In the Camping World Truck Series, Dollar General will return for 10 races with KBM. The #18 truck will be driven by Busch.
The start of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup was delayed thanks to rain that forced the running of the Geico 400 at Chicagoland Speedway to today. When it was over Joey Logano would lead Joe Gibbs Racing with a 17th-place finish, while Kyle Busch would come up just short on fuel to finish 22nd and two separate tire issues would relegate Hamlin to a 31st-place finish.
It was a wild night of racing at Richmond International Raceway with several teams battling in their final chance to earn a spot in The Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. When the Wonderful Pistachios 400 was over it was Denny Hamlin who had secured his place in NASCAR’s 10-race playoff with a ninth-place finish. Kyle Busch, who entered the night already secure in his place in the Chase, finished the night in the sixth position, while an engine failure left Joey Logano in 35th.
Denny Hamlin led Joe Gibbs Racing with an eighth-place finish in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series AdvoCare 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway this afternoon. Teammates Kyle Busch and Joey Logano would finish 23rd and 24th respectively on a rare Tuesday race following two days of heavy rains from Tropical Storm Lee that forced a postponement from Sunday night’s scheduled running.
