Martin Truex Jr. was finally able to seal the deal Sunday. For the fourth consecutive race, Truex led the most laps, but unlike the previous three races Truex led the most important lap, the final one, and scored the victory in the NASCAR Sprint Cup series Axalta We Paint Winners 400 at Pocono Raceway.
“Well we finally got it,” an emotional Truex said in Victory Lane. “That is all I can say we finally got it. We have had a good run. We have had a great season. We have had everything it has taken to win races we just hadn’t got it done yet. “
It was the first win for Truex since Sonoma in 2013 and the third of his career. Kevin Harvick was second, Jimmie Johnson third with Joey Logano and polesitter Kurt Busch fourth and fifth respectively. The win was a popular one for the single car Furniture Row Racing team based in Denver Colorado and for the driver whose girlfriend Sherry Pollex has staged a very public battle with cancer.
“It never gets any better than this,” Truex said.MORE>>>
