Martin Truex Jr., Kyle Busch 1-2 in NASCAR Cup points after Darlington


Martin Truex Jr. continues to maintain a commanding lead in the NASCAR Cup standings.

Truex, who won both stages of Sunday’s Bojangles’ Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway, has a 107-point lead over Kyle Busch.

In so doing, Truex clinches the NASCAR Cup regular-season title.

Kyle Larson is third (-116 points) followed by Kevin Harvick (-133) and Sunday’s race winner, Denny Hamlin, is fifth in the standings (-190).

Just one race remains in the 26-race regular season: this Saturday at Richmond Raceway.
