    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

    No.Peter Snakebite Wright is top of the Premier League after the third week
    provided thrills and spills in Dublin. Michael van Gerwen, Raymond van Barneveld
    and Phil Taylor also registered victories but there was not good news for
    everyone in the Premier League.Here are five talking points after the Irish
    arrows. PL night three Check out all the details from Dublin Can Wright maintain
    his lead?Streaking away at the front of the Premier League pack can be
    notoriously treacherous. This year, Snakebite is the only player to possess a
    100 per cent record after three games, leading to the inevitable question of
    whether he can be pegged back. Peter Wright brought the house down in Dublin
    after checking out on 161 Wright would be wise to remember that there are no
    prizes for topping the league table heading into The O2 Arena play-offs in May.
    You have to go back three years to remember when Michael van Gerwen won the
    league phase then lifted the overall prize.Wrights early season form is a key
    indicator that he can mix it with the big boys on a consistent basis, making him
    a legitimate threat to become Premier League champion, but there is no pressure
    on him to maintain his No 1 spot heading into Judgement Night.MVG-Lewis duel
    heats upVan Gerwen and Adrian Lewis are young enough to suggest that they could
    share the next truly great oche rivalry. When many of the current Premier League
    cast have hung up their arrows, Van Gerwen and Lewis will still be slinging
    darts as 30-somethings. Michael van Gerwen powered past Adrian Lewis In Dublin,
    they stole the show with the nights most entertaining clash, which will probably
    be remembered as a mere footnote in their eventual history. Van Gerwen prevailed
    7-4 after rampaging into a two-leg lead with a 125 average. Another lung-busting
    run handed the Dutchman a four-leg streak which powered him over the finishing
    line, and to the No 4 spot in the league table. You get the sense that Van
    Gerwen and Lewis will share many more great Premier League matches. Why isnt the
    Scotsman flying?After three weeks, reigning champion Gary Anderson sits
    second-bottom in the Premier League having suffered a humbling defence of his
    crown so far.dddddddddddd. The Flying Scotsman has been grounded by illness then
    a pair of defeats and finds himself with an uphill task to battle back into
    play-off contention. Gary Anderson (right) lost his second PL match of the
    season to Phil Taylor Sky Sports expert Wayne Mardle is in no doubt that
    Anderson will eventually come good, saying: Im not concerned about Gary, he is
    too good. He is going to make the play-offs, there are not four players in this
    tournament better than him.Anderson has fallen foul of world No 1 Van Gerwen and
    Taylor so the context of his back-to-back defeats hardly constitutes a crisis.
    But time is ticking, and Anderson will need some points on the board sharpish.
    Wayne Mardles view Gary Anderson will make the play-offs Smith is made of stern
    stuffThey dont call Michael Smith the Bully Boy for nothing. The Premier League
    debutant had endured a nightmare campaign until Thursday night in Dublin, losing
    his first three fixtures at the tournament. And the trouble with the Premier
    League is that a dangerous opponent lurks around the corner in every city.
    Michael Smith is off the mark with his first point Smith arrived in Ireland
    opposed by perennial contender Dave Chisnall but put up a valiant struggle to
    earn a draw, posting his first point of the season. Chizzy had led 2-0 and it
    spelled trouble for Smith but he gritted his teeth and mounted a comeback, even
    leading 6-5 before being forced to share the spoils. Finally hes over the first
    big hurdle and the next arrow he throws will hopefully be his most relaxed so
    far.Barney rolls onVan Barneveld can often be relied upon to throw his finest
    arrows against top opposition but the chink in his armour can be a vulnerability
    when it comes to maintaining consistency. He faced Robert Thornton in Dublin, an
    opponent he was overwhelmingly favoured to defeat, and he duly won 7-5. Raymond
    van Barneveld would have welcomed a rare no-frills win No fuss, no frills. It is
    the sort of win that too often eludes Van Barneveld, who usually cant help but
    get drawn into back-and-forth thrillers which are difficult to replicate on a
    weekly basis. The veteran Dutchman has quietly slipped up to No 3 in the Premier
    League table, leaving Thornton winless.Watch Premier League Darts on Thursday
