Daytona 500: Time for Chase Elliott to stop chasing

The 2018 NASCAR season kicks off Sunday with 40 drivers suiting up to compete in the 60th running of the Daytona 500. No one expected that emotion to carry onto pit road.

"I never thought it would have happened after the path my career took". "Then you got to go outside and freeze your you-know-what off for 30 minutes at a time". Also, I'm not convinced that Darrell Wallace Jr. has sponsorship for the whole year.

On this recent trip, he and his father skipped chasing the clams and cast a wider net. I think the cars are a lot different than most guys expected them to be.

"I need to go and do my job better and win some races", Elliott said.

A Unique Point of ViewThis weekend's race will feature all the camera angles that racing fans have come to expect, plus a few new views that promise to enhance the broadcast.

A Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series field consists of 40 available starting spots. NASCAR can't replace these icons, and it will take some time for the sport to develop similar household names. The Cup Series season could still start with the Daytona 500 in February.

"It's been a insane, busy offseason", he said. He has 12 top-five finishes previous year, including five runner-ups.

"I don't think it's hard to reprogram or refocus for next year, just because after you get knocked out you're kind of ready for the next year to start, you know?" "Last year we showed people that we could be a contender, where now this year people are pointing and looking at us that we could potentially be a championship favorite". "But I think we would have gotten in anyway".

We also have many other books on individual drivers. He won a duel race Thursday night and will start fourth in Sunday's Daytona 500.

Three-time Atlanta victor, three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and 2012 NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee Darrell Waltrip will be officially inducted into the City of Hampton, Georgia's Speedway Lane Hall of Fame in a ceremony at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 22 at downtown Hampton's Depot Park, as the city, home to Atlanta Motor Speedway, honors the racing legend to kick off its 2018 NASCAR weekend.

"I learned a lot last season", he said during a phone interview. "It's all about the people, like any business". Truex and FRR had a shotgun marriage of sorts out of the wreckage of the Michael Waltrip Racing cheating scandal that crippled Waltrip's operation and forced Truex out of a job.

It wasn't all bad for Hendrick Motorsports, though, as Elliott won his qualifying race for the second consecutive year.

Seven time NASCAR Cup champion Jimmie Johnson earns a strong online sports betting review.

"It's always been a dream of mine", he said.

Martin Sr., who raised his family in Mayetta, N.J., raced on free weekends when he wasn't running Sea Watch International, the world's largest harvester and processor of clam products.

Let's go racin' and find out. Running him down, catching him, getting to two auto lengths - that's when I had my issue. The only good news is that we didn't get involved in any wrecks and kept our No. 78 Bass Pro Shops/5-hour Energy Toyota from sustaining any damage. How do you foresee NASCAR getting asses back in the seats and ratings up? I love the stage racing.

On to 2018. A brand new season, one that has to contain an Elliott win. I was catching him. I always wanted Dad to buy gas at the Dino place. "We're trying to figure out a time". However, this year the Duels lose a bit of their luster because of one big piece that is missing.

McReynolds: Even the 18 team of Bobby Labonte and Joe Gibbs Racing that had run second to us, they were even out there congratulating Dale. The small camera, developed by BSI, will be clipped to the helmets of Kurt Busch (last year's Daytona 500 champion) and Daniel Suarez. "We don't know if it's a boy or a girl".

"We still haven't set a date", Larson said.

"We just didn't really want to crash today".
