Truex finally wins at Kansas Speedway after late restart

A year ago, Martin Truex Jr. led 172 laps during the Go Bowling 400 but still couldn't get to Victory Lane. Larson, who qualified for the post-season last season by virtue of his first career win at MI, struggled mightily in two starts at Kansas past year, finishing 35th and 30th.

The "Closer" has led a total of 2,112 laps since 2014, almost a thousand more than Martin Truex Jr. "He's definitely feeling the worst of everybody", Patrick said.

"All my friends and family were out there for that race and I always look forward to getting back out there and remembering that memory a little bit". "Some of those races, better would be a win". He stopped at the start-finish line and got the checkered flag tossed down to him, then paraded briefly along the front stretch. I get it. If you're off, you're off, but I watched my guys move the auto and adjust the vehicle accordingly for it and then actually overcompensate on it because we were anxious about not making it.

Gone are the days when the start and finish of the race were the only important parts. "I thought we had a pretty decent auto". He and Jeff Gordon have each taken first three times on the Kansas oval.Watch out for Kevin Harvick: He has finished second or better in five of his last seven Kansas races.

"Well, we're third, but wanted to be first so today was an ok day", said Truex with a smile. We worked our way through it. It didn't even take two-time Indianapolis 500 victor Juan Pablo Montoya long to get up to speed. That meant Truex restarted third, directly behind Blaney with 18 laps to go. "It was a solid night", the No. 4 Busch Light Ford driver said. That, however, is where we come in.

US President Donald Trump tries to pressure Senate Republicans on health care
For instance, the AARP is lobbying against changes to how insurers price plans that are sold to older Americans. Trump tweeted from his private golf course in central New Jersey, where he has stayed since late Thursday.

He was unable to make a qualifying lap Friday, forcing Jones to start back in 32nd.

"We just stuck with it all night". Last season, no one was better on the "cookie cutter" tracks and while Truex dominated just about every time the series raced on them, he only had two victories to show for it. While it might not make much of a difference to the drivers, there is no doubt that the excitement ramps up under the bright lights for the night races. Both Team Penske drivers, Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano, and Richard Petty Motorsports driver Aric Almirola were without their regular crew chiefs for the Kansas Speedway race as they were serving suspensions for rear-end suspension issues discovered during post-race inspections at various race tracks. We just want to keep working up in the standings each week and keep having better runs and having better finishes. "We tried to adjust on our vehicle and it never made it better".

The win was the 47th for Busch in the Truck Series, leaving him four back of the record set by Ron Hornaday, and one he thought belonged to Rhodes in the final laps. Blaney led followed by Larson, Kyle Busch, Truex, Hamlin, McMurray, Kahne, Kenseth and Logano when the race returned to green. He has finished 12 in the last two races, but also placed sixth at Daytona.

"I don't know exactly what the intent was and what they are trying to accomplish, but it does bring some intensity that wasn't there in the past, especially if you are in that eighth, ninth, 10th spot coming down to those last few (stage) laps", Dale Earnhardt Jr. said. The debris that was scattered across the track caused a red flag, stopping the race for almost 30 minutes. The race took three hours, 24 minutes and 16 seconds to run.
