Both Races In NASCAR's Atlanta Doubleheader Wreck Within The First Two Laps

Both Races In NASCAR's Atlanta Doubleheader Wreck Within The First Two Laps

Both races started with a wreck in the first two laps at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Saturday.

Dillon's Xfinity team, on the other hand, fixed up his auto within NASCAR's new five-minute time limit and got the vehicle back on track.

With the Nascar season underway after last weekend's Daytona 500, a number of deals have been signed across the various tiers of the stock auto series.

Las Vegas' 1.5-mile track now hosts a spring NASCAR Cup event. Charlotte hosts three Cup events yearly, a points race in May and October and the non-points All-Star Race in May.

United States dollar climbs on Fed officials' comments
Since mid-2016, however, the US economy has shown more resilience, and risks from overseas have diminished, Yellen said. He said he was confident that the Fed could keep the economy on a "sound footing" even as the Fed raises rates.

Windows 10 will let you ban non-Store apps
There just weren't enough ARM-based software to complement the virtually non-existent apps on the Windows app store back then. Technically, there is no reason why it can't run traditional desktop apps, except for the fact that Microsoft says so.

Trump shirks responsibility for death of Navy SEAL in Yemen raid
The president concluded that it was "a very successful mission", which produced "tremendous amounts of information". The elder Owens, a military veteran himself, told the Miami Herald he has questions for the Trump administration.

Although the Daytona 500 just kicked off the season Sunday and the No. 48 Chevrolet driver is gunning for a third consecutive win - fifth overall - at the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at the Atlanta Motor Speedway on Sunday, he's not exactly resting this week.

"It took so long to get here to begin with", Busch said in Victory Lane. In the race, which had 20 laps for Stages 1 and 2 and 60 laps in the Final Stage, you could see drivers running more aggressively throughout the entire race in hopes of gaining regular season points at the end of each stage. This time it was 23-year-old Ryan Reed who took the checkered flag in the NXS Powershares QQQ 300.

NASCAR's television deal with Fox and NBC is for 36 points races and two non-points events a year, so any additional Cup event at Las Vegas most likely would come from a realignment request from a Speedway Motorsports Inc. track. He failed to win any of them. In his only Cup start at Atlanta last season Elliott finished eighth, had 16 of the fastest laps and spent over 90 percent of the race in the top 15.

The speedway would not comment, but sponsorship of a second race appears on an agenda for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.
