Hampton, gay. – Kevin Harwick has won the Nascar Cup race at the Atlanta Motor Speedway, another influential winner, Cask Bush, and Martin Trux Jr.
Competing again with the empty grandchildren, Harwick returns for the second time after being disconnected from Nascar by a Covarian epidemic and adding a sensitive win to Darlington’s first emotion.
Harvick landed 1,138 laps on the 1.51-mile Atlanta Trip that day, far more than any other driver in the 40th car industry.
This one was pretty much the same. Harvik now has three wins in Atlanta since his victories in 2001 and 2018.
“It’s one of my favorite songs,” Harbick said. “I like to win here.”
In the reverse winning circle, Harwick grabbed three fingers from his car, paying homage to the late Dale Ernhart.
After the seven-time champion died in an accident in Daytona in 2009, Harwick was the driver who replaced Ernhart. A few weeks later, Harwick won his first cup in Atlanta.
He now has 51 wins – breaking the tie with Ned Jarrett and Jr. Johnson in twelfth place on his career list.
“To mark how much was meant on Dale Ernhart’s trail where I achieved my first victory because he was not in the car. It was very special, ”Harwick said.
Seven-time Cup champion Jimmy Johnson, who could be his Atlanta finalist, paid tribute to his teammates by ordering “Start your engines”. In honor of Johnson Highway, it was also named Grand Prix, which will retire as a full-time competitor later this year.
Johnson, a five-time winner of the 1.54m sprint, got another strong hit in Atlanta. But his seventh place marks a victory that lasts more than 3 years.
The NASCAR competition returned to Atlanta, originally scheduled for March 15. This became the first race to be postponed due to the closure of most of the U.S. sports arenas to deal with the carnivirus epidemic.
This time, it was the place where Nasskar acknowledged the country’s social unrest and promised to fight racial injustice after the death of George Floyd.
Bubba Wallace, the only African-American in the top-level series, was presented with a black T-shirt with the words “I can’t breathe” and “The subject of black life.”
Wallace finished 21st and disappeared after getting out of the car. He said he was fine and had a few TV interviews, but could not speak at the time.
Wallace was taken by ambulance to an infield center where he was sitting while he was sitting in a room. His condition was not immediately known.
Forty cars were parked in front of empty granaries during the heaters and the engines were turned off, so NASCAR President Steve Phelps was able to give a message about their radio stations.
“Our country is in pain and people are justifiably angry and want to hear it,” Phelps said. “Everyone in our society has been a victim of black society and caste and it has taken a long time to hear their demands for change. We need to make sports better. Our country needs to do better. “
Four crews stood on the wall in front of their peat boxes. A member of the Wallace crew took off his T-shirt, which the driver removed before getting into the car.
Wallace is the most vocal voice since Floyd died during a Minneapolis police arrest.
The drivers observed a 30-second silence after talking to Phelps. Then, when the cars recovered the engines and slowly pulled for the green flag, Fox Wallace and Johnson aired a video shot by several drivers in the cup.
Several drivers posted a video on their Twitter account claiming that the protest had led the nation, “heard and learned”. He promised to “keep quiet” and “work together to bring about true change.”
NASCAR has a registered ethnic history as a result of its one-time intervention with its roots and Confederate symbols in the south. The company has launched various programs, but is still trying to restore its reputation as a mostly white game.
During the shutdown, NASCAR driver Kyle Larson was released after accidentally reporting a racial dream while competing for a video race in the game.
