Truex makes final championship push with top practice speed

Truex makes final championship push with top practice speed

Moments before completing the final race of his career on Sunday at the Homestead-Miami Speedway, in Homestead, Florida, Earnhardt said he felt "excited". Busch will start third, Keselowski fifth and Harvick ninth. Truex will race against Kyle Busch, Brad Keselowski and Kevin Harvick for the championship.

The best team - and, in this case, the best driver - doesn't always win the championship, but Sunday night at the NASCAR Cup Series finale, the rightful driver is going home happy. His longtime girlfriend, Sherry Pollex, had a recurrence of cancer.

"He was voted most likely to be a mannequin in a gift shop", Fallon says of Truex.

Truex won't have team owner Barney Visser in attendance because Visser is recovering in Colorado from a heart attack and surgery.

"I'm Team Martin this weekend, for sure", Earnhardt said. They all had varying levels of talent an success in NASCAR.

Pearn and the Furniture Row Racing team are trying to get luck on their side.

Bell led the Truck Series in wins (seven), top five-finishes (14) and laps led (865).

Running together most of the race, the race result wasn't settled until the checkered flag dropped over Truex, who not only won the championship but the race itself.

Martin Truex Jr. will have his race team owner cheering him on from afar. Also, I'll remember this as one of the dominant non-title seasons, which are more common than you'd think. Not clearing the No. 18 car, Sadler drifted up the track and into the outside wall, cutting down a tire allowing Byron to cruise to the championship.

Sharing the spotlight with the four title contenders was Dale Earnhardt Jr., who was closing out his full-time Cup career.

When the NBC reporter said it still had been a successful season, Busch smirked like the gymnast McKayla Maroney when she received a silver medal instead of gold at the Olympics. "To think about all the rough days and bad days, the days that I couldn't run 20th; to be here, I never thought this day would come and to be here is so unbelievable". I found a lane I could use and one that blocked the air they could use; I just found a way. "So it is what it is".

Truex and the Furniture Row Racing team have the most wins this season, the most stage wins, led the most laps.the list goes on and on.

Truex declined that offer, the car being a therapeutic place for him, even when it ran like a ton of bricks.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. says he would consider returning to Homestead-Miami Speedway next season to drive in the Xfinity Series finale. He said he had the best car and came up short. "I confided in my friends and family and my wife that I was worried that I could get another concussion and how disappointing that would be". "Never give up. Dig deep".

Pollex reminded Truex of how far they've come when she embraced him. Everybody is battling something, everybody is fighting something in their life, not just cancer, but any kind of struggle that they're going through in their life.

"My wife's pregnant with a little girl, we're going to have in May", Earnhardt told ABC News, adding that he is still processing all the emotions he feels.
