Racing needs all the personalities, polite and rude

Racing needs all the personalities, polite and rude

The fast-food restaurant chain was Yarborough's sponsor, although a young Johnson didn't realize that.

The same number in the record book as that California kid who grew up to become even better than his idol.

He circled the mile track one more time and took the checkered flag under caution.

However, David Ragan crashed in turn 1 to bring out the caution flag and send the scheduled 400-lap race into overtime. Johnson wore a helmet commemorating Yarborough in the race. He tweeted during the weekend, "Growing up in El Cajon I never imagined I would have a chance to tie Cale in wins".

The win did not come easy for the seven-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion. I mean, I can probably get better and go to training and classes and everything else, but I don't know. I think that is good value for the defending champion of the race. I was very disappointed. "That's why I'm able to continue to have the relationships and the sponsorships that I do". He also is now the third driver in NASCAR history to have at least eleven wins at one track. However, he is still starting in the Top 5 with a vehicle that has performed well all weekend, and in the spring race at Dover past year, he led 85 laps and finished second.

"I just spun my tires really bad", he said. Earnhardt will retire at the end of the season.

"The conditions were really tough today", Johnson said.

His says loud and clear he has a deep respect for NASCAR's greats.

The first stage of the race saw Martin Truex Jr win his series-best seventh race stage, followed by Larson.

She was in damage control mode, with Labour surging in the polls in recent weeks. At one point a heckler yelled, "You've clearly failed".

"We ran out of time I guess", Truex said. "Jimmie did what he had to do to get the best launch he needed to", said Larson. He has won twice in his career at Dover with an average finish of 14.708 and a driver rating of 105.4. With the next Cup Series win, Johnson will catch Darrell Waltrip and Bobby Allison on the all-time win list. By the end of the first stage, Johnson had moved up to fifth.

If you grow up in California where there are no Hardee's restaurants, and your favorite NASCAR driver raced a stock vehicle and wore a fire suit plastered with the fast-food chain's logos, you might begin to think that the stores served an even greater goal than just serving up just hamburgers and fresh biscuits.

Truex rallied from 15th in the final 50 laps for third. Johnson led only the final five laps.

Kyle Busch has been a magnet for controversy since breaking into NASCAR's top series full time in 2005, and while he's mellowed in recent years, he still has his moments.

Pritchett raced to the fourth No. 1 qualifier of her career and third of the season with a track-record time of 3.673 seconds at 328.86 miles per hour during the third session. Larson had a comfortable lead and victory seemed certain.

Led by Busch, Toyota had the first four drivers Friday in the qualifying session. 81-122; K. Larson 123-146; M. McDowell 147-150; K. Larson 151-194; Kyle Busch 195; K. Larson 196-211; M. Truex Jr.

Much like Austin Dillon's win the previous week when Johnson ran out of gas, it all comes down to being at the right place at the right time.

That wasn't all. A caution with four laps remaining came out as Kyle Larson held a huge lead over Johnson.
