Kevin Harvick wins pole at Richmond Raceway

Kevin Harvick wins pole at Richmond Raceway

MTJ ended up leading a race-high 186 laps, helping Toyota maintain its dominance in Virginia's capital city.

"The consensus at Richmond is, of course, just trying to get your vehicle to turn, but also having really good forward bite", Busch said.

"I was struggling the last 40 laps; had no front turn", Truex said. Three weeks in a row I felt like we had a auto that could win the race and we haven't won. Absolutely", he said. "You can go through the whole beginning stretch of the season - we've had a really good stretch to the beginning of this season and unfortunately we're coming up to one of my most favorite race tracks in the world, Talladega, in a couple weeks, that can certainly end that momentum at any particular moment and knock you down off your pedestal or whatever you want to call it.

Where the short tracks are concerned, Kevin Harvick and his No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing team appear to have turned a corner. It's the fifth stage victory of the season for Busch, who is trying for his third straight victory on the 0.75-mile, D-shaped oval.

Busch said Richmond is "getting a little trickier" due to the combination of its aging race surface and the current Cup auto.

More is yet to happen in this season-We have Saturdays Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond Raceway, and the odds of Busch maintaining this level seem low.

Elon Musk Tweets Out Another Tesla Forecast in Midst of SEC Talks
In August 2018, the US SEC filed a lawsuit against Mr Musk after he tweeted that he was considering taking the company private. Securities and Exchange Commission to argue he was in contempt of a settlement reached with the regulator past year .

The Busch Pole Award was Harvick's third at Richmond, his second of the season and the 27th of his career, setting up a showdown with the Joe Gibbs Racing and Team Penske cars that have monopolized Victory Lane in the first eight Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series events of the season.

"Sometimes in pro sports, you know, you get on a roll, things go well", Gibbs said. They include the cars of local favorite Denny Hamlin, a three-time victor on the 0.75-mile oval, Chase Elliott and Matt Tifft.

As a result, NASCAR disqualified their qualifying speeds, sending them to the rear of the field, disallowed their pit stall selections and ejected one engineer from each team for the race. They were those of seven-time series champion Jimmie Johnson, Aric Almirola, Erik Jones, Daniel Suarez and Joey Gase.

With the series off next weekend for Easter, Larson is looking forward to the break. We lost the lead there on a pit stop. "A decent green-flag cycle got us up". Busch has finished in the top 10 in each of his last 10 races.

However, he'll likely wonder what might have been, after coming up a few feet and a lap or two short of another Cup Series victory on Saturday under the Richmond floodlights.
