Where the short tracks are concerned, Kevin Harvick and his No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing team appear to have turned a corner. "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".
"I was struggling the last 40 laps", Truex said. "I think you actually kind of lose a little bit of the drama of a vehicle going back out, and can that auto knock the vehicle that is on the bubble out". "It's just the way it goes sometimes and you just have to work through it all and keep pushing to try to find more speed all the time".
"If we can win three in a row here at Richmond and match names like that - the Godfathers of our sport that built our sport to what it is today - would be pretty cool", he said. "I was able to get to the [No.] 19 [Truex] but it just wasn't enough".

Clint Bowyer came in third, pole victor Kevin Harvick finished fourth with Denny Hamlin completing the Top 5. Brad Keselowski dropped to eighth during the cycle and Kyle Busch, seeking his third victory in a row on the 0.75-mile, D-shaped oval, his fourth of the season and second in a row, fell back to 10th. Next up is a restrictor-plate race on April 28 at Talladega. MTJ ended up leading a race-high 186 laps, helping Toyota maintain its dominance in Virginia's capital city.
Logano got to Truex's back bumper at the white flag and put a sense of deja vu on the assembled crowd, as it appeared he might bump Truex out of the way for the win just as he did six months ago at Martinsville.
Larson has just two top-10 finishes in nine starts.
Busch has been among the top ten in this season races. Newman tied for his best finish of the year. Michael McDowell was running 26th when he cut a tire and slammed the wall handing him his second DNF of 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. "It is home. It's one that I've been to many, many times when I wasn't racing", he said. The new rules package did have an impact on the handling of the cars and speeds as well as tire wear was up some from previous year. "It's not been fun", Kyle Larson.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
