The new qualifying format for the Indianapolis 500 will include three rounds over two days, with the pole-winner emerging from a "Fast Nine Shootout" on what used to be Bump Day. http://www.atleticomadridpro.com/Kids-Angel-Correa-Jersey/ . IndyCar officials also said Friday there will be points incentives that have yet to be announced. Qualifying for the Indy 500 this year will begin on May 17 when the fastest 33 cars are locked into the field. All entries will be guaranteed at least one four-lap attempt to qualify, and the fastest nine drivers will move into the shootout. On Sunday, the previous days times will be erased and entries 10 through 33 will complete another four-lap qualifying attempt to determine their starting position. The fastest nine drivers from Saturday will then make one four-lap attempt to determine the prestigious pole winner and starting front row. The Indy 500 has had four-lap qualifying runs since 1939. The Fast Nine pole shootout was introduced in 2010, but was on Saturday. The change comes as IndyCar struggles to fill the 33-car field, making the once tension-filled Bump Day drama-free the last two years. Without additional entrants on hand trying to make the race, Sunday had become a glorified practice session. By making qualifying stretch over two days, Sunday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway has become relevant again. "We have a desire to give fans more opportunities to see IndyCar drivers on the track when theres a lot at stake, not just with practice, but where they are out there with putting it on the line in a way that matters," said Mark Miles, CEO of Hulman Motorsports. "I think in the last many years, Saturday has been the day in qualifying, but theres been an opportunity to add more compelling content on Sunday, and thats what were trying to do here." IndyCar driver Graham Rahal called the new format "intriguing" and praised it for adding fan appeal. "The most important thing to realize here is we have to give our fans a better product both on TV and at track," Rahal said. "As we know Sunday in the past has been a moot point. Now I think theres going to be quite a bit of buildup Saturday, see who the 33 will be, then go into Sunday and wait till the very end to see who the pole winner is going to be. "Im pretty excited for the changes that are ahead. Of course, I am a traditionalist, but Im always one thats open for change as well." The format will make life a little more difficult for NASCAR driver Kurt Busch, who will attempt to become the first driver in 10 years to run both the Indy 500 and the Coca-Cola 600 on the same day. Busch will now have to qualify in Indianapolis on Saturday, fly to Charlotte, N.C., for NASCARs All-Star race that evening, then return to Indianapolis to determine his starting spot in Sundays qualifying session. Under the old format, had Busch locked himself into the field on Saturday, he would not have necessarily have needed to return to Indianapolis following the All-Star race unless he was in danger of being bumped out. ABC will broadcast the final two hours of Saturdays qualifications and three hours on Sunday. Additional hours of qualifying will be carried on ESPN3, the network said. "Down through history, qualifying for the Indianapolis 500 has made for many dramatic and compelling television moments, and were confident that the leadership of Indianapolis Motor Speedway and IndyCar will continue that tradition with this new format," said Rich Feinberg, ESPN vice-president, motorsports, production. http://www.atleticomadridpro.com/Kids-Koke-Jersey/ .com) - Matt Beleskey has helped give the Anaheim Ducks some scoring depth and hell look to stay hot on Wednesday night when his club hosts the struggling Philadelphia Flyers. http://www.atleticomadridpro.com/Kids-Lucas-Hernandez-Jersey/ .ca MLB Power Rankings, the third consecutive week that the As have held top spot and the third straight week that they have been one ahead of the Toronto Blue Jays. http://www.atleticomadridpro.com/Kids-Vitolo-Jersey/ . -- Olympic medallist Jennifer Abel of Laval, Que.SAN FRANCISCO - The San Francisco Giants have their own version of the Core Four that has fueled their recent October dominance. While players with catchy nicknames like the Panda, the Freak and MadBum, and shiny trophies like former NL Rookie of the Year and MVP Buster Posey get most of the accolades, a quartet of relievers has played almost as big a role in putting the Giants in position to win a third World Series title in five years. Santiago Casilla, Jeremy Affeldt, Javier Lopez and Sergio Romo are among the seven players who have played in all three post-season runs for San Francisco since 2010, providing stability to a role that can be so hard for some teams to fill come October. One thing that we have thats kind of nice is we have that continuity, Lopez said. Weve been around each other for, this is now our fifth year together for most of us especially in that back end of the pen. That parts kind of nice. We know what we can do, and we complement each other. With a win in the World Series starting Tuesday night in Kansas City, the Giants will join the New York Yankees teams led by Mariano Rivera, Derek Jeter, Bernie Williams and Jorge Posada as the only teams in the past 40 years to win it all at least three times in five seasons. Like those great Yankees teams that won four titles from 1996-2000, the Giants have relied on stellar relief pitching. Its nice to have these four guys with their experience and calmness they bring to the bullpen, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. Lopez has had a steady role as a left-handed specialist whose submarine delivery is lethal against lefties, and Affeldt is another tough lefty who can pitch longer because he is almost as effective against right-handed hitters. Casilla and Romo have had their roles change over the years as the Giants are looking to win their third title with a third closer. Brian Wilson handled the job in 2010 with Romo and Casilla serving as setup men. That changed in 2012 when Casilla stepped into the closer role after Wilson got hurt early in the season. Casilla didnt last in the role as Romo proved more effective and ended up closing out the World Series by striking out Miguell Cabrera. http://www.atleticomadridpro.com/Kids-Filipe-Luis-Jersey/. Casilla and Romo flopped roles again this year after Romo blew three saves in June. We had a lot of success when he was the closer here, and its not easy sometimes, Bochy said. But he never said anything, never complained. For a manager, you appreciate that. He wanted to do everything he could to help the team. Thats the only way this works. The four have combined for a 6-1 record with eight saves and a 1.31 ERA over 87 post-season appearances since 2010. Affeldt has gone 18 straight appearances without a run, Casilla 17 and Lopez 15. With 68 2-3 innings, they have accounted for nearly one-fifth of San Franciscos post-season innings since 2010, and more than the more heralded starters. Every time Ive been in the playoffs, it seems like bullpens are used to their maximum, Affeldt said. Guys have come in in different situations and thrown strikes and come in for guys when maybe we have to come in mid-inning, guys on base, stuff like that. Weve done a pretty good job. The four have gotten help this post-season from journeyman Yusmeiro Petit, whose nine shutout innings of two-hit relief were big reasons for San Franciscos wins in Game 2 of the division series against Washington and Game 4 of the NLCS against St. Louis. Petit has been let go four times in his career, including briefly last season by the Giants, making him a perfect fit in a bullpen of mostly castoffs. Of the seven relievers who have pitched this post-season, only Affeldt hasnt been released, waived or designated for assignment in his career. Casilla was signed to a minor league deal before the 2010 season after being let go by Oakland. Lopez was designated for assignment four times in his career before being acquired in a deadline deal with Pittsburgh in 2010. Romo is a former 28th round pick who was designated for assignment by San Francisco in 2008 before earning a regular role in the majors. Now they are all proven major leaguers and post-season stars that the Giants would never think of letting go. They thrive on being out there in a tight game, in a late situation, Bochy said. They certainly help me make my decisions a lot easier.
