Speaking at Richmond International Raceway before Sunday's Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race, France compared the challenge sports are facing to the one retailers are facing because of the popularity of online shopping. "PESPT000009687-topic.html" class="local_link" >Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Kevin Harvick rounding out the top five. Kurt Busch, Aric Almirola and Martin Truex Jr completed the top 10.

Points leader Kyle Larson placed finished 14th.

Penalties proved costly for Hendrick Motorsports on Sunday.

So a little birdie told me Dale Earnhardt Jr. might be retiring. Although he was 12th after the second segment, the No. 48 restarted 24th.

No. 5 Kasey Kahne was penalized for speeding on pit road and was sent to the rear of the lead-lap cars. Kenseth led the first 163 laps before the Team Penske driver overtook him.

The eighth caution came out with 33 laps remaining when Matt Kenseth cut a tire after making contact with No. 24 Chase Elliott. Seven laps later, as Johnson was barreling down the backstretch, he slid up into Earnhardt to trigger Caution 6. "We were just missing some of the speed from the 2 (Keselowski) and the 22 (Logano)".

When will Joe Gibbs Racing win again?: The dominant team of 2016 has gone win less through 2017 so far, and their three winning drivers (Kyle Busch, Matt Kenseth, and Denny Hamlin) have a total of 9 wins at the Virginia track.

"It's really not uncommon to see three, four or five of your top drivers deciding to exit around the same time", France said. Earnhardt finished 30th, while Johnson finished 11th. That seems to be a pattern with Kyle Busch this season, dominate early and then get snake bitten in the end.

But as he was following eventual race victor Joey Logano into the pits on lap 378, Busch swerved to get as low as he could around the orange box but could not get all four tires below. Newman had cycled into the lead by gambling and staying out while others pitted, and then catching a break when the Johnson-Earnhardt incident brought out, for Newman, a very timely caution. Kyle Busch was first out of the pits followed by Larson, Harvick and Truex.

The commitment line violation forced Busch to drop to the rear of the field on the ensuing restart.

The action really heated up with 30 laps to go, when the Team Penske tandem of Brad Keselowski and Logano stayed out on the track and the rest of the field pitted. The gamble paid off when a caution came out just 10 laps later because of some trouble with Ryan Blaney's vehicle. We had the lead when the caution came out there. I don't think we would have been able to win the race and hold off Kyle (Busch) if it had stayed green. [But the final] caution came out. We won with a vehicle that may not have been a winning auto, so that's something to be very proud of as a team. "I wish was the Richmond 410, I'd have taken 500 but it was a really good effort". I think that there's more to it than just people not watching NASCAR.

"He was on his way to catch me". It's the fight that I had when I was in the Xfinity Series and won a race from two laps down in Kansas. That was all I had inside the vehicle, and I burned them up early trying to go. "But now, I am also the advocate for what NASCAR fans, teams and drivers alike have termed 'Racing Perfection'". "We executed under pressure today and brought a auto home that was a fifth-to-10th-place vehicle to Victory Lane".

There were 18 lead changes, several on the track under the green flag.
