Portage’s Carson Hocevar wins crown jewel Super Late Model race

Carson Hocevar is only 17 years old, but his bucket list is filling up pretty quickly.

The Portage stock car driver has already won three biggies this season when it comes to Super Late Model short-track races across the Midwest, but Hocevar won arguably the biggest of all Sunday afternoon in Winchester, Ind. Hocevar captured the 49th running of the Winchester 400.

Hocevar dominated the race in his No. 71 T.K. Racing/VanDoorn Racing Development Chevrolet. That enabled him to join a list of past winners that includes NASCAR Hall of Fame drivers Rusty Wallace and Mark Martin, along with current stars Kyle Busch, Chase Elliott and Erik Jones, as well as legendary short-track standouts Bob Senneker and Mike Eddy.

“T.K. Racing and VanDoorn Racing Development have been racing the Winchester 400 for years, and to get them their first Winchester 400 is huge for me, especially being the second 400

The makeup artist appeared to be making a joke in a now-deleted tweet that asked:

what race is nikita gonna be today ?

Almost immediately, people started calling her out for her “careless” tweet.

Some people accused Dragun of “blackfishing” – a play on the word “catfishing”, to mean people who edit their photos to appear darker. It’s essentially a form of cultural appropriation and people weren’t happy:

Rajah Caruth, a freshman at WSSU, wins his first Late Model stock car race | WSSU

In addition, Pearson won a Late Model series championship at the track, as did Ralph Earnhardt, the father of NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt. And besides Wallace, current Cup Series drivers Austin Dillon, Joey Logano and William Byron also scored track wins in NASCAR’s lower rungs. 

Caruth was selected for the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Youth Driver Development Program in 2019, the first driver from a majority iRacing background to be picked for the program. He was also chosen for 2020 NASCAR Drive for Diversity Program.

Caruth is majoring in motorsports management at Winston-Salem State with a goal of becoming a NASCAR Cup Series driver.

Sunoco announced this year that it would expand its partnership with Rev Racing and became the full-time sponsor of Caruth’s car.

In August, Rev Racing’s owner, Max Siegel, said that Caruth has been good in his development over the last two years.

“He’s been good for

Stefanik embraces Trump’s style in North Country race against Cobb

GANSEVOORT — At a North Country campaign rally for U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik and other local Republicans on Sept. 26, the line for voters to grab President Donald Trump signs was longer than the queues for all the other candidates’ merchandise combined.
 
When Stefanik, R-Schuylerville, was elected in 2014, she made headlines as the youngest woman at that time elected to Congress and branded herself as a political moderate, joining several moderate and bipartisan legislative groups. She won her 2014 race by more than 20 percentage points despite the district going blue in the six presidential races before then.
 
Then in 2016, the district went for Trump by 14 points; two years later, despite Democrats sweeping many elections across the country, Stefanik won again by just under 14 points. Since then, Stefanik has veered closer to the president, while continuing her often bipartisan work on issues like agriculture, veterans, and

Rajah Caruth wins first career Late Model race

Rev Racing driver Rajah Caruth, 18, earned the first Late Model win of his career Saturday night at historic Greenville-Pickens Speedway in South Carolina.

Caruth piloted his No. 6 Sunoco Toyota into Victory Lane for the first time in what has become a rapidly ascending racing career. His Rev Racing teammates Gracie Trotter — who last week became the first female winner in ARCA Racing history — and Isabella Robusto finished fourth and sixth, respectively.

Growing up a NASCAR fan, Caruth developed into an excellent sim racer on iRacing. He’s a product of the eNASCAR Ignite Series — a grassroots youth racing platform that identifies drivers without access to traditional race tracks around the world.

Caruth was selected for the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Youth Driver Development Program in 2019, the first driver from a majority iRacing background to be picked for the program. He was impressive enough to be

10th CD draws two Democratic women in race for open seat

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) – The next representative of Washington’s 10th congressional district will be a Democratic woman, with voters deciding between two candidates who would each represent a first for the state if elected.

Former Tacoma Mayor Marilyn Strickland would be the first Black member of the state’s congressional delegation, and the first Korean American woman elected to Congress in the country. State Rep. Beth Doglio, who identifies as bisexual, would be the first LGTBQ member of the Washington delegation.

Strickland and Doglio emerged from the state’s top-two primary in August, which drew 19 candidates after Democratic U.S. Rep. Denny Heck announced late last year that he would retire at the end of his current two-year term. Heck, who is now running for lieutenant governor, was the first person elected to the 10th congressional district in 2012 and has served four terms.

Strickland, 58, noted Washington is among more than

My Race Made Me Stand Out In The Fashion Industry, So I Refused To Dress To Fit In

kenya hunt   fashion editor

Some fashion editors are born into a life of inherited 2.55 bags and Saint Laurent blouses. I am not one of them. I’m the child of a beach town in the southeastern US state of Virginia: the land of boardwalks, shopping malls, tie-dye, Abercrombie & Fitch flip flops and Gap jeans. A world away from London, Milan and Paris — New York, even. I didn’t develop a natural knack for styling when adolescence set in. (I wasn’t even voted best dressed at school.) Instead, I grew into my sense of style – and self – slowly, from one geographic move to another.

I’ve spent the vast majority of my life in fashion as an outsider — as in, ‘The American’ and, most often, ‘The Black American’. Rather than try to acclimatise to my surroundings, I leaned into my state of difference. My clothes – which, for a large chunk of
