Unlike his famous 2006 Mount Panorama win with Craig Lowndes, Holdens Jamie Whincup reckons the omens arent looking good ahead of this weekends Bathurst 1000.Never usually a superstitious man, Whincup still admits the stars seemed to align 10 years ago when he helped Peter Brocks protege and co-driver Lowndes soar to a Great Race victory.A tearful Lowndes accepted the inaugural winning Peter Brock Trophy at the Bathurst podium back in 2006.And the portents appeared encouraging for Whincup to claim the trophy for himself with Bathurst triumph No.5 with now co-driver Paul Dumbrell after they dominated qualifying on Thursday.He left his best until last, clocking a scorching lap of two minutes, 05.29 seconds ahead of Fords Fabian Coulthard and 2014 champion Chaz Mostert in the third and final practice session on Thursday.Yet Whincup reckoned he wasnt counting his blessings after casting a concerning eye to the recent upset-riddled footy finals.The Bulldogs win the AFL, Cronulla break their NRL drought - it seems to be the year of the underdogs in Australian sport, said Whincup, who sits second in the 2016 drivers standings behind Holden teammate Shane van Gisbergen.We will try and turn the tide as far as the footy goes.We feel we deserve a Bathurst win but who knows what Sunday will bring.Record six-time touring car champion Whincup may have tasted plenty of Great Race success but he has not savoured victory since 2012 after being left to rue his last two Bathurst campaigns.Whincup last year sensationally ignored team orders to pit at Bathurst and then passed a safety car, relegating him from second to the back of the field with 20 laps left to eventually finish 18th.And in 2014 the Holden gun also defied a team directive before running out of fuel on the 161st and final lap while leading the Great Race.Whincup may be out for Bathurst redemption.And Brocks name may be more associated with Whincups former teammate Lowndes.But Whincup believed it would be fitting to honour Peter Perfect with a Sunday victory in the 161-lap Great Race.I didnt know him but clearly I respect him, Whincup said of Brock who sadly passed away in the 2006 Targa West rally in Western Australia.Two more practice sessions remain before qualifying for the Great Race starts at 1450 AEST on Friday.

Three came down to the fourth quarter while quarterbacks continued to shine in all four games; so important to the overall quality of the game. Youth Bruins Jerseys . Jeff Green scored 13 points and Kris Humphries 12 for the Celtics, who nearly blew an 18-point, second-half lead. Sullingers 20-20 was the first by a Celtics player since Kevin Garnetts first game in Boston in 2007. Garnett was dealt -- along with Paul Pierce -- to Brooklyn during the off-season. CHICAGO -- Mike Matheny was talking about how he guides his own team as the season moves into late summer.But the St. Louis Cardinals manager might have also be offering free advice to the National League Central-leading Chicago Cubs as they navigate uncharted waters as a potential World Series favorite.We control what we control and thats how we play, Matheny said this week as his Cardinals played the Cubs in a weekend Wrigley Field series.You cant back off in this game. If you start allowing anything except your best every single night, I think youre opening up the door for this game to humble you in a hurry. For us, we just put our nose down whether were in first place, whether were not, whether were somewhere in the middle.The Cubs made it two straight over the Cardinals on Friday as Jake Arrieta got early run support in Chicagos 13-2 victory.St. Louis right-hander Luke Weaver makes his major league debut Saturday against Cubs right-hander Kyle Hendricks (11-7. 2.17). The series concludes with a nationally televised Sunday night game.The Cardinals won the NL Central last year with a 100-62 record while the Cubs scratched their way to a 97-65 mark and an NL wild card spot. Chicago eventually beat St. Louis to reach the NL championship series before losing to the New York Mets.This year its the Cardinals looking up at the Cubs, who go into Saturday with a 14-game division lead, the biggest in the majors.St. Louis, meanwhile, remains in the hunt for a wild card berth.The Cardinals willl be without outfielder Matt Holliday -- their No.dddddddddddd 3 hitter -- for the foreseeable future after he suffered a thumb fracture Wednesday. Holliday was hit on the hand by a Mike Montgomery pitch in the 10th inning and was scheduled to see a hand specialist in Chicago on Friday.St. Louis immediately placed Holliday on the 15-day disabled list but had not yet made a corresponding roster move Friday.Unfortunately thats just part of the game and that happens pretty often, Matheny said. You dont dwell on it. Youre not happy about losing any of our guys but you dont let it carry into the next game.The Cubs had no updates on recent developments involving two relief pitchers and an AWOL utility player.Right-hander Hector Rondon continued to rest a sore triceps while reliever Pedro Strop was scheduled to undergo knee surgery after suffering a torn meniscus Wednesday.I know that Im not out for the season and Im going to be back (next) month, he said.Infielder Tommy La Stella, meanwhile, remained on the temporarily inactive list and had still not reported after he was assigned to Triple-A Iowa two weeks ago.Hendricks seeks his first career win over the Cardinals on Saturday. Hes 0-2 in five regular season starts against St. Louis.Hendricks, though, is 8-1 with a 1.19 ERA in 12 games (11 starts) at Wrigley Field this season. Its the best home ERA in the majors.
