RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — The Latest on the NASCAR Cup Series playoff race at Richmond Raceway (all times local):
Martin Truex Jr. is creating a mirror image of Joey Logano’s spring performance at Richmond Raceway.
The defending series champion and points leader has padded his lead by winning the first two stages of Saturday night’s NASCAR Cup Series race. Logano swept the first two stages in the spring, both run without an on-track caution, and that’s where Truex hopes to part company. Logano was unable to close the deal, winding up fourth.
Pole-sitter Kevin Harvick finished the stage second, followed by Aric Almirola, Chase Elliott and Brad Keselowski.
Keselowski is seeking his fourth consecutive victory in the series.
