The 2021 NASCAR Cup Series playoffs got off to a rousing start last weekend at Darlington.
It was a festive day for Denny Hamlin,after holding off Kyle Larson in a thriller in the closing laps. With the win, Hamlin secured advancement to the Round of 12 of the playoffs, and as runner-up, Larson bolstered his big points lead over the remaining playoff drivers.
For several other playoff drivers, Darlington provided nothing but frustration and misery, as many suffered on-track incidents that put them in a hole. That list includes two-time champion Kyle Busch, who finished 35th out of 37 drivers, reigning series champion Chase Elliott, who finished 31st, Elliott’s Hendrick Motorsports teammate William Byron, who finished 34th, and Daytona 500 winner Michael McDowell, who finished last and was the first driver knocked out of the race after just 30 laps.
Johnson's 1st oval test clears way for laps at Indianapolis
Jimmie Johnson moved one step closer to adding the Indianapolis 500 to his IndyCar schedule with a successful test on his first oval. The track was familiar — Johnson has a record seven victories at Texas Motor Speedway — but the sensation of speed was totally different. The 45-year-old IndyCar rookie hit an average speed of 214 mph, a mark that would have qualified him fourth for the 2020 race at the 1.5-mile speedway. “It was quite significantThe track was familiar — Johnson has a record seven victories at Texas Motor Speedway — but the sensation of speed was totally different.

Tories try again to crack vote-rich Toronto-area ridings .
For the Conservatives to win this election, analysts say they'll have to make significant inroads in the Greater Toronto Area, a vote-rich ring of suburban communities surrounding Toronto that the party was largely shut out of in the last federal election. Oakville is one of a handful of ridings in the region where polling suggests a dead heat between the Liberals and Conservatives, and where the Tories could rise or fall on election night. © Mark Gollom/CBC Oakville is one of a handful of ridings in the Greater Toronto Area where polling suggests a dead heat between the Liberals and Conservatives.
