Results, stats for Cup race at Richmond Raceway

0 Comments

Kyle Busch won his third consecutive race of the season after starting 32nd in the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond Raceway, the deepest he’s began a Cup race and won.

Busch’s previous worst starting position in a win was 30th at Sonoma Raceway in 2008.

For the eighth time in his career, Chase Elliott finished second. That matches the number of runner-up finishes his Hall of Fame father Bill Elliott earned before winning his first Cup race.

Denny Hamlin finished third at his hometown track. Joey Logano and Kevin Harvick rounded out the top five.

Martin Truex Jr. was leading until a slow pit stop late in the race put him back in the pack. He finished 14th.
