Extra car finds good driver

Posted on by

first_img“It’s an underfunded deal. Not like a dream ride,” said Thirkettle, who lives in Newhall. “I’m not going to own the car. It’s pretty easier on me. They’re great people. They love racing. I felt bad for them last year. I don’t expect to dominate.” Last year was Cory Fancy’s first year in the Super Late Model class, the highest division that races regularly at Irwindale Speedway. The 22-year-old Cory Fancy struggled, but his parents, his backers, were loyal to his pursuits. Now they have teamed with the Thirkettles, who have a deep championship history racing late models throughout Southern California, from Bakersfield to Saugus to Irwindale. Travis Thirkettle won his first track championship last year. His dad, Jim Thirkettle, won seven track championships at Mesa Marin Raceway in Bakersfield. Jim Thirkettle helps Travis build and maintain his cars now. “Racing’s very expensive,” Loren Fancy said. “Travis has limited funds. They’ll pit together. They’ll have a common asset: his dad. He’s a genius when it comes to race cars.” The NASCAR Super Late Model season will open March 24 at Irwindale Speedway. It could be one of the most competitive seasons in the track’s history. NASCAR Southwest Series champion Rip Michels, the winningest driver at Irwindale Speedway, is returning to the Super Late Model division. The division attracts drivers from Las Vegas, Phoenix, Minden, Nev., and Tucson, Ariz. Last year’s Super Late Model champion was Van Knill, who lists Tucson as his hometown. Loren Fancy knows the competition will be tough. “If both of them won a race,” Loren Fancy said, “that would be a good season.” Thirkettle said he can’t wait to test his skills against the top drivers and teams at Irwindale Speedway. “It’s a great challenge,” Thirkettle said, “and I strive for that.” Indy Racing League: Honda has designed a bigger, more powerful engine for the Indy Racing League teams in the IndyCar Series. Marco Andretti, driver for Andretti Green Racing, said it will take some time for him get accustomed to the new cars. He did not have any complaints about the new engines, but his recent tests gave him little indication of how they will race. “It’s hard for me to compare. I was out of the Indy car seat for about five months in the off-season, which is a ton for a driver,” Andretti said. “When I got back, it was at a road course at Daytona. It just felt like a bit more torque, bottom end. Of course, we were quicker, top end.” Honda is the sole engine provider for the IRL IndyCar Series teams. Andretti said Honda would welcome any challenge from a competing engine manufacturer. “I think Honda would put themselves up against anyone, and I would, too,” Andretti said. “I wouldn’t change Honda for the world.” A competing engine would only make Honda better, Andretti said. “I think definitely a bit better if they’re able to compete,” Andretti said. “Then it just pushes them to be better also, where now they’re just racing themselves.” timothy.haddock@dailynews.com (818) 713-3715 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! When Loren Fancy wanted to move his son Cory into the NASCAR Super Late Model division at Irwindale Speedway, he figured he would need two cars. One was to race week to week and one he would keep as a backup. Then Loren Fancy started adding up the bills to maintain two cars and decided he didn’t need a second. In stepped Travis Thirkettle, the NASCAR Late Model champion at Irwindale Speedway, who was looking for a car to race at the Super Late Model level. center_img Loren Fancy offered Thirkettle the opportunity to race one of his cars. Thirkettle agreed and the L&R Racing team was formed. The L&R stands for Loren and Roseann, Cory’s parents and the owners of his race team. They have been the owners of all his race teams, from when he was 11 years old racing go-karts against A.J. Allmendinger and Scott Speed to his stint in the NASCAR Grand American Modified division and Super Trucks at Irwindale Speedway. The Fancys will also be the owners of Thirkettle’s car, but Thirkettle is the one who will be maintaining and setting it up from race to race. The hope is that the alliance will benefit both drivers. Cory Fancy, who lives in Canyon Country and is a Palmdale High graduate, will have a championship-caliber driver and teammate to share information and ideas. Thirkettle will get a chance to test his racing abilities in the top division at Irwindale Speedway. last_img read more

