MTJ ended up leading a race-high 186 laps, helping Toyota maintain its dominance in Virginia's capital city.
Truex regained the lead for the last time after green-flag pit stops that started with just more than 80 laps to go. "I knew I had like 25 laps, but then it started raining a little bit and I was like, 'Man, we might not even make it to the end so I have to get by quick here, '" Custer said.
"My dad and I haven't done anything yet side-by-side, but really I'm looking for a win with him this season", she said. It was the season's first race under the lights, the first win of the season for Martin Truex, Junior and the first career win on a short track for Truex.
"It means a lot to finally break through", Truex said in Victory Lane.
Busch has been among the top ten in this season races. Now, Busch will try to win his third straight Richmond race.
Harvick was sixth in the first round, second to Kyle Busch in the second round and first with the pole at stake. "It's really cool. As a driver, you wish it could widen out and give you more options of being able to run around in different grooves, but it hasn't shown us that the last couple of years". You have to have good brakes, as well, and be able to turn the center.

Busch has finished in the top 10 in each of his last 10 races.
