Joey Logano wins stage 2 at Richmond Raceway

Kyle Busch Winning the Vote

With inspections complete, the official second row of the Toyota Owners 400 starting grid includes Joey Logano and Kyle Busch, with Martin Truex Jr. and Austin Dillon in the third row. Finally it all came together for his 20th career Cup victory.

It was fitting that it came on the three-quarters-of-a-mile, D-shaped oval at Richmond because the 186 laps he led marked the fourth time in the past five Richmond races he has led the most laps.

Truex, who won the 2017 Cup Series championship while driving for the now-defunct Furniture Row Racing, took the lead for good with about 100 laps to go and went on to get his first victory for his new team - Joe Gibbs Racing.

Erik Jones will start on the outside of the front row, with Kurt Busch and Joey Logano in the second row. Truex was never seriously challenged for the lead until Logano caught him with five to go.

"I've always enjoyed this track", Truex said. Fun race, but, gosh, two weeks in a row I felt like we had a vehicle that could win the race, and we haven't won. His Red Bull Toro Rosso team did not have enough time to fix the batted auto for qualifying. Yeah, I mean, I was struggling the last 40 laps. If we sat there and ran door-to-door, the No. 4 wouldve got me, too.

But his opponents down the stretch weren't ideal either and, as Truex noted, "Being out in front was important". He was followed by Logano, Truex, Harvick and Bowyer. I was faster on a long run than him, but by the time you get to him, your stuff is pretty wore out.

Embiid said the voracious booing that was largely absent during the dark days of the Sixers 10-win season was tough to hear. Philadelphia coach Brett Brown called Johnson's actions "completely unacceptable".

With 30 laps to go in the stage, Truex maintained a small advantage over Logano with Harvick continuing to run in third. "(I) started getting there and then slid up and got tight and I couldn't turn underneath him". Absolutely", he said. "You can go through the whole beginning stretch of the season - we've had a really good stretch to the beginning of this season and unfortunately we're coming up to one of my most favorite race tracks in the world, Talladega, in a couple weeks, that can certainly end that momentum at any particular moment and knock you down off your pedestal or whatever you want to call it.

Kyle Busch finished eighth to push his top-10 streak to 11 races. Leader Kyle Busch was penalized for speeding on pit road and sent back to the 24th position. I'm just really happy to get our first win with Gibbs.

Busch entered the season's ninth race at Richmond Raceway with an average finishing position of 3.38 through the season's first eight races. "But I also know in pro sports it's very hard to stay up there".

The post-race process is part of a new, more timely approach to inspection for all three NASCAR national series. "Really, that's been the focus for the last five days".

"We just didn't have enough time".
