This year the Indianapolis 500 was won by Juan Pablo Montoya. It is quite unusual for someone to come from NASCAR and be able to go to an Indy car and be successful. Montoya, of course, was an Indy driver before he went to NASCAR so he is not entirely new in this form of racing. Most race car drivers start out with something like go-carts and work their way up from there. It is quite unusual for NASCAR drivers and Indy drivers to be able to go back and forth when it comes to these two types of race cars. Almost all other forms of racing seem to be interchangeable.Indy cars are ultra high-tech, and they almost take “space” skills to keep them on a race track. NASCAR driving needs almost the opposite technology. They are heavy and not as sleek as the Indy cars. You saw how close to flying Indy cars have become if you watched practice at Indy this year. For Montoya to make this switch in 2 years is really amazing. Just 2 years ago he was full-time on the NASCAR circuit. He left NASCAR because he was not able to reach a success level that he thought he could when he originally went to it. Danica Patrick is still struggling to adjust to NASCAR. Nobody has ever questioned the driving ability of these two drivers as far as race cars are concerned. It just shows how hard the transition is.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — U.S. Rep. Brian Mast, R-Fla., has drafted a resolution calling on the U.S. to “permanently withhold payments on debts owed to the People’s Republic of China in amounts equal to the public costs incurred” as a result of the coronavirus.Congressman Mast joined the South Florida Morning show and commented on his desire to hold China accountable for COVID-19.https://www.850wftl.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Rep-Brian-Mast-China.mp3The resolution cites China’s slow response to combat the virus in the city of Wuhan, where the outbreak originated.“China’s total lack of transparency and mishandling of the coronavirus outbreak has cost tens of thousands of lives, millions of jobs and left untold economic destruction,” Mast said in a statement. “Congress must hold China accountable for their cover-up and force them to pay back the taxpayer dollars that have been spent as a result.”Mast previously co-sponsored a bill that would force China to reimburse the U.S. His press secretary, Kyle VonEnde, told WPTV NewsChannel 5 that Mast’s measure would empower the U.S. to withhold funds owed to China.A class-action lawsuit filed in Miami federal court last month seeks billions of dollars in damages from the Chinese government. Listen to the full interview with Rep. Brian Mast here. He addresses the sluggish unemployment reimbursements to Floridians, the PPP and other coronavirus issues.https://www.850wftl.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Brian-Mast-4-29-20-China-interview-1.mp3

MORE: Why Nick Saban advised Jalen Hurts to transfer to Oklahoma over Maryland, MiamiMaryland might seem like a surprising destination considering its 3-9 record in 2019, but the program has strong Alabama ties. Head coach Mike Locksley was on Nick Saban’s staff at Alabama from 2016-18 and served as the team’s offensive coordinator in 2018. Maryland was also a finalist for former Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts when he was in the transfer portal prior to the 2019 season.Barring a waiver or a change in NCAA transfer rules, Taulia Tagovailoa will have to sit out the 2020 season before becoming eligible to play in 2021. God bless! #GoTerps pic.twitter.com/BvOSv8CsG7— Taulia Tagovailoa (@tauliaa12) May 15, 2020″This decision was not easy and has been prayed on non stop,” Taulia Tagovailoa wrote in his tweet.The rising sophomore entered the NCAA transfer portal last week after a season at Alabama. He was the 180th-ranked player in the Class of 2019, according to 247Sports. He chose the Crimson Tide out of high school over offers from LSU, Florida and other major programs. For the second time in less than a month, a Tagovailoa quarterback has found a new home.In April, Tua Tagovailoa was drafted fifth overall by the Dolphins. On Friday, his younger brother Taulia announced he was moving to College Park, Md.
