"We had a super-fast vehicle, and that's why we won", Hamlin said.

Before the race went green, Brad Keselowski came down pit road and appeared to have lost power. We tried every way that we could to give it away.

"I don't know, we just lacked a little bit of overall speed tonight". The race, which had only three cautions outside the two stage stoppages, featured 27 lead changes among 13 drivers.

While he hasn't finished in higher than fifth place in any of the five races that have been contested since he earned his second career Daytona 500 victory and his second victory in the race in the last four seasons, Hamlin is clearly in the process of silently and methodically building toward a championship run. He won the season-opening Daytona 500 after he went winless a year ago to end a streak of 12 consecutive seasons getting into Victory Lane. This was his third attempt to sweep the weekend at Texas.

The driver of the #11 Toyota entered the 2019 season having not won a race since he won at Darlington Raceway in September of 2017, meaning his win drought had reached 47 races in length. His career-long winless streak is 65 races since Dover in June 2017.

With 55 laps remaining in the second stage, Elliott held a small advantage over Kyle Busch with Joey Logano in third.

Busch led a race-high 66 laps Sunday but got loose with just over 60 laps remaining while running first and managed to save the No. 18 Toyota from hitting the wall.

On Lap 149, smoke began billowing from Kyle Larson's No. 42 Chevrolet after he tagged the Turn 2 wall and it appeared he dropped fluid on the track as he maneuvered his way down pit road.

Govt hikes petrol price by Rs6 a litre
A statement on QP website showed that premium grade petrol will cost QR 1.80 in April, 25 dirhams more than March. Similarly, light diesel oil price and kerosene oil price will be Rs80.54 and Rs89.31 per litre respectively.

Jimmie Johnson is starting on the NASCAR Cup pole at Texas, where Kyle Busch is going for a tripleheader weekend sweep.

Busch won the Vankor 350 as part of the Gander Outdoors Truck Series on Friday and now is in line for the trifecta - which is when a driver sweeps the truck, Xfinity and Cup series races - for the second time this season. That also happened to him at his home track in Las Vegas four weeks earlier.

Harvick, who won eight times previous year, is winless in seven 2019 starts. No other racer had led more than 54 this season.

Logano did win the first stage before a pit penalty pushed him back in the pack in the second stage.

Bell joins Reddick, fourth-place finisher Chase Briscoe and sixth-place finisher Michael Annett as those who will be eligible for a $100,000 bonus during next week's race at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway. He started 21st. He started the second stage in the fourth spot but was never a contender to win.

"Something broke out of nowhere. It's a better race that way when they're able to keep up, so that means we've got to go to work and work harder in order to get ourselves a little faster".

After extended time to fix the vehicle, Keselowski got back on the track and finished 36th in the 39-car field, 55 laps behind the victor.
