Homad takes advantage of late-race wreck to win at WVSO


The winds of change were blowing through Wenatchee Valley’s Super Oval Saturday night. Checkered flags flew for new names in all but one class of racing at the high-bank quarter-mile track.

Just as our broadcast began, we had a nearly 30-minute delay for oil on the track, which would be a theme throughout the early portion of the evening. But when they finally got to racing, it was pure adrenalin as it began with the Bandoleros and concluded with the Pro Late Models.

Eric Granstrom and Greg Rentz had the call on the NCWLIFE Channel…

Seahawks Dunbar removed from Exempt List, Ursua added to Reserve/COVID-19 list

Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar, a day after robbery charges were dropped against him, was removed from the Commissioner’s Exempt List. This according to the NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. This frees Dunbar up to be able to join his teammates in training camp.

For the first time, the Seahawks have a player on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. Second year wide receiver John Ursua was placed on that list on Sunday. Seattle was previously one of six teams that hadn’t had a player on the Reserve/COVID-19 list since training camp began two weeks ago.
