Truex’s Toyota was the dominate car of the day, until the sun broke thru the clouds and Hamlin took the lead on lap 237.  Truex Jr.’s second place finish was enough to move him into second place in the Sprint Cup point standings.  Greg Biffle maintains his first place in point standings 15 points ahead of Truex.
