Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Results: Truex Jr. Conquers Kansas

Martin Truex Jr.

Martin Truex Jr. led the most laps for the third consecutive spring race at Kansas Speedway on Saturday night, but this time around he was able to win and take the checkered flag in the Go Bowling 400.
The Furniture Row Racing driver was ahead for a race-high 104 laps to score his second win of the season and ninth of his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series career.
“These races are so hard to win, any of those restarts I could’ve gotten beat on,” Truex said after the several late race restarts of the night. “Something could have happened. You just never know.
“It felt like if I could get out front on those restarts I’d be fine. If I came out second or third after a lap or two, it took me a long time to get good enough to pass those guys. I knew I had to go, I knew I had to make it happen.”
Brad Keselowski finished second with Kevin Harvick, Ryan Blaney and Kyle Busch rounded out the top five.
“We caught a couple breaks there on those restarts and made the most of them,” Keselowski said.  “That was good. We had a really great Freightliner Elite Support Ford just kept getting caught in adversity there. We worked our way through it. It stinks we finished second and still lost points because we didn’t get those stage points. All in all we had a really fast Ford and have a lot to be proud of. We will move on to the next week.” READ FULL STORY
