ANTIGONISH, N.S. – Donald Chisholm scored an emotional and convincing victory in front of the hometown crowd as he took his first career NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 checkered flag in Saturdays Wilson Equipment 300 at Riverside International Speedway. The victory for Chisholm, from Antigonish, came in his 16th career start. A part-time competitor since 2007, he became the 15th different winner in Canadian Tire Series history. "I honestly can hardly believe that its happening," Chisholm said from Victory Lane. "Weve been fast a bunch [of times previously] with these guys and just had misfortune, and tonight it all stayed together." Chisholm, whose family owns Riverside, captured the victory less than two months after his father and track founder, John, passed away. Chisholm also earned his first career pole earlier in the evening. Chisholms No. 28 Keltic Ford/Nova Construction Ford was followed across the finish line by only three other lead lap cars: Alex Labbe, D.J. Kennington and Andrew Ranger. Both Kennington and Ranger passed Chisholm in the closing laps to rejoin the lead lap. Mark Dilley, points leader L.P. Dumoulin, J.R. Fitzpatrick, Noel Dowler and rookies John Flemming and Matthew Scannell brought home the top 10. Jason Hathaway appeared poised to defend his Riverside win from a year ago. He was cruising in the lead when he collided with the spun Flemming car while navigating lap traffic on Lap 240. For Labbe, who has turned in competitive performances this year in a part-time role, the runner-up was his best career Canadian Tire Series finish to-date. "We had a great run," Labbe said. "We had a great car at the end, struggled a bit at the beginning, and just made our way back through the pack. Im really happy to get my first podium here at Antigonish." Dumoulin leaves Riverside with the same points advantage he arrived with, 26 tallies ahead of Fitzpatrick, and now Ranger, who is tied for second. Hathaways Riverside misfortune now has him 47 points back in fourth. Each of the last two Canadian Tire Series races have featured hometown winners. In addition to Chisholm, Dumoulin was victorious last week in his native Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, in the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivieres. Chisholm also became the first first-time winner the Canadian Tire Series has featured since Dumoulin won the 2013 season-opener at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

I was actually surprised that Prince Ali even announced himself as a candidate. I respect Prince Ali as a brother but, as one man in Asia, I wish Blatter to have one more term when the general assembly is held in Kuala Lumpurr (in May).dddddddddddd.While Sheik Ahmad does not personally have a vote, the OCA has a powerful influence over many Asian Football Confederation members who do take part in the FIFA ballot. He said Kuwait would vote for Blatter.This is a commitment from my football federation, from my country, and if I dont respect my commitment and continue with that, then nobody would respect us, he said. Thats why were going with Blatter.Sheikh Ahmad confirmed that his close Bahraini ally, Asian Football Confederation President Sheikh Salman Bin Ibrahim Al-Khalifa, would also back Blatter.Salman already committed, the sheikh said. All of us have committed to Blatter before Prince Ali showed his interest.The Oceania Football Confederation has already said it will support Blatter.
