During the first round of the relay, Jimmy Fallon and Gordon from Team Jimmy beat Team Tariq’s Tariq and Busch. But then Justin Bieber saved his team by beating Ferguson and Truex with Harvick’s assistance.

“I’ve learned a lot street racing.”
After the fun NASCAR race, Justin Bieber promoted his newly released album Purpose by performing “Sorry,” as reported by Hollywood Life.

Speaking to Esquire, Jimmy Fallon recently revealed a great number of things about his job of being a host of the long-running late-night talk show, and also about his biggest competition, according to E! Online.
Jimmy Fallon gave a candid interview to Esquire, as he appeared on the outlet’s December 2015 / January 2016 issue, which was released on November 24.
Getting the job as the Tonight Show host after Jay Leno in 2014, Jimmy Fallon spoke about his biggest competition today, Stephen Colbert, who hosts CBS’ The Late Show.
“It’s good. It just makes everyone work a little bit harder. This is my Madison Square Garden. This is my home court, I’m comfortable here — this is where I play the best. I’ve learned from the best coaches and played with the best players. And I’m not worried. I play to win.”
As for this season, Jimmy Fallon’s late night show is averaging about 1.33 million viewers in the coveted demographic of adults aged from 18 to 49, while Stephen Colbert’s Late Show has about 1.04 million viewers, according to E! Online.
Jimmy Fallon also said a few things about Stephen Colbert’s show ratings skyrocketing 60 percent higher than last season.
“I see them now and then. When they’re good, I can’t help it because people will e-mail me. When they’re not good, when they’re stagnant, I don’t hear from anybody. I talked to Jay Leno about this — he told me, ‘They’re gonna go up and down. Don’t worry about that side of it — just do your thing and have fun.’ Other people get paid to worry about those things. I don’t.”
Answering on what he thinks makes Colbert successful, it’s simply “being him,” Jimmy Fallon revealed.
“He’s not Letterman and I’m not Leno. No one’s the new anyone. He’s him, I’m me. Don’t even compare us — to anybody. I’m me. He’s him. Like, that’s the way it is. We’re totally ourselves. And that’s the only way you’re going to succeed. You have to be yourself, or else you can tell that it’s ungenuine.”
