Matt Kenseth wins, but Brad Keselowski advances to championship — NASCAR at Phoenix

Share

The 2003 champion, Kenseth isn't getting a spectacular or months-long sendoff, but going out with a trip to Victory Lane in his second-to-last race - ending a winless streak that dated back to July 2016 - is flawless for the driver who the sport is going to miss. He will be trying to keep Denny Hamlin, Ryan Blaney, Chase Elliott and Jimmie Johnson behind him all day.

Pole-sitter and playoff driver Ryan Blaney led the first 10 laps before losing the lead to Elliott. Truex advances to Homestead next week and will compete with Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski for this season's championship.

In Warsaw 100 thousand people went on the March of nationalists
It is now the largest independence day event in Poland and one of the biggest nationalist marches anywhere in Europe . An estimated 60,000 people marched through Poland last night, carrying far-right symbols and chanting racist slurs.

Hamlin led for 193 laps on Sunday and was in position to make a run for the win when he saw the 21-year-old Elliott come up on his bumper in the Final Stage. Elliott kept his cool at Texas but with his spot in the title race on the line, Elliott tagged Hamlin, then passed Matt Kenseth for the lead with just under 40 laps to go. Johnson's day ended early thanks to a blown tire just before the end of Stage 2.

Stage 2: Hamlin dominated the second stage and cruised to a stage win without any fuss.
