SONOMA, Calif. Cheap Rangers Jerseys Authentic . -- Tony Stewart was running lap times about a second faster than expected at Indianapolis Motor Speedway when a blown tire caused him to wreck this week in a Goodyear test. Goodyear officials said Stewarts accident 17 laps into Tuesdays 20-lap run was the only incident of the two-day test. The three-time NASCAR champion wasnt injured. "Our test speeds were extremely fast at Indianapolis," Greg Stucker, Goodyears director of racing, said in a statement Friday. "Tony was approaching the end of a very strong 20-lap run, with his lap times as much as a second faster than what has become the norm at Indianapolis at that point of a run. "It appears that increased, sustained speed over that run generated a significant amount of heat, which eventually caused the right-front to go down." Stewart wasnt upset with Goodyear over the incident, which he said "destroyed the car, so it was a good hit. "I am not really sure what the cause of it was, but thats part of tire testing," Stewart said. "Thats why you go to the test. Im sure theyll learn something from it and well go on." Joey Logano was one of six drivers at the test and said Stewart easily had the fastest car at Indy. Also at the test were Greg Biffle, Clint Bowyer, Kyle Busch and Ryan Newman, the defending race winner. Stewart, an Indiana native, has two Brickyard victories and puts a huge emphasis on the July race. Following Stewarts tire failure, Logano said Goodyear made adjustments "to figure out a way to knock some speed out of these race cars." Teams were given a different left side tire to use and will wait to see what Goodyear decides to bring for the race. "I know when we left they were going to go back and discuss where they wanted to be, but I think theyre going in the right direction on making sure they have the security in the tire, making sure its safe," Logano said. "Its definitely a very big challenge when you come to a race track and you go faster and youre already on edge. Youve got to come back with something thats even more durable and thats hard." Indianapolis has been a difficult track for Goodyear, and the tire brought to the 2008 race was not durable enough to make it more than a dozen or so laps. NASCAR was forced to call a caution roughly every 10 laps to force teams to change tires. "The thing about Indianapolis is the tough conditions the cars and the tires have to endure," Stucker said. "The surface is very abrasive, the long straightaways and short chutes are fast, cornering is tough with very little banking. Combine that with this new car package, and youve got conditions that put a lot of stress on the tires." Joey Gallo Jersey . Grimes signed a $32 million, four-year contract to remain with Miami.

In early August the judge will hear final arguments that will highlight opposing portraits of the Paralympic athlete -- a gun-obsessed egotist who shot girlfriend Reeva Steekamp in a rage or a vulnerable figure with a disability who pulled the trigger in a tragic case of mistaken identity. The trial has transfixed South Africans and others around the world who recall the double-amputee runner competing on carbon fiber blades at the 2012 Olympics in London. The triumphant image of Pistorius racing alongside able-bodied athletes contrasts with the anguished spectacle in the Pretoria courtroom, where he faced a blistering interrogation by the prosecutor and sometimes wailed and retched in apparent distress, spittle dripping into a bucket at his feet. Pistorius, 27, was among several dozen witnesses, ranging from neighbours who heard screams on the night he killed Steenkamp, to experts who talked about the trajectory of the four bullets he fired through a closed toilet door to a former girlfriend and a sports physician who treated the star athlete for years. Pistorius says he killed Steenkamp, a 29-year-old model, by mistake, thinking an intruder was in the toilet and about to attack him; the prosecution says he shot her after a Valentines Day argument last year. Defence lawyer Barry Roux said he had finished calling witnesses, and that some people did not want to testify for the defence because of the publicity surrounding the case. Roux said he chose not to ask Judge Thokozile Masipa to compel them to appear, and also noted that a psychiatrist who evaluated Pistorius for the defence recently suffered a heart attack was not able to testify. "We close the case for the defence," Roux said. Chief prosecutor Gerrie Nel then said the prosecution will file closing arguments on July 30 and the defence will do so on Aug. 4. He and Roux agreed to return to court on Aug. 7-8 to give final arguments before Judge Thokozile Masipa, who instructed that the media should not report on the legal summaries of either side until the final arguments start in court. Anyone responsible for a document leak is a "thief" who is undermining the interests of justice, said the red-robed juudge, who is a former journalist. Cheap Texas Rangers Jerseys. . Once final arguments occur, Masipa is expected to announce a further break during which she will deliberate on a verdict with the help of two legal assistants who flank her on a dais during court proceedings. The period of one month granted for legal teams to prepare final arguments will allow them to pore over the lengthy transcript of testimony, documents submitted by experts and other information in a complex trial, said Kelly Phelps, a senior lecturer in the public law department at the University of Cape Town who has closely followed the case. In April, the judge had said the court record for the Pistorius trial was already almost 2,000 pages. The trial, which began March 3, included a break of a month during which a group of mental health experts observed Pistorius and concluded he was not suffering an anxiety disorder when he killed Steenkamp. Pistorius, who is free on bail, faces 25 years to life in prison if found guilty of premeditated murder. He could also be sentenced to a shorter prison term if convicted of murder without premeditation or negligent killing. Additionally, he faces separate gun-related charges that the prosecutor has tried to use to strengthen his narrative of a pattern of dangerous and reckless behaviour by Pistorius, who once enjoyed lucrative sponsorship deals. Pistorius was born without fibulas, the slender bones that run from below the knee to the ankle. Parts of his lower legs were amputated when he was 11 months old. The last witness to testify was the athletes sports physician, Wayne Derman. He said Pistorius feels anxious, vulnerable and hindered by his disability, part of the defence effort to explain why he fired on a perceived intruder and was allegedly unable to flee. Nel, the prosecutor, countered that poor, homeless and older people can be vulnerable and said Pistorius was able to protect himself by living in a gated complex with security guards and an alarm system, and had a strong network of family and friends. The most dramatic stage of the trial was in April, when Nel questioned Pistorius for five days in a grueling cross-examination. At one point, Pistorius appeared to become emotional and said: "My life is on the line." Nel quickly responded: "Reeva doesnt have a life anymore."
