MENCS: Jimmie Johnson Victorious at Dover International Speedway Featured

He's got a golden horseshoe somewhere, and he's really good at executing, so I've just got to get better at that. We had a really good vehicle all day and good track position. "And it's just insane for us to think when we have cars running the same speed, all 40 cars within such a small window of time, that we can expect any passing on the race track". I needed it to stay green there at the end.

"I can't even tell you how challenging this track was with these cars and this aero package and all that".

Considering that they have impressed at their first visits to tracks in a Cup vehicle, and in just a few short weeks many of those circuits start to be revisited, the chances are that they will continue to thrive. Ryan Newman (1 lap led); 5.

"The conditions were really tough today".

"I kind of helped come up with that idea, so this is going to be kind of unusual", Earnhardt explained in a post-race Periscope, "but I think they should get rid of the overtime line at all the racetracks except for Daytona and Talladega". "We line-up double-file and somebody got loose and just took us out". Yarborough had to dig through the dirt to get under the fence at the Darlington Raceway as a boy without the means to buy a ticket and started his racing career after lying about his age to drive in his first Southern 500 three years before his 21st birthday. A major wreck happened behind Johnson and Larson, as Ty Dillon spun from the 4th position, collecting several of the top running cars.

After the second stage, won by Darrell Wallace Jr., divergent pit strategies shuffled Larson and Blaney to 13th and 14th, respectively, for a restart on Lap 128. Finchum, who entered the race hoping to gain experience and earn approval from NASCAR officials to run larger ovals later this season, came away from his high-speed test upbeat. As a result, he restarted 17th. He drove the entire 10-race Chase last season with a tribute helmet to Earnhardt and Petty.

"He (Jimmie Johnson) did what he had to do to get the best launch that he did".

Kyle Busch started from the pole position and now resides fourth in the standings.

Fans are still making up their mind about NASCAR's new stage racing, but someone whose life is much better for it is Martin Truex Jr.

For Truex, who led the second most laps - 102, the turning point came when he pitted for tires on Lap 325. Jeff Gordon sits in third with 93 with David Pearson's 105 wins sitting in second.

"Obviously I didn't need that last caution", Larson said.

Robert Hight topped the Funny Car field, and Tanner Gray was the fastest in Pro Stock. "Two left-side tires, I was able to lead a lot of laps". He has six career victories, five in two-plus seasons. Kevin Harvick took the 9th spot. We just got the (special Yarborough) helmet; I wasn't sure we'd get it in time.

The seven-time Cup Series champion only led seven laps on a day where he started from the rear of field for a gear change. Truex won both Stage 1 and Stage 2 at Dover, giving him eight stage victories in 2017-the most of any Cup Series driver.

His competed in 560 races over a career that spanned 31 years that ended in his retirement after the end of the 1988 season.

Kyle Larson leads a pack during last year's race.

Only his teammate Chase Elliott has a better average finish, but he has only competed in two cup races on the Monster Mile.
