Martin Truex Jr. has never earned back-to-back wins in his career, but on Saturday, the veteran driver came away with the checkered flag for the second consecutive NASCAR Playoff race.
He edged out Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin and Erik Jones at the Federated Auto Parts 400 at the Richmond Raceway in Richmond, Virginia.
“I don’t even know what to say, I really don’t,” Truex told the NBC broadcast after the race. “I’m speechless.
“We kept plugging away at it, kept plugging away at it, as we always do. We just keep digging and we never quit. Next thing you know I’m catching (Kyle Busch) for the lead. I’m like, ‘Cool, here we go.’ The sweep at Richmond, finally, is awesome.”
