Friday's auto racing roundup: Harvick wins pole at Richmond

Friday's auto racing roundup: Harvick wins pole at Richmond

It was the season's first race under the lights, the first win of the season for Martin Truex, Junior and the first career win on a short track for Truex.

"I don't know if there's any advantage for sure, but I certainly feel like I know what I need out of the auto to be successful here", Hamlin said Friday.

The Daytona 500 victor has plenty of reason to feel good heading into the weekend. He won from the pole a year ago.

Harvick was sixth in the first round, second to Kyle Busch in the second round and first with the pole at stake.

Despite a solid starting spot, Logano was not a fan of the format.

"For me, all three rounds went really good and we had a good race practice", Harvick said. The new post-race inspection process was also created to deal with potential violations more promptly, avoiding any midweek news that might cloud the previous week's results or the build-up to the following week's event.

Kevin Harvick speaks to the media after winning the pole for Saturday's NASCAR Cup auto race at Richmond International Raceway in Richmond, Va., Friday, April 12, 2019.

In addition to that, the report also suggests that iOS 13 may come with features like new multiwindow support for apps for iPad. However, since shaking an iPad looks a bit weird, iOS 13 is said to bring a new standard undo option for iPad users.

"You look at a couple of races like last week".

"We're just really excited", Truex said. "I was just real tight that last run. We didn't have speed tonight but the weeks that we've got speed we still run into issues so I hate the start to the season I've had but hopefully this break to the season came at a good time and we can regroup and try to come back better with some better luck".

Truex led a race-high 186 laps and regained the lead for the last time after green-flag pit stops that started with just more than 80 laps to go.

Busch admits that luck has been on his side at times this season, as well as momentum. The short track win-everybody kept asking me when it was going to happen.

Such achievements, he said, are not his focus, but nonetheless special. "I've always loved coming here, and the short-track win, everybody kept asking me when it was going to happen, and tonight we didn't have the best auto".

So would keeping the momentum going.

Kyle Busch finished eighth to push his top-10 streak to 11 races.

"There's no question there's momentum". "It is kind of a double-edged sword, running that low line, because you go to the bottom but you can't get the drive to clear someone ... and getting to the outside is pretty tough". "I think you actually kind of lose a little bit of the drama of a auto going back out, and can that vehicle knock the vehicle that is on the bubble out".
