Hendrick's Byron wins Daytona 500 pole

"So this year to have them right on top of each other just means that the organization did a heck of a job, engine shop, body shop, teams working together".

Knaus made a statement in 2002 when he and Johnson debuted at Daytona and won the pole in their first race together.

It was the fifth consecutive year a Hendrick vehicle has won the pole for the Daytona 500 and it was the 700th pole for Chevrolet, the only partner Hendrick has had in racing.

"It's been a pretty awesome day", said team owner Rick Hendrick, whose organization fielded the four fastest cars in Daytona 500 qualifying.

Following the race, Johnson claimed that he saw that it was raining and wanted to take advantage of what he believed was his opportunity to take the race lead and earn the victory, which is what ended up happening. "He got in July here past year and that's unfortunate that he just did it again".

Soon after the conclusion of the 2018 season, the race team announced plans to enter its No. 97 in all Cup Series races in 2019 with Berryhill as driver. Sunday's performances answered that question. "Extremely excited to win". We can kind of hang out during the Duel races, learn a little bit.

Steelers WR Antonio Brown no-show for court date on reckless driving

"We still need a points race win to say we've been back to victory lane". "But it was a great first step today".

This year's Clash boasted a 20-driver field, with the previous season's pole winners joined by past Clash winners, past Daytona 500 winners and polesitters, and the playoff drivers from the previous season. Knaus reciprocated, going to victory lane to congratulate his former driver.

To start the day off, NASCAR had Daytona 500 qualifying to see who would start on the front row.

Johnson acknowledged he caused the contact, and said after the race he felt bad for the cars that crashed, but also said he was justified.

"We could see it coming and I knew that was probably my lap to make the move and I had a great run down the back".

"We would not be sitting at this table and making this announcement had we not been a NASCAR property", Drager said.

Jody Wilson-Raybould resigns from Trudeau's cabinet
The company argues that a conviction would put the future of the company and the livelihoods of its workers in jeopardy. It is notable that she chose to sign with that name, which she didn't do in her farewell letter as justice minister.

"We want to take care of the cars for sure", Hendrick said.

Knaus' and Byron's pole didn't come with the controversy that accompanied Johnson's victory.

He was the leader when a crash with 10 laps remaining brought out a caution and set up two final restarts, one in overtime. When rain once again began pouring, NASCAR elected to declare the race official. I'm very remorseful. I'm probably more remorseful than any driver in the field when stuff like this happens.

The last pole sitter to win the race was Dale Jarrett in 2000. "Jimmie does that a lot at these tracks, so that's unfortunate". Johnson didn't deny it.

"As we talk about money and saving team owners money, Joe Gibbs wrecked five cars", said Harvick, who crashed in Clash practice and then again at the end of the race. "That's what we do". That's how you pass, when you break the bumper cover, the plane of the bumper cover of the vehicle you're going to pass or go by.
