Brad Kelowski cornered Jimmie Johnson to win the Coca-Cola 600

CONCORD, N.C. – Brad Kelowski extended Jimmie Johnson’s losing streak to 102 races, holding the seven-time NASCAR champion on Monday morning overtime at the Coca-Cola 600.

Selowski started behind the field, trying to move forward at Charlotte Motor Speedway and bet on not pitting when he carefully stopped Chase Elliott from winning with two laps remaining.

Elliott was pitted and Selowski led the eight-car train that remained on the track. He lined up in front of Alex Bowman in the deep line with Johnson – retiring from Cup racing at the end of the season – at the bottom in front of his teammate Ryan Blaney.

Selowski was encouraged to get into the clean air and deny Johnson’s victory. Selowski celebrated as usual by raising the American giant flag outside his window during his victory.

“I feel like I’ve thrown away this race several times and I think we will lose it today,” said Selowski. “I lost it like Chase lost it and it really stinks. And today we finally won that way.”

This is the first victory for Selowski this season, his first Coca-Cola 600 victory and the first win in this event for Ford since 2002.

Johnson had to settle for the second with Chevrolet, while Elliott, whose victory only snatched two laps from the finish, moved up to third for Hendrick to take two podium positions.

Elliott led comfortably and headed for victory when Hendrick Motorsports’ teammate William Byron turned around with a tire problem.

“That must be a joke,” Elliott said through his radio.

Elliott was crushed by Kyle Busch last week trying to race for victory at Darlington Raceway on Wednesday night.

The Sunday before Commemoration Day was supposed to be a stretch of motor sports that began with Formula One at the Monaco Grand Prix, then IndyCar and Indianapolis 500, followed by NASCAR and the longest race on the calendar.

The corona virus pandemic has erased the first part of the F1 schedule and, like IndyCar, is still waiting to start its season. Roger Penske, the new owner of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, has moved the Indy 500. This marks the first time since 1946 that the 500 has not been run on Memorial Day weekend.

NASCAR can advance to its third Cup event in seven days under a health plan approved by state officials that allows the sport to continue after 10 weeks of absence. NASCAR runs three events in South Carolina, and the Coca-Cola 600 starts four days in a row in Charlotte.

A delay of almost 90 minutes of rain during the first stage of the race pushed the finish to Monday, but it still ended well for Penske, owner of the Selowski car.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
