In addition, the Son of NASCAR legend- Awesome Bill Elliott, Chase broke the leaderboard in Saturday's Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series final practice at Atlanta Motor Speedway at 188.015 miles per hour in the No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet. Erik Jones started 23 and moved his No. 77 SiriusXM Toyota Camry into the top 15 by lap 76, running for a good stretch of time in the top 10 before settling for a solid 14-place finish.

Elliott might've been the one in position to seize the Atlanta win if not for a slow pit stop that cost him several positions near the end.

Elliott's teammates have continued to support their 21-year-old, all saying he's destined to win a lot of races.

The resurfacing of the track in the Atlanta suburbs - which was last repaved in 1997 - was announced in January.

"I just made a mistake that I preach all the time that you don't need to make and beat yourself and then you go out and make it yourself instead of following all the things you preach".

Austin Cindric's spin on Lap 124 of 130 brought out the eighth and final caution of the race and set up the final two-lap dash.

"You have to have great talent and certainly when you look at (Rodney) Childers (Harvick's crew chief) and look at the other guys like Tony Gibson (Busch's crew chief), they're all excellent", he said. "I don't think that I'll win that battle".

Larson said Keselowski's ability to run on the high line made life hard for him throughout the race.

"We just sped on pit road there some - all our lights were right, so I don't know", Kenseth said. Heavily target guys that come from a dirt track racing background. "But I have a pretty good reasoning, and I think why it was, but I really don't want everybody else to know".

Martin Castillo, a street vendor in the capital's historic downtown, said: "Here we're used to seeing the dead every day". Henriquez said that injuries on the hippo's feet likely occurred when the animal attempted to defend himself.

Chase Elliott spent much of Sunday's Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 running in Kevin Harvick's shadow.

With a helping hand from lapped cars, pole-winner Busch was able to hold off Brad Keselowski by 0.606 seconds.

"Our auto was really good", Elliott said. I'm proud of my guys for the speed they put in this race auto.

"I expect it to drive good". Something for me to try to improve on coming back.

Rounding out the top-10 on Sunday was Joey Logano, Kurt Busch, Martin Truex Jr. "We have not finalized any schedules for 2018 or beyond but will announce them as they become final". Kevin Harvick and Jamie McMurray.

It's the Folds of Honor Quiktrip 500.

Keselowski chased Busch through lapped traffic for most of the last 10 laps of the race but couldn't quite bridge the gap, finishing second to improve on the seventh-place finish he had in 2016. Keselowski's win catapults him to third, just six points back from the lead.

The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series will head to the West Coast for the Kobalt 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday, March 12.
