Earnhardt Jr baffled by lack of success at Charlotte Motor Speedway


We're in the playoffs.

He needed to lead only two laps to win the Coca-Cola 600, and the big Carolina Panthers fan celebrated the win with a dab, quarterback Cam Newton's signature celebration dance. I've always said racing is about (more) than just driving so hard. I know Dale is up there smiling down because he would want this win, he would want to see it with Austin. I thought I'd saved enough early, where I could attack at the end, but I tried to wait as long as possible.

"When he ran out, I figured I'd go back in and save where I was lifting and it worked out", Dillon said. Hamlin's No. 11 team was able to fend off both Busch and Truex Jr.as well as Matt Kenseth en route to valuable playoff points.

Kevin Harvick will start alongside Kyle Busch on Sunday for NASCAR's longest race, a grueling 400-lap run on a 1 1/2 -mile oval. On Lap 20, five laps before a scheduled competition caution, a large piece of debris shot from the back of Jeffrey Earnhardt's smoking No. 33 vehicle into the path of Chase Elliott's No. 24 Chevrolet.

The debris knocked a hole in the nose of Elliott's auto, and flames erupted beneath the engine compartment as fluid spilled from the Chevy. "Like I said, fast cars, we'll keep coming back with them, hopefully get some more wins".

Three Mile Island power plant to close in 2019
Three Mile Island hasn't been profitable for five years, according to the company. However, Folmer emphasized that he was against a "bailout" of the nuclear plant .

"I didn't know we were thinking fuel", Johnson said. Like Busch, he simply ran out of time to run Dillon down.

Nobody could catch Kyle Larson when he was running in clean air during the first two 20-lap segments of the NASCAR All-Star race last weekend. You couldn't do anything. "It's a real bummer for our team".

"We totally eighty-sixed all that stuff we ran last week and we put in Jimmie's setup just like him", Earnhardt said. "Brad (39th) couldn't get stopped and ended up kind of finishing us off". I got underneath the vehicle when I got out and looked at.

Matt Kenseth and Denny Hamlin completed the top five, with Kurt Busch and rookie Erik Jones next up.

His lap time improved, but his longevity waned.

Palestinian Prisoner Hunger Strike Ends After 40 Days
Barghouti was negotiating with the Israeli authority on behalf of the prisoners in an attempt to end the strike before Ramadan. Barghouti has been touted as a possible future successor to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas .

They were joined by everyone else shortly after their incident when NASCAR officials shut down the race on Lap 143 because of lightning in the area. Truex, who led 392 of 400 laps a year ago, led 108 of the first 200 laps, which included a 1-hour, 40-minute rain delay.

The often bad luck of Martin Truex Jr. has been a running joke in NASCAR for awhile now, but Truex has actually been pretty good in the 2017 Cup Series season. The No. 42 Chevrolet battled, but eventually suffered a fatal blow towards the end of Stage 3. I think if not for that, we probably could've gotten the 3 (Dillon).

"I made a mistake and got loose", Larson said. We just really haven't been able to hit on how to get around here. It was Truex's fifth Top 5 of the season and he takes command of the points lead by 4 points over Kyle Larson. He beat Ricky Stenhouse Jr. on the restart and held off Kyle Busch to win the stage.

Dillon and four other cars skipped a green flag pit cycle with 30 laps left and as the others slowly ran out of fuel or were consumed by the field, Dillon was able to hold off the hard-charging Kyle Busch and the dominant auto of Martin Truex Jr.

Then Dillon's fuel-mileage play changed everything.
