BRISTOL, Tenn. -- Ricky Stenhouse Jr. last week hugged Tim Clauson, the father of Bryan Clauson, when they noticed a grasshopper was between them on a fence.The grasshopper reminded them of Bryan, the 27-year-old hot shoe who did not like bugs and had been pestered by a grasshopper a few days before?his death Aug. 7 from injuries suffered a night earlier in a crash at the Belleville (Kansas) Midget Nationals.The grasshopper sightings have taken on extra meaning in the past 12 days for Clausons family, including fiancée Lauren Stewart, and those in the sprint car world. It has been those moments and the camaraderie of the sprint car community last week at Knoxville (Iowa) Raceway that helped NASCAR drivers grieve before arriving to compete this week at Bristol Motor Speedway.When we were sitting in the motor home, Lauren was messing around with Bryans suit a couple days after he had passed and a grasshopper came out from underneath in between his suit, so [we were] thinking that was a sign that Bryan was still there with us, Stenhouse said Friday morning.I think a lot of people have seen a lot of moments like that. ... Its kind of cool just keeping your eyes open for it, but it was really important to spend a lot of time with Tim and everybody. We were all in the motor home just talking things out. It was good for all of us to be with each other.Stenhouse, who has driven occasional races with Clausons family team and was a roommate of Clausons several years ago, drove Clausons sprint car during pace laps Aug. 11 during the four-day sprint car Knoxville Nationals. The event attracts many of the top sprint car teams in the nation, not only for serious competition but also as a summer festival where the postrace parties last deep into the night.To get back in his car and give it another trip around Knoxville -- which he really loved, being at Knoxville -- there was not a dry eye in Knoxville when we took that car around, Stenhouse said. As Bryan always said, we parked it in Victory Lane for him, and it was super emotional.Camping World Truck Series driver Rico Abreu went and won the feature Friday night at Knoxville. Chip Ganassi Racings Kyle Larson finished fifth in the main event Saturday.It was a really up-and-down week with [remembering] Clauson, Abreu said. There were so many emotions. ... It was a fun week. We were up until 6 a.m. every day, partying and hanging out.That hanging out included telling Clauson stories and being with family members.Early in the week, when it all was still really fresh in the shock, everyone was stunned and sad, Larson said. People that didnt even know Bryan and Lauren personally, them seeing Lauren and his family at the races, helped them realize they were accepting what happened [and] makes everybody more strong.Larson was friends with Clauson, and Larsons girlfriend, Katelyn Sweet, is good friends with Stewart. They spent hours with the family after they arrived at the track.Seeing how strong she was made everybody kind of heal a little bit quicker, Larson said. When we got to hang out with Bryans family, too, the next couple of days, also seeing how strong they are all being and listening to old stories and stuff was really nice.I cant imagine going through what any of them are going through. Its amazing how strong theyre being and how positive they are.Clauson had won 112 United States Auto Club features and was on a quest to compete in 200 events this year, winning a race the night of the day he raced in the Indianapolis 500. The Noblesville, Indiana, racer also had NASCAR ties, having competed in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in 2007 and 2008.Stenhouse will carry Clausons 2008 Xfinity paint scheme on his Roush Fenway Racing Sprint Cup car this weekend at Bristol, complete with Clausons name above the drivers door. This weekend, Stenhouse and Larson will wear pink helmets, with Clauson logos, that will be donated to charity at the Chili Bowl Midget Nationals in January.Even though he was younger, I kind of always looked at him as an older brother because he kind of did everything before I did, Stenhouse said. He let me move in with him, and we had a lot of fun in North Carolina.He showed me the ropes of stock car racing, and then obviously he was the best there was running sprint cars, so to be able to run his paint scheme, his family is super excited.The family is expected to attend the race Saturday night at Bristol. Stewarts family runs a racing merchandise business, so it was natural for her and Clausons family to go to Knoxville in the days after his death and continue to attend races.I wasnt really looking forward to going after everything that happened, but being with the racing family and the community there was the best thing for everybody, especially ... when [his family] came and we were able to hang out all night, Stenhouse said.We were telling stories until 5 a.m. on Thursday night, Friday morning about all the good stories that we had of Bryan and the amazing things he did inside and out of the race car.

No. 24 North Carolina | Top 25No. 25: San Diego StateLast Season: 11-3?(8-0 Mountain West West)For the Aztecs, a bad start is no reason to panic. Last season they opened 1 -- 3 before winning the last 10 games, and this year they face a tough test out of the gate against Cal and are a toss-up on the road at Northern Illinois. Theyll rely heavily on their defense, which allowed just 16.4 points per game last year. On offense, RB?Donnel Pumphrey?turned down the NFL to keep?playing with the Aztecs and will break almost all of Marshall Faulks career records if he stays healthy. Dont be surprised to see San Diego State in the Mountain West championship game.San Diego States chances to win each game 09.03 vs. UNH: 96.3% 09.10 vs. Cal: 44.7% 09.17 @ Northern Illinois: 48.7% 10.01 @ South Alabama: 88.6% 10.08 vs. UNLV: 86.7% 10.14 @ Fresno State: 77.3% 10.21 vs. San Jose State: 69.6% 10.28 @ Utah State: 60.1% 11.05 vs. Hawaii: 94.2% 11.12 @ Nevada: 63.2% 11.19 @ Wyoming: 77.0% 11.26 vs. Colorado State: 84.3%If the Aztecs get by Cal in Week 2, itll be fair to wonder if an undefeated regular-season is attainable (though 10-2 is more realistic) behind the best running back most of the country has never heard of: Donnel Pumphrey. -- Kyle BonaguraThe AAztecs, winners of 10 straight, only face one Power 5 opponent, and its a home game against Cal in Week 2.dddddddddddd They also miss Boise State on the regular-season schedule. If they get through the Golden Bears, dont be surprised to see a 12-0 run en route to the conference title game. -- Kevin GemmellThe Aztecs schedule sets up for a nice run at a 12-0 season. With Cal in week 2 and no scent of Boise State, San Diego State should be enjoying a Mountain West title and a nice bowl trip. -- Chantel JenningsThe Aztecs won 10 straight games to finish 2015, and theres reason to believe they can carry success over into 2015 with 14 starters returning, including star running back Donnel Pumphrey. A 10-2 finish and repeat Mountain West title isnt out of the realm of possibility here. -- David LombardiWith 14 starters back from a team that went a very quiet 11-3 in 2015, the Aztecs and Pumphrey could make some noise in the Mountain West this fall. How loud that noise will become hinges on beating California at home on Sept. 10, which could clear the way for a 12-0 season. ?-- Ted MillerNo. 24 North Carolina | Top 25 Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Stitched Jerseys Cheap NFL Gear Wholesale NFL Womens Jerseys Cheap NFL Black Jerseys Cheap NFL Autographed Jerseys Wholesale Stitched Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys Outlet Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Cheap Jerseys Throwback Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
