    words of comfort.At least we all sucked, Logano said.The four NASCAR Sprint Cup
    championship drivers all failed to get that one final boost they needed to
    better position themselves to win it all Sunday at Homestead-Miami
    Speedway.Logano, Carl Edwards, 2015 Sprint Cup champion Kyle Busch and Johnson
    all will start outside the top five. Busch will start ninth, Edwards 10th,
    Logano 13th and Johnson 14th. Johnson would match Dale Earnhardt Sr. and Richard
    Petty for the NASCAR record with his seventh career Cup championship.I dont
    think any of us want to start that far back, Edwards said.But they are bunched
    close enough that one TV camera can probably catch them all as they head into
    the first turn on the 1.5-mile track. Busch started third in the finale last
    season, won the race and his first career Cup title.The foursome likely wont lag
    behind the front of the field for long.This is a place you can pass, Logano
    said.The highest-finishing driver among the four is the 2016 champion. Under the
    revamped Chase format, the Homestead winner the last two years won the
    championship.Kevin Harvick and Brad Keselowski, eliminated from title contention
    in earlier rounds of NASCARs playoffs, played spoiler and swept the front row.I
    think weve been the two best cars all year, Keselowski said.Ryan Newman, Denny
    Hamlin, Chase Elliott, Martin Truex Jr., Matt Kenseth and Ryan Blaney all will
    start ahead of the championship drivers.The drivers out of the championship
    picture traditionally part to let the contenders race each other hard in the
    meat of the race.You get a little more respect from those guys, Busch said.Amid
    a heap of tributes, Tony Stewart starts 11th in the final race of his NASCAR
    career. Stewart is trying to race to his 50th career Cup victory and end a
    triumphant career in victory lane.There hasnt been any part of my career that I
    didnt enjoy, Stewart said. There are things about everything that Ive done that
    Ive liked more than others and disliked more than others. But as a whole, Ive
    enjoyed everything Ive done and the road that Ive taken to get here.Edwards and
    Busch are each vying to win a second straight championship for Joe Gibbs Racing.
    Johnson could bring a 12th title to Hendrick Motorsports. Logano wants to reward
    Roger Penskes 50th season in racing with another championship.Asked what keeps
    him going after all these years, Penske quipped, Trying to beat these
    guys.Harvick, the 2014 Homestead winner and Cup champion, won his second pole of
    the season. The Stewart-Haas Racing driver could also deliver a victory
    celebration for Stewart.Johnson was antsy to chase history.Qualifying isnt my
    strong suit, Im much better at racing, he said. So lets line them up and go
    racing. Under Armour Sale Uk .

    . Lack made 20 saves for his third shutout of the season as
    the Canucks blanked the St. Louis Blues 1-0 in the first post-Olympic game for
    both teams night. After just her second Bathurst 1000, Simona de Silvestro can
    already lay claim to beating six-time champion Craig Lowndes.No wonder the
    ex-Formula One test driver is confident she has finally silenced the knockers.De
    Silvestro is confident she can mix it with the best when she finally becomes a
    full-time Supercars driver next season after falling short of a top finish at
    Sundays Great Race.She and co-driver Renee Gracie stayed out of trouble at an
    incident packed Bathurst 1000 that included six safety cars as eight teams
    failed to even finish.When the dust settled, the all-female team placed 14th -
    two places higher than Lowndes, albeit after he suffered gear dramas
    early.Still, former IndyCar driver de Silvestro was taking all the positives she
    could before her much anticipated full-time debut in 2017.I think finishing 14th
    is quite amazing, she said.In these sorts of races when you stay out of trouble,
    the race comes to you a little bit.I was pretty happy with my first stint in the
    car because at the end of it we were starting to fight with the other guys out
    there.De Silvestro had hopedd to prove the doubters wrong after she speared off
    the track at qualifying on Friday, relegating them to the back of the grid for
    the 161-lap endurance classic.dddddddddddd think we can be pretty happy. Renee
    did an awesome job as well, as did the car and the team, De Silvestro said.I
    think we can be happy with this one, certainly better than the last one.De
    Silvestro returned to the mountain after teaming up with Gracie last year as a
    wildcard entry as the first all-female team to tackle Bathurst in almost 20
    years.In 2015 they were last - albeit after six teams failed to finish.Their
    entry was also overshadowed by then Ford driver David Reynolds now infamous
    Pussy Wagon description of them.De Silvestro can now look forward to a bright
    future - not only for herself but female drivers.Next year she will be the first
    female full-time touring car driver since Christine Gibson in 1975.And Supercars
