WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR TEAMS AFL DRAFT NIGHTADELAIDEFirst player picked: Jordan Gallucci (No.15, midfielder, Eastern Ranges)What they said: We traded for needs with (Curtly) Hampton, (Troy) Menzel and (Paul) Seedsman and we just keep drafting for talent. We were able to balance it out with some of our needs tonight, we got a tall later on. - recruiting manager Hamish Ogilvie.BRISBANEFirst player picked: Hugh McCluggage (No.3, midfielder, North Ballarat)What they said: We are really excited with what this group of young players offers - they have a range of skills through the midfield and around the flanks.

Its obvious from meeting with him that hes also of great character - a really determined and resilient young man. - list manager Stephen Silvagni.COLLINGWOODFirst player picked: Sam McLarty (No.30, key defender, Oakleigh Chargers)What they said: We had a couple of boys pegged there as key defender types. Sam hurt his shoulder halfway through the year, but hes shown, at 197cm, he can play forward, back and hes extremely athletic and a high-end competitor. - recruiting manager Derek Hine.ESSENDONFirst player picked: Andrew McGrath (No.1, midfielder, Sandringham Dragons)What they said: Hes a winner ... hes a leader and theyre hard to find, so that was probably the major reason we decided to take him. - Essendon list manager Adrian Dodoro.FREMANTLEFirst player picked: Griffin Logue (No.8, key defender, Swan Districts)What they said: We certainly wanted to add some height where we could without getting silly about it either. Its really good ... to add some size into the group - its not every year you can do that. general manager of list management Brad Lloyd.GEELONGFirst player picked: Brandan Parfitt (No.26, midfielder, NT Thunder)What they said: We selected a good mix of players who play a variety of positions, which we think is important for our list. The players are at various stages of their development and we will see them grow as people and players. - national list and recruiting manager Stephen Wells.GOLD COASTFirst player picked: Ben Ainsworth (No.4, midfielder, Gippsland Power)What they said: We are delighted to be welcoming five elite young players, including two of our own academy-listed players.

New Hampshire Motor Speedway is among the most difficult tracks on the NASCAR schedule, perhaps the most frustrating as well.Passes at the one-mile oval will come much harder than last week at Chicago, primarily because there is so little banking to support side-by-side racing in and out of the turns.This track requires drivers to capitalize on other drivers mistakes, much like short-track, or road-course racing.If a driver slips on corner entry, you must be in position to fill the opened hole. If a driver lifts ever so slightly exiting the turn, you must anticipate the weakness and create enough momentum to pull alongside on the long straights.Nothing comes easy at the Granite State track. Nothing ever has.I won a track championship here in 1992, the very early innings of my NASCAR career, and although theyve changed the track slightly a few times, it drives the same. Its the most fun -- and the most frustration that one can have in a race car -- all in the same lap!Three Keys To Winning1) The car must rotate through the center of the turn. Without this, youre forced to slow the car too much on entry, and you suffer mightily to create any speed on corner exit.Another way to look at this is that youre asking your car to swap directions, headed south into Turn 1, need to be headed north out of Turn 2, and while this condition exists at every oval, its far more critical at flat tracks because of the amount of braking required to execute the turns.Talented short-track drivers such as Denny Hamlin can rotate their cars with skill, by transferring weight through a combination of steering, braking and accelerating. But its temporary because you are manipulating a car thats out of balance, and you inevitably burn away a front or rear tire in the process.The cars most capable of winning are those that support above average corner entry speed, with positive steering allowing drivers to reach and retain the apron of the track to the center of the turn. Those are the cars that rotate best, they are pointed in the right direction earlier than others, allowing drivers to use more aggression straight off the turns.Watch for this, and it will appear fairly obvious.2) Be clean and fast on pit road.Losing spots at this track on pit road carries a terrible burden for drivers.Its worse than other places because the likelihood of damage in traffic is greater at New Hampshire than at most tracks.If you lose five spots on pit road, you force your driver to be more aggresssive, particularly late in the race.ddddddddddddThis track seldom rewards aggression. Rather, it rewards precision.Drivers most capable of maintaining track position and preserving tires and brake balance will be best positioned to battle late. Those with fast cars faced with overcoming pit-road penalties will likely damage their cars attempting to quickly regain what was lost.3) Capitalize on restarts!Hamlin told me last time we competed at New Hampshire, I must get better, more aggressive on restarts.Thats more difficult than it seems for a driver of his style, one whos so good with his feet (smooth on and off the brake and accelerator). But its required in this era of NASCAR racing.Its as though the restarts require drivers to have a qualifying mentality, because so much is depending on it.Restarts are more intense than ever in our sport, they are also more critical.Who Wins?Martin Truex Jr. makes it back-to-back wins.Of the 16 drivers competing for the title, the driver of the No. 78 is likely feeling the least pressure.His ticket is punched to the next round, and combine that with Martins free-spirited approach, I believe it gives him a decided advantage.The Truex family has a successful history at this track, his father and brother having won in lower NASCAR divisions.Martin appears destined to add a Cup win to the family collection.The Bottom LineAfter NASCARs announcement to lighten the penalty, or relax the tolerance on postrace inspection, several teams, perhaps the majority, struggled to pass pre-qualifying Inspection.Whats odd about this is that the tolerances didnt change for prerace. So why did the majority of Chase contenders fail?Because competitors inherently take all they can get and then some -- its in their DNA and its difficult to deter .What NASCAR did this week was outstanding. In essence it said it is done governing how much pine tar you use on your bat (YouTube George Brett pine tar to get a full appreciation of my analogy), because we know we are splitting hairs.But if or when we discover a team has used a corked bat, there will be hell to pay!!Folks, I believe NASCAR has drawn a line in the sand when it comes to postrace inspection. I believe they have handled it perfectly, and I shudder to think whats going to happen to the team that pushes NASCAR too far and egregiously steps over that line.
