Today’s Folds of Honor Quik Trip 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup race has reached halfway (163 of a scheduled 325 laps) at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Martin Truex Jr. is in the lead in the caution-free race. Truex has led 26 laps thus far.

Kevin Harvick is in second, followed by Jimmie Johnson, Carl Edwards and pole-sitter Kurt Busch.

The elder Busch brother has led the most laps (62).

Sixth through 10th are Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kyle Busch, Ryan Newman, Chase Elliott and Ricky Stenhouse Jr.

Matt Kenseth led 47 laps but fell to 29th place after a pit road violation caused him to return for a pass-through penalty. He lost a lap for his pass-through penalty and was not scored a lap after repeatedly ignoring the black flag.

Also not having a good day is Clint Bowyer, who is four laps off the pace, in 36th place.
