Hamlin Victorious as Truex Claims Regular Season Championship

"Mentally, I was prepared for it to go either way". If you had a driver who retired a decade ago, and suddenly you see a auto that "looks" like theirs, you'd at least be curious to see how it's painted up, right?

FORMULA ONE: Lewis Hamilton won the Italian Grand Prix in Monza, virtually unchallenged from the pole as he took a 238-235 lead over Sebastian Vettel in the drivers' standings.

"Seems like we've been second a lot this year", The said. This energy is like nowhere else we get to see, apart from maybe Silverstone. "So it's much different, although the last race here was kind of like the old days".

Kyle Busch will start third. Kaitlyn Dowell also from NY came for the second year.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. finished 22nd - the same as how he started - in his final time racing at Darlington. Earnhardt Jr.is winless this season and would need an extraordinary late run this week and next to advance to playoffs.

Truex didn't have the dominant auto in the first two stages, but he won both, despite leading just 34 of the first 200 laps.

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

Two years on from 'dieselgate', Volkswagen launches diesel scrappage scheme
Trade in a vehicle which is older than seven years old for a new Kia Picanto or Rio and you can enjoy a £2,000 discount. The only criteria is that the new vehicle must be bought in the same name that the old auto was registered to.

Unfortunately for Truex, Denny Hamlin spoiled the party.

Clint Bowyer had hoped the spirit of Mark Martin would help him - Bowyer's vehicle carried a paint scheme in tribute to Martin - but instead he was out of the race 18 laps in with a broken valve. Last race: Kyle Busch won for the 40th time in the series - and for the sixth time at Bristol. Would he have enough time to catch up and retake the lead? But Hamlin slowly reeled him in and passed him when Truex brushed the wall and got a flat tire. Martin won 40 Cup races but never won the title. Hamlin has had a good year at the tracks he's traditionally done well at this year, so look for that to continue tonight. Kasey Kahne (1, 5), Austin Dillon (1, 5), Chase Elliott (94 points ahead of Clint Bowyer on the cutoff line, 2 playoff points), Matt Kenseth (+92, 3), Jamie McMurray (+91, 0). William Byron, who'll join them in the big series next year, was the first Xfinity regular finishing fifth. If you have a spot where you need two or three inches to clear a guy, it's kind of a gentleman's agreement on a restart that most people give you that two or three inches or six inches, but if it's more than that you're going to stick it in there and you're going to stay on the gas and hopefully not wreck. From then, all Hamlin had to do was last another two laps. "It wound up being a great race and that's all you can ask for".

Kyle Larson, who led 124 laps in the first 200 of the race, had to make two stops during the yellow as the result of a tire rub.

Truex led 76 laps in the race before he hit the wall.

"You say, 'All right, I've got this thing as long as there isn't another caution, ' and, of course, there was", Logano said.
