Two of Australias motorsport icons believe Shane van Gisbergen will be a multiple Supercars champion.But Mark Skaife and Jim Richards warn it wont be easy in the face of rising stars, hungry veterans and his own personal demons.Van Gisbergen claimed his first title at the season-ending Sydney 500 at the weekend, 10 years after making his debut in the series.His switch from the family-run Tekno Autosports to Holden powerhouse Triple Eight - backed by Red Bull - proved fruitful in his first year, beating teammate and six-time champion Jamie Whincup.Skaife, once critical of van Gisbergens inconsistency, said his new team had mentored him well.In Triple Eight hes clearly competitive week in, week out, the five-time champion told AAP.Is he fast enough? Yes. Is he totally focused and committed? Absolutely yes. Has he been able to put the year together? Yes.So theres no reason why he wont win again.Richards, the winner of four Australian touring car titles and the last Kiwi victor before van Gisbergen in 1991, agrees.He may win one or two more. He may even decide to go overseas and ply his trade in the GT series over there and go do bigger and better things. Who knows? Richards told AAP.But both acknowledge it will be a mighty feat.They predict Whincup will be fired up to win an unprecedented seventh title after missing out the past two seasons, and with young star Scott McLaughlin on another level once he switches to DJR Team Penske.Theres also Fords Mark Winterbottom, last years champion, and 2010 champion James Courtney.Itll be very very hard because the competition is so tough at the front, Richards said.Skaife flagged motivation and fatigue as another hurdle for van Gisbergen, who dabbles in other categories in his spare time.Hes driving lots of cars, which is fantastic, but at some stage that has a bearing on your level of effort, he said.Its almost like fuelling the fuel tank. At the moment I reckon hes full and hes driving very well, but its very easy for the level of workload and the demands to tax you.What hes got to be conscious of is coming out again in 2017 fresh and invigorated.Van Gisbergen on Sunday night recommitted to Supercars for the foreseeable future and was preparing for a Whincup onslaught.Jamie was really fast in a lot of races this year so I need to pick up my game, he said.Now that Ive found some consistency, Ive got to search for speed again.

ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Suspended Oakland Raiders pass rusher Aldon Smith met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Friday in hopes of being reinstated from his substance-abuse ban.A person with knowledge of the meeting said Smith sat down with the commissioner and other league staff to make his case to be allowed back on the field following his yearlong suspension for violating rules on substance abuse.The person spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press because the reinstatement process is confidential. There is no timeline for when or if Smith will be reinstated.NFL Media first reported the meeting.Smith was suspended for one year in November 2015 for violating the substance-abuse policy. That stemmed from an arrest in August on charges of drunken driving, hit-and-run, and vandalism, which led to his release by the San Francisco 49ers. That was Smiths fifth run-in with the law since joining the NFL as a first-round pick by San Francisco in 2011.Smith signed with Oakland in September 2015 and played nine games before being suspended for a second time by the NFL.Smith also missed the first nine games of the 2014 season while serving an NFL suspension for violations of the leagues substance-abuse and personal-conduct policies. He missed time during the 20133 season to undergo treatment at an inpatient facility following his DUI arrest that September.ddddddddddddSmith also reportedly entered a treatment center this summer after video linked to his Periscope account showed possible marijuana use.Despite his problems, the Raiders signed Smith to a two-year contract in April. They have been unable to have direct contact with him during the suspension but have kept tabs on him through his agent.Smith had been a key part of Oaklands defense last season, providing another pass rushing threat to go along with All-Pro Khalil Mack. Smith had just 3 1/2 sacks in nine games, but did provide 36 quarterback pressures, according to Pro Football Focus, and was stout against the run.Despite adding free agent Bruce Irvin in the offseason to fill Smiths role, Oakland (10-3) is tied for 23rd in the NFL with 22 sacks and is giving up a league-worst 6.2 yards per play.Smith has been one of the leagues best pass rushers when available, with 47 1/2 sacks in 59 career games. But he has played just 16 games over the past three seasons.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
