones -- who previously coached the Catalan side -- was honoured after his death on Saturday.ROME - Law enforcement authorities need to prevent banned physician Michele Ferrari from seeing riders and conclude his long-running stain on the sport, according to the president of the Italian Cycling Federation.It needs to be law enforcement and judicial officials that put an end to it, Renato Di Rocco told The Associated Press. Unfortunately, teams dont have these means.Earlier this month, investigators led by Padua prosecutor Benedetto Roberti sent a 550-page file detailing allegations of Ferraris continued influence on cyclists to the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI).Of the more than 35 pro cyclists involved in the inquiry, most of them are still competing, police told the AP.CONIs anti-doping prosecutor is currently going through the dossier and will likely start calling in athletes to answer for the case starting in January, the committee said.The same four-year-old investigation played a role in the massive 2012 report by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency that detailed doping by Lance Armstrong and led to him being stripped of his seven Tour de France titles.Armstrong has acknowledged that Ferrari was his trainer until 2004, and Ferraris name was mentioned throughout the USADA report.Doping is a crime in Italy, and Ferrari was already cleared on appeal in 2006 of criminal charges of distributing banned products to athletes. But he remains barred for life by the Italian Cycling Federation under a 2002 ruling. Ferrari was also banned for life by USADA in 2012.Im telling you as a citizen of Italy: these long cases dont help anyone, Di Rocco said this week. We always ask magistrates to help us and remove bad apples from cycling. But in the end we lose too much time. A lot of the people involved have already served bans.Calls to Robertis office went unanswered but nobody has been called to trial yet in the case. A similar judicial inquiry invollving alleged doping within the Lampre team has also dragged on for years without any conclusions. Cheap New York Giants Gear. When there are only doubts and shadows I think cycling is tired of that, Di Rocco said.The Gazzetta dello Sport reported this month that investigators photographed Ferrari meeting with members of the Astana team outside the teams training camp hotel one night in November 2013.Astana is the team of Tour champion Vincenzo Nibali, but his name does not appear in the Padua dossier that CONI received, the Olympic committee said.Ferrari wrote on his website earlier this month that he never went to the team hotel.Up to a few years ago I coached some of the Astana athletes, including (the teams current general manager Alexandre) Vinokourov, Ferrari said. It has never been a secret. We never hid anything. We attended training venues where there were many other athletes, all in broad daylight.The International Cycling Union decided last week that Astana will keep its World Tour license — although on probation — despite five senior and development squad riders being caught doping with EPO and steroids since August.There was certainly some tension within the squad, Nibali said while at CONI on Monday for an awards ceremony. Ive always remained calm. We were waiting for the license and in the end it came and its all been resolved well.Meanwhile, Nibali is drawing out his schedule for 2015, and the big question is whether hell ride in the Giro dItalia.For sure Ill do the Tour. Whereas for the Giro Im still waiting, he said.Di Rocco suggested that Nibali should definitely focus only on the Tour, partly because the Giro features an unusually long 59-kilometre (37-mile) time trial.Thats so long it doesnt suit anybody, not even (Chris) Froome or (Alberto) Contador, Di Rocco said.___Andrew Dampf can be followed at Cheap Heat Jerseys Cheap Bucks Jerseys Cheap Timberwolves Jerseys Cheap Pelicans Jerseys Cheap Knicks Jerseys Cheap Thunder Jerseys Cheap Magic Jerseys Cheap 76ers Jerseys Cheap Suns Jerseys Cheap Blazers Jerseys Cheap Sacramento Kings Jerseys Cheap Spurs Jerseys Cheap Raptors Jerseys Cheap Jazz Jerseys Cheap Wizards Jerseys ' ' '
