SPARTA, Ky. — Martin Truex Jr. put on a clinic in the Quaker State 400, leading the most laps and sweeping the stages, but had to out-duel the field in overtime to win for the third time this season at Kentucky Speedway.

Restarting in overtime, Kyle Larson shoved Truex out ahead of the field and a multi-car wreck in Turn 4 coming to the white flag ended the race under caution, rendering the victory to Truex.

It’s his 10th victory in 423 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series career starts.

Larson finished runner-up, followed by Chase Elliott on the bottom step of the podium.

Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch rounded out the top-five.

Erik Jones, Jamie McMurray, Joey Logano, Kevin Harvick and Ryan Blaney rounded out the top-10.
