Kurt Busch has spent time this year in a Delaware courtroom, then on NASCAR’s sidelines as he served a three-race suspension for an alleged domestic assault on a former girlfriend. Now he has made a trip to Victory Lane, where Busch hoped his victory Sunday at Richmond International Raceway will help him close one of the messiest chapters of his volatile career. ”Standing on the truth the whole time, that gave me the feeling of when I do get back to the car, it’s going to be easy to focus, and I think I’ve shown that,” said Busch, who still has a no-contact order against him that was issued in February by a Delaware Family Court judge. The Stewart-Haas Racing driver led a career-best 291 of the 400 laps on the 0.75-mile oval, outrunning teammate Kevin Harvick over the final dozen laps to end a 35-race winless streak.

Weather disrupted NASCAR’s top series for a second consecutive week when Saturday night’s Sprint Cup Series race was postponed because of persistent rain at Richmond International Raceway. NASCAR rescheduled the event for Sunday at 1 p.m. It’s the first time this season the series has been unable to race because of rain, but completing last Sunday’s race at Bristol Motor Speedway was a challenge. Rain caused nearly a 90-minute delay Sunday at Bristol Motor Speedway, and the race was stopped for a four-hour rain delay not long after it finally began. Denny Hamlin, who grew up 20 minutes from the speedway in Chesterfield, will start second in his attempt to complete a nearly perfect weekend.

NASCAR says three pit road crew members were taken to a hospital after a fire broke out on pit road Friday night during the Xfinity Series race at Richmond International Raceway. Two of the crew members were working in Brendan Gaughan’s pit, where the fire erupted, and one was in Eric McClure’s pit. Television replays showed a huge ball of flame that appeared to engulf at least one crew member in Gaughan’s pit. NASCAR identified the three injured as Gaughan’s rear tire changer, Anthony O’Brien, and fueler, Josh Wittman, and Clifford Turner, a crew member from McClure’s team.

Denny Hamlin returned from last week’s injury-shortened weekend and led almost from start to finish Friday night to win the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Richmond International Raceway. He relinquished the lead for one lap to Brian Scott during a series of green-flag pit stops, and to Elliott Sadler during another green flag stop late in the race, but both times regained the lead on the following lap. You don’t get these cars often.” The victory was Hamlin’s 12th in the series and third at Richmond. Following up on Kyle Busch’s wire-to-wire victory for Joe Gibbs Racing in the series last September, the JGR teams have led 498 of the last 500 laps run in the series at RIR.

Joey Logano won the pole position Friday night for the NASCAR Sprint Cup race Saturday night at Richmond International Raceway. The Daytona 500 winner turned a fast lap at 127.071 mph in the third round on the 0.75-mile oval. He easily edged Denny Hamlin for the top spot, with Kurt Busch and A.J. Allmendinger starting in the second row. Hamlin’s best lap in the final round came at 126.796 mph. The pole is the series-high third of the season for Logano in nine races.

Clint Bowyer is having a terrible year. Neither driver believes they’ve turned a corner, but both believe they can be competitive Saturday night at Richmond International Raceway. Because the current NASCAR rules package both are struggling with doesn’t necessarily dictate their fate at Richmond, another short track where driver ability can still trump aerodynamics, horsepower and ill-handling race cars. ”It just seems like this package that we keep migrating to with our sport, it just kind of keeps painting you in a corner of you are only as good as your equipment,” Bowyer said Friday at Richmond.
