Winners and losers at Darlington Raceway
A look at winners and losers from Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race at Darlington Raceway:
William Byron -- Racing in the top 10 late in the race, Byron had an excellent view of the repeated crashing in front of him and avoided the incidents to take the win, his series-high third of the year. He led only seven laps.
Kevin Harvick -- Harvick also benefitted from the calamities at the front of the pack, inheriting second place after other contenders fell by the wayside.
Brad Keselowski -- Keselowski didn’t have one of the day’s best cars, but he took advantage of every opportunity and held on to get a fourth place.
Harrison Burton -- Burton had one of the best runs of his two-year stint in the Wood Brothers No. 21. His sixth-place finish was his first top 10 of the year.
Martin Truex Jr. -- Truex led the most laps, but his car was crumpled in a crash, and he finished 31st.
Ross Chastain -- He led 93 laps and had a shot at winning, but aggressive driving left him with a 29th-place finish and more complaints about his racing style.
Daniel Suarez -- His car was among several caught up in a big crash at the start of the final stage. He finished 34th.
