"It just shows how much this stuff means to us".
Truex was an unwitting participant in one of the biggest cheating scandals in NASCAR history.
Among the Xfinity Series regulars vying for the championship, the big victor was Ryan Reed, whose 12th-place finish put him one point ahead of Brendan Gaughan to advance to the semifinal round of eight. As the deception unraveled, Truex was kicked out of the playoffs and MWR received crippling sanctions. The other two races ended in runner-up finishes. "We'll be fine. We'll work hard tomorrow in race trim and get this Auto-Owners Insurance Toyota ready to roll on Sunday". "I didn't know I was going to be here this long, all these years".
Stone had her first ride in a race vehicle with NASCAR driver Neil "Soapy" Castles, worked the first race ever that had overhead lighting, befriended many drivers like Dale Earnhardt Sr. and Richard Petty and watched as multiple movies and shows were filmed at the raceway like Days of Thunder, Talladega Nights, and American Idol.
Charlotte Motor Speedway held its first race in 1960 and it is a 1.5-mile track that is banked at 24 degrees in the turns and five degrees on the straightaways.

He was lucky that Furniture Row Racing had an opening.

Winning at Charlotte Motor Speedway is often special for drivers as they can celebrate with their family. I felt like I had a vehicle to win.
It was not easy at first. Hornish didn't lead any laps, but he was a fixture in the Top-5 for the full 300-miles of action.
Kesneth is one of 11 former Charlotte winners in the field, seven of which are still alive in the NASCAR playoffs. Team owner Joe Gibbs also checked on him.
"I felt like we've been better than (Truex) the past two weeks", Larson said. "It definitely gave me a mental stamp of approval that I can do it. ..."
"That's about where we were going to run, second or third", Harvick said, adding that his Stewart Haas Racing crew had a solid day overall. Blaney won the first Charlotte race of the season in this series, leading 107 laps en route to the victory, followed by Kevin Harvick. "Chemo Monday, victory lane Sunday". But I also understand that the man next to me, if he wants to do something different, that's his right.
"We still have a lot to detail out because there's so much difference on our cars then what we've ever raced before and we're still progressing". "It's awesome to be a part of it". Every time I turned that steering wheel, I had to be ideal. I might not agree with everything somebody does, but it's their right to have that opportunity to do that.
