Kyle Busch finished second to Austin Dillon in Sunday night's Cola-Cola 600 in Charlotte and evidently did not want to discuss the victor in his post-race press conference. "I thought I'd saved enough early where I could attack at the end, but I tried to wait as long as possible".
Jake Marisnick hit a tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning for Houston's fourth homer of the game, lifting the Astros to a 7-6 victory over the Detroit Tigers Thursday night.
Dillon celebrated by diving head first into the infield grass.
I did all that I could from that point and just came up a little bit short, he said. Fellow Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers Kevin Harvick and Austin Dillon were second and third, respectively.
Larson said he got loose in Turn 3 to end his race. "It's so special to see that 3 in winner's circle again".
Third stage: Denny Hamlin won the third stage, even as Truex continued to dominate, leading 195 of the first 300 laps.
"All in all, it was a great night", Truex Jr. said.
"I didn't want to put just anyone in the No. 3 vehicle".
There are others who'd like to see the sentimental favorite win this one.
When asked a question about Dillon's ability to close out the win in a race that stretched into Monday morning due to a near two-hour rain delay, Busch became quickly irritated, dropped something, appeared to pick his nose and sped through a terse answer.More news: President Trump to withdraw US from Paris accord, report says

Raikkonen rarely says much, yet the quietest man in the series felt the need to speak up after being on the receiving end of what seemed like clear team orders favoring Vettel.
But fuel-mileage, that's another thing.
Stock car's governing body added a layer of traction compound called JP1 to the top groove of CMS this week in an effort to promote more passing at the Coca-Cola 600 coming up on Sunday.
Kyle Larson, who entered the race as the points leader, received heavy damage after blowing a right-front tyre on lap 291 and colliding with the wall.
"The pavement here is different than anywhere else we go".
It's the place where he'd finish running an Xfinity race and return to the Campus Connection apartment complex across the street and drink beer with his buddies until late into the night. Third year in a row we led the most laps. He decided that number would be run in the Cup series only by a driver who either was a Childress or an Earnhardt.
After Jeffrey Earnhardt experienced issues that led to oil and a part dumping on the track, Chase Elliott appeared to run over it and his vehicle caught fire.
There hasn't been a better driver/crew chief combination in the past 15 years than Johnson and Chad Knaus, especially at Charlotte, leading many to believe that if they couldn't make it to the finish, neither would Dillon.
