Mexico City, Mexico (SportsNetwork. Adidas Nmd Nere e Rosse .com) -Reigning Apertura champions America opened their Clausura season with a 3-2 win over Leon on Saturday at the Estadio Azteca. America claimed a 3-1 aggregate win over Tigres in the Apertura final back in December to claim its 12th Mexican league title, and the club hoped to get the winter campaign on the right foot. It didnt take long for the defending champions to get off the mark as Mexico international Oribe Peralta found the back of the net after just three minutes and added a second tally four minutes later. Leon battled back to pull level at 2-2 when Moises Velasco netted an own goal and Mauro Boselli scored after 39 minutes, leaving all to play for in the second half. The winning tally came with 25 minutes left as Carlos Darwin Quintero fired past Leon goalkeeper William Yarbrough to secure all three points for America. Also on the opening weekend of the Clausura, Matias Alustiza scored a pair of stunning goals to lead Puebla to a 2-1 win over Tijuana, while Edy Brambilas 79th-minute strike handed Atlas a 1-0 win over Tigres. Aviles Hurtado struck four minutes from time to give Jaguares a 2-1 result over Guadalajara, while Joao Rojas eighth-minute goal held up to hand Cruz Azul a 1-0 win over Pachuca. On Sunday, Victor Ismael Sosa and Edgar Pacheco traded goals as Pumas and Queretaro played to a 1-1 draw, while Fidel Martinez scored in the 67th minute to give Leones Negros a 1-0 victory over Monterrey. Fridays action, Leiton Jimenez Romero score a pair of second-half goals as Verzcruz claimed a 2-1 win over Santos, while Morelia and Toluca played to a scoreless draw. Adidas Nmd Rosa e Nere . -- Another baseball tradition is about to largely disappear: a manager, with a crazed look in his eyes, charging the field and getting into a face-to-face shouting match with an umpire. Adidas Nmd r1 Nere . -- Each time the Utah Jazz threatened Memphis lead, the Grizzlies responded with defensive stops.CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Joey Logano was pushed into the Sprint Cup Series as a fresh-faced, budding superstar barely old enough to drive at NASCARs national level.When Joe Gibbs Racing chose him to replace Tony Stewart in 2009, Logano moved quickly into one of NASCARs top rides with out-of-whack expectations built by glowing recommendations from veteran drivers.It was quickly apparent that Logano would need years to properly fill Stewarts seat at JGR, and the organization had to make a change after four seasons and just two victories. Roger Penske was fast to grab Logano, who has blossomed into the driver many thought hed be when he turned 18 in 2008 and finally became eligible to race at NASCARs top level.Loganos win Sunday at Kansas Speedway was his career-best fifth of the season and earned him an automatic berth into the third round of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. After the victory, Penske thanked Joe and J.D. Gibbs for giving Logano four years of seat time and breaking him in.Probably have to send (JGR) a check, Penske joked.Logano heads into Saturday nights race at Charlotte Motor Speedway at the top of the Chase rankings and confident hes a legitimate title contender with his No. 22 Team Penske crew. Its a spot Greg Zipadelli always believed Logano could reach.Zipadelli was Stewarts crew chief at JGR and spent three seasons atop the pit box with Logano before Zipadelli moved into a management role at Stewart-Haas Racing.We asked him to do something he probably wasnt ready to do, Zipadelli said. He did the best he could at the time, and I think he got beat up over it.Logano left JGR with 41 top-10 finishes in 144 starts in the No. 20. He also won five poles, but never earned a spot in the Chase. In his first season with Penske last year, he had career-highs in top-fives, top-10s, laps led and made the Chase.I think the change was good for him. He went to a group that was excited about having hhim a€” not that Gibbs wasnt, but they made different choices, Zipadelli said. Adidas Nmd Rosa. We pushed him pretty early. There was never a day I didnt think that kid had talent.___MASON MITCHELL: Mason Mitchell started last winter unsure of his 2014 racing plans and took a gamble leaving his home in Iowa to move to North Carolina to start his own team.The move paid huge dividends as his Mason Mitchell Motorsports team last weekend won the ARCA Racing Series championship.Its unbelievable, Mitchell said. I know there were not too many believers earlier in the year, but we showed them what we were about. I learned so much about myself, living at the race shop and being dedicated. Its just pretty incredible. It takes a lot just to get to the race track.Mitchell finished the season with one win, six second-place finishes and 12 top-five finishes. He also won five poles and his 18 top-10 finishes led all ARCA drivers.Mitchell was solid on every type of track ARCA visited: In two dirt track races, he finished second and fourth. He was 10th on the road course in New Jersey. In nine short track races, he led 449 laps and had seven top-10 finishes.Youre not supposed to do this the first time, Mitchell said. I figured wed be competitive by the end of the race season, but not all year. We never really had a bad day at the race track.___INDYCAR-ENGINE DEVELOPMENT: IndyCar has named Marvin Riley the director of engine development. He will work in developing the rules and performance standards for IndyCar Series engine manufacturers Chevrolet and Honda.Riley, who holds a mechanical engineering degree from Michigan and a business masters from UCLA, has worked the last 10 years as a member of Honda Performance Development. He most recently served as assistant manager of HPDs engine development department, where he was responsible for the execution of all major engine performance specifications and test plans. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
