Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 Recap
The Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 started with Denny Hamlin on the pole. Hamlin had the lead for the first few laps until Kyle Larson snatched the lead. A competition caution because of Kevin Harvick caused him to lose his 4th place spot. Outside of that, Kyle Larson kept the lead and ended up smoking the rest of the field in the first stage for the win.
Stage 2 was the only time there was a wreck and this was because of Kyle Busch spinning his tires and causing the field to slow down. During this slow down, Kurt Busch was struck by Denny Hamlin, which sent him into the wall. That would be the end of the day for him. In addition, Brad Keselowski had his nose damaged by Martin Truex Jr. sliding in front of him and this damage ended up slowing down the No. 2 car a great deal. While this was going on, Kyle Larson took his lead to 10 seconds and won stage 2.
In the final stage of the race, Ryan Blaney was able to overtake Kyle Larson during the pit stop. It was the first time someone took the lead over Larson all day, but it would last long. Larson was able to retake the lead, but he wouldn't get out to a big lead as Ryan Blaney stayed on his tail. Blaney got closer and closer before finally taking the lead with eight laps to go, securing his first win of the NASCAR Cup Series.
