Joey Logano

Defending series champion Joey Logano topped the speed chart during the first on-track action of the 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season, but it was a rough start for Chase Elliott, Denny Hamlin, Kevin Harvick and Ryan Newman.

With roughly 45 minutes remaining in what served as the only practice for Sunday’s Advance Auto Parts Clash at Daytona (3 p.m. ET, FS1, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio), Elliott’s No. 9 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro drifted up into Ryan Newman’s No. 6 Roush Fenway Racing Ford Mustang, triggering a four-car scramble. Elliott was able to drive his car back to the garage, but the team has elected to go to a backup for tomorrow’s race.

Honda looks to bury McLaren with Red Bull
Honda have made it clear that they want F1’s rulemakers to bring in further regulations on the engine rules, to prevent other engine suppliers taking advantage of grey areas.

Honda returned to the sport in 2015, supplying McLaren, and immediately struggled with an underpowered engine, and were ditched by McLaren after three seasons.

Toro Rosso took on the power unit for 2018 and Red Bull were convinced to take the gamble for 2019, although there are doubts whether it will be competitive.

The Ducati maintains its HP advantage, but Petrucci then crashed it
After Day 2 saw Maverick Vinales (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP) miss out on setting the fastest ever lap of Sepang by just 0.067, Friday saw action in Malaysia end on a high as not one but six riders went quicker than Jorge Lorenzo’s quickest effort in 2018. The quickest of them all, however, was Danilo Petrucci (Mission Winnow Ducati) as the Italian stormed the timesheets with an awe-inspiring 1:58.239 after 32 laps – with rookie Francesco Bagnaia (Alma Pramac Racing) hot on his heels and only a fitting 0.063 in arrears after 21 laps. Next came his teammate Jack Miller only another small margin further back, the Aussie doing 47 laps and quick despite a crash, with Andrea Dovizioso (Mission Winnow Ducati) completing the top four, three tenths off the top. All in all, a stunner of a day for Ducati machinery.

UPDATE
 America’s fastest-growing jerky brand, Cattleman’s Cut, is looking to further fuel sales by partnering with former Baywatch star, Carmen Electra, while simultaneously sponsoring the Jim Dunn Funny Car for the 2019 National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) season. 

Cattleman’s Cut, a wildly popular meat snacks brand within the Oberto portfolio, is creating a wealth of content that pairs Electra, dressed as The Cattlewoman, with the Cattleman’s Cut Funny Car, the already established Cattleman character (Who also happens to be Oberto CEO, Tom Hernquist) and a group of beleaguered young men who are guilty of a series of man-fractions that range from getting a personalized license plate which reads “Big Stud” to using their cell phone instead of a tire iron to fix a flat.
