Joe Gibbs Racing simply dominated much of today’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Tums Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway and as the race neared conclusion it appeared that three teams would earn a finish in the top ten and at least one would certainly have the opportunity over the final laps to race for the famed grandfather clock trophy.
It was a strong night for Joe Gibbs Racing at Charlotte Motor Speedway with Kyle Busch earning an impressive second-place finish in the Bank of America 500, while Denny Hamlin crossed the finish line in ninth, and Joey Logano took the checkered flag in 12th.
Kyle Busch led Joe Gibbs Racing with an 11th-place finish in today’s Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, while Joey Logano was 14th and a potential top-five run by Denny Hamlin would end in disappointment when he came up just short on fuel with two laps remaining.
