Martin Truex Jr. finishes 8th at Atlanta
Mar 5, 2017
Truex had adversity of his own. He had transmission difficulties that required him to be pushed from his pit box after each stop late in the race. Luckily, they did not affect him on restarts. He lined up eighth when the final green flag waved and maintained that position until the checkers waved. This is Truexs 20th top-15 in his last 21 races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks.