WATCH Marco Rubio Faces Students Questions Over His Acceptance Of NRA Money

Posted on by

first_img Share Florida Sen. Marco Rubio says he would support raising the age limit to 21 for those wanting to purchase AR-15-style rifles.“If you are 18 years of age, you should not be able to buy a rifle,” Rubio said at a CNN town hall meeting Wednesday night. “I will support a law that takes that right away.”Rubio, who has an A+ rating from the National Rifle Association, said he does not support arming teachers, but does support background check regulation reform.Rubio also said he was “reconsidering” his position on high-capacity magazines. “I’ll tell you why,” he said, “because while it may not prevent an attack, it may save lives in an attack.”The comments represent a softening for a lawmaker whom the NRA has endorsed and praised as someone who has “vigorously fought to promote and defend the right to keep and bear arms.”One week after the deadly shooting at a high school in Parkland, Fla., that killed 17 people, lawmakers and a representative of the NRA faced tough questions from students, teachers and parents at a CNN town hall meeting to discuss how to prevent such tragedies in the future.Michael Laughlin/Sun Sentinel/TNS/Getty ImagesMarjory Stoneman Douglas student Cameron Kasky asked Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., if he will continue to accept money from the NRA during a CNN town hall meeting on Wednesday.Rubio was joined by Sen. Bill Nelson, a Democrat, and U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch, D-Fla., started by answering parents and students at the event in Sunrise.Rubio was the lone Republican lawmaker on the panel, as CNN’s Jake Tapper said both President Trump and Florida Gov. Rick Scott declined invitations to attend.Throughout the event, Rubio found himself in the hot seat, fielding the majority of the questions.One of them came from Cameron Kasky, a junior who survived the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, and drew cheers and applause from the audience: “Sen. Rubio, can you tell me right now that you will not accept a single donation from the NRA?”Rubio’s response did not appear to satisfy the audience: “These positions I hold on the Second Amendment, I’ve held since the day I entered office in the city of West Miami as an elected official,” he said, adding, “People buy into my agenda.”The Florida senator also said it is not the NRA’s money that has a large impact on gun policy. “The influence of these groups comes not from money,” Rubio said. “The influence comes from the millions of people that agree with the agenda, the millions of Americans that support the NRA.”When Sen. Nelson was asked by junior Samantha Grady — who was shot twice at at the school last week — what he would do to strengthen background checks, he said that there are so many other things that can be done, but that “when you get right down to it, the gun is what is going to do the killing.”Nelson added, “I’ve always had guns. I’ve hunted all my life. I still hunt with my son, but an AK-47 and an AR-15 is not for hunting — it’s for killing.”Deutch furthered Nelson’s sentiment, challenging Rubio, who said there were too many loopholes in assault weapons bans.“If there is a problem with the assault weapons ban … if there was a problem with the way that was written, if there were too many loopholes for people trying to get around it to utilize, then let’s bring up the assault weapons ban and close all those loopholes, so we have a bill that keeps people safe,” Deutch said.National Rifle Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch offered the organization’s response to the massacre.When asked by Emma González, a senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas, if it should be harder for people to obtain semi-automatic weapons, Loesch focused on the mental state of those purchasing firearms.Speaking about the gunman, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, Loesch said, “I don’t believe that this insane monster should have ever been able to obtain a firearm — ever.”Loesch said that she spoke for herself and the millions of members of the NRA in saying that “none of us support people who are crazy, who are a danger to themselves, who are a danger to others getting their hands on a firearm.”The NRA does believe there is a need to strengthen background checks, and for state and federal law enforcement to follow up on “red flags,” such as social media postings as a form of prevention, she said.Loesch also took aim at what she sees as flaws in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, citing a fact that states are not federally mandated to report convictions to the system.The spokeswoman argued that last week’s shooting as well as one last November in Sutherland Springs, Texas, could have been prevented by more thorough reporting to the database. In Sutherland Springs, the gunman killed 26 and was able to purchase firearms because the Air Force failed to submit his convictions on domestic abuse charges while enlisted.Students, teachers and parents of victims asked Loesch about the actions the NRA is taking to prevent more school shootings.Loesch noted that the NRA supports banning bump stocks and promotes safety in schools with its National School Shield program that focuses on “improving school security in an effort to help prevent national tragedies at educational institutions in America.”“It’s up to the school and the parents of those schools if they want to use those resources and use those suggestions,” she said.“If [schools] want to have armed guards, if they want to have retired military, if they choose and teachers volunteer to be armed…that’s up to each individual school … but if they also want a solution that doesn’t involve firearms. If they want to talk about checkpoint systems, if they want to talk about reinforcing doors, the NRA, our resources are at their disposal,” she said.Loesch was joined on stage by Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, who responding to President Trump’s comments in which he supported arming teachers with firearms, said, “I don’t believe teachers should be armed. I believe teachers should teach, but that’s exactly what’s wrong with this country.”When asked about raising the age limit for purchasing firearms, Loesch defended the NRA’s position.Copyright 2018 NPR.

Apple Sued Over Alleged iTunes Privacy Violations

Posted on by

first_img Massive iPhone Hack Compromised Thousands of Phones Related Popular on Variety Steven Spielberg’s Apple Event Appearance Was a Slap at Netflix (Analysis) As evidence for this claim, the lawsuit lists the existence of direct marketing lists that identify consumers as “iTunes and Pandora music purchasers.” However, there doesn’t seem to be any acknowledgement in the filing that data brokers could have gained access to that type of purchasing data through other means, including for instance third-party loyalty programs.The second claim made in the lawsuit could potentially be more explosive: Plaintiffs allege that the company has given developers of iOS apps access to a range of data about media stored on iPhones, iPads and iPods. This data includes songs and albums purchased from Apple’s iTunes store, according to the lawsuit.Combined with data consumers provide when they sign up for an app, developers could use this data to build out their own profiles on the music purchasing behavior of countless of consumers, the lawsuit alleges. Developers could then turn around and resell that type of data to data brokers, according to the lawsuit.The lawsuit’s allegations run counter to Apple’s official narrative, which has long been that the company is a lot more privacy-focused than its industry competitors. In fact, the lawsuit also includes a picture of an Apple billboard proclaiming that “what happens on your iPhone, stays on your iPhone.”However, the challenge for plaintiffs will be to prove that they actually were harmed by Apple’s alleged behavior. In the past, similar lawsuits against the company have been thrown out because plaintiffs and their lawyers ultimately couldn’t prove such harm. Apple has been sued by three consumers who allege that the company violated their privacy by sharing information about their music listening habits with third parties. The lawsuit, which was filed late last week in California, alleges that Apple has been selling this type of data directly, while also giving iOS app developers access to a treasure trove of related data.The plaintiffs, who live in Rhode Island and Michigan, are seeking class-action status for their lawsuit. If found guilty, Apple could be forced to pay damages to residents of the two states who had their music listening habits disclosed due to the company’s actions. Apple spokespeople didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.One of the allegations is that Apple directly sold data about consumers who purchased music from the company to data brokers, who in turn have been connecting this type of data to other publicly available information and then reselling it to marketers. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.
