Martin Truex, Jr. picked up his third win of the season Saturday at Dover International Speedway. It is the ninth career win for Truex and car owners Dale Jr. and Teresa Earnhardt.

"At the end of the race, it was the best my car was all day long," Truex said. "Once I got into clean air, it was game over."

The break of the race for Truex came when Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch wrecked each other as Busch was battling Harvick for the lead. The incident took both cars out and allowed Truex to sail to the front of the pack.

"They give these guys faster cars then they have talent," Harvick said. "He's a moron."

It is Truex second consecutive win at Dover.

Rookie Reed Sorenson was second.

"He (Truex) was just too far ahead to catch," commented Sorenson.

Jamie McMurray, Dale Jarrett and Jimmie Johnson complete the top five.

Carl Edwards continues to lead series standings. Reed Sorenson (-74), Martin Truex, Jr. (-120), Clint Bowyer (-140) and Kenny Wallace (-230) complete the top five.
