Martin Truex Jr., Kyle Busch 1-2 in NASCAR Cup points after Darlington

Kyle Busch says he went 'old school' as he conserved his tires to finish second at the Bojangles' Southern 500.

Martin Truex Jr. continues to maintain a commanding lead in the NASCAR Cup standings.

Truex, who won both stages of Sunday’s Bojangles’ Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway, has a 107-point lead over Kyle Busch.

In so doing, Truex clinches the NASCAR Cup regular-season title.

Kyle Larson is third (-116 points) followed by Kevin Harvick (-133) and Sunday’s race winner, Denny Hamlin, is fifth in the standings (-190).

Just one race remains in the 26-race regular season: this Saturday at Richmond Raceway.
