Outside of the Round of 8, Martin Truex, Jr. leads the "Best of the Rest" after finishing third on Sunday. He is 31 points ahead of Brad Keselowski, who uncharacteristically struggled on Sunday on his way to a 14th-place finish. Keselowski had dominated the race at Texas last fall only to lose to Johnson in the closing laps.
Letter of the Race: Sunday's AAA Texas 500 was brought to you by the Letter "W," for "Waiting." The time required to get the track surface dry at Texas Motor Speedway for Sunday's race was just plain unacceptable. It bites. It rained for 25 minutes but the oval required over five hours to dry. Inpatient fans, or those who had long drives home in order to work today were unable to wait out the delays. - Phil Allaway
Quotes to Remember: AAA Texas 500
"Well, it was obvious earlier today we didn't know if it was going to rain or if it wasn't. That kind of threw a loop into things. The track was quite a bit different today for probably the first 20, 25 laps. That first run was really hard on tires. A lot of guys were struggling at the competition caution. Honestly, aside from that, the track was real similar to practice, I felt like. We struggled with the same issues. Seemed like everybody was having similar issues as practice, just being loose. Interesting that the tires were so much different the last time around. But, all in all, it was a good day for us. We battled hard. We fought. Had a great racecar at times. Looked like we were in position to have a shot at winning. Then, the last pit stop, we had a little bit of an issue. Then, inside restarts after that are just really tough. The leader on the outside has a big advantage. I guess, all in all, happy with third, but wish we could have won tonight." - Martin Truex, Jr., finished third
"Our Busch Beer Chevy was off. We were tight, we were loose, and we were kind of all over the place. We could take off OK, but we would fall way off at the end of a run. I just want to apologize to the No. 3 (Austin Dillon). He kind of came up there and he slid in front of me and got loose, and when he checked up I hit him again. That was not anything I wanted to see. All in all, everybody battled and did all they could, and we just didn't have a fast enough car." - Kevin Harvick, finished sixth
