    TALLADEGA, Ala. Julién Davenport Texans Jersey . -- A group decision for all of the cars powered by Earnhardt Childress engines to work together at Talladega Superspeedway proved the correct call in NASCARs new knockout qualifying format. Richard Childress Racing drivers and their affiliates swept the first three rows on the starting grid for Sundays race, with the pole going to Brian Scott, who will lead the field to the green flag in just his fifth career Sprint Cup Series start. "Who would have thought that, huh?" Scott asked after Saturdays qualifying session. Cars with ECR engines took six of the 12 spots in the third and final round of knockout qualifying, and they all waited patiently on pit road for someone to make a move. It came with roughly 2 minutes, 20 seconds remaining in the 5-minute session, when all 12 drivers made their way onto the track. Tony Stewart posted the fastest lap as he worked with the other three Stewart-Haas Racing drivers, and as the clock neared the final buzzer, it appeared the three-time NASCAR champion had the pole locked up. Then came the ECR pack of cars, with Ryan Newman leading, Scott somewhere in the middle and Paul Menard bringing up the rear. Team owner Childress had designated Newman as the driver to decide when the pack should go, and Menard was charged with pushing them along. Just as time expired, the entire group shot past Stewarts speed and moved to the top of the leaderboard. It was Scott on the pole, followed by Menard and then AJ Allmendinger, an RCR-affiliated driver. Casey Mears, also an affiliated driver, qualified fourth and was followed by Daytona 500 pole-sitter Austin Dillon and Newman. "It was just a great plan by RCR, getting all the RCR alliance cars working together," Allmendinger said. "We worked on that (in practice) and felt like we all had great speed. Ryan was the guinea pig for all of us and timed it right, and that last session, it was just basically who was going to wait the longest to go out there." It was the first time NASCAR has used its new knockout format on a restrictor-plate track in the Sprint Cup Series. Daytona 500 qualifying in February was done with traditional single-car runs. "The qualifying format, I think there are good tracks for it and bad tracks for it, and this is definitely a great track for it," Menard said. "We had a plan and we tried to stick to the plan as best we could. Ryan, we put the burden on him to decide when to go and where to go, and the rest of us held it in line. ECR top-six and RCR cars all up there is pretty exciting." Now Scott gets to show what hes made of on one of NASCARs fastest tracks. A Nationwide Series regular, hes got three previous starts this season and finished 25th in the Daytona 500. "Ive got that dreaded yellow (rookie) stripe on the bumper, and thats going to make people run away from me like the plague," Scott said of finding drafting partners on Sunday. Stewart wound up 12th in the final session after it appeared he had the pole locked up. SHR put all four of its cars in the final round, and Danica Patrick earned the highest starting spot at seventh. Joey Logano, meanwhile, failed to advance into the final round of qualifying for the first time this season. Hed made it through all three rounds in eight previous sessions. He qualified 16th. "Its not by a good car or not, its just by strategy," Logano said. "We put a lot of work and effort into keeping that streak alive. Its unfortunate." Deshaun Watson Texans Jersey .m.

Julién Davenport Youth Jersey . -- Billy Donovans bench came up big, bailing out top-seeded Florida in a tight game against what was supposed to be an overmatched opponent.( - The Chicago Blackhawks will attempt to avoid losing three games in a row for the first time this season as they host the struggling Arizona Coyotes on Tuesday night at United Center. The Blackhawks opened up a four-game homestand last weekend with a win over Minnesota, but then dropped consecutive contests to Winnipeg and Dallas for their first two-game slide since Nov. 1-2. Chicago was downed 6-3 by the Stars on Sunday despite a pair of goals from Brandon Saad and one by Patrick Kane. Saad has five goals over his past four games. Brent Seabrook assisted on two goals and Corey Crawford struggled in allowing five tallies on 33 shots faced. We didnt commit ourselves to playing the right type of game, Chicago captain Jonathan Toews said. We played hard and we played well at times, where we sustained the pressure and controlled the play, but then we had lapses where we were giving up 2-on-1s. Chicago is tied with Winnipeg for third in the Central Division with 58 points, four back of second-place St. Louis. The Blackhawks begin a seven-game road trip on Wednesday against Pittsburgh and will be without forward Daniel Carcillo for the next six games as he serves a suspension for a cross-check to Jets forward Mathieu Perreault on Friday. Perreault suffered a broken arm on the play. Carcillo did not play on Sunday as he waived his right to an in-person hearing prior to a phone hearing on Monday. Carcillo comes up from behind and cross-checks Perreault in the left arm, causing an injury. This is not a hockey play. It has nothing to do with the puck, and the blow is delivered after the whistle has blown the play dead. Because the whistle has blown, Perreault has no reason to suspect he will be hit and therefore cannot protect himself, noted Stephane Quintal, league head of player safety, in a video explanation of his ruling. The Coyotes ccome in having matched a season high with five straight losses, including a 4-3 shootout setback to the Jets on Sunday. Deshaun Watson Womens Jersey. It did mark the first time that Arizona gained a point on this skid. Winnipeg led 3-1 in the third period, but Lauri Korpikoski scored on the power play with 6:39 left in regulation and Tobias Rieder tipped home a shot with 3:50 on the clock to tie the game. The Jets Bryan Little, though, scored in the third round for the lone shootout tally as Shane Doan failed to extend the tiebreaker. Still, Arizona notched a point for the first time this season when trailing after two periods (0-17-1). I like the way we hung around the game, said Coyotes head coach Dave Tippett. Doan had a pair of assists in his return after missing two straight with a lower-body injury, but forward Mikkel Boedker sustained an upper-body injury during the game and has been deemed week-to-week with the ailment. Boedker leads the Coyotes with 14 goals this season. Oliver Ekman-Larsson, who also scored versus the Jets, is second on Arizona with 12 tallies, putting him in a four-way tie for the league lead among defensemen. Arizona has lost the first two of an eight-game road trip and will try to avoid dropping six in a row for the first time since a seven-game skid from March 29-April 12 of last season. Mike Smith, who made 27 saves in the loss to the Jets, is 6-4-1 in his career versus the Blackhawks, posting a solid 2.72 goals against average, .919 save percentage and three shutouts in 11 meetings (10 starts). With Chicago also in action on Wednesday, Antti Raanta is expected to start in net tonight for the Blackhawks and he beat Arizona the only other time he faced them, halting 32-of-34 shots faced. These two clubs are meeting for the first time this season, with the Blackhawks having won four of the past six encounters overall.
