Bristol: Dale Earnhardt, Jr. Accident Quotes
Not smiling today
Not smiling today
DALE EARNHARDT JR., NO. 88 NATIONWIDE CHEVROLET – Involved in an incident on lap 218

THEY ARE TRYING TO ADDRESS WHAT DAMAGE WAS DONE BEFORE THE INCIDENT AND WHAT DAMAGE WAS DONE AFTER YOU HIT THE WALL, BUT DID YOU HAVE ANY IDEA AT ALL THAT THERE WAS A PROBLEM?

“We came out of the pits and there’s some oil in the pit stall I noticed when I was getting lined-up for double file, is smoking. I don’t know why. But it’s got oil all over the engine compartment. So, in the corner, it just went straight in the wall. I don’t know what’s broke, but I think that’s the end of the day.”

YOU STARTED FROM THE REAR IN A BACK-UP CAR, BUT NOW YOUR DAY IS DONE. WHAT DID YOU SEE FROM WITHIN THE CAR?

“I guess I didn’t realize there was a wreck before that. I know everybody was slowing up and the caution was out. I tried to get on the brakes and it just wheel-hopped. It’s just a pretty big shame for our Bush’s Baked Beans Chevrolet. Like you said, we started last in our back-up and were rolling through there pretty good.

The former supremo was ousted from his position at the helm of the sport by new owners Liberty Media following the US company's recent $8 billion takeover.

But the 86-year-old was awarded the title of Chairman Emeritus of The Formula One Group, an honorary status which has left Ecclestone fairly unimpressed.

Ford's Q1 results do not bode well for 2017
DETROIT- -- The Super Duty pickup is hauling in cash for Ford Motor Co., but the company's bottom line is showing the effects of last year's redesign of the big truck.

The automaker on Thursday will report first-quarter earnings that are expected to decline about 50 percent from a year earlier. Among other factors, executives have pointed to higher parts costs associated with some of Ford's 2016 launches, including refreshes of the Escape and Fusion, a new Lincoln Continental and the first major redesign of the Super Duty since 1999.

Montana to close tax loophole on exotic cars
For years, many exotic car buyers have been registering their cars in Montana thanks to a loophole in the law that allows them to avoid paying sales tax. Now, according to local news site Bozeman Daily Chronicle, that may all come to an end with the “Ferrari Tax.” Here’s a look at the cars that will be affected, as well as the tax they’d have to pay if this bill goes through.

Up until now, many exotic car owners have gotten around sales tax by simply registering their vehicles with law firms that create special Limited Liability Companies. Now, as a part of House Bill 650, owners of exotic cars valued at over $150,000 may soon have to pay a one percent annual tax. This “Ferrari Tax,” Bozeman Daily Chronicle says, could raise up to $2.5 million in 2018, and even more in subsequent years.

Good morning from Barber Motorsports Park.  It looks like today's weather will be a repeat of Friday, sunny and 86 degrees.  The rain that was predicted earlier in the week for today is no longer in the forecast.  But a chance of early showers may happen on Sunday.

Yesterday's practice times were favorable for Team Penske, which has not had the best results in the first two races of this season.  Will Power, driving the number 12 Verizon entry, was second fastest in combined practice times.  Helio Castroneves, driving the number 3 entry, was fourth fastest.  And the newcomer, Josef Newgarden, sporting a new paint scheme on his car with Fitzgerald Glider Kits sponsorship, was sixth fastest.
