Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone says his series and NASCAR wont be competing for the same motorsport fans in Texas when they hold races 190 miles apart in November. Bernard King Jersey . Ecclestone dismissed on Wednesday any clash between the series, after the top executive at Texas Motor Speedway called F1 "arrogant" for scheduling the United States Grand Prix in Austin on the same weekend that his track hosts NASCAR in Fort Worth. "I absolutely think its foolish," said Eddie Gossage, the track president and general manager. "Its a shot fired by Formula One at NASCAR. I cant say I was surprised because Bernie Ecclestone does a lot of foolish things. The thing he unfortunately doesnt recognize is there is an 800-pound gorilla when it comes to major American motorsports. The 800-pound gorilla is NASCAR." Texas Motor Speedway will host NASCARs Texas 500 on Nov. 2, the same day F1 will hold its only race in the U.S. this year. Fort Worth is about a 3-hour drive from Austin. While Gossage thought a stronger stance by the management at Circuit of the Americas would have prevented the scheduling issue, Ecclestone believed it was a non-issue. "Ive also spoken to the people that run the race at COTA and their position is that they believe the NASCAR crowd is a different crowd to Formula One, different people, different customers," Ecclestone said. "At the end of the day, they run a domestic series in America -- we run a world championship." F1 requires considerable logistical planning by the teams, he said. "Weve a small problem they (NASCAR) dont have -- we have six jumbo jets to move around all our equipment, and we have to find the most sensible way to use them to do that," Ecclestone said. "We have to be efficient and bear in mind we may also encounter problems at an airport. "There are issues that can occur, but (Gossage) and other people do not realize these things. The race prior to the one in the U.S. is in Russia, in Sochi. Weve never been before, and we have to get out of there and into Austin. That is probably a lot easier than trying to get into Brazil, and then we have to get out of there (Sao Paulo) to go to Abu Dhabi." Gossage said F1 could have found another weekend to race in the U.S. "Its just not smart," he said. "Theres 52 weeks in the year. But that was the only weekend that Formula One could make it work in Austin, Texas. Give me a break." Tim Hardaway Jr. Knicks Jersey . Here is a look at all the moves through the first week of NHL Free Agency. The most significant deals will get the full Numbers Game column treatment, like these:Briere-for-Parenteau trade. Derrick Williams Jersey . Raonic, the mens No. 8 seed from Thornhill, Ont., needed more than three hours to overcome Frenchman Gilles Simon 4-6, 6-3, 2-6, 6-2, 7-5 and become the first Canadian man into the fourth round at Roland Garros. http://www.nbaknicksproshop.com/womens-derrick-williams-basketball-jersey/ . The 42-ranked Czech saved seven break points while converting his one chance, and defeated the No. 3 seed in 1 hour 46 minutes. Rosol, who lost in the final in Stuttgart against Roberto Bautista Agut on Sunday, awaits the winner between Philipp Kohlschreiber or 2011 champion Gilles Simon.The matchup is set for the 101st Grey Cup with no shortage of hot storylines expected to play out in the lead up to Sundays big game. But what amongst all these subplots will be the biggest factor next Sunday when the Hamilton Tiger-Cats take on the Saskatchewan Roughriders at Mosaic Stadium? The first story to formally unfold came at the final whistle of Sundays Eastern Final when Kent Austins Tiger-Cats toppled the Toronto Argonauts at the Rogers Centre. Austin - a Rider legend, having led the team to Grey Cup victories as quarterback in 1989 and head coach in 2007 - is in his first season behind the Ticats bench. He will look to deliver Hamilton its first Grey Cup of the 21st Century in front of many fans that lived and died with him under centre between 1987 and 1993. The 50-year-old Austin made headlines in his only prior visit to Regina this year, but Riders fans got the better of him after a 37-0 defeat in Week 4. His homecoming would have been storyline enough, regardless of the opposition. However, once the Riders won the Western Final, the possibility of beating their former hero became a reality as the team hopes to win just its fourth Grey Cup in 103 years. Speaking of former heroes, Austins not the only former star looking to haunt Rider Nation on Sunday. Andy Fantuz - the Most Outstanding Canadian from the 95th Grey Cup - will be wearing black and gold Sunday after having spent six seasons with the Riders. Also making their Rider returns are Hamilton quarterback Henry Burris (a Rider in 2000 and 2003-04) as well as kicker Luca CCongi (2006-11). Joakim Noah Jersey. However, Saskatchewan is not likely to grant their visitors much of an advantage, boasting one of the CFLs most rabid fan-bases. Thus emerges another plot-line: Home-field advantage. Saskatchewan bested the Calgary Stampeders Sunday night and earned the right to fight for the Grey Cup on their own turf. It marks the third straight year that the host citys team has advanced to the final and in both prior instances - the B.C. Lions in 2011 and the Argonauts in 2012 - the home side has won the Grey Cup. Mosaic Stadium is regularly one of the most difficult playing environments for visiting teams, with fan support often acting as a 13th man in the defensive formation. Unfortunately for Riders fans, "The 13th Man" is another ghost that they must exorcise if they hope to earn a fourth Grey Cup in franchise history. In each of their last two Grey Cup appearances, the Riders have been no worse than tied heading into the fourth quarter, including the infamous too many men on the field penalty that helped end the 97th Grey Cup in 2009. Will they be able to close out the game in their first-ever Grey Cup home game? Or, will they suffer a record 16th Grey Cup loss? But Hamilton, too, has its demons to battle. The Ticats have not even appeared in a Grey Cup since they last captured the title in 1999 and were on the losing end of the last Grey Cup meeting between these two teams: Austins 77th Grey Cup triumph. So, what will the biggest storyline be once Sunday rolls around? As always, its Your! Call.
