Austin Dillon wins overtime Daytona 500 as 2018 NASCAR season starts

Shannon Reynolds | 21 February, 2018, 22:29

"For me to be able to witness her last race, that feels pretty special to me, too".

The weather forecast is sparkling with highs predicted in the mid-80s under partly cloudy skies. "Thank you for the memories Nascar and Daytona".

And Patrick, as seen from the on-board camera in Alex Bowman's auto.

It was, however, very reminiscent of the man who once drove a similarly-coloured No. 3 Chevrolet for Richard Childress Racing: the late, great Dale Earnhardt. Earnhardt retired after the 2017 season.

"All in all, it's been a really, really cool experience", Patrick said. I can't tell if I made contact or not, but obviously he turned and there was nothing I could do.

'I think that's such a good thing, and we need more of that. Earnhardt was behind the wheel of No. 3 when he won his only Daytona 500 in 1998, and when he was killed in an accident on the final lap of the race three years later.

Bowman and Hamlin earned those starting positions in single-car qualifying held last Sunday.

Elliott will start fourth in Sunday's Great American Race after winning the second Can-Am Duel on Thursday night. "We are proud of our partnership with both of them as Austin wins his first Daytona 500 and Richard wins his third".

Keselowski said that Elliott simply got loose.

"It's so awesome to take the 3 auto back to victory lane twenty years later. That would be the one that counts".

The breakout is coming for Chase Elliott.

Russian FM Dismisses as 'Blabber' US Charges of Meddling in 2016 Elections
The indictments made no judgement however on whether the alleged Russian efforts had altered the outcome of the election. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov also pushed back, saying he viewed the allegations as "just blather".

Circling the drain on gun violence
Americans make up somewhere around 4.4 percent of the world's population but own over 40 percent of the world's guns. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign - there is no collusion.

"We were able to do this a year ago, win the Duel", Elliott said.

Ford stock cars, specifically Team Penske, have been the dominating brand during this Speedweeks. He said Daytona carries a lot of weight.

Her NASCAR farewell fittingly came on the sport's biggest stage - in front of 101,000 fans at Daytona.

The entire field is facing new challenges in this old race. The accident destroyed RBR's primary auto and forced the team to thrash all day Friday to ready the backup vehicle.

Although drivers have come and gone, much of the core group at RBR has remained the same over the past 20 years. For those playing along at home, he's won fifty per cent of the sport's crown jewel events - with only the Southern 500 at Darlington and a Brickyard 400 win at Indianapolis to come - in less than a year. With him driving the new Chevrolet Camaro, it may not be out of the question.

"There's a lot of stuff that's riding this weekend", Wallace said. That's a little sexist.' So then I really went for it, and I think one of the actors puked at one point.

Almirola, in his debut race for Stewart-Haas Racing, was devastated.

In the blue-collar world of NASCAR, you can become a hero by working your way up through the ranks to the Cup Series.

"It's an awesome win", said Childress, car-owner for six of Earnhardt's seven Cup titles. Patrick, who announced in November that she would be retiring, wrecked her No. 7 GoDaddy Chevrolet just past halfway on Lap 101 as she got swept up in a multi-car collision on the track.

In the UNOH Fanzone, I visited with fans to learn about their experience in the infield.
