first_imgBy Lonnie Wheatley DODGE CITY, Kan. (Aug. 23) – Clay Money stepped up to the occasion by racing to a $1,000 victory in Saturday night’s Inaugural 30-lap IMCA SportMod Mayhem feature event atop the 3/8-mile Dodge City Raceway Park clay oval.The high school junior from Penokee, Kan., battled past Kameron Gruber for the lead on the 14th lap then kept reigning track champion Jeff Kaup at bay over the final 10 circuits to secure his second feature win of the season at DCRP over a stout field of 33 competitors. With Money gridding the Sport Modified Mayhem main event outside the third row, Gruber outgunned Michael Shenberger to snare the early lead from the pole position. Money made his way to third behind Gruber and Angel Munoz by the time the first caution flew after four laps and then took second from Munoz on the eighth circuit. Money wasted little time closing the gap on Gruber in short order and began pressuring for the point, finally squeezing underneath in turn three on the 14th round to edge into the lead.Following a caution at the midway point, Kaup slipped by Gruber and set his sights on Money for the point. Money’s 10 car-length advantage dwindled down to just a couple of car-lengths with five laps to go. But Money picked up the pace in the final handful of laps, opening the advantage back to 10 car-lengths by the time the checkered flag flew.Kaup settled for second with Daniel Gottschalk taking command of third on the 20th round when Brandon Smith looped it in turn four and held it the rest of the way.

DONEGAL LOCKSMITH WARNS OLD DETERRENTS NO LONGER WORK

first_imgA leading locksmith has warned that people need to update their locks and security systems.Statistics released show that there have been 461 burglaries across Donegal over the past twelve months.Conal Kelly of CK Locksmiths in Letterkenny says previous ways of warding or thieves no longer work. “Sadly, the days of leaving a hallway light on as an effective deterrent for thieves are gone,” he cautions.Conal says that there are a number of cost-effective and simple steps a home owner can take to reduce the risk of a break-in, including fitting good quality door and window locks or installing a secure safe to protect cash and other valuables kept at home.“Burglars are opportunistic. Many properties have weak door locks and poor security precautions. When an opportunistic burglar comes across an insecure property, someone’s going to have a bad day,” he says. The cost can often run to thousands of euro, while the impact on victims’ lives can be much worse.CK Locksmiths can be contacted on 074 91 22094.  DONEGAL LOCKSMITH WARNS OLD DETERRENTS NO LONGER WORK was last modified: January 29th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:burglaryCK Locksmithlast_img read more
