Martin Truex Jr. Wins In Wine Country

It’s been a good year for Martin Truex Jr., as he’s successfully put himself in position to win on multiple occasions, yet he hasn’t found a way to get to Victory Lane. That all changed today in Sonoma, California.

Road course savants lead the race throughout the afternoon. Favorites like Marcos Ambrose, Juan Pablo Montoya, and Jimmie Johnson were near the front all afternoon.

Truex Jr. took a commanding lead, however, after a caution in the late stages of the race.

He built up a nine-second lead over Juan Pablo Montoya, as Jeff Gordon battled back from an early pit penalty and got up to third. On the final lap, Montoya ran out of fuel, and some worried Truex Jr. would as well, since he pitted on lap 69 along with Montoya.

Truex’s Toyota pulled out the win, however, as Gordon finished second, Carl Edwards finished third, Kurt Busch compiled another top five in fourth, and Clint Bowyer, last year’s winner, took fifth.

Next week, NASCAR goes back under the Saturday night lights in Kentucky.
