Chase Elliott at Watkins Glen International

Martin Truex Jr., who started fourth in the 90-lap race around the 2.45-mile natural terrain course, is chasing his third straight road course victory.

Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver Kyle Busch (18) during the Go Bowling at The Glen at Watkins Glen International. "I could catch him, but just trying to get close I would get loose". Not a bad escort to Victory Lane. Stewart, with eight career road course wins, won three straight from 2004-05.

Elliott could have added that the last three victories for the No. 9 vehicle have come at Watkins Glen - the previous two by road course ace Marcos Ambrose in 2011 and 2012.

"I just tried all I could to chase him down, and I got there with plenty of time", Truex said.

Elliott sprinted away from Truex after Truex bobbled in the bus stop on the penultimate lap. We ran out of gas on the last lap anyway, so I guess it wouldn't have mattered.

"I truly believe that to be fast at the racetrack, you need to have a fast auto out of the hauler, " Suarez said.

The US and China have been trying to restart high-level talks that broke off after Trump followed through on his tariff threats. The tariffs will come into effect simultaneously with the U.S. ones, at 12:01 pm in Beijing , according to the statements.

Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin began side-by-side again on the restart after the first stage. The race strategy by crew chief Cole Pearn and the over-the-wall pit crew performance were equally impressive.

"Last year we had a lug nut get stuck in the caliper".

Elliott won the race's second stage and brought the sellout crowd to its feet with a pass of Busch.

"You do what you can do, " said Keselowski, a three-time runner-up at The Glen, "if it takes strategy to win, you play strategy".

Busch's day was ruined when Matt DiBenedetto brought out a caution just past the midpoint of the race. "Every year we come here, we have a fast auto and fail to execute, whether that's just called bad luck or whatever".

That would put the storm on a virtual collision course with Kilauea Volcano , situated on the southern portion of the island. CNN meteorologist Haley Brink said it was too early to tell if the hurricane would trigger an eruption of Kilauea.

AJ Allmendinger drove the No. 23 to a second-place finish Saturday in the Xfinity race at The Glen. He lasted less than three laps on Sunday after sliding off course and then heading to the garage with a broken radiator, his day done.

Not so fast, says Cup points leader Kyle Busch, who said he would keep Bell right where he is for the time being if he were the owner of the team.

The start of the 2018 race season is expecting another stellar year of tickets sales, as WGI President Michael Printup said he expects to sell-out seating for the fourth year in a row.

UP NEXT: Consumers Energy 400 at Michigan International Speedway on August 12.

But it was hard to escape the feeling that NASCAR views Elliott's win Sunday as a breakthrough of sorts for the sport in addition to one for Elliott.
