- Scramble for Gander Trucks playoff spots intensify
With four races left in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series regular season, there are still four spots available for the postseason Playoffs, and the competition for those berths is certain to amp up in Thursday’s Buckle Up in Your Truck 225 at Kentucky Speedway (7:30 p.m. ET on FS1, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).The assertion that four spots are available is based on the reasonable assumption that Ross Chastain cracks the top 20 in the series standings. Having declared for the series championship in mid-season, Chastain took the first step toward a Playoff spot with his victory at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway near St. Louis.Chastain is currently 24th in the series standings, but he’s only 10 points behind Jennifer Jo Cobb in 20th.RELATED: Gander Trucks standings Currently, only two of the top eight drivers—Brett Moffitt and Austin Hill—have won races this season. Johnny Sauter and Chastain are 10th and 24th, respectively, but are expected to punch their Playoff tickets because of their victories.That leaves six of the top eight in the standings—Grant Enfinger, Stewart Friesen, Matt Crafton, Ben Rhodes, Harrison Burton and Todd Gilliland scrambling for the remaining four positions. A win at Kentucky would be a huge boon for any of those six drivers.
- CUbroadcast’s nearly complete coverage of NAFCU’s 47th Annual Conference in Las Vegas
ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Risk-Based Capital dominated the deluge of discussions at the 47th Annual NAFCU Conference held in Las Vegas, NV, a week or so ago. But so did payments, technology, security, and a myriad of other timely FI topics at this yearly gathering of credit union folks.Feeling a little insecure and left out, we decided to pack up our camera, mics, and lights and ventured to this town that never sleeps — oh wait, that’s New York. But nobody sleeps in Vegas either — especially when you have all those vital issues to cover. That’s enough to keep you tossing and turning all night — and the fact that you won $350 at the roulette table, devoured one or two of Gordon Ramsey’s BURGRs, and saw the Blue Man Group show for the 12th time.So without further delay, here’s our “nearly complete coverage” of NAFCU’s 47th Annual Conference from the Venetian in Las Vegas. (Still can’t believe they have a gondola ride on the SECOND floor of the hotel.) Enjoy — and many thanks to the folks at NAFCU for their hospitality. And sorry for cutting of the top of your head, Dan. Bad framing.Visit:NAFCU.org continue reading »
