Kyle Busch scores $1 million with All-Star race victory

Kyle Busch scores $1 million with All-Star race victory

Busch restarted third behind Brad Keselowski-who was on older tire. Kyle Busch will start alongside Larson on the front row.

Saturday night, Busch didn't care about dirty air or aero-push or anything else.

Pole victor Kyle Larson won the first two stages of the All-Star race leading all 40 laps.

"The Cup auto just never is put together the whole way it needs to be", Busch said, referencing that his 0-for-26 mark in the sport's top Series was "very, very frustrating" in light of his Charlotte success in other series. "I hope the racing is really exciting".

Campaigning suspended after Manchester blast
My thoughts are with the great people of Manchester and also Ari and her team, said his former band mate Niall Horan. Police cars, bomb-disposal units and 60 ambulances raced to the scene as the scale of the carnage became clear.

Pole-sitter Larson swept a caution-free Stage 1 and 2 while Johnson won Stage 3. There is reason to celebrate big. Putting on tires that only gain three to four tenths and fall off more than the primaries is not enough to entice teams to employ them for strategy. Called the longest day in racing, the Coca-Cola 600 takes place next Sunday, following the Indianapolis 500. We weren't quite the fastest auto, but we made the right changes when it mattered most. His price tag still hasn't caught up to his performance, and he should make an excellent contrarian option to build around in GPPs for at least a few more trips to mile-and-a-half tracks.

The second segment featured more of the same, as Ryan Blaney, who qualified second and started in first after Bowyer's exit, led all 20 laps and punched his ticket to the main event. It could long-term lead to a second tire from Goodyear, but short-term has to deliver a real show Saturday night. "They'd be able to hold that lane back, especially Kyle (Busch) and how good he is on restarts. And it just didn't happen".

"Once I got that opportunity to get there, I knew it was going to be now or never".

I also highlighted a couple of drivers who are having strong years but are actually a little overrated based on the scoring categories being used at DraftKings. "I thought we had it most of the race, but that's how racing goes". He wasn't handling too well at the start of the run, but I just drove too hard.

Trump tests waters for Mideast peace in meeting with Abbas
ESTRIN: Near the Western Wall today, an Israeli restaurant owner and his manager argued whether Trump will be good for Israel. It later annexed east Jerusalem in a move never recognised by the global community and claims the entire city as its capital.

Larson dominated the first two 20-lap stages of the race.

The idea of an option tire changed the thinking for the crews, and should be one that continues for next year, if something different doesn't come up before then. "We came down pit road the leader and three people passed us". But they didn't say that all four had to be left on or pulled off at the same time, as Clint Bowyer's No. 14 team pointed out during tonight's race.

"Restarting in fifth, I knew I was in trouble", Larson said.

This blog is really not about what you think it is. "I'm just mad that we weren't in the lead during it". Sometimes it works out, and sometimes it doesn't. We weren't quite the fastest auto, but we made the right moves when it mattered most. That was kind of the difference in the race for us. As with so many other races on the circuit's 1.5-mile tracks, what blew over the vehicle was more important that what it sat on.

Warriors Looking to Close Out Spurs Monday Night
Leonard was injured on the play and the Spurs have put up little resistance since - Golden State is now up 3-0 in the series. The Warriors picked up a 120-108 win at San Antonio in Game 3 to go up 3-0 in the series on Saturday night.

Four Blue Oval Fusions made the 10-car, 10-lap final stage. Moving to the inside in an attempt to get past Elliott, Jones clipped the infield grass and ruined his chances when the splitter dug in. He led flag to flag in each of the two segments, and in theory should have won the race. Kurt Busch, Jamie McMurray, Kevin Harvick, Chase Elliott, Joey Logano, Brad Keselowski and Denny Hamlin rounded out the top 10.
