West De Pere tops Shawano

Unique race comes to raceway this weekend

A first-of-its-kind UTV race is headed to Shawano.

US Air Motorsports Raceway will be the host of the Midwest SxS Sports Spring National on Saturday and Sunday, where professionals and amateurs will showcase their UTV racing skills in front of fans from across the country.

UTV racing is a style of off-road racing that has grown in popularity over the past year. Saturday and Sunday’s event will be like no other before it, however. For the first time in the sport, UTV racing will take place on a track that is 50 percent dirt and 50 percent asphalt.

Wisconsin native Johnny Greaves, a professional off-road racer who served as a planner and promoter for the event, said the car count at the event could be the largest ever for short-course UTV racing to date. The pro purse of $25,000 is also the biggest ever.

World Cup without the US nothing to kick about

A couple from England came to stay for a few days and brought their 10-year-old son, who had a question about American football.

He was careful not to be insulting, but from his bewildered tone it was clear he thought something was wrong with our sport.

“Don’t they get bored having to stop all the time in between plays?” he asked.

The eventual drift of the conversation was that soccer — or “football,” as it is known everywhere outside the U.S. — was the more demanding sport due to the continuous action.

A less patient host could have asked in passing why so many players of the beautiful game try to draw cheap penalties by flopping around on the field like a carp in a rowboat, but this visit was a “friendly.”

Eventually the question became why America, with all its human and logistical resources, has had such limited success in men’s soccer.
