KRANJSKA GORA, Slovenia -- The final womens World Cup giant slalom before the Sochi Olympics was called off Saturday because of rain and fog, following a day of heavy snowfall. David Luiz Jersey . A decision on whether to go ahead with a slalom scheduled for Sunday on the same Podkoren course will be made shortly before that race. Organizers first delayed the start of the GS by half an hour but conditions failed to improve. "The race line was quite good but we had a lot of loose snow on the outside," FIS race director Atle Skaardal said. "And then in connection with the freezing rain and the bad visibility, the complete situation was not acceptable." FIS says 200 course workers had been working all morning to clear over a meter of fresh snow, but rain and fog were limiting visibility for the racers on the softened course. "I am convinced it was the right decision," Skaardal said. "The organizing committee have done a tremendous job over the last days and hours to even bring us in the position this morning to consider to start a race because you saw how extreme everything was." Despite rain being forecast for the rest of the day, Skaardal judged the chances for Sundays slalom as "quite good." "Its a shorter event. We need only 550 metres length which is less than 50 per cent of the giant slalom," he said. "This makes it easier as we have more people to work on a smaller area." The 50th edition of the annual Zlata Lisica event was moved from another Slovenian resort, Maribor, because of a lack of snow there. The GS will likely be rescheduled after the Olympics, though the tight schedule doesnt leave FIS many options, according to Skaardal. Jessica Lindell-Vikarby leads the GS World Cup standings with 332 points, 120 clear of Swedish teammate Maria Pietilae-Holmner. Tina Weirather of Liechtenstein, Austrian pair Anna Fenninger and Kathrin Zettel, and American teenager Mikaela Shiffrin are all within 10 points of Pietilae-Holmner. Austria womens head coach Jurgen Kriechbaum said that "coaches were unanimous, the weather is just too bad." "The course is not good enough to stage a race with these conditions," Kriechbaum said. "The organizers wanted to stage the race at all costs but its useless under these circumstances."

Still, Encarnacion felt a sense of relief. He felt a pop just before crumpling to the ground after running out a groundball in the first inning of Saturdays game. It could have been worse. “Its going to take maybe two weeks,” said Encarnacion. “It depends how Im going to be and how Im going to be day after day, feeling better or not.HOMESTEAD, Fla. - Matt Crafton just needed to avoid a disaster to clinch a second straight Truck Series championship.No big deal at all for the grizzled, 38-year-old veteran.Crafton became the first driver to win consecutive Truck championships when he clinched the title with a ninth-place finish Friday night at Homestead-Miami Speedway.To say I made history is definitely very, very cool, but its all about the guys that are behind me, Crafton said. Without them, Im just an average race car driver at best.All he had to do was finish 21st or better in the 134-lap race contested by a field mostly full of up-and-comers. There was never any doubt.Darrell Wallace Jr. earned his fourth win of the season.Wallace and truck owner/driver Kyle Busch went bumper-to-bumper for a celebratory spinout.That was on the fly, man, Busch said. I just stopped and waited. Ill have to see what it looked like on TV but from where I was sitting, it looked pretty cool.Busch finished fourth, and his Kyle Busch Motorsports team won the drivers championship.Kyle Larson was second, Timothy Peters third and Ryan Blaney fifth. Blaney was runner-up to Crafton in the final standings.Wallace held off Larson and Blaney down the stretch, tangled in a three-wide battle for a thrilling finish, giving Toyota its 18th win of the series in 22 Truck races.Wallace broke down in tears after the race, perhaps racing in the Truck Series for KBM for the final time.Im not sure what the future holds for me, but this is one hell of a way to go out, he said. Tiemoue Bakayoko Jersey. p next for Crafton is celebrating a second career championship.In his 15th full season in the series, Crafton won at Martinsville Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway and had 17 top-10 finishes. This was the first time Crafton won multiple races in a season. His average finish was seventh.Crafton, who drives for ThorSport Racing, has made four career Nationwide starts and has never started a Cup race.He had last years championship wrapped up as soon as the green flag dropped at Homestead. On Friday, Crafton, who made his series-high 337th straight start, was smooth on and off the gas over the final laps to make the championship a mere formality.His parents watched from the pits. His mother buried her face in her hands, hoping Crafton could hang on.I wanted to race so much harder tonight, Crafton said. I kept asking, I was just waiting for them to say that there were like 20 trucks running at that point and then I could go. When it was five (laps) to go and I had asked again how many trucks were still in, and there were 22 on the lead lap, I said I couldnt take any chances. I know I could have went further forward, but I said it is what it is.Ben Kennedy earned Truck Series rookie of the year honours.Kyle Busch added another owners title to go with the ones his team won in 2010 and 2013. KBM won 14 of 22 races.Its a great milestone for us, Busch said. Its been fun to capture all those moments. But none greater than this one.
