FONTANA, Calif. Jimmy Graham Packers Jersey . -- Penske Racing was perfect Friday in the first phase toward pushing Helio Castroneves to the IndyCar championship. Will Power, Castroneves and AJ Allmendinger swept the front row in qualifying for Saturday nights season finale at Auto Club Speedway, where Castroneves is trying to chase down Scott Dixon for the IndyCar title. "They did a hell of a job to be a front-row lockout, so job accomplished for those guys," said Dixon, who takes a 25-point lead over Castroneves into the finale. Dixons lead could have been cut to 24 points at the start of the race. Power turned a lap at 220.775 mph to bump Castroneves from the pole, snatching away the bonus point his teammate would have earned for qualifying in the top position. "It would have been nice for Helio to get the point, but Scott didnt, so it kind of still keeps it alive," Power said. Castroneves, who had a 49-point lead in the standings before two disastrous races in Houston two weeks ago, has a ton of work to do to win his first title. The Brazilian likely needs to win the race, while Dixon wins his third championship simply by finishing fifth or better. "Unfortunately, we didnt have a crystal ball to tell my buddy here to slow down," Castroneves said. "Those guys were behind him, so Im glad he went for it. Thats what the car was able to do. We showed that we did our homework. Its a game. Youve got to play the game on the odds. In that position, it was the right thing to do." Dixon qualified seventh and said he never had a shot at catching the Penske drivers. Castroneves was the class of the field in an open test last month, and everybody expected his Chevrolet to be fast at the finale. But the qualifying order had Castroneves go out fairly early, and Power knocked him from the pole, saying after he wanted to ensure that Dixon couldnt grab the top spot when he made his late run. "Im surprised they thought we had that kind of speed in us," the New Zealander said. "Thats kind of nice because it obviously helped us. Ill have to thank Will for taking that point. Whether that comes into control tomorrow night, thats a different subject." Both Castroneves and Dixon made engine changes before the weekend and will take 10-spot penalties on the starting grid. It means both will have to drive through early traffic in their championship race. Allmendinger was brought in by team owner Roger Penske as an added aid to Castroneves battle, and both he and Power have said theyll do whatever is needed to help their teammate. "Obviously, Helios got a championship on the line, and if I can help that, I will," Allmendinger said. But Power bristled when asked if a recent manipulating scandal in NASCAR by Michael Waltrips team could reflect poorly on any Penske attempt to assist Castroneves. "No, cmon. If you just sit there and say Im going to race my teammate really hard for the win, what are we talking about?" Power said. "Everyone knows what the deals going to be. Thats what its going to be. Every single team in this pit lane in this situation would do the same thing. Not just back off over the line. Not going to let him go, but not going to race him hard." Castroneves, usually light and playful, turned serious on the issue. "Were going to race as hard as we can without taking each other out," Castroneves said. "Well see what happens. If we got in that position, thats a great problem to have. Hopefully it will be like that, then well talk about it later." Dixon will be racing with Alex Tagliani filling in for regular teammate Dario Franchitti, who is recovering from injuries suffered in a last-lap crash at Houston two weeks ago. The four-time series champion suffered a broken ankle, two fractured vertebrae and a concussion in the accident, and was hospitalized for almost two weeks. Castroneves did not believe Dixon would suffer from not having his usual Target Chip Ganassi Racing teammate on the track. "Scott and Ganassi, not the first-time rodeo for them," he said. "They know what they need to do. We know what we need to do, as well." IndyCar moved the start of the race back 20 minutes to address driver concerns about the glare from the sun in Turn 3.

