MS native Ricky Stenhouse Jr. wins first NASCAR Cup race

MS native Ricky Stenhouse Jr. wins first NASCAR Cup race

With the track position for Stage 2, Hamlin set sail and led all 55 laps of the stage. He also failed to score a single stage point. The power of the Toyotas and the ability to draft together has been a talking point around the garage for some time now, with Busch and Denny Hamlin demonstrating late in the race exactly why. He got that lap back due to a caution with 10 laps to go but could only recover to a 22nd place finish.

“Im pretty happy, ” Earnhardt said. "I'm all good", Allmendinger said. We were about to wreck. If a team can't fix its damage on pit road in five minutes, the auto is ruled out of the race. Kenseth's problems compounded with a flat tire that put him a lap down.

"I was really anxious that the caution was going to come out, especially when the 22 [of Logano] just barely got a nose ahead getting into Turn 3", Almirola said. It's been a good one in the past. It was real close to coming off.

And again, he was sitting third with less than 20 laps remaining when it happened.

Game No. 41 Preview: Houston Astros at Miami Marlins
Betts began the game with his seventh homer and 10th career leadoff shot, tying Jacoby Ellsbury for the franchise record. Miami loaded the bases in the first on two hit batters and a walk, but Derek Dietrich grounded out to end the threat.


"We've been awful for a long time, but this year, every race, we're getting better and better", Stenhouse told Fox Sports.

Wallace, saying he felt the effects of the hard crash, was OK with the decision, though he had no clue about it before he was told by a reporter afterward.

Earnhardt leads all active drivers at Talladega with six wins, but has never started from the pole.

But no one had enough to catch leader Busch as the field was setting itself up for a frantic dash to the finish. And he just turned left and passed me after hitting me. She's been so supportive and knows how hard that I've worked.

BJP says 'will welcome Rajinikanth's entry into politics'
When reporters again asked him about politics today, Rajini said: "Please don't ask questions on politics". On Day 3 of Rajinikanth's "special" darbar, the fans got a chance to interact with the Thalaiva.


"But obviously we had a great year in 2015". I think watching a race at Talladega is so different then anywhere else... "When you get your runs, who you get your runs from, and where you get them and how you make those runs into something that can be a positive for you. Now, everybody is just stuck side-by-side". "You can't say that anywhere else". "Everything that I've learned is from him, and you know, making sure that you have the right people around you is one of the things that he's all about, making sure that you have people that respect you, that will do anything for you, and man, he sacrificed a lot for me and my career". "I'd change a few things if I was the king of this deal. Talladega has been an awesome to us, so it stinks to not end up in victory lane, but we'll look forward to having another shot in the fall".

Dale Earnhardt Jr.s farewell tour has officially started. He still has just one top-10 (a fifth at Texas) and actually lost a spot in the championship standings to 25th.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr.'s first career NASCAR victory party started sans his father, who had been detained by Talladega Superspeedway security while attempting to make his way to Victory Lane in a weird sequence of events.

The drivers on the Fan Vote ballot are: AJ Allmendinger, Aric Almirola, Trevor Bayne, Ryan Blaney, Clint Bowyer, Landon Cassill, Matt DiBenedetto, Austin Dillon, Ty Dillon, Jeffrey Earnhardt, Chase Elliott, Timmy Hill, Erik Jones, Corey LaJoie, Michael McDowell, Paul Menard, Danica Patrick, David Ragan, Reed Sorenson, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Daniel Suarez and Cole Whitt.
