Truex Finally Wins with Joe Gibbs at Richmond

Kyle Busch Winning the Vote Friday's auto racing roundup: Harvick wins pole at Richmond

Kevin Harvick won the pole for Saturday night's Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Richmond Raceway. Finally it all came together for his 20th career Cup victory. Three weeks in a row I felt like we had a auto that could win the race and we haven't won.

Kyle Busch has won the 100-lap first stage of the NASCAR Cup Series race at Richmond Raceway. He had to hold off the charges of first Bowyer and then Logano in the closing laps. It is home. It's one that I've been to many, many times even when I wasn't racing.

"I was able to get to the 19, but it just wasn't enough", he noted.

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

Logano appeared to have a vehicle capable of taking the victory in his own right for much of the 400-lap race, running Truex down and passing him to win the second stage as he led 52 laps in the middle portion of the event.

"Everything you want as a racecar driver, you've got to have (the) most of all of it and, if you don't, then you better hope you have more forward bite than the rest of them".

When they all had new tires and enough fuel to finish, Truex was back in front, followed by Bowyer, Logano, Harvick and Hamlin.

Joe Gibbs said he can't explain his team's dominant start to the season, but he's going to enjoy it while it lasts. "It is kind of a double-edged sword, running that low line, because you go to the bottom but you can't get the drive to clear someone ... and getting to the outside is pretty tough". "I think you actually kind of lose a little bit of the drama of a auto going back out and can that vehicle knock the vehicle that is on the bubble out". And the inspection heavily impacted the starting grid with eight of the 37 cars failing inspection at least once.

Five other teams failed inspection and had their qualifying speeds and pit selection disallowed. They include local favorite Denny Hamlin, a three-time victor on the 0.75-mile oval, Chase Elliott and Matt Tifft. They were seven-time series champion Jimmie Johnson, Aric Almirola, Erik Jones, Daniel Suarez and Joey Gase.

Who Had a Bad Day: The miserable season for Kyle Larson continued Saturday night. He is well prepared this year as he said that they have been working well with Adam Stevens since 2015 and he is confident that he will achieve. "We've had decent speed". "Everyone at JGR is doing a great job...we've been chipping away at it, so hopefully we can get better from here on out". Bowyer had his fourth straight top-10 finish...

Chase Elliott started the night 10th in points, but ran 15th and has just two top-10s this year. Besides his success in the Cup series, Busch has started four races in the Truck series and won them all, and won three of four Xfinity races.
