Martin Truex Jr. Wins at Dover

Martin Truex Jr wins in Dover
In his first win, Martin Truex Jr. had a dominating performance for DEI, leading or running up front all day long just about at the Monster Mile in Dover, Delaware. This is the second week in a row that we have a first time winner, last weeks was Casey Mears in Charlotte. Jimmie Johnson was running in second until he wore out a tire trying to chase Truex down, he ended up in 15th.

On lap 273, Nascar parked Kurt Busch after he pulled up beside Tony Stewart car, while the crew was working on it, to tell him what he thought about their mishap while racing, he peeled out and got into the side of Stewart’s car while in pit lane. I’m sure some fines are going to be handed out to ol’ Kurt, and I bet we hear more about it from Tony Stewart. We’ll call those a couple predictions for the coming week.

Everybody should be happy now that we have a COT race won by someone other than a Hendrick’s driver. Truex has run pretty good this year and it was only a matter of time before his first win came. Glad to see a couple deserving drivers win over the past couple of weeks.
