"They used it as an opportunity to go and take some pictures of me", Almirola said.

"We know we're going to screw up".

"I'm glad to be able to sit here and talk to you all this morning", Almirola said. "And from a booth standpoint, the three of us is not going to be a traditional booth, where it's me leading the show", Harvick said.

The Austrian fought off a double match point at 4-6 in the tiebreaker, then thwarted a third match point at 6-7 before surviving. In the women s tournament, Venus Williams overcame determined Briton Johanna Konta to win their third-round clash 6-1, 3-6, 6-1.

"The bone is, for lack of a better term, crunched and it's something that first and foremost we've got to get some of the edema or some of the blood out of the bone and that is something that is a time phenomenon as much as anything", he said.

Almirola says he felt pain in his back on the initial impact with Logano and then the rear end of his auto lifted high enough that he could see the pavement below him. Once safety personnel arrived, Almirola explained his condition and "they went through all of their proper protocol to get me out of the vehicle safely without moving my spine and stabilizing my spine". So there's definitively some physical therapy to come. First, however, they must deal with Almirola's acute pain. He was joined by Richard Petty Motorsports CEO Brian Moffitt and Dr. William Heisel, director of OrthoCarolina Motorsports.

"We're working with our partners". "To have this happen and sort of derail all of the momentum and progress we had made is tough". We were mainly concerned about Aric when it happened.

As for besting Santana, Marquez said: "I have a lot of pride in beating Santana, one of the best pitchers in the game right now". The Rockies and Twins complete a series between surprising division leaders with a day-night doubleheader at Target Field.

Almirola admitted he probably should have avoided the wreck, but he said he went high right as the incident started to unfold. "But right now, we're thrilled that Regan's in the vehicle for this weekend". A week later, he was hospitalized overnight in Kansas before flying home to North Carolina to receive another diagnosis. He stayed in the auto momentarily before climbing out under his own power. He has that type of record.

This week has been a whirlwind for Regan Smith. Nope, the Monster Energy Open is the gateway event to the All-Star Race later Saturday night, where the Open's three stage winners - along with a fan-voted driver - will round out the 20-car field for the main event. Smith quickly responded with "absolutely" before getting everything ready for this weekend.

"The doctor told me the very first day he saw me, 'obviously you're in good shape".

Cyberattack is 'wake-up call' for governments
The attacks exploited the computers because they were running outdated versions of Microsoft's Windows operating system. He adds that governments should report vulnerabilities like the one at the center of the WannaCry attack.

Smith is familiar with being selected as a last-minute replacement, having been tabbed by Chip Ganassi Racing, Hendrick Motorsports, and Stewart-Haas Racing (twice) since 2012 to substitute for Kyle Larson, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kurt Busch, and Tony Stewart, respectively. Although he does not have a full time ride in Cup, Smith runs in the Camping World Truck Series for RBR Enterprises. Because he won't compete in every regular-season race as required by NASCAR rules, he will need a waiver from NASCAR to remain eligible for the playoffs.
