NASCAR tweaks qualifying again for Richmond

I've always loved coming here. "I had not front turn". I got there, I was just a couple laps late getting there. Just had to hold him off. "It was real important to be out front tonight, but thanks to the pit crew they kept us out there".

"When you're frustrated with second, it's a good sign of where your team is", he said, finding the bright side.

But when Truex went low to block that maneuver in turn three on the last lap, Logano was forced up high to try and diamond the corner, going where Truex wasn't in the end.

Logano held on for second. With about 40 to go, Bowyer almost caught him, but Truex never let him pass and finally, Bowyer relinquished the second spot to Joey Logano, who seemed to have the faster auto of the top two. The last time an apparent race victor in NASCAR's top division was disqualified came on April 17, 1960, when Emanuel Zervakis' victory at Wilson (N.C.) Speedway was thrown out because of an oversized fuel tank on his No. 85 Chevrolet.

He was running down Martin Truex Jr.in the final laps and appeared to have a shot at victory. "I hope it was a hell of a show".

Rejection by foster family fuelled my career: De Bruyne
You can see the pattern emerging. "I started two of the first four games of the season, after the fourth game that was it". After all, only three managers have won it more times . "I know the people say I came here to win the Champions League ".


Pole victor Kevin Harvick ran fourth, followed by Denny Hamlin and Austin Dillon. Also, he has a 27-point lead over Denny Hamlin and two wins in the driver standings. "I had no front tire and was just real, real tight that last run". "Ran out of time there".

"I was watching them race and thought that if I was just patient and saved my tires, I could get them", he added. Fun race, but, gosh, two weeks in a row I felt like we had a auto that could win the race, and we haven't won.

Wicked fast on the long runs, a 148-lap green-flag run to end the event played directly in his favor.

At the same time, Truex gave JGR its third straight victory in NASCAR's top series and sixth in nine races this season.

"There are times when teams get on a run and a roll, and I appreciate our guys", Gibbs said.

Don't Count Out The Denver Nuggets
Dario Saric missed on the other end and Paul Millsap hit another 3-pointer with 1:30 left to pull Denver within two. The comeback gave the Nuggets a measure of momentum heading into their first playoff series since 2012-13.


"Sometimes in pro sports, you know, you get on a roll, things go well", Gibbs said. I think that's where our strength is and we've had some moments in some of these races that we've kind of been knocked off that we've been able to rebound and come back up through.

The post-race process is part of a new, more timely approach to inspection for all three NASCAR national series. They include the cars of local favorite Denny Hamlin, a three-time victor on the 0.75-mile oval, Chase Elliott and Matt Tifft.

As a result, NASCAR disqualified their qualifying speeds, sending them to the rear of the field, disallowed their pit stall selections and ejected one engineer from each team for the race.

Four of the provisional top-10 qualifiers failed inspection - Jones, Chase Elliott, Daniel Suarez and Jimmie Johnson.

Other cars that failed inspection include those of Aric Almirola, Denny Hamlin, Matt Tifft and Joey Gase.

Babcock's options as replacements for his third-line centre include Marleau and William Nylander , but neither scenario is ideal. It would stink, it would be worthy of criticism, but you move on and bring him back next season without thinking twice about it.


Kyle Larson's slow start to the season continued, giving him an early night.
