Martin Truex Jr. Gets First Win With Gibbs At Richmond

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

Truex had led since the race went back to green on lap 136 following a caution.

"I got there, I was just a couple laps late getting there", Logano said.

"Short tracks, I think it's fine", Jones said. "It is certainly the home track for me but it's just exciting because I know that I could very well have a great weekend ahead of us, really focus a lot of my efforts on how can we go out there and dominate the race, not just win, but dominate".

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.

Alexander Rossi will try to win his second consecutive race through the streets of Long Beach from the pole.

Busch said Richmond is "getting a little trickier" due to the combination of its aging race surface and the current Cup vehicle. You have to have good brakes, as well, and be able to turn the center. I've always really enjoyed this track.

RICHMOND, VA - APRIL 13: Clint Bowyer, driver of the #14 Haas Automation Ford, leads Joey Logano, driver of the #22 Shell Pennzoil Ford, during the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond Raceway on April 13, 2019 in Richmond, Virginia. With about 40 to go, Bowyer almost caught him, but Truex never let him pass and finally, Bowyer relinquished the second spot to Joey Logano, who seemed to have the faster vehicle of the top two.

Portland wins Game 1 against the Thunder 104-99
The Blazers - who made 12 of 20 shots from the field, 7 of 10 from 3-point range - took a 39-25 advantage into the second quarter. However, the team probably approached this 2019 NBA Playoffs series with the Portland Trail Blazers with a bit of confidence.

But on the issue of whether Trump obstructed justice, Barr said the report neither exonerated or indicted the president.

When they all had new tires and enough fuel to finish, Truex was back in front, followed by Bowyer, Logano, Harvick and Hamlin. "I could just roll out, and here it doesn't benefit you to wait so you just roll out and get your lap in".

And the inspection heavily impacted the starting grid with eight of the 37 cars failing inspection at least once.

Other cars that failed inspection include those of Aric Almirola, Denny Hamlin, Matt Tifft and Joey Gase.

As a result, NASCAR disqualified their qualifying speeds, sending them to the rear of the field, disallowed their pit stall selections and ejected one engineer from each team for the race.

No racing next week for the Easter break. "Tonight we didn't have the best auto, but we've lost some here with the best vehicle". "We've had decent speed".

Kyle Busch led 101 laps and finished eighth for his ninth straight Top 10 finish to start the season.

However, he'll likely wonder what might have been, after coming up a few feet and a lap or two short of another Cup Series victory on Saturday under the Richmond floodlights.
