Truex Finally Wins At A Short Track

Listen to Kyle Busch sing'Cry Me a River after third season win

Three teams failed inspection multiple times and will start at the rear in addition to having their race engineers ejected for tonight's Toyota Owners 400 (7:30 p.m. ET, FOX).

It was the season's first race under the lights, the first win of the season for Martin Truex, Junior and the first career win on a short track for Truex.

Joey Logano came in a close second.

Denny Hamlin would love to think he has an advantage when it comes to racing at Richmond Raceway.

"At that last restart, I tried something a little bit different and it didn't work out". I just had to hold them off. Thanks to the pit crew-they had a great night.

"We're just really excited", Truex said.

"Sometimes in pro sports, you know, you get on a roll, things go well", Gibbs said. "Tonight, we didn't have the best vehicle, but we lost here with the best auto a bunch of times, so we just fought and battled".

Jumping past Clint Bowyer for second spot, the No. 22 had less than five laps to reel in leader Truex.

Nuggets No. 2 in West after tight win over Wolves
We're being physical on box-offs, on all the switches, and we're being aggressive and getting up into people, making them drive. The Rockets only make it harder on themselves if they allow the Jazz to get out to an early lead or a strong shooting start.

Logano got to Truex's back bumper at the white flag and put a sense of deja vu on the assembled crowd, as it appeared he might bump Truex out of the way for the win just as he did six months ago at Martinsville. Got a decent run off of (Turn) 2 on the last lap. and thought maybe could get to the outside.

"Then you have to figure out how to rebound and get back".

"We had a vehicle that was capable of winning for the third week straight and we didn't win", he said.

Scott Dixon qualified second Saturday, his best starting position at Long Beach, followed by the Team Penske trio Will Power, Josef Newgarden and Simon Pagenaud.

Two seconds behind Truex with 40 laps left, Bowyer quickly closed the deficit and made a move to the inside of Truex's No. 19 Toyota with 17 laps to go, but Truex protected the outside and kept enough momentum to keep Bowyer behind him.

Choosing a lane was a battle Logano was not going to win in his efforts to pass Truex.

"It's frustrating", said Bowyer, who scored his fourth straight top-10 result. "Ran out of time there. You go to the bottom and you can't get the drive to clear them and getting to the outside is pretty tough", he said. I lost. It sucks.

"Showers and t'storms will be a threat mostly in the morning for Richmond", Neudorff writes, "and while I am not ruling out a few stray showers or storms leading up to the start of the Toyota Owners 400, I think the race is mostly dry". Bowyer was third and Kevin Harvick fourth, giving Stewart-Haas Racing two top-four finishers. Brad Keselowski, Kyle Busch, Ryan Newman and Paul Menard completed the top 10.
