Truex Jr. Beats Field At Charlotte Motor Speedway

Truex Jr. Beats Field At Charlotte Motor Speedway”

"Man, just thanks to my guys". It shows just how much this stuff means to us. He would then be involved in bringing out two more cautions, eventually finishing 29th and six laps behind race-winner Martin Truex Jr.

"We weren't even close to being able to win at the beginning of the race", Truex said". It's frustrating to run like this. We're definitely exhausted of running second.

Only 25 points separate Elliott in fourth place from Ricky Stenhouse Jr.in 12th, with Talladega all but certain to scramble the standings before the Round of 12 elimination race at Kansas Speedway two weeks later. Just a lot of things, I guess.

"We thought if we could be 15th to 10th, it would be a good day for us", he said. "Everybody in the field had a bad stop at some point today, so it was a good day for our Jimmy John's/Busch Ford, and everybody is doing a good job with the speed of the cars". They got us in position, and we were able to keep it. "That was where Martin (Truex, Jr.) 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". Larson wound up 11th for the restart after one of his crewmen slipped when servicing the auto and Harvick was back up to second.

Larson also rallied from overshooting his pit box during the first flurry of stops, an error that dropped him outside the top 30 in the running order. In the final laps, though, runner-up Chase Elliott and third-place finisher Kevin Harvick had no answer for Truex's No. 78 Furniture Row Racing Toyota Camry.

McDOWELL SLIDES: The fourth caution of the afternoon appeared on Lap 117 when Michael McDowell lost control of his vehicle and did a long slide across the top of the track in the second turn.

"For sure, I didn't see him (Bowyer)", Newman said. "I knew what it was, I knew what it felt like, but the only way to do it was to get out and cool down". "It would be nice to run top-10 all race here, but we struggled up and down". (Crew chief) Cole (Pearn) was mad about it and in 20 minutes we're like 'All right, I think this is where we went wrong.' And he's like 'Yeah, that's where we went wrong. Harvick led 39 laps in the stage, second to Hamlin's 40.

Busch's vehicle got loose and into the wall on lap 136. His first and third incidents resulted in cautions.

Jimmie Johnson comes into today's race with 11/1 odds.

When the race ended, Busch climbed out of his auto and lay down on the artificial turf that separates pit road and the front stretch.

NOTES: NASCAR moved the start of the Bank of America 500 up by an hour in an attempt to beat forecasted rain.

Austin Dillon claimed his first-career Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series win in the Coca-Cola 500 at Charlotte in May, the most recent Cup Series race at the track.

Sunday's victory in the Bank of America 500 was Truex's sixth of the 2017 season, and his second career win at Charlotte Motor Speedway. She has a chemotherapy session scheduled today.

Although he has won the All-Star race this this year and has won eight Xfinity Series races and seven Truck races, he has never won a Cup points race at the track. During the pit stops that followed, the teams of Larson and Johnson had missteps, pushing them out of the top 10 for the restart. Dale Earnhardt Jr. went to a backup auto after a practice crash Friday. Both cars were damaged, Newman's more heavily.
