Truex Grabs Important Stage Points in 13th-Place Showing at Texas

  • Start: 2nd
  • Stage one: 5th
  • Stage two: 2nd
  • Finish: 13th
  • Driver standings: 7th (179 points, -49 behind)
  • This was Truex’s first time racing in a NASCAR Xfinity Series car at Texas Motor Speedway since 2015, before the repave.
  • Ryan Truex: “We finished 13th, but more importantly got a lot of stage points. So it was a good points day, we wanted a better finish but I’m glad we could get our Bar Harbor Chevy up front and finish second in stage two and get a lot of points. We’ve got some momentum going into Bristol and look forward to hopefully having a top-10 or top-five (finish) there and maybe knock it into victory lane.”
