Harvick wins pole at Richmond Raceway

16 April 2019

"It was really just more congestion", Harvick said.

More is yet to happen in this season-We have Saturdays Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond Raceway, and the odds of Busch maintaining this level seem low.

Cindric had grabbed the lead on a restart with 25 laps to go, but Custer regained the lead five laps later and pulled away for his second victory of the season.

"We really closed on the leaders there at the end". It's his 20th career victory and 17th in the last four seasons.

"It means a lot to finally break through", Truex said in Victory Lane.

This is the third consecutive win for Toyota Racing at Richmond, including the sweep of the 2018 season completed by Busch.

"Showers and t'storms will be a threat mostly in the morning for Richmond", Neudorff writes, "and while I am not ruling out a few stray showers or storms leading up to the start of the Toyota Owners 400, I think the race is mostly dry".

Where the short tracks are concerned, Kevin Harvick and his No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing team appear to have turned a corner.

"We were close, just not close enough", Logano said.

Jones' failed inspection moves Kurt Busch up to the front row to start alongside Harvick in the second position. "I could just roll out, and here it doesn't benefit you to wait so you just roll out and get your lap in".

Failing inspection twice were the cars of Chase Elliott (who qualified seventh), Denny Hamlin (18th), and Matt Tifft (20th).

The Joe Gibbs Racing star has won three times on the 0.75-mile, D-shaped oval and has been coming to the track for much of his life, even long before the Virginia racer became a driver in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.

Contact with Daniel Hemric early in the second stage gave Larson a tire rub and when he got back up to speed after stopping under green, the rub continued and he hit the Turn 1 wall on just the 127th lap of the night.

As a result, NASCAR disqualified their qualifying speeds, sending them to the rear of the field, disallowed their pit stall selections and ejected one engineer from each team for the race. "Tonight we didn't have the best auto, but we've lost some here with the best vehicle. A decent green-flag cycle got us up". The top four finishers in this race will be eligible for the bonus when the series races next at Talladega Superspeedway in two weeks.

Kyle Busch led 101 laps and finished eighth for his ninth straight Top 10 finish to start the season.
