DOVER, Del. Ryan Braun Jersey . -- Dale Earnhardt Jr. can pick up his pursuit of Matt Kenseth from out front. Earnhardt showed a rare burst of top qualifying speed, turning a track-record lap of 161.849 mph to win the pole Friday at Dover International Speedway. Earnhardt won his second pole of the season, the first time he has multiple poles since 2002. Chase for the Sprint Cup championship drivers filled the top four spots and eight of the top 12. Kenseth, the points leader and winner of the first two Chase races, joins Earnhardt on the front row. Ryan Newman is third and Carl Edwards fourth. Earnhardts run marked the 17th time this season drivers have set qualifying records in the new Gen-6 car. Earnhardt is in 11th place in the 13-driver field. Hes not out of it, but certainly not a legitimate championship contender. He needs a hot streak in the No. 88 Chevrolet -- and for Kenseth and the rest of field to considerably cool. With that option pretty much a long shot, Earnhardt is determined to win at least one race this season. "Id be really disappointed if we dont win a race this season, because I think were a better team than we were last year," he said. "We came close so many times. Wed just like to go out there and get some trophies." No driver has been able to wrest the trophies -- or a lobster -- away from Kenseth. His series-high seven wins, including Chase victories at Chicagoland and New Hampshire, have made Kenseth the favourite to win a second Cup championship. Even Kenseth cant explain his roll since he joined Joe Gibbs Racing. "I dont think Ive ever been on one quite like this," he said. "Ive been enjoying it. You never know what its going to end." Earnhardt and Kenseth will try and keep the rest of the Chase field behind them. Five-time champion Jimmie Johnson starts eighth, Kurt Busch is ninth, Joey Logano 11th, Kevin Harvick 12th, Kyle Busch 14th, Jeff Gordon 16th, Greg Biffle 19th, Kasey Kahne 20th, and Clint Bowyer starts 23rd. Bowyer got the news he wanted since the Richmond scandal when sponsor 5-Hour Energy decided to stick with embattled Michael Waltrip Racing through the 2014 season. Martin Truex Jr., his MWR teammate, is still waiting to find out where hell drive next season. Truex faces an uncertain future after NAPA Auto Parts yanked its sponsorship at the end of the season in the aftermath of MWRs decision to manipulate the outcome of the Sept. 9 race at Richmond. Furniture Row Racing is in the mix for Truex after losing Kurt Busch to Stewart-Haas Racing. General manager Joe Garone said the organization had expressed interest in the veteran driver. "We just need to be patient and see how things shake out," Garone said. Truex, who found out he likely wont need surgery on his broken right wrist, is antsy for a resolution. "Its a lot more complicated because of time," he said. "Theres no, well, wait a few weeks and talk to these people and see what theyre thinking. There is no slow-planning anything. Its, now, now, now. I need answers so I can make decisions. Thats the most difficult thing, putting people in positions where theyve got to make decisions theyre not sure about. I imagine when something happens, it will happen quick." NASCARs credibility was called into question after Richmond, and chairman Brian France ordered drivers to give 100 per cent in new rules prohibiting the artificial altering of events. Drivers have poked fun at the "100 per cent" edict the last two weeks. Asked if the track was simply quick for his qualifying run, Newman laughed and said, "No, I just tried harder." One hundred per cent? "Actually, I was 118 per cent that time," he said. Orlando Arcia Jersey . Roma has a game in hand but now second place is even at risk for the capital side as Napoli moved to within three points with the win. "The result is not always fair," Roma coach Rudi Garcia said. "If we play like this until the end we will win many matches. Scooter Gennett Jersey . Perhaps as important, shes sending a message to 17-year-old gold medal favourite Sara Takanashi of Japan. Iraschko-Stolz relegated Takanashi, who has 10 World Cup victories this season, to second place in two of three training jumps Saturday. http://www.baseballbrewersofficial.com/wily-peralta-jersey-c-13/ . Signs of a turnaround have emerged in this series at Minnesota. Brian Roberts had three doubles and a triple for the first four-extra-base-hit game of his 14-year career, and the Yankees used their bullpen to preserve a 6-5 win over the Twins on Friday.Santa Clara, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Its not the Rose Bowl, or even a New Years Day invite for that matter, but the Stanford Cardinal can at least take solace in having a decided home field advantage for the Foster Farms Bowl on Dec. 30. Stanfords campus is just 11 miles from Levis Stadium, while the underdog Maryland Terrapins will travel some 2,800 miles from coast-to-coast in the first-ever meeting between the programs. The Cardinal had reached four consecutive BCS bowl games before taking a step back this season with a 7-5 record. They won their final two games against California and nationally-ranked UCLA, but not before losing four times to Pac-12 