Martin Truex Jr. started round two of the playoffs just as he did round one: with a win. This one came in the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Truex also won at Chicagoland four weeks ago to prove he does not need bonus points in order to advance from round to round. In pre-race coverage, we said he would be a top value and he proved us right.

Martin Truex Jr finished fourth in the Apache Warrior 400 at Dover International Speedway, which completed a sweep of the top five in round one of the playoffs.

Martin Truex Jr. posted a lap of 160.664 mph and won the pole for Sunday’s Apache Warrior 400 at Dover International Speedway.

Truex led a contingent of five Toyota drivers in the top six. Truex improved considerably from his sixth-fastest time in the first practice session. Track position matters at Dover and Truex should be considered a favorite to finish in the top five this week.

Truex won last week at Chicagoland Speedway and that gives him momentum. For that matter, so does the third-place finish he scored this summer on this one-mile track—but fantasy owners should note that was a rare top-five on this course and Truex does not provide any guarantees.

Martin Truex Jr. led 77 laps en route to winning at Chicagoland Speedway. He started the race third.

Truex is on a mission. He wants to show that the bonus points—while nice—are not why he should be considered the top threat to win the playoffs. After today’s performance, it would be hard to argue with him. He now has an automatic berth to round two.

Matt Kenseth and Martin Truex Jr. posted exact times, which ere the single fastest laps in practice for the Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond International Raceway. Their top speed was 120.897 mph.

Kenseth spent more time on track during the session and that might give him a slight advantage over Truex. However, Truex has a knack for managing races that has contributed to his immense points' lead and it is impossible to count him out.

Martin Truex Jr. tried to go further on tires than anyone in the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway at the end of the race and cut a tire with two laps remaining. He finished eighth.

Truex had one of the dominant cars in the closing laps, but when Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch played an alternate strategy, it put the No. 78 team in a box. Truex had little to lose after picking up two bonus points for winning the stages and securing the number one position in the points’ standings. Truex was the final driver to finish on the lead lap.

Martin Truex Jr. dominated the Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway, but fell prey to Kyle Larson on the final lap.

Truex gave Larson the low line on the restart and that proved to be his undoing. Still, he climbed from 13th on the grid and led 57 laps to be one of the top fantasy earners of the day.

Martin Truex Jr. posted a lap of 201.263 mph in the second round of time trials for the Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway and failed to advance to the final 12. He will roll off the grid 13th on Sunday.

This is the first time in the last 16 unrestricted speedway races that he failed to qualify among the top 10. One of the keys to Truex’s success has been his ability to get up front and stay there, so this could significantly impact his fantasy value.
