Clint Bowyer breaks 190-race losing streak to win at Martinsville

Adjust Comment Print

The win was Bowyer's first with SHR, his first on the.526-mile track at Martinsville in Virginia and the ninth of his NASCAR career.

Busch led only 24 laps in the early going of this one, but he'd nip at the heels of the leaders all afternoon in this 500-lap battle. Menard won in his first season at Richard Childress Racing, and then not again since despite making a start in every single NASCAR Cup Series race over that stretch.

Due to snowy conditions, the track announced hours before Sunday's action that both events have been postponed to Monday.

The most recent victor at Martinsville, Kyle Busch, starts second.

Blast kills 2 in Egypt ahead of presidential poll
Sisi gave the armed forces and police a three-month deadline in November to wipe out the jihadists. Pictures shared on social media showed smoke billowing from the burned out remains of a vehicle .

Blaney's auto looked like it was untouchable in the second stage, but adjustments during the caution seemed to kill his momentum. Kyle Busch eventually won the race. The highest-finishing Chevrolet driver in the second stage was AJ Allmendinger at eighth.

My favorite to win this week is local favorite Denny Hamlin and his #11 FedEx Toyota.

It was the sixth straight Martinsville race in which Busch finished in the top five.

Blaney dominated Stage 2, winning his first stage on a short track, by leading 121 of the 130 laps with Bowyer trying to chase him down before finishing second.

Missoulians march against gun violence
Marches are also scheduled in the United Kingdom and Ireland, with a rallies in London, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Belfast and Dublin. Gun violence has been a topic of conversation-and protest-among many Madison community members, students and borough officials.

Clint Bowyer was fifth in the stage, one spot ahead of Stewart-Haas Racing teammate Kevin Harvick. William Byron placed 20th, while Bubba Wallace was 34th - 14 laps off the pace. Add in his five career wins at the Paperclip, he's got the track history and this year's momentum to earn him a 6th career win.

NASCAR was forced to postpone the scheduled Cup Series race and the resumption of the Truck Series race at Martinsville Speedway on Sunday because of snow.

A wintry mix forced NASCAR to cancel nearly two days of activities and turn its first stop at a short track this season into a Monday afternoon race.

Martin Truex Jr. will be on the pole for Sunday's NASCAR 2018 STP 500 at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway after Saturday's qualifying was called off for bad weather. Johnson is still looking to snap his 28 race winless streak, but I don't think this will be the week it happens. The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race was stopped after 23 laps on Saturday after the snow began to fall.

Messi to participate in match against Spanish national team
Messi will return to training with Barca later this week, and the club expect him to be available for Saturday's trip to Sevilla. He has yet to make a decision on his Argentina future but would be 35 by the time of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
