Snow forces NASCAR to postpone Cup race in Virginia

Although performance had improved this season, Bowyer still hadn't won in 190 races and counting entering Martinsville with little indication the drought was reaching its endpoint. The move to SHR was supposed to turn Bowyer's fortunes around, but his struggles continued through his first year in the No. 14 Ford. This week NASCAR returns to their roots when they travel to Martinsville Speedway in Virginia.

Both father and son got their wish. "For whatever reason, it felt right coming up here. We're trying to get there".

A wintry mix forced NASCAR to cancel nearly two days of activities and turn its first stop at a short track this season into a Monday afternoon race. It was his first win driving for SHR, the team he joined as Tony Stewart's replacement a year ago. The only time his lead was threatened was in the final three laps when Bowyer got on his bumper and the two battled side-by-side around lapped traffic.

Turkey hopes for further development of relations with EU - Erdogan
Borissov said that "I think that before the end of our EU presidency (the end of June) another EU-Turkey summit will be held". So far this incentive has not been realised and Erdogan is expected to press this point strongly in the talks.

Blaney's auto looked like it was untouchable in the second stage, but adjustments during the caution seemed to kill his momentum.

"It's where you want to be", said Truex, who's never won in 24 starts at Martinsville.

No fans will forget when Bayne, then only 20 years old, stunned the world with his 2011 Daytona victory.

The 13 year Cup Series veteran let out a loud cheer as he walked to the front of the press conference with his young son, Cash, and large group of family standing in the back. What do you do?

Steve Smith, David Warner, Cameron Bancroft likely to get sanctioned
The ASC expects and requires that Australian teams and athletes demonstrate unimpeachable integrity in representing our country. On the face of it, the one-match ban imposed by the ICC, as well as a 100% match fee fine, might seem relatively lenient.

Ragan earned two restrictor plate victories in the span of three seasons toward the beginning of the decade, but he's come up dry since then. As much as he pleaded with wife, Lorra, the victory party won't be traveling to San Antonio to watch Kansas play. "I just made a mistake there".

Lorra Bowyer shook her head no.

The most recent victor at Martinsville, Kyle Busch, starts second.

Disappointing day: Defending STP 500 champion Brad Keselowski saw his streak of four straight top-five finishes at Martinsville snapped. His chances of winning again appear to have gone up now that he's with Stewart-Haas Racing, as Bowyer will surely confirm. The highest-finishing Chevrolet driver in the second stage was AJ Allmendinger at eighth. To make sure it happened at this track, I tell you, it meant a lot to me to put it all together. He was less than a lap away from a Daytona 500 win and has finished 14th or better in every race so far. "It was just time". Doing so meant Harvick slowed in front of Hamlin, and Hamlin crumpled the nose of his vehicle when he ran into the back of Harvick. I know I'm going to win races. "It was just light bumps, and he slammed on the brakes. I would probably say the best ever without question". It all led to Denny Hamlin edging the field for the Stage 1 win.
