Bojangles' Southern 500 Playbook & Lineups — DFS NASCAR

It helped that his biggest challenger, Hamlin, missed pit road while leading on Lap 314.

"Yeah, I mean, you know who you're racing with and some guys have certain tendencies and you know there's certain guys where you can stick it out there and certain guys you probably shouldn't".

It's Labor Day weekend, Darlington Raceway and the Southern 500, all celebrated with a throwback weekend as the cars, drivers and even the NBC announcers take a step back in time to pay tribute and honor the roots of NASCAR.

"This is the Southern 500", Hamlin said. The race for the title tightened significantly with one race left, the GoPro Grand Prix Sonoma 500 on September 17, when points are double. People still want their photos taken with Martin. Whether it's good history or bad history will depend on if NASCAR's best can rise to the top or if they wind up on the bottom. - Hamlin on coming from behind to win. "Gentleman Jim Whitt" won the track championship at Cajon Speedway in 1969 and his son Tobin, Cole's dad, won the track championship 20 years later in the "Lime Green Machine". "What I can say for 21 years is the Southern Hospitality thing is real, we've made great friends". Kaitlyn Dowell also from NY came for the second year.

Don't be surprised to see some drivers getting hot under the helmet this weekend on a track known for tight corners and flaring tempers.

Gov. Rick Scott wins legal battle against State Attorney Aramis Ayala
Governor Scott has not claimed that any of these grounds for exercising his constitutional removal authority applies in this case. The governor's office issued a statement, calling Ayala's decision "shortsighted" and the Supreme Court ruling "a great victory".

The retro scheme idea, cooked up by NASCAR a few years ago, has become one of the best ideas amid rough times for the sport. And when Truex took the green/checkered flag under caution at the end of the second 100-lap stage, he clinched the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series regular-season championship. "At a place like Darlington, it can get you in trouble". However, Hamlin's dominance for much of the race almost went for naught as a result of the aforementioned pit road mistake.

Meanwhile, Truex finished eighth but clinched the regular-season title for the Monster Energy Series Sunday thanks to two stage wins. He got up to Truex's bumper with three laps to go before moving low around lapped traffic to take the lead. And today, that gives him the lead pit area that he hopes will keep him out front in tight situations. He had accomplished the same feat in 2010. Noah Gragson was second, and Grala recovered to finish third. "If you don't win here with Denny, you probably didn't have a good enough auto".

Truex is seeking his second straight Southern 500 and his ninth victory in two years with Denver-based Furniture Row Racing.

Almirola, wrecking two times in the last four races, hasn't found the form he had before fracturing his vertebrae in a wreck at Kansas in May.

"I think that it's paying off, and hopefully it pays off 11, 12 races from now".
