(Photo by Bruce Badgley, Motorsports Photog­raphy)NEW WAVERLY, Texas – Before the start of his first IMCA Modified season, Ryan Slott would have been happy with a single feature win in 2017.When the final checkers flew, he had four wins and Razor Chassis South Central Region rookie of the year honors to show for his efforts.“The class is just taking off around here. It looked like fun and I decided I wanted to do it,” said Slott, from New Waverly, Texas, and now a junior at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville majoring in agricultural engineering. “It was challenging at first. The hardest thing was definitely setup but I slowly got better.”Slott had raced a factory stock class, which he said was comparable to an IMCA Sunoco Stock Car, for five years before moving into the Modified.He got his first win in the sanctioned division in just his fourth start, at Gator Motorplex, and ended his night in victory lane three starts later at Cotton Bowl Speedway.“After the early season play dates, I didn’t think I’d win at all this year but I had a lot of help from a lot of people who steered me in the right direction,” he said. “I was surprised to get my first win so soon but the highlight had to be the win at Cotton Bowl. There were some really fast cars there that night.”He also had a couple wins at Bronco Motor Speedway, where Slott ended fifth in points.Starts-28Wins-4Additional Top Fives-3 HIS CREW: Father Ignatius and brother Rob.HIS SPONSORS: Slott’s Machine and B & R Productions, both of New Waverly.last_img read more

Women’s Euro 2013: Germans win sixth straight European title

first_imgGermany goalkeeper Nadine Angerer saved two penalties to help her side clinch the European Championship for the sixth successive time.The captain denied Norway’s Trine Ronning and Solveig Gulbrandsen in each half in the Stockholm final.German substitute Anja Mittag scored the only goal of the game, finishing off a fine passing move.Silvia Neid’s Germany had to defend stoutly in the second period but have now won every tournament since 1993.With a host of players absent through injury, Germany, with just six goals in six games in the tournament, have been far from dominant in Sweden.But their youthfulness suggests they have a sound basis for yet another defence in four years.Norway goalkeeper Ingrid Hjelmseth pushed on to the bar from a Nadine Kessler header inside the first minute and Germany striker Celia da Mbabi glanced wide from a Dzsenifer Marozsan corner. Winners against Germany in the group phase, Norway were handed a fine chance to take the lead just before the half hour when Cathrine Dekkerhus went down in the area under minimal contact from Da Mbabi in the area, earning a penalty.But Ronning tried to thump the spot-kick down the middle and Angerer saved with her legs.Shortly after the interval, a sweeping move down the left saw Da Mbabi clip the ball across for Mittag, who had only been on the pitch for three minutes, to put the Germans in front.Norway were given a second opportunity from the spot when Caroline Hansen was tripped by Jennifer Cramer but Angerer, who saved a penalty in German’s World Cup final win over Brazil in 2007, got a hand to Gulbrandsen’s effort to preserve her team’s lead.As Norway pressed, Ada Hegerberg had a strike correctly ruled out for offside before Kessler hit the post for the Germans in the closing stages.last_img read more

Your Shoulds Are Really Musts

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 3rd book: Eat Their Lunch “The first ever playbook for B2B salespeople on how to win clients and customers who are already being serviced by your competition.” Buy Now Most of your “shoulds” are really “musts.” And most of your “musts” are really “shoulds.”You think you “should” nurture your dream clients. You believe that you “must” live in your inbox, waiting to respond or react to whatever other people request of you. You have this backwards. You “must” nurture your dream clients. You should check your inbox a couple of times a day.You think that you “should” be prospecting. You believe that you must spend time on social media sites during working hours, even though you are really only consuming content. You have these exactly backwards. You “must” prospect. You should limit the time you spend on consuming content.Your brain is constantly nagging you that you “should” follow up with the clients and prospects you visited this week. And while you’re at it, your mind reminds you that you should follow up on all your leads. You believe that you must respond to the RFP that showed up unsolicited and that you have no business responding to, least of all since the due date is three weeks from now. You “must” follow up—if you are to succeed in sales. You should avoid things that look like work but produce no real outcomes.If you believe that you should do something, that “should” is more likely a “must.” One of the keys to success is to know what is really a “must” and what is a “should,” and then doing everything that “must” be done.last_img read more
