NASCAR RACE #11: Darlington Raceway on Saturday May 8 on Fox-TV

compiled from staff and NASCAR info

NASCAR moves to race 11 on the 2010 schedule, Darlington Raceway in Darlington, South Carolina. Darlington. situated in the northeastern corner of South Carolina is in the heart of Tobacco farming. It was named after Revolutionary war Colonel Darlington. Population in the city is 6,720 and in the metro area 12,066. The largest city nearby is Florence, South Carolina. It is the home of Minnesota Twins second baseman Orlando Hudson.

Darlington Raceway (Nascar)

The egg-shaped oval has a race length of 501.3 miles or 367 laps on the 1.366 mile long track.

The home of the Darlington Raceway Stock Car Museum, the track also was home to NASCAR’S closest finish when Ricky Craven edged out Kurt Busch by 0.002 of a second on March 16, 2003.

The first-paved speedway to host NASCAR events, Darlington was built in 1950 and had become known as “The Lady in Black” and the “Track Too Tough to Tame.” Very few drivers avoid leaving a race at Darlington without a scrape on the right side of their cars, due to the tight corners on turns 3 and 4.

Darlington Raceway’s egg shape is partly the result of a fish story. To acquire land for the track, developer Harold Brasington had to assure landowner Sherman Ramsey that a small minnow pond, outsied of what now is turn 4, would not be disturbed. Says Brasington, “To save the pond, we had to build the west turns a little tighter than the other end. Drivers have always said that Darlington is the toughest track in the world. I guess a lot of that is because of Ramsey’s Pond.”

The 2009 Southern 500 race saw Mark Martin taking the lead from Tony Stewart with 46 laps to go and won by more than 1.5 seconds. Jimmie Johnson took second ahead of the Stewart-Haas cars of Stewart and Ryan Newman. Greg Biffle led 117 of the 367 laps but settled for eighth as Hendrick Motorsports and its affiliated cars took six of the first seven spots.

SPORTS SPOTLIGHT: Mark Osiecki wants Ohio State Hockey back in national spotlight (Part 1)


Ohio State surprisingly announced the selection of their new men’s hockey coach at the Annual Scarlet and Gray spring game. The Ohio State media members who cover the program finally met with him on Tuesday May 4.

Osiecki spent the last six years on the staff of Wisconsin, the 2010 NCAA runner-up, and also has served as head coach and general manager of the Green Bay Gamblers in the United States Hockey League.

A winner at every level, Osiecki has been a part of NCAA (both as a player and coach),  junior hockey, international and professional championship teams.

If first impressions mean anything, the new hockey coach has me sold on his program already and he hasn’t coached a game yet. He has all of the qualifications to be successful here. His dad, Tom Osiecki, is a Minnesota high school coaching legend. He has been an assistant to Dean Blais, the one-time successful North Dakota coach and former Blue Jackets assistant coach and now the head coach at Nebraska-Omaha. Plus he was a part of the successful program at Wisconsin.

He told all of us in the media that he had a nice chat with OSU football coach Jim Tressel who told him “Take care of  the now and slow down a little bit.”

There were a couple of other areas that Coach Osiecki mentioned that was was assuring. He will not come and clean house like most coach usually does. And most of all. eventhough it was stated for the past few years that the Buckeyes play in the massive Value City Arena and that it hurts the program. Osiecki said it is a benefit and can help in landing NHL-caliber recruits. What he and the team have to do is win games and bring excitement and the place will fill-up like it did early in the John Markell era.
