2017-10-08 Martin Truex Jr. started 17th and drove his way to first for his sixth win of the season in Sunday's Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway to advance to the Round of 8.

Kurt Busch and Kyle Larson made contact with two laps to go, forcing the green-white-checkered finish

Truex’s Furniture Row Racing No. 78 Toyota led 91 of 337 laps to win the Bank of America 500, the fourth of 10 playoff races for the series. Truex survived a pair of late-race restarts and an overtime finish to secure his sixth victory of the season, his second at the 1.5-mile track and the 13th of his Monster Energy Series career.

"It was tough out there today, the car was a handful," Truex said after climbing out of his car at the start-finish line. "Man, just thanks to my guys. We kept digging. The pit crew was flawless. They got us track position, and we were able to keep it. Just a never give-up attitude with these guys. ... At this time of year you want to click on all cylinders, and we just did everything right."

Rounding out the top 10 were: Chase Elliott, Kevin Harvick, Hamlin and Jamie McMurray, Daniel Suarez, Jimmie Johnson, Ryan Blaney, Kasey Kahne and Larson.

Kyle Busch got overheated in his race car after a tough day - he hit the wall at least three times and said he would need oxygen after the race. He laid down on the infield grass after climbing from his car on pit road. Medical personnel put ice on his chest and later brought a stretcher. Team owner Joe Gibbs also checked on him. Busch later was taken by ambulance to the infield care center.
