"He was devastated", Elliott recalled with a laugh. They all want to come in and compete at a very high level as fast as they can, which makes the challenge even harder. Kenseth is in his last season with the team - and oddly, there has still been still no announcement regarding his 2018 destination - but he has eight top-10 finishes in his past 11 races, so his No. 20 auto has the needed consistency. "It was nobody's fault but my own, and I take full responsibility for it".

The 2017 NASCAR Monster Energy Series waves the green flag on the Bank of America 500 later today. His average finish there is 12.7 and his driver rating is 110.4. "This is an important round". The move not only denied Elliott his first Cup Series victory, it cemented the Toyota brand on top of the NASCAR charts.

"Have to get another vehicle out and see how that works out".

George Agbey, who was close to the scene of the explosion, said: "There was some panic and we all just moved away from the scene". Ambulances had been deployed, and those people who sustained various degrees of injury have been sent to hospitals, he said.

"I'm avoiding it until somebody can go up there and shows me there is a lap up there", said Earnhardt.

It caused him to hit the wall and his Hendrick Motorsports team had to pull out his backup auto. "But he's learning how to deal with it and go on". I think it allows him, Kyle Busch, and Kyle Larson to be extra aggressive when fighting for a win as they can afford a DNF with such a big buffer in points.

Bowman will replace Earnhardt next year in the No. 88 Chevrolet in the Cup series. He said it was the result of driving through the adhesive compound put down on the track by race officials to create more groove options and better competition. "Hopefully, it puts some of the people who are talking to rest because we are going into 2018 to win a lot of races in that 88 vehicle". "I became more calm", Larson said. But he's pretty mature.

Sam Hornish Jr. finished second, Ryan Blaney third, Austin Dillon was fourth and Brennan Poole completed the top-five. "But he'll win, and when he wins one, he's going to win a lot". Last race: Max Verstappan took first in Malaysia. Last year: Nico Rosberg won from the pole, his last victory in a championship season. The number change is part of a restructuring of the Hendrick lineup and puts Elliott in the No. 9, a auto number associated with his father.

"Track position is obviously important - track position, restarts, pit stops, strategy, all that stuff", Kenseth said. "I'd love to add my name to that win column".
