VINTON, Iowa – Another chapter in IMCA Modified history will be written on Sunday, when the Speed Shift TV Dirt Knights Tour comes to Benton County Speedway. Braaksma owns the distinction of having won tour features in three different states, Park Jefferson Speedway in South Dakota, Buena Vista Raceway in Iowa and Fairmont Raceway in Minnesota. Sunday’s race will be the 10th tour event held at Vinton since 2011. Most of the previous events were mid-May or Memorial Weekend openers; the upcoming race was rescheduled from May 25. The 100th event in tour history will be held at Vinton, the track where the IMCA Modified division first raced more than 40 years ago. Winner of three of the first six Dirt Knights events this season, Ethan Braaksma is poised to become the 11th different champion in as many years the tour has been held.
Jamaica’s Sunshine Girls crushed Caribbean neighbors Barbados, to win their fourth straight game in Pool A of the Commonwealth Games in Australia on Monday.Playing at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Center, the powerhouses stamped their authority on the contest from early to come away with a 76-32 victory.While the result kept the Sunshine Girls unbeaten in the competition, it represented the second defeat for the Barbadians, who suffered a similar hammering in their opening game to hosts and world champions Australia.Jamaica were spearheaded by goal shooter Jhaniele Fowler-Reid who scored 32 from 36 attempts while Romelda Aiken shot 28 from 33, in her time also at goal shooter.Goal attack Shanice Beckford supported with 12 goals from 14 attempts.Barbados were never given the chance to get going and goal shooter Latonia Blackman was limited to 17 from 19 attempts.Jamaica wasted little in charging to a 22-9 lead at the first quarter, an advantage which they converted into a 39-15 half-time lead to put the contest virtually out of sight.It was more of the same in the third quarter as the Jamaicans outscored Barbados 18-7 to lead 57-22 at the start of the final stanza, and they pressed home their advantage down the stretch to close out strongly.Jamaica’s biggest test will come on Wednesday when they clash with the Aussies in their final outing of the preliminaries.Barbados, meanwhile, take on Northern Ireland on Tuesday before wrapping up their preliminary campaign against South Africa on Wednesday.

MORE: Live odds and betting news2020 LCS Spring Split Week 9: Team SoloMid vs. 100 ThievesTeam SoloMid -157100 Thieves +126There isn’t a more bipolar team in North America than Team SoloMid. When TSM are on, they can beat anyone in the region. They are the only team to deal Cloud9 a loss this season, and they have talented players at every position in their lineup. TSM have been inconsistent, though, and that led to an embarrassing loss against last-place Counter Logic Gaming and being on the wrong end of a sweep against Immortals.While TSM are up and down, they should have the edge over 100 Thieves on Saturday. 100 Thieves are only 8-8 because of some hard-carry performances from top-laner Ssumday, and while mid-laner Ryoma has improved significantly over the course of the split, he is no match for TSM’s Bjergsen. As long as Broken Blade doesn’t get steam rolled in the top lane, TSM should pick up the win.2020 LCS Spring Split Week 9: Cloud9 vs. Evil GeniusesCloud9 -278Evil Geniuses +212Over the past three weeks, Evil Geniuses have put it all together. They have won five straight games to move into a three-way tie for second place, and their bottom lane has been excellent. After a few hiccups early on, Bang and Zeyzal have formed one of the best bottom-lane duos in the LCS, and that is the primary win condition for EG.No one knows what we’ll see from Cloud9 during the final week of the regular season. They locked up the No. 1 seed three weeks ago, and we saw a standard game and a not-so standard game from them last week. If they are focused and play a standard game, they will likely beat Evil Geniuses, but they are wont to have a little fun since this is the last week of the regular season. I’m guessing we’ll see some off-meta picks from them akin to Kalista top lane, and that makes EG the play at this price.2020 LCS Spring Split Week 9: Team Liquid vs. FlyQuestTeam Liquid -127FlyQuest -103How the mighty have fallen. Liquid was an odds-on favorite to win the LCS Spring Split before the start of the season after bringing back four of five starters and improving in the jungle with the addition of Broxah. However, they are on the verge of completely missing the playoffs, as they have dealt with complacency throughout the Spring Split. Doublelift has not been as reliable as he usually is in the bottom lane, and Impact is not the rock in the top lane he has been for this team over the past few years.Liquid knocked off FlyQuest in the first meeting between these teams back on Feb. 2, and they should emerge victorious once again with their playoff hopes on the line. FlyQuest are in a bit of disarray with Solo replacing V1per in the top lane last week, and the only player that has consistently played well is mid-laner PowerOfEvil.2020 LCS Spring Split Week 9: Golden Guardians vs. Counter Logic GamingGolden Guardians -160Counter Logic Gaming +127The Guardians’ slim playoff hopes ride on them going 2-0 in the final week of the regular season. They have not inspired confidence with their play over the past month though, posting a 2-6 record with their only victories coming against Dignitas and Immortals. Their bottom lane has been a mess as they continue to try to play non-supports at support, so CLG have a decent chance of pulling off the upset despite their poor campaign. 2020 LCS Spring Split Week 9: Immortals vs. DignitasImmortals -160Dignitas +127Reuniting Apollo and Hakuho has made Immortals much stronger than when Altec was paired with Hakuho in the bottom lane. Apollo has an 8.2 KDA in six games, and he has become the hard carry for this team. That’s something they’ve needed as the other positions have struggled to make an impact with their play.Dignitas continue to underperform. It’s becoming clear that Huni is no longer the top-lane bully he once was in this region, and the bottom lane has fallen off after some strong performances early in the split. Froggen can be a difference maker if he is allowed to select Orianna, but don’t expect Immortals to leave the champion open. We only know two things headed into the final week of the 2020 LCS Spring Split: Cloud9 is guaranteed to finish as the No. 1 overall seed with a dazzling 15-1 record (though they’re not necessarily a great bet at their current odds), and Counter Logic Gaming will finish at the bottom of the standings with a 3-13 mark. The other eight North American teams have between six and nine wins, so most games this week will have an impact on how the final standings and playoff matchups shake out.The big story this week is whether Team Liquid will qualify for the playoffs. The winners of the past four LCS titles are currently a game behind 100 Thieves and Immortals for the final spot in the Spring Split Playoffs, and they face the top two teams in the LCS this weekend in FlyQuest and Cloud9.
