0 Comments

Canandaigua (N.Y.) Motorsports Park, the site of Saturday night’s fatal racing incident that involved NASCAR superstar Tony Stewart and took the life of sprint car racer Kevin Ward Jr., has announced that it will cancel its slate of races for this Wednesday.

The announcement came in a statement from track promoter Jeremie Corcoran.

In the statement, Corcoran offered his condolences to the family of Ward, the 20-year-old competitor that was struck by Stewart’s car after walking down the racing surface to confront the three-time Sprint Cup champion following an on-track incident.

Corcoran also asked the fans to “hold on to your integrity and have compassion for everyone involved in this,” likely referring to the many opinions that have been lodged since the tragedy took place.

He also thanked the track’s medical staff for their efforts on Saturday and explained why the track’s Facebook page was taken down for a short time on Sunday.

Here is the full statement in its entirety:

Meanwhile, another short track, Plymouth (Ind.) Speedway, has announced on its Twitter account that a planned race by Stewart scheduled for this coming Saturday will not occur.

Yesterday, Stewart did not compete in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Watkins Glen International and was replaced in the No. 14 car by Regan Smith.

During the race, Stewart released a statement expressing his sadness over Saturday’s events at Canandaigua.

Max Verstappen is the PointsBet Sportsbook odds favorite to win the 2022 Singapore Grand Prix on the Marina Bay Street course to stretch his current win streak to six consecutive. He shows odds of -200 this week.

Formula 1 did not compete in Singapore in 2020 or 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but Verstappen has podium finishes in his last two attempts on this track. he was second in 2018 and third in 2019. In the first 15 races of this season, he has failed to stand on the podium only twice and has an average finish of 2.73.

With minus odds, the way to determine a payout is by subtraction. In order for a bettor to earn $100, he must wager $200 this week; with that wager, he will get back his initial stake and winnings of $100.

For bettors more comfortable with fractional odds, a bet of +300 is the same as 3/1.

Charles Leclerc is ranked second this week with +400 odds. He has two previous Singapore GP starts to his credit with a best of second in 2019. He is coming off back-to-back podium finishes with a third in the Dutch GP and a second at Monza.

Ranked third is Carlos Sainz, Jr. with a line of +1100. He has top-five finishes in four of his last five starts, but only one of these, a third in the Belgian GP, was on the podium. Sainz is one of four winners other than Verstappen this season. His victory came in the British GP.

Lewis Hamilton shows a line of +1200. His last win came last fall in the Saudi Arabian GP and the Mercedes team has struggled to contend for victory in 2022. They are improving, however, with eight top-fives in the last nine races. Hamilton has two wins in his last three Singapore starts, which came in 2017 and 2018.

Rounding out the top five is Hamilton’s teammate George Russell at +1800. He has not won, but has shown remarkable consistency with top-fives in all but one race. Notably, his only bad finish came in his home GP in England. Russell has one previous start at Marina Bay; he finished last in the 2019 race. He finished fourth in 2019 as part of a four-race streak of top-fives.

The most recent Singapore GP winner from 2019, Sebastian Vettel is a longshot at +50000.
