Runner Up Finish for Truex at Kentucky Speedway
Runner-Up Finish for Truex at Kentucky Speedway
Truex and his No. 19 crew started from the rear of the field and quickly made his way to familiar territory in the lead spot. “(It was) Just an unbelievable race car. In the end there, just a bit unlucky losing the lead to (Ryan) Blaney on that first restart by a couple thousandths and then again to the 4 (Kevin Harvick) when the caution came out. We were side-by-side. That’s kind of the way these things go sometimes. I’m really proud of the effort. Super-fast race car and feel like we’re back in the game now,” Truex said after the race.
Denny Hamlin finished 12th, Kyle Busch 21st, Erik Jones 22nd and Daniel Suárez earned a 26th-place finish.
