Winners and losers at Richmond Raceway
A look at winners and losers from Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race at Richmond Raceway:
Kyle Larson – Frustrated several times this season (and again during Sunday’s race by a pit-road incident), Larson responded with his first win of the year.
Josh Berry – Berry spun out early in the race and appeared to be in for a long day, but the circumstances of the closing laps put him in excellent position, and he followed Hendrick Motorsports teammate Kyle Larson to the checkered flag.
Michael McDowell – Gambling on tires near the finish rewarded McDowell with a sixth-place run, his first top 10 of the year. His previous best run was 12th.
Alex Bowman – Bowman finished eighth, scoring his sixth top-10 finish in the season’s seven races.
Austin Cindric -- Cindric was never a factor Sunday and rolled home 28th, a lap down.
AJ Allmendinger -- Allmendinger has had a rough start to the season. He finished a lap behind Sunday in 27th.
Ryan Blaney -- A pair of pit-road miscues damaged Blaney’s chances Sunday. He finished 26th.
