RICHMOND, Va. (AP) Martin Truex Jr. seemed to have a `pinch me' moment as he climbed from his car in Victory Lane.

Nudged off the lead with 87 laps to go, Truex rallied Saturday night, ultimately passing teammate Kyle Busch with 25 laps to go and winning his second consecutive NASCAR Cup Series race. That it came in the series' playoffs, it seemed, made it all the more surreal.

"To spin and win is pretty incredible. I've never done anything like that in my life," Truex said. "When things are rolling, they just are."
