Truex wins as Toyota stays flawless in playoffs

"I was just really loose in all day over the bumps and things". We kept digging. The pit crew was flawless.

WHO'S HOT: Chase Elliott had his second consecutive second-place finish and third in four playoff races at Charlotte.

"I think he is fine", Gibbs said, per Bob Pockrass of "That was where Martin came on and got his track position and we lost ours, and it was just hard to get all of it back, there, toward the end".

He fought back to finish third. "That says a lot about the team and hopefully we can keep it up and run decent the next two weeks".

"It stinks to give up points", Busch said. "[But] if you see something suspicious, just tell us".

"We weren't even close to being able to win at the beginning of the race", Truex said". They got us in position, and we were able to keep it. He wasn't the strongest early - the first two stage victories went to Kevin Harvick, and Truex didn't earn Stage 1 playoff points for the first time since July - but he was untouchable by the final segment.

KYLE, AGAIN: A long day for Kyle Busch got longer with 55 laps to go when he spun out, causing the race's eighth caution. Larson wound up 11th for the restart after one of his crewmen slipped when servicing the vehicle and Harvick was back up to second. He also earned a slot in the playoff's third round with the win, the fourth in four races for auto manufacturer Toyota. At the checkered flag, he was 10th.

NEWMAN VS. BOWYER: The race's second caution flew because of contact between Ryan Newman and Clint Bowyer exiting Turn 2 on Lap 43.

"I'm not going to be happy until I get a Cup win there because that is something that has haunted me every day since last November", Bowman said. "That was something we tried to get better at and we got a little better, but we needed a little bit more".

Young gun Kyle Larson came into today's race with a strong vehicle, and it showed most of the day on Sunday, as he continuously fought his way to the front of the field. After the ensuing pit stops, Larson took the lead, with Truex second. Harvick retook the lead on the next restart on lap 121 and ran up front for the remainder of the second stage. The one-car team based in Denver had made significant progress with driver Kurt Busch, and team owner Barney Visser wanted to continue that upward trajectory after Busch moved on. It didn't matter much anyway, as he got into the wall a few more times, ultimately finishing 29th and six laps down. His first and third incidents resulted in cautions.

RAGAN, PATRICK CRASH: David Ragan slid across the track and was hit by Danica Patrick on Lap 266, bringing out the race's seventh caution.

Truex's win put him far above the pack, but little else transpired on Sunday to create any clarity or separation between the rest.

Charlotte Motor Speedway has always been a particularly temperature-sensitive track, so it's no surprise that an afternoon race on the 1.5-mile oval was vastly different - and much better - than a night version. She's has a chemotherapy session scheduled Monday. He has four career victories on restrictor-plate tracks and his most recent Cup win - almost four years ago - came at Talladega.

Truex surprisingly finished Stage 1outside the top 10.

"Overall just the way we've been running since the playoffs started has been refreshing, and definitely makes it a lot of fun to come to the track and know that our vehicle is going to drive pretty good, our pit stops have been really nice, and now is definitely the time of year to do that", said Elliott, who has seemed to shake a summer slump.

Truex's Charlotte victory came on an extremely humid day that left several drivers needing medical attention after the event, including Kyle Busch and Ty Dillon. Sherry Pollex, Truex's longtime girlfriend, was not at Charlotte Motor Speedway but instead home with her mom and family watching the Bank of America 500 on television.
