The NASCAR Cup Series raced to Darlington Raceway on throwback weekend this Sunday, May 9 and Martin Truex Jr. made it a memorable Mother’s Day.
Truex dominated the race to win his third race of the 2021 season. Kyle Larson made a charge at the end but it was not enough, coming up short after closing to within a few car lengths. What more did he need to get over the hump and challenge Truex? Frontstretch’s Bryan Nolen and Adam Cheek discuss. Also on the agenda: was the racing at Darlington Raceway hurt by a move to the sport’s 750-horsepower package?
