Neal Makes it Two Out of Two

Truex took his third win of the year as he showed the way in his Chevrolet, Reed Sorenson the best of the rest, finishing second in his Dodge. Jamie McMurray, Dale Jarrett and Nextel Cup points leader Jimmie Johnson rounded out the top five.

Truex led most of the second half of the race as other cars struggled with handling problems, his win moving him up into third in the points standings.

After looking like contending for the win, Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch both finished well down the order after they collided coming off turn four just before lap 150. Busch retired soon after, while Harvick limped home to finish 29th after making several pit stops to repair damage.

Points leader Carl Edwards also had a bad day, retiring with engine problems just over ten laps before the end, his lead dropping to just 74 points over second place finisher Sorenson.
