"So, no, you get exhausted of getting run over like that". Elliott went spinning across the track and made hard contact into the pit wall, ending his race with under 30 laps to go.

So here's the question: does he have a face mask with a Hamlin frown printed on it if he lost? You can move around.

"Well, you can look at it a couple different ways", Hamlin said on a Thursday morning Zoom call with reporters. We're talking about this more, right, because he's popular, and obviously they were up toward the front. Hamlin has won three times at Darlington and has two wins this season. It was his 39th career win and third at Darlington in 16 attempts. Kyle Busch had an ongoing issue with Brad Keselowski for several years, while Matt Kenseth and Denny Hamlin both tangled with Joey Logano.

Elliott was understandably frustrated, and showed his disapproval the next time Busch came around the track. So upset, in fact, that Elliott exited his vehicle and waited for Busch to drive back by him so he could give him a one finger salute. He spoke with Elliott's crew chief, Alan Gustafson, who was waiting for him on pit road afterward.

"Obviously I just made a mistake, misjudged the gap, sent him into the wall", Busch admitted. I race him tough, just the same as I did before I crashed him at Martinsville. The rest of the field will start the Toyota 500 in the same order they finished in Sunday's race. "They're mad. I'm not just going to fix it and we're going to have ice cream tomorrow".

May 19 Plumas COVID testing update
Statewide, officials reported 53,009 total confirmed cases of COVID-19 and a death toll of 5,060 Wednesday, May 20. A patient is considered to have recovered 21 days after a confirmed case report is provided to the county.

NASCAR returned to action Sunday at Darlington after a 10 weeks off by using a a strict health protocol and limiting those in attendance to only the most essential for conducting a race.

A second day of heavy rain and thunderstorms has delayed the start of Wednesday night's Toyota 500k, which is slated to be just the second live NASCAR event to take place since the sport was put on hiatus in mid-March by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The start of NASCAR's second race back during the coronavirus pandemic was moved up an hour because of poor weather, but that was then delayed almost 90 minutes because it rained most of the day. That future includes midweek Cup Series races with the potential to generate national attention, on a track that generates competitive racing, racing a distance that doesn't feel overly long and in a straightforward manner that doesn't overextend teams. The next Cup Series event is the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Bowyer went on to win Stage 2, as well.

Should NASCAR not be able to complete the Cup race, it would try again Thursday night in a doubleheader. However, rain that fell in the afternoon forced a two-hour delay of the start.
