The Blaney-Truex conflict was the main plot point going into Richmond. However, there was still a chance that another driver might claim the victory and displace Blaney from that position. Blaney placed 10th, while Truex finished seventh. During the military flyover before the race, Specialist Maya Rodriguez of the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Band sang the national song. After securing the pole position for Richmond, Kyle Larson took the lead at the start.

Stage 1

By driving all 70 of the laps in Stage 1, Ross Chastain dominated. This stage didn’t have a lot of action. On lap three, Tyler Reddick lost control and brought out the caution, but he was still able to continue. Chastain won the stage for the fifth time this year, but he came in 18th overall.

Stage 2

Stage 2 had a few extra activities. Joey Logano claimed the lead 11 laps into the race to start. While attempting to enter pit road, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. also came into touch with Truex. It signaled a difficult period for Truex. The contact wasn’t too bad, thank goodness. Logano ultimately prevailed on the stage. Logano ultimately came in sixth place overall.

Stage 3

At the start of Stage 3, Chastain collided with Kyle Busch, causing both cars to spin out. Truex and Erik Jones also participated. Chastain didn’t please Truex. Denny Hamlin’s crew chief Chris Gabehart also added his two cents. In the end, Harvick passed Logano for the lead late.

Although Buescher was pursuing Harvick, traffic prevented him from taking the lead. In the end, Harvick defeated Bell to win the first two races in a row this season.