Listen back to the Tuesday February 4th edition of “The Midday Report”
Inter: “I found a physical and tactical football. We watch videos of offensive and defensive tactics and work on the field much more than in Spain and see that we with Cholo worked a lot on tactics. But here we watch several hours every day.”System change: “From a soccer point of view it was a big change because Inter’s three-line is different from the ones I have played before, more aggressive. I have to have more output with the ball and I am having one-sided runs, because I normally moved nine kilometers or nine and a half and now I’m doing 11 and a half, because the pressure is also high. It is a bigger wear and feels. “Simeone: “He is a complete coach: he is close to the player, he works a lot from the tactical point of view, he is very intelligent to prepare the games. He has things that are innate, like being able to read a game and anticipate what is going to happen. He transmits, he is passionate, It is the connection between the players and the fans. It is like a conductor, because he directs the footballers on the field, but when he sees that people are silent or the team needs encouragement, he asks them to. “Return to Atlético: “At Atlético I finished a cycle that surely was the most beautiful as a professional athlete and person. Probably as a player I will not return. Over the years I will see if there is the possibility of returning from another place. As a fan, I will always carry Atlético in my heart. “Atlético, champion for his goal: “At Atlético the most beautiful moment was the goal against Barcelona that gave us the league title, but I have many special moments. The previous year we had won the King’s Cup against Madrid at the Bernabéu and then we had incredible moments in the Champions League” .Strongest striker: “There were many, although the difference it had in Spain is that, with so many years playing it, I already knew everyone’s characteristics and prepared to score it. Messi was difficult, Neymar and Luis (Suárez) were difficult. Sparks flew with him every time that we were facing. “Complicated in Italy: “The one that complicated me the most was Gervinho. Conte had warned us that Parma was playing counterattack, that this was their main weapon, but we still had difficulties.”Ibrahimovic: “Another that surprised me more than anything because of his physical condition was (Zlatan) Ibrahimovic, who is very strong physically. We have a defense that likes to go to the clash a lot and he held up very well.” Villarreal: “The best team I could have fallen into in Europe was Villarreal, because I had teammates and South American coaches. It was not a club where the pressure from the fans was great, even though people supported it. I grew a lot as a player. The first year We were runners-up, the following year we played Champions and we reached the quarterfinals. “After soccer: “It is clear that I am going to continue in the football environment and that is why I plan to take the technical course, although now I do not want to; but at least to have it and see what happens later.”Captain of uruguay: “It was an unforgettable moment. It was known that Tota (Diego Lugano) was no longer going to play against England because he had screwed his knee against Costa Rica and we all thought that the captain was going to be Diego Forlán, because he was also the second captain , but the Master already had in his head that he was not going to play either “.Prepared to be captain: “In the pre-match I told Tota that although he was not on the court for us he was the captain and that I did not feel able to speak ahead of the group with him there, so I asked him to give the harangue and everything went well. “Penalty: “At one point in the talk he said: ‘If there is a penalty kick it and the captain is going to be Diego Godín’. Although I saw that the Maestro and La Tota were preparing me for that, it is always a surprise when they tell you. “Goal to Italy: “I had the feeling that I could score a goal against Italy. I also came from a year in which I had scored the goal for Barcelona to win champions with Atlético and another in the Champions League final. He came on and had confidence. I jumped with the soul and convinced that he would score. “Best moment in the Selection: “The moment in the national team, coming out of what is a goal or a victory, was the reception upon arrival from South Africa. I would like to see images of what the Rambla and the Legislative Palace were that day. We were received as champions The entire town made us feel proud to have represented them well, so I have no doubts when choosing the best moment. “Play in the Centennial: “It is not a lie that playing at home gives you a bonus, because you give the maximum to make people happy. Leaving the tunnel with the armband and that an entire stadium is supporting you is a unique sensation and difficult to explain in words.”If I hadn’t been a footballer: “I always liked sports and after finishing my studies my idea was to take the Physical Education teacher course. After that I devoted myself completely to soccer and obviously I didn’t continue studying.”Pandemic: “A few days ago the Inter team had a talk with the doctors. The club has behaved spectacularly with us; it has always prioritized health and supported us. We thanked the leaders at a group level.”Protocol: “In theory, forms and protocols there are a lot, but nobody has the truth because this is something new that we are all experiencing. We must take prudent measures for everything that has been experienced. The arrival of summer and high temperatures are going to help cut the contagion. “ Diego Godin has participated in an interview with Rodrigo Romano on the account of the Uruguayan Football Federation. The defender has spoken about his time at Atlético de Madrid, his arrival at Inter, the figure of Simeone and the captaincy in the Charrúa team.
