The duo seemed to draft on the top and gain on the leader every lap. Brandon Czarapata made his way around Zach Spangenberg mid-race and the trio started reeling in Karcz. FRANCIS CREEK, Wis. (July 27) – Greg Gretz held off a hard-charging Josh Long to claim the IMCA Modified feature win Saturday at 141 Speedway. It was his first win of the season. With two laps remaining, Karcz, Dix and Czarapata went three-wide for the race lead. Dix and Czarapata split Karcz and make it a drag race over the final 1/3-mile. They stayed even until Dix got hard on the gas off of turn four and found just enough to beat Czarapata to the line. Long got to the second spot only to see the leader using a perfect line. Long searched high and low around the 1/3 mile but could never find enough to get past. Last-lap excitement followed with Tom Schneider and the Karl Kustoms Northern SportMods getting their turn. Larry Karcz Jr. started off up front and looked to have his night all planned out in victory lane. Unfortunately for Karcz, Rick Dix decided not to settle for third. Dix ran the bottom in the early stages but decided to go out of line with Todd Augustian and make a charge back to the front after losing spots early. Schneider stayed with Cory Kemkes until the white flag lap, then put his racer in to position with a power move inside the leader off turn two. Schneider grabbed the lead and picked up the win on the final circuit. By Greg Aregoni Schneider had been knocking off positions but looked to have been running out of laps while excitement continued up front. He got his chance and took advantage. Gretz started up front and his racer was on point for 20 straight laps as he never relinquished the lead, while Long started ninth and quickly worked his way through the field. An instant classic, as they say in the sports world, is what the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature brought to the table.

“We had him ready to run in the Coronation Cup (at Epsom). We were very happy with him and he just tweaked a muscle in his side so he had a nice break after that, but he’s back and has been working away,” the Ballydoyle trainer told At The Races. “He worked nicely the last day he was away. It is very possible he will start in the Foy with a view, if all goes well, of going back to the Arc. “I’m very happy where we are with him at the moment.” Magician is another of O’Brien’s star four-year-olds and his main objective is to bid to repeat last season’s triumph in the Breeders’ Cup Turf. “He’s back in full work. He came back from America in good shape,” he said. “Obviously he’s in the Irish Champion and all those races. He’s building up to the Irish Champions weekend but if he doesn’t run he’ll go away for a work and then come back again. “We have one eye on the Breeders’ Cup Turf with him and that’s where he could finish up at the end of the year. We’ll see what he does in between then.” Press Association Ruler Of The World could make his return to action in the Prix Foy as trainer Aidan O’Brien eyes a second crack at the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. Last year’s Investec Derby hero was only seventh to Treve in the Longchamp feature and has not raced since disappointing in the Dubai World Cup at Meydan in March. A setback in the summer meant Ruler Of The World could not run in the Coronation Cup back at Epsom but O’Brien reports the colt to be 100% again now and the Foy on September 14 has been pencilled in.

IOWA CITY — January is typically the worst of the peak months for the flu in Iowa and health officials warn things are shaping up for a particularly severe season for the flu and other respiratory viruses.Dr. Melanie Wellington, an epidemiologist at the University of Iowa Hospitals, says they’re concerned because the southern hemisphere had a bad flu season. “We use that as an indicator to predict what’s going to happen during our flu season and it suggests that the flu season could be a bad one,” Wellington says, “but that is not a science.”Iowans are being advised to watch out for what’s called respiratory syncytial virus, or R-S-V. Symptoms are similar to the common cold, but it can cause severe illness — or even death — in young infants, the elderly and those with compromised immune systems. Wellington says, “You should seek medical attention if you have a cold this year, where it’s simply not getting better, where your breathing rate goes very high, where someone’s struggling to breathe, grunting or having troubles with their oxygen levels.”R-S-V affects between ten and 20-percent of the state’s population each year. Wellington says the best way to prevent R-S-V is by regularly washing your hands. She notes, it’s still not too late to get a flu shot. While flu cases often show up during October and November, the peak months are December through February, though cases are sometimes reported as late as May.
