RIR to host playoff race in 2018

Track also returning spring race to evening time slot
For the first time in its history, Richmond International Raceway next year will host playoff races in both of NASCAR's top two series, track officials announced May 23.

The track will host a NASCAR Xfinity Series playoff race Sept. 21, 2018 and a Monster Energy Cup Series playoff race the following day. (The Monster Energy Cup Series is the highest level of NASCAR competition.)

RIR also will move its spring Monster Energy Cup Series race – which has been held on Sunday afternoon the past two years – back to Saturday night, on April 21. RIR previously had hosted night races since 1991 but moved the spring race to the afternoon in an attempt to attract more families. But attendance at least month's race was one of the lowest in recent memory.

Athlete of the Week – May 8: Strib Walker

Collegiate, varsity boys' lacrosse
The Collegiate Cougars, at 20-0, have had many vital moments in the quest for an undefeated season. One of the closest calls came against Paul VI on April 23. The teams were tied, playing in sudden-death double overtime. Senior captain Strib Walker, 18, scored the game-winning goal.

Although this may have been the biggest goal of the season, Walker downplayed the drama of it all. “I was just the lucky guy who got to finish the game with the goal,” he said. “Our defense- they were the ones killing it.”

Although he plays midfield, Walker said he gets most excited during games when he sees the Collegiate defense gelling.

Athlete of the Week – May 1: Cierra Turner

Highland Springs High School, varsity girls' tennis
Cierra Turner began playing tennis in sixth grade, when her mother told her she had to pick up a school sport. The only two options were basketball and tennis. She doesn’t like basketball, so tennis became her main sport by default.

This year, the 16 year-old Highland Springs High School sophomore has gone 6-3, and said she has learned a great deal about herself on the tennis court. She said that she has become aware of how her speed can help her win matches. “Most people can’t run back and forth and side to side as much as I can,” she said.

She also has found herself getting mentally tougher.

Athlete of the Week – April 24: Brooke Carter

Varina High School, varsity girls' soccer

Brooke Carter had not won a soccer game in more than two years. But on April 17, when Varina played Highland Springs, everything she had worked for as team captain came together. The Blue Devils left the field victorious by a score of 5-0 that day, and Carter contributed one goal and three assists. After the game, the team celebrated at Romaʼs restaurant.

A two-year losing streak and annual coaching changes (three coaches in three years) could damper the competitive fire of most athletes. But Carter took each loss over the two years as if it were the first.

“I get furious when we lose. The coach usually talks me down on the bus ride back home from losses,” she said.

Athlete of the Week – April 17: Sukrija Dudic

Hermitage High School, soccer
Sukrija Dudic, forward for the Hermitage varsity boys' soccer team, is determined to rebrand the Panthers' image. While Deep Run and Freeman have historically been more successful at soccer, Dudic has spent four years working to change the perception of Hermitage.

“I always tell my teammates, ‘We’re not the Hermitage that sucks,’” he said. “Other teams can’t stomp all over us. We’re here to fight and to win.”

Last year the seventh-seeded Panthers upset Lee Davis in the first round of the playoffs, and Dudic said that was a pivotal moment for the squad.

“I think Lee Davis viewed us as an easy win,” he said. “That game was a turning point. They realized that we don’t joke around. We just ended their season.”
