Chase for the Sprint Cup
Furniture Row Racing’s Martin Truex Jr. mathematically clinched a Chase for the Sprint Cup playoff berth despite a poor showing in Watkins Glen on Sunday.
Martin Truex Jr. led the most laps for the fourth straight race, only this time he was in front on the one that mattered most, breaking through Sunday at Pocono Raceway for his first Sprint Cup victory since 2013.

Less than a decade removed from a championship in NASCAR’s top series, Kurt Busch is an underdog now.
