After an open first half of the Supercars championship, the cream is rising to the top in this years title race. Custom Patriots Jerseys .Six-time champion Jamie Whincup heads into this weekends Ipswich SuperSprint at Queensland Raceway holding a narrow 53-point lead over Red Bull Racing teammate Shane Van Gisbergen.Just behind them is reigning champion Mark Winterbottom, with the Ford ace only 22 points adrift of Van Gisbergen.It means despite a season featuring 10 different race winners and multiple championship leaders the top trio are starting to take a stranglehold on this years title battle.Holden veteran Craig Lowndes and Volvos Scott McLaughlin are hanging into the title race but are already 153 and 171 points behind Whincup respectively.Winterbottom, who won both races at Ipswich last year on his way to his maiden Supercars title, says the fact the track is the home of his Red Bull Racing rivals could be as much of a hindrance as a help.Going to your test track doesnt always work for you, the Prodrive Racing Australia star said.Conditions can change and youve tested all these items and then you dont get on top of it and a fresh team has new challenges.It will make for good racing at that track, it is always a tough one and I just hope we can win again because it does feel better when you can beat them on their home turf.Winterbottom will make his 400th Supercars race start on Saturday but Holden ace Whincup is also chasing a major milestone.Whincup posted his 99th career race win at Townsville earlier this month and victory in either of the two races this weekend will make him the second driver in Supercars history after Lowndes to win 100 races.Lowndes himself will be hoping to add to his 11 race wins at the venue in a bid to reignite his flagging championship tilt.The Ipswich SuperSprint begins on Friday with practice before a 39-lap race on Saturday and a 65-lap race on Sunday.MILESTONES AND FORM FOR THE SUPERCARS CHAMPIONSHIP CHASERS* Championship leader Jamie Whincup is chasing a 100th career race win after his 99th victory in Townsville earlier this month.* Red Bull Racings Shane Van Gisbergen has the most wins this season with three and has finished in the top 10 in 28 of his last 30 races.* Fords Mark Winterbottom will make his 400th race start in Saturdays 39-lap event. He has 37 of those races. Garrison Hearst Jersey . Tests earlier this week revealed a Grade 2 left hamstring strain for Sabathia, who was hurt in last Fridays start against San Francisco. Its an injury that will require about eight weeks to heal. He finished a disappointing campaign just 14-13 with a career-worst 4. Jim Nance Jersey . The next step is a better finish. Bae played bogey-free Friday on another gorgeous day at Riviera for a 5-under 66, giving him a one-shot lead over Aaron Baddeley and Robert Garrigus going into the weekend. http:///...sey-large-1301f.html . The winner Saturday will remain in the elite 10-team field next year. "We talked about wanting to be disciplined and stick with our game plan and good things will come," Draisaitl said, who had two goals for the victors. CHASKA, Minn. --?Mark James played in the Ryder Cup seven times and captained the European side at Brookline in 1999. Here, the honorary life member of the European Tour gives his views on the 41st edition of the contest in Minnesota.Lee Westwood had a really bad time on Friday morning and there is a fair bit of pressure for him now to play well when he next gets a chance.He didnt just lose in the foursomes with Thomas Pieters, he looked unimpressive and out of sorts. I didnt see any part of his game that looked good.As a pairing it didnt come off and they failed to win a single hole, losing 5 and 4. But Lee was big enough to tell European captain Darren Clarke that his form meant he didnt warrant a place in the team in the afternoon, and that he wanted to hit some more on his own the next morning.He put some work in with his coach, Pete Cowen, on the range on Friday afternoon and he will have been stripping things back to basics with the hope of playing on Saturday afternoon.Lees performance hasnt taken away any of the question marks there were over him before this edition of the competition got underway, thats for certain; the doubts there were about him being in a position to play at his best here.Hes 43 years old and you do very well to play Ryder Cup at that age. If this is to be his last one, he would want so badly to at least go out winning a singles match and finishing with a win. That will be massively important for him.So he will be telling himself its just one sesssion -- anyone can have a bad day and be good the next. Richard Seymour Jersey. Hes experienced enough to shut out all the pressure and the stuff that goes on outside the Ryder Cup and concentrate on playing well next time out.Its fair to say Lee would have had to be really disappointed to drop out of two sessions, but it is a measure of what a team player he is that he volunteered to do that for the good of the European cause.For me, he doesnt need to prove anything as a Ryder Cup player after all that he has done. Hes played in seven winning teams and this is his 10th appearance in the competition.At least he will have taken something from the positive mood there would have been in the European team room at the end of the day.They will have been thinking they did really well to get back to 5-3. After the 4-0 whitewash in the morning, coming back like that was incredible.A bad afternoon would have meant the match was completely over for them. But Darren [Clarke] gave them a good talking-to at lunchtime and they came out with renewed vigour, and played some pretty good golf.There is everything to play for now but Europe really have to keep the hammer down in the foursomes on Saturday.They will have to be at their best against a very good American side because if the U.S. are given an inch, they will take a couple of miles.Mark James was talking to Leo Spall ' ' '
