Martin Truex Jr. claimed victory in the Gander RV 400 Monday (May 6) at Dover International Speedway.


Leading the final 53 laps, the Joe Gibbs Racing driver took his second victory of the 2019 season.

“We’re starting to not only make our cars a little faster, show up better on Fridays, we’re a step ahead on the weekend,” Truex said. “The pit crew is really doing a great job.”

Alex Bowman, who led 16 laps, finished in second-place for the second week in a row.

Kyle Larson, Kevin Harvick and pole sitter Chase Elliott rounded out the top-five finishers.
