Larson wins Charlotte as Elliott and Harvick continue feud

  Larson wins Charlotte as Elliott and Harvick continue feud CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Kyle Larson rallied from early electrical issues Sunday to win for the seventh time this season and storm into the third round of NASCAR's playoffs. Larson's victory on The Roval at Charlotte Motor Speedway ended a topsy-turvy day for Hendrick Motorsports. Larson and reigning Cup champion Chase Elliott moved into the round of eight, but Alex Bowman and William Byron were eliminated and Elliott was nearly sabotaged by a vengeful Kevin Harvick. Harvick laid in wait to deliver his payback on Elliott for Elliott costing him a win at Bristol three weeks ago.

As reported earlier today, the 26-year-old will join MSR on a multi-year deal as part of an all-new line-up for the Queensland team.

In doing so, Hazelwood will be reunited with the team that took him to the Super2 title in 2017, before team and driver stepped up to the main game together the following season.

Hazelwood then split with MSR to join Brad Jones Racing ahead of the 2020 season.

“It’s great to have Todd reuniting with the team and moving towards the next stage of his career and our involvement in Supercars," said team boss Matt Stone.

“We’ve had some very good results with Todd in the past in both Super2 and as a rookie in our first couple of years in the main game when we were a one car team.

  Katie Couric on Being 'Shocked' by Matt Lauer's Behavior: 'It Just Seemed So Callous' Katie Couric reflects on the sexual harassment allegations against her former Today co-host Matt Lauer in this week's issue of PEOPLE"What upset me the most about hearing these stories [was] that obviously [his behavior] was grossly inappropriate, but also it just seemed so callous," Couric, 64, tells PEOPLE.

"Both Todd and our team have grown a lot in the past two years, so we are expecting some strong results from both of our drivers and from our team as a whole next year.

“It’s been great to lock away a multi-year deal with Todd. Our drivers are obviously an important piece of the puzzle that we need in place to produce the results that we want to deliver.

"I have every confidence that our line up next year will once again see MSR take a step forward towards our goal of being race winners at the highest level in Australian motorsport.”

Hazelwood said: “I'm super excited to be returning with the team at Matt Stone Racing for the next few seasons in the Supercars Championship.

“The whole team has had significant growth during the last 24 months, and I can already sense the excitement and energy with the plans put in place behind the scenes.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — NASCAR, the longtime king of U.S. motorsports, has never had to worry about Formula One, the popular globetrotting series that has never quite grabbed hold of Americans. Then came “Drive to Survive” on Netflix, an F1 docuseries that for three seasons has given viewers a behind-the-velvet-rope look at the international superstars in Formula One, their glamorous lives, the cutthroat competition and the alleged cattiness of Red Bull boss Christian Horner.
