17-year-old Stow bowler Jillian Martin rolls first 300 during Youth Open Championships

News 5 Cleveland 16 July, 2021 - 07:01am

INDIANAPOLIS — Jillian Martin, a 17-year-old bowler from Stow, celebrated her first perfect game, rolling her first 300 during the Bowling.com Youth Open Championships in Indianapolis.

Martin was competing against the best high schoolers in the country when she accomplished the feat, putting her in second by just five pins in the entire U18 Singles Division.

The Stow-Munroe Falls High School soon-to-be senior has been making a name for herself in the pro bowling circuit.

Martin is not only a standout bowler on the Junior Team USA bowling squad, an 11-time Junior Tournament Bowlers Association champion and a 2019 Ohio High School Athletic Association state champion—she also has finished as high as second place in Professional Women's Bowling Association events earlier this year.

Bowling a perfect game has been in the making for Martin for some time now, she said.

"I had the front 11 out at the PWBA in January and that was kind of my first time ever having front 11, came out with a 299. Shot a 297 in March. Shot another 299 back in the end of May and then out here we're fourth front 11 and we finally got it done, so that's pretty cool," Martin said.

Martin had her family in attendance for the big moment, with her dad, grandpa and mom all behind her cheering her on.

"It was really cool to have them all here and just be able to experience it with them all," Martin said.

Martin had previously said that she hopes to be a trailblazer for other young women and girls chasing their dreams on the lanes.

“I’ve always wanted to be that person. Just being able to inspire everyone,” Martin said. “I’ve gotten messages from people and it’s so cool. I can not even describe the feeling when you get a message from someone and they’re like ‘I look up to you.’ It’s just great.”

NASCAR’s biggest ‘secret’ for 2022 can finally be announced

If it wasn’t a done deal already, it certainly is now. Now all we have to do is wait for Brad Keselowski to be confirmed as not only a driver but a co-owner of Roush Fenway Racing — actually, Roush-Fenway-Keselowski Racing — for the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season.

This transition has been rumored for several months, and as soon as the rumors started to swirl, multiple reliable sources indicated that the move was likely.

A little bit later on, those same sources reported that it was a “done deal”, despite the fact that there was no confirmation from Keselowski, Roush Fenway Racing, or Keselowski’s current team, Team Penske.

But now Team Penske, as well as the Team Penske-affiliated Wood Brothers Racing, have completely solidified their driver lineups for the 2022 season, meaning that the biggest “secret” of silly season is on the verge of an official confirmation. Keselowski himself posted on Twitter about his departure from Roger Penske’s team.

Team Penske already had Ryan Blaney under contract to drive the #12 Ford for next year, and they already had Joey Logano under contract to drive the #22 Ford for next year.

Now they have confirmed that reigning Xfinity Series champion Austin Cindric is set to drive what is currently Keselowski’s #2 Ford next year.

It had been announced last season that Cindric would take over behind the wheel of the #21 Ford at Wood Brothers Racing, replacing Matt DiBenedetto after the 2021 season.

But with Keselowski’s future uncertain considering the fact that he only signed a one-year extension last season, Cindric moving right to Team Penske’s Cup Series operation was always seen as an option.

Meanwhile, DiBenedetto is now set to be replaced by Harrison Burton, who currently competes for Joe Gibbs Racing in the Xfinity Series.

A Keselowski move to Roush-Fenway-Keselowski Racing likely means that Ryan Newman, who currently pilots the #6 Ford, will be without a ride for 2022. Chris Buescher is seen as a long-term option for the team behind the wheel of the #17 Ford, and the idea of an expansion to three cars for the first time since 2016 doesn’t appear to be all that likely.

Austin Cindric to replace Michigan’s Brad Keselowski at Team Penske in 2022

MLive.com 15 July, 2021 - 08:34am

UPDATE: Brad Keselowski has released a statement on Team Penske’s announcement

Rochester Hills’ Brad Keselowski still hasn’t said what his NASCAR Cup Series plans are for 2022.

However, Team Penske confirmed Thursday morning that Keselowski will not be back next season.

Team Penske announced Thursday morning that Keselowski will be out of the No. 2 Ford Mustang and will be replaced by Austin Cindric. Team officials sent out a press release on its Twitter account. Please click here to read the press release.

Keselowski, 37, has been the subject of one of the season’s biggest rumors in recent months. Talk has been that Keselowski, the 2012 Cup champion, would be leaving Penske at the conclusion of the 2021 season for a spot at Roush-Fenway Racing. Not only will Keselowski drive for car owner Jack Roush, but he will obtain limited ownership rights with the team.

Keselowski hasn’t commented on those rumors. He has been racing for Roger Penske full-time since 2010 and has won 34 of his 35 Cup races with Penske.

Cindric races for Team Penske in Xfinity and is the defending series champion. Cindric, who is leading the series point standings, has won 12 career Xfinity races with Penske.

Also Thursday, Wood Brothers Racing announced that Xfinity driver Harrison Burton will replace Matt DiBenedetto behind the wheel of its No. 21 Ford Mustang next year.
