Kennington is also a two-time winner at ACMS, but Ranger will be looking for his first win there after emerging triumphant in each of the two previous races this year. If having every champion in series history wasnt enough, there will be plenty of other worthy contenders for the Velocity Prairie Thunder 250 trophy. Jason Hathaway has won three of the last five Canadian Tire Series oval races and season co-points leader J.R. Fitzpatrick is a threat every time out. Additionally, Canadian open-wheel racing standout Alex Tagliani will make his first ACMS appearance to add to the events star power. All told, the winners of 80-percent of the 91 all-time Canadian Tire Series races will be in Saskatoon on Wednesday. The Velocity Prairie Thunder 250 will be the second half of the Canadian Tire Series annual western swing. This years jaunt began at Albertas Edmonton International Raceway last Friday. A second event in six days is now on tap with the series lone trip to Saskatchewan this season. Fast Facts: The Race: The sixth annual Velocity Prairie Thunder 250 will be the fifth of 11 events on the 2014 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 schedule, and the lone trip to Saskatchewan and Auto Clearing Motor Speedway. The Procedure: The maximum starting field is 24 cars, including provisionals. The first 21 cars will have secured starting positions through two-lap time trials while the remaining three spots will be awarded through the provisional process. The race is scheduled for 250 laps (83.25 miles). The Track: Auto Clearing Motor Speedway is a .333-mile oval with graduated banking. Saskatoon Stock Car Racing Association Ltd. originated from the Saskatoon Stock Car Racing Club that was formed in 1954. Racing in Saskatoon began at the 8th Street Racing Oval. In 1970, as a result of city expansion, stock-car racing moved to the current Prairieland Exhibition at Bridge City Raceway. In 1999, the City of Saskatoon expanded once again which paved the way for a new track, Auto Clearing Motor Speedway, to be built. Construction of the new track began in April 2005. Pole Winners: The first five Saskatoon races have produced three different pole winners. J.R. Fitzpatrick and D.J. Kennington have two apiece while Don Thompson Jr. scored the inaugural event pole in 2009. Fitzpatrick set the track qualifying record at 14.665 seconds (81.801 mph) in 2012. Race Winners: Kennington and Scott Steckly lead the way with two wins apiece while Pete Shepherd III also has a victory. Steckly won the inaugural race and reached ACMS Victory Lane again last year. Saskatoon Race Notes: Rangers Records: With his 19th career race win last week at Edmonton International Raceway, and his 14th career pole the week before that at Circuit ICAR, Andrew Ranger is tied for the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 all-time lead in both categories. Ranger now shares the victories record with new teammate D.J. Kennington and the poles mark is split with J.R. Fitzpatrick, who was the top qualifier last year at Auto Clearing Motor Speedway. Fitzpatrick, Dumoulin Also Tied at the Top: The 2014 season is now more than one-third complete and the competition is so close that theres actually a tie between Fitzpatrick and L.P. Dumoulin atop the championship standings. Both drivers have 162 tallies, 12 ahead of Ranger in third. Its only 18 points back to Jason Hathaway in fifth, with D.J. Kennington sitting fourth. Steckly Looks to Defend ACMS Win: Defending Velocity Prairie Thunder 250 winner Scott Steckly could use another victory this week at Auto Clearing to bolster his series championship defense. The three-time titlist has faced adversity through for races this season, but is hanging in there in sixth place in the standings, 30 points back of the leaders. A DNF in the season opener at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park had Steckly in an early hole but he followed with a pair of top fives. Last week at Edmonton he was two laps down at one point and rallied to an eighth-place finish.

. The fourth-year guard from Carleton University kicked off his varsity career with rookie of the year honours in 2011, before racking up three straight Mike Moser Memorial Trophies for outstanding player.BEREA, Ohio -- The Browns third straight loss included a damaging injury. Speedy return specialist Travis Benjamin, one of Clevelands top playmakers and one of the NFLs best punt returners, tore his anterior cruciate knee ligament in Sundays loss at Kansas City and will miss the remainder of the season. Benjamin needs surgery, which has not yet been scheduled. "Its a tough loss for us," Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said Monday, "but well have some guys step up." Benjamin is the second key Browns player to have his season ended by a torn ACL. Starting quarterback Brian Hoyer tore his right ACL while sliding at the end of a scramble on Oct. 3 against Buffalo, a game Benjamin turned around by returning a punt 79 yards for a touchdown and racking up a team record 179 yards in returns as Cleveland rallied for a 37-24 win. Chudzinski said Benjamin twisted his knee while planting on a return with 2:34 left in the third quarter. The Browns (3-5) have already felt Benjamins loss. With the second-year wide receiver on the sideline, Davone Bess took over return duties but fumbled while trying to catch a punt on the run in the foourth quarter. J.J. Wilcox Cowboys Jersey
. The muff was recovered by the Chiefs, who held on to remain unbeaten. "I had it," said Bess, who also mishandled three passes, including one on fourth down with 2:12 left. "When I got my eyes up to see where the defenders were, they were there and I must not have had it 100 per cent. Its just discipline. Ive got to look the ball all the way in and it starts in practice. " Benjamin, who was drafted in the fourth round last year from Miami, has been a major contributor for the Browns. Hes averaged 11.7 yard per punt return -- sixth in the league -- and his 86-yard kickoff return set up a TD for Cleveland on Oct. 20 against Green Bay. He also had five catches for 105 yards and rushed for 45 yards on an end-around. Chudzinski said Bess will continue to handle punt returns. Starting cornerback Joe Haden is another option, but Chudzinski would prefer not to use one of his best defensive players. "Its unfortunate with his injury, but Ive got to step up," Bess said. "Thats as simple as it gets. Theres nothing to talk about, to be down about. Its just to go out and get it."
