NASCAR Cup Series EXTENDED HIGHLIGHTS: Bass Pro Shops Night Race | 9/16/23 | Motorsports on NBC

After two tumultuous races, Denny Hamlin locked himself into the next round with a win at Bass Pro Shops Night Race. Hamlin looked strong the past two weeks, but misfortune and mistakes kept him out of victory lane. Hamlin will also be joined in the next round by both drivers on his 23XI team, Tyler Reddick and Bubba Wallace.

Surprisingly, Joey Logano won’t be moving on. The 2022 NASCAR Cup Series Champion had struggled throughout the race and ended up a lap down. The nail in the coffin for Logano’s playoff hopes would come on Lap 262 of 500 when Corey LaJoie spun on the backstretch. Logano drove into the multi-car wreck and hit the inside wall. The Penske Ford’s left-real wheel was terminally damaged, and the champion was out.

Race Results

1. Denny Hamlin (Gibbs)2. Kyle Larson (Hendrick) – +2.437 seconds3. Christopher Bell (Gibbs) – +5.098 seconds4. Chris Buescher (RFK) – +9.206 seconds
5. Ty Gibbs (Gibbs) – +9.237 seconds

Ferrari Ends Red Bull’s Record F1 Win Streak In Singapore

Carlos Sainz and Scuderia Ferrari drove a tactically and strategically great race to win the Singapore Grand Prix, taking advantage of Red Bull’s rare dip in performance. Both Red Bull drivers failed to make Q3 in qualifying, with Max Verstappen lining up 11th on the grid. The world champion would be a factor for the win after a failed tire strategy gamble. Verstappen finished fifth, ending his record win streak at ten races.

However, it wouldn’t be a cakewalk for Sainz with Red Bull out of the picture. The closing stages of the race had Mercedes charging towards the front on fresh medium tires. The Spaniard used McLaren’s Lando Norris as buffer, purposely driving slow enough to keep Norris with DRS range and help the McLaren stay ahead of Mercedes.

Race Results

1. Carlos Sainz (Ferrari)2. Lando Norris (McLaren) – +0.812 seconds3. Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) – +1.269 seconds4. Charles Leclerc (Ferrari) – +21.177 seconds
5. Max Verstappen (Red Bull) – +21.441 seconds
