NASCAR drivers salute fans with this cool pre-race gesture at Richmond

NASCAR drivers salute fans with this cool pre-race gesture at Richmond

We ran like we should have tonight. The team is still the same team that nearly won the championship past year.

The Hendrick Motorsports driver ran better than 13th much of the day, but he made a strategy play to try to win.

Taylor raced for an inside-the-park grand slam when center fielder Odubel Herrera misplayed his line drive, and the Washington Nationals moved closer to a second straight NL East title with an 11-10 win over the Philadelphia Phillies Friday night.

"That's all we could do to try to win; I don't know that we could have outrun the top three", Earnhardt said. We had a long-run auto, though, that was really fast.

Keselowski and Busch - who led a race-high 182 laps - battled door-to-door for several laps for the Stage 2 win, with Keselowski taking the win when Busch brushed the wall with two laps to go.

And if you're following along the branches of the Earnhardt family tree, that makes Bobby Earnhardt the grandson of seven-time NASCAR champion Dale Earnhardt, and the great-grandson of NASCAR pioneer Ralph Earnhardt. "We've still got a good race track coming up for us".

Earnhardt had said Friday he hadn't allowed himself to think much about a fairy-tale ending to the season. Bowyer and Bayne drive a Ford - a company that hasn't won since Stenhouse at Daytona on July 1 - while Earnhardt hasn't had a top-10 finish since June 25 on the road course at Sonoma, Calif.

That leaves some of the sport's biggest names are in trouble to be relevant in the final 10 races of the season.

However, all that could change in an instant should one of those below him in the standings capture the checkered flag Saturday night.

"It's on us. We can't really put it on anybody else". "We're just lacking speed in general". With just one point over Jamie McMurray, who now holds the final playoff spot, a win by those on the outside could easily knock Kenseth out. Greg Ives, the regular crew chief for the No. 88 team, was suspended for one race due to a safety violation for missing lug nuts following a post-race check last weekend at Darlington Raceway.

And if Logano can win on Saturday night, he feels like he and crew chief Todd Gordon still have all the resources needed to return to Homestead-Miami Speedway with a chance to win a championship.
