Truex was shooting for his third straight road-course win, but ran out of fuel on the final lap as he was only a few auto lengths behind Elliott, who also ran out of fuel but on the cool down lap. "I'm so thrilled, so emotional, so much relief, working on three years and I hadn't won one". His Joe Gibbs Racing teammates, Erik Jones and Daniel Suarez, rounded out the top-five. During that pitstop, Busch had a problem, and that allowed #9 Chase Elliott to take back the lead on the restart, and Busch had to restart in 26th.

It was Hamlin's 27th career pole in Cup.

Elliott led Truex by 1.1 seconds with 19 laps left, Jones was third over 10 seconds behind and Busch 18 seconds back in eighth in what turned into a two-car struggle. "I love coming to these road courses".

Chase like his Hall of Fame father Bill, got his first win at a Road Course, so is it like father, like son, we will have to wait and see. When Truex bobbled in the chicane on the final lap, Elliott was home free. His streak included three wins each at Watkins Glen and Sonoma.

Truex won at Watkins Glen last summer and in California in June. "That's key. It's impossible. when you get the auto out of the hauler to make that 20th-place vehicle a winning race auto by the end of second practice".

Sunday will be a marathon for NASCAR and the teams because inspection this week was moved to prior to the race.

Denny Hamlin's No. 11 will start from the pole Sunday for NASCAR's Cup road race at Watkins Glen International.

Hamlin traversed the 2.45-mile layout at 125.534 miles per hour Saturday to take the top spot in the No. 11 Toyota, just ahead of Busch.

Chase Elliott will start third in the No. 9 Chevy, followed by Martin Truex Jr. and Kyle Larson.

Logano became the youngest victor in Xfinity Series history by winning his first major NASCAR series race in 2008 in only his third start.

The cars of Paul Menard, who qualified 14th, and Kurt Busch, who qualified 21st, were the only ones to fail inspection. That gave Elliott the lead, which he held until the end.

A hard-charging Martin Truex Jr. came up a little short, finishing second to first-time victor Chase Elliott in Sunday's NASCAR Cup Series road race at Watkins Glen International. Elliott hasn't made a NASCAR national series start since the 2012 Firecracker 400 at Daytona International Speedway.
