Johnson claims 11th checkered flag at the "Monster Mile"

Galena Nuncio | 05 Junio, 2017, 17:36

Johnson was glued to the TV as he sat on an old couch at home in El Cajon, Calif.

The same number in the record book as that California kid who grew up to become even better than his idol.

After winning the pole for Sunday's AAA 400 Drive for Autism at Dover International Speedway (1 p.m. ET on FS1), Busch explained his surly reaction to finishing second in the Coca-Cola 600.

"I was a big Cale Yarborough fan", Johnson said. Johnson had reached the overtime line before the caution flew, so he was shown the checkered flag his next time around the track to claim his 11th victory at the Monster Mile. Johnson clawed his way toward the front, then used an overtime restart to pass race leader Kyle Larson on the inside with two laps to go for the victory. Whoever it seemed like got out front was the best, but all in all, you know, it was a good day.

Johnson, the seven-time NASCAR champion, has racked up a Hall of Fame resume all with team owner Rick Hendrick and crew chief Chad Knaus.

"We come to the race track and we unload, and there is obviously going to be some comments about the auto that we want to fix", Earnhardt said.

Estoy muy feliz y agradecido. "Hay que felicitar a todos los jugadores ". Lo importante es disfrutar lo que tenemos este año", indicó.

"That's through relationships, those people that are close to me understand me, know me and know who I am outside the race track as a personable person, as a friend", he said. "I just think that the challenges this track throws at a team just fits us really well". So, it opened my eyes to the world of sponsorship at that point in time, but I was such a fan and it's been an incredible journey along the way. Johnson may have had a sense history was ahead in the No. 48 Chevrolet.

In winning for the third time in six starts this season, Larson led 137 of the 200 laps to Blaney's 28. "Then something in my mind just said that this was not over".

His says loud and clear he has a deep respect for NASCAR's greats.

Kyle Larson earned respect around the garage for his refusal a year ago to bump the race leader down the stretch for a win in the NASCAR Cup race at Dover. In addition, the race offered another common result during the 2017 season: Kyle Larson finished second.

Larson said this was the best auto he has ever had at Dover. "He was about three rows ahead of us, and I couldn't run him down by the time I got to second". With more wins like this one, Johnson just might pass Dale Earnhardt and Richard Petty and get No. 8. He now trails only Bobby Allison and Darrell Waltrip by one on the career wins leaderboard.

DETROIT | Graham Rahal won the first of two Detroit Grand Prix races, easily holding off Scott Dixon on Saturday. Starting 14th, Johnson has a little bit of a safer floor than some other potential dominators, and he is always a threat to go out and lead a ton of laps here.

Rahal won the pole earlier in the day with his Honda-powered vehicle and became the seventh IndyCar driver to win the first seven races of the year.

A red flag stopped the race for 18 minutes after 67 laps because Spencer Pigot's vehicle had a mechanical failure. We had to come through the field, which was hard and that says a lot about our Furniture Row/Denver Mattress Toyota and our team. Two laps later, he secured an overtime victory.

The daughter of Funny Car star John Force, she beat Antron Brown in the final with a 3.716-second pass at 328.62 miles per hour.

"Obviously I didn't need that last caution", Larson told NASCAR.com. "The key to it all is our team sticking together and not giving up, and it definitely paid dividends today".

"We won't let hate win", Grande wrote in a statement when she announced the benefit concert last week. "We must not be afraid". British singer Marcus Mumford held a moment of silence before performing at the Manchester benefit concert Sunday.

Robert Hight topped the Funny Car field, and Tanner Gray was the fastest in Pro Stock. In Friday's Truck Series race, Brad Keselowski Racing suffered a similar incident when Chase Briscoe pulled away and the tire came off his truck.
