Martin Truex wins second in a row to open playoffs, Richmond results

Martin Truex was able to get by teammate Kyle Busch in the closing laps of Saturday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Richmond Raceway.

Brad Keselowski began the Federated Auto Parts 400 on the pole but it became clear by the final segment that the race winner was going to come from the Toyota camp of Joe Gibbs Racing.

WIth Truex and Busch first and second, drivers Denny Hamlin and Erik Jones were able to finish behind them to give JGR their first ever 1-2-3-4 finish in the Cup Series.

After never winning on a short track prior to this season, Truex has now gone back to back at Richmond.
