Elliott Pulls Out A Victory In Dover Cup Race

Elliott Pulls Out A Victory In Dover Cup Race

At Dover International Speedway, Dover, Del.

The top eight drivers after the next two races move on to the next round and Almirola, Bowyer, Kyle Larson and Alex Bowman are the bottom four after the first playoff race in the round of 12.

Chase Elliott won the Gander Outdoors 400 from Dover International Speedway on Sunday afternoon to lock himself into the next round of the Playoffs. Practice was delayed and eventually cancelled due to weather.

Elliott was the surprise victor in a race that had been dominated by Stewart-Haas Racing drivers until a pair of wrecks over the final laps jumbled the field and set the stage for Elliott.

OF NOTE Rain washed out qualifying Friday, setting the lineup on points and giving the top dozen spots to the 12 playoff drivers. Almirola rolled home in 13th place and fell into a tie for ninth in the standings with Bowyer.

Almirola had lost the lead when Bowyer wrecked.

"I don't really care about points, I want to win", he said. "I don't know. I'm frustrated and mad and angry".

Joey Logano finished third, followed by Erik Jones and Kurt Busch. "I ran as hard as I could...and just couldn't get beside him there".

Late race problems also robbed two of his playoff entrant teammates of shots at the victory.

China stocks tumble despite central bank's move to support economy
The 30-year Treasury bond reached a four-year high of 3.424 percent, and was at 3.4054 percent at the US close on Friday. Real estate, consumer and healthcare sectors were also among the biggest casualties, all tanking more than 4 per cent.

Nobel Laureate Says Carbon Tax Will Help Us In The Long Run
Many economists have since endorsed the concept of taxing carbon and using this financial lever to influence societal behavior. Thaler for his pioneering work in establishing that human behaviour is irrational and in defiance of economic theory.

"I hate that for everybody that was involved, but it kind of killed our day, too. The way the rulebook looks today, I think the teams and the drivers understand what it looks like, and I think we'll clarify for '19 with more specific language in it".

If something unusual happens to Kevin Harvick, it's more likely to happen at Dover International Speedway than anywhere else. Two laps later, the Dover spring victor was forced to return after his left rear tire went flat when a lug nut broke a valve stem.

Chase Elliott had been burdened by lofty expectations that come as the son of a Hall of Fame driver and the replacement of a four-time NASCAR champion.

The Team Penske driver got the last laugh at Charlotte.

"We were just lucky there and wound up dodging and weaving and being in the right place, so maybe that makes up for the bad luck on losing the race with an absolute dominant auto", Harvick said.

The win was a satisfying turnaround from the same race a year ago, when Elliott had victory in his sights, only to be tracked down and passed by Kyle Busch on the next-to-last lap. But that was little consolation after Sunday's disappointment. As I've said to a bunch of people, it was probably the toughest day of my career.

After last week's close call at the Charlotte Motor Speedway road course, Jimmie Johnson was a logical choice to contend for a victory at Dover International Speedway, where he has accumulated 11 of his 83 career victories. - #17, Roush Fenway Racing, Ford - [21st (+2)] 20th - Paul Menard - #21, Wood Brothers Racing, Ford - [20th (0)] 21st - Jamie McMurray - #1, Chip Ganassi Racing, Chevrolet - [18th (-3)] 22nd - William Byron - #24, Hendrick Motorsports, Chevrolet - [23rd (+1)] 23rd - A.J. Allmendinger - #47, JTG Daugherty Racing, Chevrolet - [22nd (-1)] 24th - Chris Buescher - #37, JTG Daugherty Racing, Chevrolet - [24th (0)] 25th - David Ragan - #38, Front Row Motorsports, Ford - [25th (0)] 26th - Michael McDowell - #34, Front Row Motorsports, Ford - [26th (0)] 27th - Kasey Kahne - #95, Leavine Family Racing, Chevrolet - [27th (0)] 28th - Darrell Wallace Jr.

RACE DISTANCE 400 miles, 400 laps.

Johnson gave away the race before it really started.
