Aric Almirola wins Busch Pole at Atlanta
  first since 2012
Aric Almirola topped the leaderboard at 181.473 mph in the No. 10 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford on Friday, winning the Busch Pole Award for Sunday’s Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 (2 p.m. ET, FOX, PRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) at Atlanta Motor Speedway. This is Almirola’s first pole at Atlanta, and the second of his career — the first came in 2012. Right behind the No. 10 Ford was Ricky Stenhouse Jr. in the No. 17 Roush Fenway Racing Ford at 180.428 mph.
Rossi mentally ready to win 2019 IndyCar title
  He will have to beat best pool of talent in IndyCar history

Alexander Rossi burst onto the IndyCar series scene in his rookie year by winning the historic 100th Indianapolis 500, but he finished 11th in the points. He constantly reiterated his goal to be more consistent, which he was in 2017, when he won at Watkins Glen and improved to a team-best seventh in the points. In 2018 he was in contention to win the title after winning three races, but he was 2nd to Scott Dixon in the end. In 2019 he aims to win it all.  But he will have to beat the deepest talent pool in IndyCar history.

Scenes from F1 Testing in Barcelona Day 4

Using the softest C5 tires Pirelli makes, Nico Hulkenberg gave Renault something to pound their chest about as the F1 teams wrapped up week #1 testing in Barcelona. In fact the four fastest times were set on the C5 tires with Lewis Hamilton rounding out the top-5 for Mercedes on a set of C4 tires.  All five were in the 1m17s bracket. Federico Basile was there to snap these photos for AutoRacing1.com
Pirelli summarizes 2019 F1 tire performance
  They made it more confusing for the fans
It’s still early days, but so far the tires seem to be performing largely as we expected, with a performance gap of around 0.6 to 0.7 seconds between each compound. In more detail, it’s something around 0.6 seconds between C2 and C3 so far, and roughly the same gap between C3 and C4, which were the most used tires in this session. Due to the cool conditions this week, there was a bit of graining as expected, which should disappear when temperatures become warmer during the actual season.

Using the softest tires Pirelli makes, Daniil Kvyat topped the third day of Formula 1 pre-season testing for Toro Rosso after edging out Alfa Romeo’s Kimi Raikkonen who also used the soft C5 tires. Taking advantage of 'happy hour' temperatures, Kvyat managed to set the fastest time of pre-season so far in the process. Federico Basile was there for AutoRacing1.com to capture these fantastic photos.

Federico Basile was there for AutoRacing1.com and snapped these photos.

Sebastian Vettel's morning time in the SF-90 Ferrari was enough to beat McLaren driver Carlos Sainz Jr on the opening day of preseason testing in Barcelona. Vettel set a 1m18.161s in the morning session on the C3 tires - the middle compound in Pirelli's testing range to Sainz’s 1m18.558s – only 0.397s slower than Vettel but his time was set on softer rubber. Our Federico Basile was there to bring you all these photos.
Denny Hamlin Gets Emotion Filled Daytona 500 Victory
  by Brandon Reed
Denny Hamlin scored an emotional overtime victory in Sunday’s 61st annual Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway. It marks Hamlin’s second win in the Great American Race, and it comes while driving a car in honor of J.D. Gibbs, team president and co-founder of Joe Gibbs Racing, who passed away earlier this year. After a trio of multi-car crashes decimated the field, leaving only 14 cars on the lead lap, it came down to a battle of Joe Gibbs Racing teammates between Hamlin and Kyle Busch.
Madness in Mexico sees di Grassi win
  Formula E in photo finish
Despite only leading the final few metros of the Mexico City E-Prix, Lucas di Grassi got his first win of the season for Audi out of pure luck. He drove past an out of power Pascal Wehrlein with meters to spare to snatch victory away. Having saved power in third place for the majority of the race, in a true rope-a-dope strategy, di Grassi was able to pass Oliver Rowland with five minutes to spare before launching an attack on pole-sitter Wehrlein in the final few laps.
