Chase Elliott, Denny Hamlin Win NASCAR Duels at Daytona

Dale Earnhardt Jr., in his first start since last June, will be next to Elliott on the front row when the green flag drops.

The subject of concussions came up during Daytona 500 media day at Daytona International Speedway after Dale Earnhardt Jr. missed half a season previous year to battle the symptoms.

Polesitter Chase Elliott led the race more than any other driver, but his fuel tank dwindled in the final laps and he fell back into the pack. Sitting in 15th place during the final restart with 15 laps to go, Earnhardt used a draft with Kenny Wallace to storm to the front. I would like to race more.

The Dillon brothers also come big racing family. You don't blame 'em for doing their own thing. It just really depends on a lot of different things.

10 most iconic quotes on Real Madrid
Real Madrid are now second in La Liga but can leapfrog Barcelona and go back into first if they beat the Yellow Submarine tonight. Nicola Sansone (hamstring) and Jose Angel (calf) are both sidelined through injury for the hosts.

The scheduled breaks meant teams tried non-traditional strategies with pit stops knowing they would be guaranteed the option to pit at the two known breaks. McMurray is very smart on restrictor plate tracks and that added with a great auto could pay off when it's all said and done. That's why he believed he could see the air around his auto. As Johnson's vehicle got spun around, Harvick, Danica Patrick, Clint Bowyer and Kurt Busch were collected.

Earnhardt said he never hesitated to ask his physician, Dr. Micky Collins, the pointed questions about the consequences of continuing to race.

Taking a look at recent driver performances at Daytona is key.

Knowing how hard he worked to get healthy and back in the race auto, he really just wants to dictate his final racing years himself and not have a doctor be the one to end his career. It's just apples and oranges as far as how they experience and I've experienced it.

Moyes: Going to Everton "was never going to be easy"
We are not that far away when winning a few games might turn things around. We are full of confidence but we have to show a good level on the pitch.

Logano, the 2015 Daytona 500 victor, won the Clash at Daytona on February 19 with the help of Keselowski's wreck on the final lap of the 75-lap race that was largely dominated by the quartet of Gibbs drivers. You have to keep that optimism, and you have to show up each time with the enthusiasm to go after it as a fresh start and as a championship weekend all wrapped into one. "I didn't appreciate it very much". "This is the previous year of my (contract)".

Earnhardt's Hendrick teammate, and reigning champion, Jimmie Johnson's poor luck has continued at Daytona.

For his career, he boasts 80 wins, 218 top-five and 330 top-10 finishes.

Points were not the goal for Elliott, though. "It's all what you can do to help yourself". Interestingly enough, the last NASCAR driver to achieve this trifecta was Elliott's father, Bill Elliott, in 1985. In the nightcap, Dale Earnhardt Jr. - who led for 53 circuits - zigged too late when Denny Hamlin zagged with two laps left, and Hamlin led an organized aero charge to the checkers. Earnhardt lost the draft and wound up sixth. "We had to operate on a lot of assumptions coming into tonight because we didn't really have anything to go on". A driver who's willing to block a hard-charging line of traffic or jump out of line during the stretch drive is just as likely to end up on his roof as in Victory Lane.

Sacked Ranieri says goodbye to Leicester stars
They sorted these things around (it) and when I spoke to him he told me he felt really well when he was running outside. Reds boss Klopp said: "For me there have been a few unusual decisions in 16/17: Brexit , Trump, Ranieri".

"There's nothing better than having somebody like Dale Jr. going so far as to get out of the auto for as long as he did and saying, 'Hey, I have a problem, ' because it makes it more available for everyone else".
