Martin Truex Jr. captured his second win on a 1.5-mile oval this season, taking the checkered flag Saturday night in Kansas. The No. 78 team was one of the fastest machines through the weekend but really came alive in the second half of the race. Truex leveraged near perfect handling to fend off all challengers and jump ahead on late restarts to consolidate his lead and win. This second victory puts him second in championship points behind Kyle Larson and gives him momentum when he returns to the scene of his record-setting domination last year.
