Kyle Larson backs his vehicle down the track after he spun during the NASCAR Cup series auto race at Richmond Raceway in Richmond, Va., Saturday, April 13, 2019.

Inspections for tonight at Richmond Raceway for the Toyota Owners 400 has seen a slew of cars failing and being sent to the rear.

"I was struggling the last 40 laps", Truex said. I had no front tire and got real tight that last run. I'm just really happy to get our first win with Gibbs. "Being out front was important tonight".

Truex gave Joe Gibbs Racing its sixth victory in nine races this season and won for the first time in his career on tracks shorter than a mile. And with this aero package, you are so aero dependent behind those cars that you get terribly tight.

Logano got past third-place finisher Clint Bowyer in the closing laps and got a strong run off Turn 2 on the final circuit, but just couldn't find a way around Truex through the last two corners. With about 40 to go, Bowyer challenged with what seemed like a faster auto, but Bowyer finally relinquished the second spot to Logano, who also seemed to have the faster vehicle of the top two.

Standing as his first national series start of 2019, nothing can beat track time in an Xfinity auto.

XFINITY SERIES: Cole Custer passed Austin Cindric with 20 laps to go at Richmond Raceway and earned his second victory of the season.

"It means a lot to finally break through", Truex said in Victory Lane.

"For me, all three rounds went really good and we had a good race practice", Harvick said. "It sure was fun behind the wheel". Joey Logano finished.178 seconds behind the race victor, as Gibbs and Team Penske maintained their stranglehold on the premier division.

"It's frustrating", said Bowyer, who scored his fourth straight top-10 result.

Denny Hamlin would love to think he has an advantage when it comes to racing at Richmond Raceway.

"Fun race, but, gosh, two weeks in a row I felt like we had a auto that could win the race, and we haven't won".

"If we can win three in a row here at Richmond and match names like that - the Godfathers of our sport that built our sport to what it is today - would be pretty cool", he said.

Logano held on for second followed by Bowyer, Kevin Harvick and local favorite Denny Hamlin.

Joe Gibbs said he can't explain his team's dominant start to the season, but he's going to enjoy it while it lasts. "Next thing you know I lost my nose down there, and the 22 got to the outside". I think that's where our strength is and we've had some moments in some of these races that we've kind of been knocked off that we've been able to rebound and come back up through. Each of their cars failed inspection Saturday, resulting in their qualifying times being disallowed. They include local favorite Denny Hamlin, a three-time victor on the 0.75-mile oval, Chase Elliott and Matt Tifft. He's the first driver with more than one pole this season.

Four of the top-ten qualifiers failed their attempt through inspection.

"Been a crappy start to the year", Larson said.

"We just battled our way back through the field to somehow come away with a top 10". At the very least, rain will be a threat for the NASCAR Cup Series race at Richmond.

Chase Elliott started the night 10th in points, but ran 15th and has just two top-10s this year.
