Martin Truex Jr. has a chance to join former NASCAR greats Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart as kings of the roads. "I love coming to these road courses". It also assured Elliott a spot in the playoffs as he became only the fifth driver to win a race outside of the Big 3 of Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick and Truex, who have combined to win 16 of 22 races. It is an off-weekend for Cup, so will Chase try to find a ride to race his dad? The reigning Cup champion figures he's successful on road courses because he enjoys the challenge of the rare righthand turns.

Hamlin traversed the 2.45-mile layout at 125.534 miles per hour in qualifying on Saturday, just ahead of series points leader Kyle Busch. It's Hamlin's 27th career pole in Cup.

Chase Elliott is the son of 1988 NASCAR Cup Series champion Bill Elliott.

Busch pointed to Joey Logano as an example.

"That's the goal. We want to win another race".

Truex has four victories, but three of those wins have come in the last eight outings. It was a two-car race as the rest of the field was more than 11 seconds back.

The race promised to turn into a fuel mileage race as the laps wound down, and nobody has been better with the strategy than Truex and crew chief Cole Pearn. But Truex's No. 78 Toyota skidded, Elliott regrouped and pulled away, and Truex sputtered home, out of fuel. "I'm so thrilled, so emotional, so much relief, working on three years and I hadn't won one". The only Xfinity race I ever won was right here on a road course, and lo and behold, he wins his first on a road course. "He did a good job of putting his auto exactly where it needed to be and not making a mistake".

Fellow Georgia racer David Ragan is excited to see Elliott back in a vehicle in NASCAR.

The trio was as dominant as always last week at Pocono when Busch and Harvick had to start at the back of the field after their cars failed postqualifying inspection.

Busch's day was ruined when Matt DiBenedetto brought out a caution just past the midpoint of the race.

Catching up has been an uphill battle, even for drivers under the same roof.

Here's all the information you need to watch the Go Bowling at The Glen love. His last Xfinity race was October 2005 at Memphis. "That doesn't happen because everybody is improving and you can not improve that much".

"It was a decent race", Suarez said.

"It's not that he's not ready or that he doesn't feel like he's ready", Busch said Saturday prior to Cup qualifying at Watkins Glen.

Logano started from the pole in the road race that was red-flagged for rain, forcing the drivers to briefly switch to rain tires.

AJ Allmendinger drove the No. 23 to a second-place finish Saturday in the Xfinity race at The Glen.

Keselowski spun out trying to pass Logano with less than three laps to go and finished 10th.
