Team Interstate’s Matt Kenseth pulled even with championship rival Jimmie Johnson on Sunday, finishing second in the Goody’s Headache Relief Shot 500 at Martinsville Speedway.

The track is one of Jimmie’s best statistically and one of Matt’s worst. The strong finish puts Matt and Jimmie tied atop the standings with three races to go.

Kyle Busch looked to have one of the strongest cars for much of Sunday’s race, but an ill-handling car during the long, green-flag run that ended the race spoiled the end, resulting in a 15th-place finish.

Jeff Gordon won the race. Kyle sits fifth in points heading into this weekend’s race at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth.

NASCAR Camping World Truck Series: Darrell Wallace Jr. Makes History

Team Interstate’s Darrell Wallace Jr. won Saturday’s Kroger 200, becoming only the second African-American driver to win a NASCAR national series race and the first since 1963.

“I want to be a role model and inspiration to the younger kids and just change the sport as a whole and for the better, and winning helps everything,” Darrell said. “I think that’ll help kind of pave its own way there and hopefully get my name out there even more. That’s what I’ve been trying to do is to get my name out there to keep pushing (and) striving for kids younger than me to get in the sport.”

Darrell is 20 and in his rookie season. He’s under contract with Joe Gibbs Racing and drives the No. 54 ToyotaCare Tundra in a partnership with Kyle Busch Motorsports.

I am torn, we are the Rowdy Nation! But the #18 was a dog that wouldn't hunt at Kansas and now at Martinsville no matter how much Rowdy whipped that dog. Wish Matt, Jason and the #20 JGR crew well, but i'm not happy the best driver in racing has taken junk to the Chase. Rowdy beats Matt everyday and twice on Sunday with the same equipment. Jason is twice the crew chief Rogers is and Rowdy deserved better in this Championship run.