Muhammad Wilkerson Jersey . -- Chris Jones and Louisville have done a tremendous job protecting the basketball this season and thats led to easy victories. http://www.packersrookiestore.com/Packer...on-Jersey/ . Correia pitched six innings of one-run ball, Eduardo Escobar homered, and the Minnesota Twins pulled away late to beat the Colorado Rockies 9-3 on Saturday.The Winnipeg Jets look for a successful start to the new season against a club that shares their history. The Jets take on the newly-christened Arizona Coyotes - the former Phoenix Coyotes and former Winnipeg Jets - in Glendale in their season opener. Viewers in the Winnipeg region can watch the Jets vs. Coyotes live tonight on TSN3 at 8pm ct. The game can also be heard on TSN Radio 1290 Winnipeg starting at 7pm ct. Winnipeg has missed the playoffs in each of its three seasons since moving from Atlanta and last season finished last in the Central Division. That came in the Jets first campaign in the Western Conference after shifting from the East in realignment. The Jets will open the season with Paul Maurice as its head coach, a role he took over from the fired Claude Noel in January. Winnipeg went 11-3-1 in Maurices first 15 games -- including a 5-1 win over Phoenix in his debut on Jan. 13 -- but a six-game slide in early March sealed the clubs fate. Winnipeg did not have an active offseason, signing center Mathieu Perreault. However, the franchise did opt to keep forward Evander Kane, who scored 30 goals as a 20-year-old in 2011-12 but has tallied only 36 times in 111 game since. The Jets are also expected to move Dustin Byfuglien from defense to the wing, a role he filled while helping Chicago win the Stanley Cup in 2010 after getting drafted as a blueliner. The 6-foot-5 American was moved back to the blue line after getting dealt to Atlanta in the summer of 10 and became an All-Star defenseman capable of creating havoc on the rush. Byfuglien and 21-year-old rookie Adam Lowry, who had 33 points in 64 AHL games last season, will try to help on offense, while the likes of Tobias Enstrom, Zach Bogosian and Jacob Trouba pick up the slack on defense. Ondrej Pavelec, signed to a five-year deal prior to 2012-13, struggled to a 22-26-7 mark last season with a 3.01 GAA and .901 save percentage. Hell have a chance to get off to a good start to this season tonight as he is 4-1-1 lifetime versus the Coyotes with a 1.61 GAA and .945 save percentage. Winnipeg made one line-up change on Thursday afternoon, adding Paul Postma on defence in place of Grant Clitsome. The Jets, who open this season on a three-game road trip, won all three meetings with the Coyotes last season and have won four in a row in this series after going winless in seven straight encounters. Doan was the seventh overall pick of the 1995 draft when the franchise was still in Winnipeg and is the last remaining Jet to be playing in the NHL following Teemu Selannes recent retirement. The Coyotes franchise is entering its 18th season since leaving the city of Winnipeg for the desert. There hasnt been a ton of success for the club since and it hopes to turn things around under a slightly new name. Jimmy Graham Jersey. The Coyotes have missed the playoffs in two straight seasons and in eight of the last 11 campaigns. However, there is still reason for hope as Arizona failed to secure a postseason spot by just four points in 2013 before finishing two points removed from the eighth seed last season. While the Coyotes sport two of the most dangerous offensive blueliners in the league -- Keith Yandle and Oliver Ekman-Larsson -- they are hoping to get more help from their forwards. That despite losing their second-leading scorer from last year in Radim Vrbata to free agency and buying out center Mike Ribeiro. One day shy of his 38th birthday, captain Shane Doan does return for his 19th season and center Sam Gagner is expected to make his Coyotes debut. Gagner was the sixth overall pick of the 2007 draft by Edmonton and was traded twice in the offseason, going from the Oilers to Tampa Bay to Arizona in one day. Gagner had just 37 points with the Oilers last season and the Coyotes are hoping he can produce in a bigger role. Arizona begins the season with a four-game homestand and will have Mike Smith in net. After a breakout 2011-12 season, Smith went 27-21-10 in 2013-14 with a 2.64 goals against average and .915 save percentage. He did get hot towards the end of the campaign, posting a 1.94 GAA and .934 save percentage over a 16-game span from Feb. 1-March 22, but suffered a season-ending injury on March 24. Smith is 1-2-1 with a 2.22 GAA and .923 save percentage in four games against the Jets.
