LONG POND, Pa. -- Chris Buescher has spent 2016 living a season to forget.What was there to remember? That scary flip at Talladega amid several hard wrecks in restrictor-plate events? He spent the first 20 weeks with no top-10 finishes while driving cars that obviously needed work; he had failed to qualify in the top 20 all year.Through it all, Buescher persevered, in many ways with performances that justified his being under the radar, except when his car went airborne at Talladega.Funny thing is, what was under the radar allowed Buescher to have a day to remember Monday in the Pennsylvania 400 to earn his first career Sprint Cup win.Buescher, 22, had to wait 80 minutes after NASCAR declared a red flag for fog Monday afternoon at Pocono Raceway. With threats of severe weather and no lifting of the fog, NASCAR decided to end the race with just over 21 laps remaining.Buescher was one of two drivers -- third-place Regan Smith was the other -- who had not yet made a final pit stop when the fog forced NASCAR to throw the caution on Lap 132 and then the red flag just before the drivers came to the line to complete Lap 139.Everyone else had to pit for fuel or assumed the race would go longer. They could see rain a little further out but couldnt predict the under-the-radar fog.So a quiet driver ended up in a quiet Victory Lane in a garage since NASCAR couldnt use the real Victory Lane because of the threat of lightning. It was a somewhat appropriate venue for a feel-good story for a driver who seems to savor getting behind the wheel and competing, whether hes running for 20th or for the lead.This is going to stir up our whole year. ... Its not going to [sink in] for a while, Buescher said of the win, which came in his 27th career Sprint Cup start. It doesnt even feel real right now. Its so quiet in here. Were not even in the real Victory Lane. Were having to seek shelter. It was a pretty wild event.The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook had Buescher at 1,000-to-1 to win the race. He is the first rookie to win a Cup race since Joey Logano did it in 2009.I hope somebody bet on us and made out really well, Buescher said. It would be awesome for them. We faced pretty steep odds coming into this one. ... You take advantage of every situation thats presented to you, and thats what we did today.The win could put Buescher in the Chase for the Sprint Cup, as he sits six points behind 30th-place David Ragan in the Sprint Cup standings. A driver has to be in the top 30 to qualify for the Chase via a race victory. Ragan posted the first Front Row Motorsports victory at Talladega Superspeedway in May 2013, and now Buescher has the second.Were in the hunt, Buescher said. We can definitely handle this now. We can get into this Chase now. Well go do it the same way weve been doing. ... Weve been heading in the right direction.While Buescher pulled off the upset, many in the garage will see it as a just victory in the racing world. Buescher is well-respected not only for winning the 2015 Xfinity Series title but also because he took the chance to get Sprint Cup experience knowing he would drive for an underfunded, underdog team that likely would produce few top-10s, let alone victories.The key [for young drivers] is to make the most of your opportunities, said second-place finisher Brad Keselowski. Chris is a master of that. He makes the most out of each and every opportunity.Thats going to take him a long ways in his career.Buescher had to take something of a sidestep in his career this year. After winning the Xfinity Series title for Roush Fenway Racing in 2015, Buescher was set to defend that title this year when Roush did a deal with Front Row Motorsports to loan Buescher -- and crew chief Bob Osborne -- to Front Row for 2016.Buescher won on a day when two of the youngest stars of the Sprint Cup Series -- Austin Dillon and Kyle Larson -- battled side by side for the lead and appeared to have the best pit strategy early in the race.Congratulations to [Buescher], said Dillon, who has raced Buescher in the Xfinity Series. Its a little frustrating for all of us who were up there. It will be a blessing for him. Hes a great guy. He deserves anything that hes got coming to him.I just wish it was us. Given the situation, it was a heartbreaker.Larson and Dillon, both in their third year of Sprint Cup racing, are still looking for a first career win. The same is true for rookie Chase Elliott, who has had the best points season of any rookie.After the race was red-flagged, Elliott went over to Buescher.I stopped by and told him I was pulling for him, Elliott said just before the race was ruled official. It would be really cool. Hes a good racer. Hes deserving of a good opportunity and I think it would be neat to see him get a win.Buescher obviously thought it was neat. It was a great victory for him and Osborne, a former crew chief for Carl Edwards.Hes a good kid and an Xfinity champion, said three-time Sprint Cup champion Tony Stewart during the NBCSN telecast. It doesnt matter how you get your first win, you just want to get your first win.

Adidas Nmd Herre Sort . PETERSBURG, Fla. Adidas Nmd Dame Udsalg MOSCOW -- Maria Sharapovas ban for taking the banned substance meldonium has been reduced from two years to 15 months.Although the drug led to a spate of positive tests from dozens of athletes, mostly in Eastern Europe, when it was banned for 2016, Sharapova is the only athlete serving a ban.Here are some of the key issues surrounding meldonium:---Q: What is meldonium?A: A Latvian-made drug available over the counter in Russia and other Eastern European and ex-Soviet countries, often without a prescription. The drugs manufacturer, Grindeks, says it is mostly aimed at people with heart conditions, though it can also be used for physical and psycho-emotional overload in otherwise healthy people. Meldoniums inventor, chemist Ivars Kalvins, has said it was given to Soviet soldiers fighting in Afghanistan to boost their stamina. However, Grindeks and Kalvins argue it shouldnt be banned in sports, with the manufacturer saying that it cannot improve athletic performance, but it can stop tissue damage during intense exercise. Sharapova said she took meldonium for a decade for reasons including a magnesium deficiency, family history of diabetes and dizziness. Meldonium is usually known by the brand name mildronate, though other names have been used.---Q: How was it banned?A: The World Anti-Doping Agency said in September 2015 that meldonium would be banned as of Jan. 1, 2016, and published information on its website. A study conducted at the European Games in June 2015 and later published by the British Journal of Sports Medicine found 66 of 762 athletes taking meldonium, which the authors called excessive and inappropriate use ... in a generally heathy athlete poppulation.dddddddddddd After WADAs announcement, the International Tennis Federation notified players of changes to the list of banned substances by e-mail and using a wallet card distributed at tournaments, though CAS ruled Tuesday that this was inadequate. Sharapova tested positive at the Australian Open in January and said she was not aware meldonium had been banned.---Q: Who else tested positive?A: After meldonium was banned, there were more than 170 failed tests by athletes, almost all from Eastern European countries, including Olympic medalists in sports ranging from figure skating to wrestling. Heavyweight boxer Alexander Povetkin of Russia saw his world title challenge called off after a failed test for meldonium.---Q: What happened to athletes who tested positive?A: Almost all of the cases were dropped when athletes insisted they had stopped taking meldonium in 2015, before it was banned. The usually low concentrations of the drug in their samples backed up that argument, and WADA accepted findings of no fault or negligence in those cases. WADA also admitted it hadnt known enough about how long it took meldonium to leave an athletes system. Sharapovas case was not dropped because she had continued taking meldonium after it was banned and the concentration in her sample was comparatively high.---Q: What next?A: WADA confirmed last week that meldonium remains on the banned list for 2017. WADAs grace period for athletes who tested positive for low doses expired Friday, so any amount of the drug now triggers a positive test. ' ' '
