Who will win Can-Am Duel 1? 2/15/18 — NASCAR Predictions

Who will win Can-Am Duel 1? 2/15/18 — NASCAR Predictions

"And the 500's a great showcase, as well as being the biggest race of the year".

IL native Danica Patrick, making her final appearance in NASCAR, succeeded in staying out of trouble on Thursday night.

Joey Logano finished second to teammate Ryan Blaney in the first Gatorade Duel in Daytona to give Team Penske a 1-2 sweep. Alex Bowman, the driver taking over the vehicle of retired Dale Earnhardt Jr., won the pole.

Eventually Johnson will retire and that era of NASCAR's history will end.

Seeing the pain his father went through many years ago when he underwent bypass surgery, Visser said that was the source of his concern.

Daytona presents an interesting challenge for announcers like Joy, as it's a race watched by many new fans and many who don't follow NASCAR year-round, but there's also a substantial audience of hardcore fans. He has a now-signature pause, a look into whatever is beyond the throngs of the exultant pit crew, familiar well-wishers, NASCAR hangers-on, scantily-clad Monster Energy drink girls, and whoever else populates the little circle that is drenched in beer, champagne, sticky energy drink, and rainbow-colored confetti. This sport, family-owned has given the impression for so long it rules with an iron fist. That does not mean they can not be enjoyable races, though.

"I wasn't very comfortable to pull on the wheel like I needed to, to be aggressive in making moves and blocking, all the things I needed", Harvick said after his qualifying race.

Perhaps it was that these three outcasts found a home in one another-Truex from the Jersey Shore, Pearn from Canada, and Furniture Row Racing from Denver.

Joey Logano finished second to Penske teammate Blaney for the Ford sweep in the first race. The last of those 2017 wins came way back on June 4 at Dover, the 13th race of the season.

Chevrolet and Toyota have showed more topline speed overall during the week. He's been in Junior Motorsports in their cars coming up through the ranks.

Fixing them will actually make a real difference.

In his new seat at the Wood Brother's Racing Team, Paul Menard was one of several fast Fords in his Duel race on Thursday.

Even a brilliant Salomon Rondon volley, with Southampton two up, could not provide the platform for a Baggies comeback. In the 56th minute, Dusan Tadic made it 2-0 from a counter on 55 minutes, chipping the on-rushing Foster.

Johnson has started off well in Cup races at The Glen, boasting a career race start average there of 7.6.

At its core, racin' is about drama.

It's nearly time to run the Great American Race.

GEICO signed a multi-year extension Friday through 2020 to serve as primary sponsor of the No. 13 Chevrolet and Germain Racing. He should post a top 10 result on Sunday.

As always the season-opening Daytona 500 will be a festive day. "It's a good start for our Daytona 500".

But the drivers today - a more buttoned-down, geographically diverse class, to be sure - also have reason to wonder about the relative health of their septuagenarian sport. He had to sit out all of past year as he waited, but Hendrick made it up to him with an engine that has him on the Daytona 500 pole.

Team Penske has shown off their drafting skills over the course of Speedweeks. And Joey Logano, the 2015 Daytona 500 victor is no slouch. Finishing 12 is not what we wanted or expected.

McReynolds: Even the 18 team of Bobby Labonte and Joe Gibbs Racing that had run second to us, they were out there congratulating Dale.

"I feel like the last three seasons, we improved in every category every year", Truex said.

That would explain why Trevor Bayne and Jamie McMurray have won the Daytona 500, and Michael Waltrip and Sterling Marlin each have won it twice, while Kyle Busch still is seeking to break through. He starts 11th this Sunday but is driving Ford equipment that has held up well in the draft. Excited to start the season - absolutely. The red carpet has been rolled out for her, experienced Hendrick Motorsports support behind the scenes ensuring she'll have a solid 500 effort. The one-race deal means they won't go the extra mile to keep running. So Bowman dropped to the back of the pack and just made laps, a move that was criticized by veteran Harvick, a series champion and former Daytona 500 victor. And this year's changes led to some tricky handling issues for some teams during Saturday's Clash races. Hopefully, we can make it, you know, another one here on Sunday. But Joy particularly stands out because he's been at Daytona for so many years, previously doing play-by-play and pit reporting for CBS as well as calling the race for radio.

Each February, diehard and casual stock auto fans alike flock to Daytona Beach, Florida for the annual Speedweeks, which culminates on Sunday with "The Great American Race" - the Daytona 500. Keselowski is the Las Vegas betting favorite to win the race, but Blaney absolutely should be in the mix.

Keselowski has a knack for succeeding at the super speedways.
