Truex wins another playoff race for Toyota

Kyle Busch won again in Dover. More

Kyle Busch emerged from the infield care center at Charlotte Motor Speedway carrying a water bottle, relieved that a long, exhausting day was finally over.

"When all that first happened, I didn't know if I'd ever be able to race in the series again competitively", Truex said. He is starting to emerge as a championship favorite.

"It feels really good, honestly", Truex said of his dominance this year. As I mentioned at the start of the playoffs, each driver who has gained a "Playoff Point" throughout the season and the first round will carry those over through this round and next.

Stage 1: Kevin Harvick started third and wasted no time racing to the front of the pack. But, it could have been much worse for Stenhouse, who was all over the board Sunday until he solidly cracked the top-15 late in the race. Stenhouse, last in the standings after Charlotte, has won the last two restrictor-plate races: at Talladega in May and at Daytona International Speedway in July.

The day picked up after practice when Earnhardt was given his retirement gift from Charlotte Motor Speedway: $100,000 to establish the Dale Earnhardt Jr.

NEWMAN VS. BOWYER: The race's second caution flew because of contact between Ryan Newman and Clint Bowyer exiting Turn 2 on Lap 43.

Williamson brought the same 1989 Bluebird school bus from Lumberton he camped in previous year.

The humidity drained several drivers, including Truex, who had to catch his breath after taking his sixth victory of the season. Johnson leads the way with eight victories in Charlotte.

On his third consecutive appearance in the NASCAR postseason, Jamie McMurray has advanced beyond the first round for the first time. The next race is at Talladega Superspeedway, not a favorable spot for Johnson. That means the big victor was Justin Allgaier, who leads the standings as the series shifts to Charlotte Motor Speedway for the final race of the round of 12 as four drivers will be eliminated after this week's Drive For The Cure 300. She's the Charlotte Motor Speedway's most beloved tour guide. Take last season, for example. He also earned a slot in the playoff's third round with the win, the fourth in four races for vehicle manufacturer Toyota. Fast facts: Justin Allgaier sits in first place ahead of this week's race.

William Byron is a driver I continue to put faith in. Daniel Hemric and Brennan Poole rounded out the top five at Dover.

His overall four times at the front led him to compile a triple-digit number of laps for just the second time this year (Atlanta in February he led 292).

After Talladega next week, the third race in this round will be held October 22 at another 1.5-mile oval - Kansas Speedway.

JAPAN GRAND PRIXSite: Suzuka, Japan. Race distance: 191.1 miles, 53 laps. He has six victories this year. "That is about as great of a battle as you can ask for a first elimination race". Vettel has won just once in his last nine races after a blistering start to 2017.

When those last three laps were finally over, there was no holding back.
