Hey folks! Here's my take on the Richmond weekend. The Trucks were off this time.
Saturday was the Xfinity race. Dale Earnhardt, Jr. won with 128 laps led, followed by Ty Dillon, Elliott Sadler, Daniel Suarez and Austin Dillon. Rounding out the top-10 were Cole Custer, Brendan Gaughan, Blake Koch, Brad Keselowski and rookie Brennan Poole.
Sunday was the Cup race. Carl Edwards won with 151 laps led, followed by Kyle Busch with78 laps led, Jimmie Johnson with 44 laps led, Kasey Kahne and polesitter Kevin Harvick with 63 laps led. Rounding out the top-10 were Denny Hamlin with 1 lap led, Matt Kenseth with 2 laps led, Joey Logano, Martin Truex, Jr. and Kurt Busch with 55 laps led. Brad Keselowski led 6 laps and was 11th. No one crashed out this time.
Come back for my Talladega post.
