Joey Logano faces 'do-or-die' race — NASCAR notebook

"We went back and forth on some adjustments between the first and second rounds". Unfortunately our handling was a little too tight to start and once you go down a lap at Richmond it's hard to get it back.

Michael built the Core Four of Derek Jeter, Andy Pettitte, Mariano Rivera and Jorge Posada via the draft or free agency, the group that helped the Yankees win World Series titles in 1996, 1998, 1999 and 2000. For example, Newman's teammate Austin Dillon, who is averaging a finish of 22.0, is listed at $7,400 and has yet to post a top 10 finish at Richmond in seven tries.

One team, in particular, has shown increased speed and performance throughout the summer. Harvick suggested that after the regular season finale, before the first playoff race NASCAR hold a "wild card" event at a short track of their choosing.

With one race remaining before the playoff begins and six spots still up for grabs, next week's Chicagoland 300 is going to be an intense atmosphere as drivers look to secure their chance at competing for a championship over the final two months of the season.

Frogs the hammer, Hogs the nail
The Frogs now have four defensive tackles on their depth chart listed at 295 pounds or more, compared to just one last season. Meanwhile, the Hogs defense held Florida A&M to 2.9 yards per play and also scored a touchdown of its own.

Busch is a four-time victor of this race, as well as the defending champion.

"We have the tools to do it. I mean, I think everything tomorrow night for us is just be aggressive and race the way we've been the last few weeks and really most of the season". We're not feeling any pressure - as far as have to win tomorrow or have to win next week.

Amongst those top 16 points drivers, Chase Elliott, Matt Kenseth, and Jamie McMurray are locked in a battle between themselves to not be 16th in points and on the hot seat should an outside driver win the race. The team is still the same team that nearly won the championship a year ago. The only shame is that he doesn't have enough races to qualify for the Xfinity Series playoffs because he's dominated this year with five victories and nine top-10 finishes in 10 races. He understands what it takes to advance through the format.

Jones qualified 10th and is confident he has a vehicle good enough to contend.

Oil prices decline on Hurricane Irma
As of late Thursday, data from S&P Global Platts showed that 12.8% of USA refinery capacity was down due to the storm. US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were at $48.98 barrel, 11 cents below their last settlement.

"We feel like we need a victory to feel good about it".

Sadler has a huge advantage entering the playoffs. Accordingly, Logano lost the right to count the encumbered victory toward qualification for the playoff.

"I know personally it had nothing to do with winning the races", Hamlin said of the infraction. It's all about Homestead. "He and I may not always get along, but I have a lot of respect for his talent". "I am excited about the challenge, and hopefully we can make it work out". But it is about one race. "When you race with Kyle, you race with the best".