foes. This is the sixth straight bowl game for Stanford, which is 11-13-1 in postseason play. It won the Rose Bowl in 2013 and lost last year in the The Granddaddy of Them All to Michigan State. Defense has once again been the Cardinals calling card. They ranked second nationally in scoring defense (16.0 ppg) and fifth in total defense (287.4 yards/ypg). Its the offense that has prevented them from living up to their preseason expectations, back when they were ranked as high as No. 11. Kevin Hogan regressed in his third full season under center, throwing for just 17 touchdowns with eight interceptions. The senior QB, with plenty of big-game experience under his belt, tossed for a pedestrian 2,603 yards and did not provide much of a spark in the running game with 245 yards. Neither Remound Wright nor Barry Sanders stepped up. Neither player recorded a 100-yard rushing game and combined for just 877 yards. Wright scored eight touchdowns, but six came in the final two games. Stanfords best threat on the offensive side was Ty Montgomery, though he too saw a dip in production from his junior to senior campaign. After catching 10 TD passes in 2013, Montgomery scored three times through the air and totaled 604 yards on 61 catches this year. The playmaker did however, return two punts for scores. The potential NFL draft pick is questionable for the game with a shoulder injury that kept him out of the victory over UCLA. Hes slightly ahead of schedule, Stanford head coach David Shaw said of his star receiver before Christmas. Hes further along than we thought hed be. A defense full of upperclassmen was the linchpin to Stanfords moderate success. Defensive end Henry Anderson and strong safety Jordan Richards, both Pac-12 First Teamers, anchored the stingy line and secondary, respectively. Anderson accounted for 13.5 of the teams 88 tackles for loss and recorded seven sacks. Richards finished with three interceptions and a team-high 52 solo tackles. Marylands first year in the Big Ten started swimmingly, as the Terrapins won four of their first five games. When conference play got going however, the club struggled and alternated wins and losses over its final eight games. A loss to Rutgers in the regular season finale dropped the Terrapins to 7-5 overalll and 4-4 in the Big Ten. Travis Shaw Jersey. C.J. Brown orchestrated an offense that ranked near the bottom of the conference in yards (352.1/game) and may be without leading wide receiver Stefon Diggs for the finale. Brown, already Marylands all-time leader with 57 career touchdowns, needs 213 total offensive yards to pass Scott Milanovich for the most in school history. The senior only averaged 173.6 ypg through the air but displayed his dual- threat ability by gaining a team-best 569 yards on the ground. He accounted for 20 total TDs and threw nine interceptions. His No. 1 target, Diggs, may not dress due to a kidney injury that kept him out the final two games of the regular season. In nine games this year, Diggs caught 52 passes for 654 yards and five scores. Deon Long will have to step up if Diggs sits out, and he has shown the ability to do so by hauling in 49 passes for 554 yards and two TDs. Brandon Ross and Wes Brown split carries out of the backfield, as the two have combined for 798 yards and nine scores. When the Terps got in the red zone they usually came away with points, scoring on 88.9 percent of their possessions, which ranks 19th in the country. It was a Jekyll-and-Hyde season for Marylands defense. In seven wins, the defense surrendered just 17.9 ppg, but the five losses saw the opposition light up the scoreboard to the tune of 44.4 ppg. The defense is also getting carved up for 438.1 ypg. Cornerback William Likely was one of the few bright spots as he made conference First-Team honors thanks to six interceptions, two of which the sophomore returned for touchdowns. Linebacker Cole Farrand finished tied for third in the Big Ten in tackles, averaging 9.2 per game, while Andre Monroe enters his final game tied with Mike Corvino (1979-1982) for the most sacks in Maryland history. The senior upped his total to 24 in his career with 9.5 this year. Maryland may have the nod in special teams as it boasts the Lou Groza Award winner in Brad Craddock. Craddock was named the nations top kicker by making all but one of his 19 attempts. The Terps reached a bowl game last season following a two-year absence and lost to Marshall in the Military Bowl, which dropped its record to 11-12-2 in the postseason. They actually made this trip back when it was called the Emerald Bowl in 2007 and lost to Oregon State. This is a great opportunity for our team to play in Levis Stadium and experience all of the special events that the bowl game and the city of San Francisco have to offer, Maryland head coach Randy Edsall said. It will be a well-deserved reward for our student-athletes for their commitment to our program. Stanford appears to have the advantage here given the proximity of the stadium to its campus and its recent success in bowl games. Maryland though, has won five road games this year and may be catching a Cardinal squad still reeling from its worst regular season since 2009.
