Three races are completed in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship and Martin Truex, Jr. has won two of them.  Racing at Dover International Speedway, what he considers his "home" track, Truex beat second-place Kyle Busch to the finish line by more than 7 and a half seconds for his second career victory at Dover and his fourth win this year.

Chase Elliott came in third with Brad Keselowski and Matt Kenseth completing the Top Five.  The top nine drivers were all Chase drivers, but four drivers were eliminated from the Chase; Jamie McMurray, Kyle Larson, Chris Buescher and Tony Stewart.
