5 Storylines to Watch Entering NASCAR's 2018 Season

Ryan Truex, your ride's here ... finally

Truex, who calls Atlanta one of his five favorite tracks, has been a contender the past three years in the Folds of Honor/QuikTrip 500 with top-10 finishes of sixth, seventh and eighth. In one shot, Rodgers poses with her family. And then... Lady Luck intervened. That was important. Not the fastest vehicle, it was definitely lethargic getting up to speed on the starts and when we checked up, but other than that it ran really well.

"We just had a run and I stayed on the gas". The first half of the race played host to aggressive maneuvers with 15 lead changes and 11 leaders.

Even this week at Daytona 500 Media Day, when asked what she would do next year, she replied, "Next year will just hopefully be my brand is built up".

Vehicle racing has found its way into the accomplished movie star's filmography as well, as in the case of last year's The Fate Of The Furious. She never got the major wins that she was looking for or have any real sustained level of success. "This place just creates history and I'm proud to be a part of it and make some history here". "But one of the boys smacked me on the butt this morning".

ARCA racer Lelani Munter also honored Danica for her efforts in furthering women in racing.

United States of America see off Canada in shootout to capture Olympic women's hockey gold
Dani Cameranesi scored twice for the U.S. against Finland , with Gigi Marvin, Lamoureux-Davidson and Knight also finding the net. Canada has won every gold medal since then, and Thursday's match was the third time the teams had met in an Olympic final.

It's a tough ending to what was a great Speedweeks for Team Penske's newest driver. He had the race in control until a caution set up a restart, and Blaney made the wrong moves in trying to wrap up the win.

In the last lap mayhem, Ryan Reed took third and Taz Grala fourth with Garrett Smithley fifth.

Again, we look forward to seeing Danica back behind the wheel at the Indy 500, as well as the exciting future that awaits her after racing.

"The auto was a lot better than it was in the Duel", Patrick said. "But it was. I said earlier today that I feel like the whole thing was picture flawless with GoDaddy on the vehicle and it being that green again", Patrick said on the live Fox broadcast. Two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback Peyton Manning served as the honorary pace vehicle driver and recently elected National Baseball Hall of Famer Chipper Jones served as the honorary race official. "You're disappointed because you dominated a good race, but it's the way it goes sometimes".
