Several NASCAR teams fail pre-race inspection

After holding off Bowyer's inside thrusts, Truex won by not allowing Logano to get by him on the outside in the final moments.

Kevin Harvick became the first repeat pole victor in 2019 when he captured the unofficial top spot for Saturday night's Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond Raceway.

"I had no front turn (and) was just real, real tight that last run". I just had to hold him off. "Being out front was important tonight".

Joe Gibbs Racing drivers have won five of the first eight races of the season with Kyle Busch winning three and Denny Hamlin two.

With five laps to go, Logano made his way around Truex to take the lead for the first time.

With the No. 4 of SHR teammate Harvick closing, a move by Joey Logano forced Bowyer's hand to give up second place to fall into third. The last time an apparent race victor in NASCAR's top division was disqualified came on April 17, 1960, when Emanuel Zervakis' victory at Wilson (N.C.) Speedway was thrown out because of an oversized fuel tank on his No. 85 Chevrolet.

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

Logano held on for second.

Clint Bowyer came in third, pole victor Kevin Harvick finished fourth with Denny Hamlin completing the Top 5. Hamlin finished fifth in Saturday night's race. I was faster on a long run than him, but by the time you get to him, your stuff is pretty wore out. Fun race, just gosh. All three cars passed on their third attempt.

"That's a little frustrating, but when you're frustrated with second, that's a good sign about where your team's at".

The stage for the finish was set when the leaderboard got shuffled beginning on Lap 318 when the cars running up front began pitting under a green flag.

Busch is trying to win his third straight race at Richmond. Joey Logano finished.178 seconds behind the race victor, as Gibbs and Team Penske maintained their stranglehold on the premier division. "But I also know in pro sports it's very hard to stay up there". "I think you actually kind of lose a little bit of the drama of a auto going back out, and can that vehicle knock the vehicle that is on the bubble out".

Failing inspection twice were the cars of Chase Elliott (who qualified seventh), Denny Hamlin (18th), and Matt Tifft (20th). They include local favorite Denny Hamlin, a three-time victor on the 0.75-mile oval, Chase Elliott and Matt Tifft.

Kyle Larson's slow start to the season continued, giving him an early night.

On Lap 127, Larson had a tire go down and hit the Turn 1 wall to bring out a caution. He is well prepared this year as he said that they have been working well with Adam Stevens since 2015 and he is confident that he will achieve. "We've had decent speed". "Everyone at JGR is doing a great job...we've been chipping away at it, so hopefully we can get better from here on out". Just having a blast this year. Cup and Xfinity racers are back at it again in two weeks at Talladega Speedway.

Kurt Busch qualified third at 123.870 miles per hour, a dramatic improvement over his 2019 average starting position of 20.1.

Time of Race: 3 housrs, 0 minutes, 16 seconds.

Lead Changes: 8 among 5 drivers.

Harvick turned a fast lap at 124.298 miles per hour Friday for the 27th pole of his career and his second this season.
