Dale Earnhardt Jr. left the door cracked open for racing beyond Friday night‘s GoBowling 250 at Richmond Raceway in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. In a spontaneous Q&A with fans on Twitter, Earnhardt responded to a question about whether Friday (7:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN/NBC Sports App, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) would be his final race. RELATED: Schedule for Richmond | Xfinity entry list Earnhardt said he‘d only run races for JR Motorsports that involve sponsorship packages that help fund races for the other four teams.

Las Vegas Checkered and Black Flags

Race Story and Results Pete Pistone distributes this week’s checkered and black flags following the weekend of racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Checkered Flags Brad Keselowski A pretty good time of the season for Keselowski to get hot. After ending the regular season with crown jewel wins in the Southern 500 at Darlington and the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis, Keselowski kicked off the playoffs with a third straight win, leading 75 laps on his way to victory lane on Sunday. Team Penske Keselowski scored the 500th career motorsports win for legendary team owner Roger Penske.
