Martin Truex Jr. is starting the second round of the playoffs like he did the first round.
Truex, who won the playoff-opening race at Chicago, sprinted away on a two-lap restart to win at Charlotte on Sunday. The win in the first race of the second round means Truex is guaranteed to be one of the eight drivers alive for the title in the third round of the playoffs.
Kyle Busch, who caused multiple cautions during the race after he first hit the wall, was tended to by medical personnel after the race. After getting out of his car Busch laid down on the infield and had an ice bag on his chest.
