With just two laps remaining, the tension escalated as Wallace made contact with Larson, resulting in a dramatic spin-out for the No. 5 car. The impact was deep on Joe Gibbs Racing driver Martin Truex JR as his teammate Denny Hamlin used the final late restart to take up the lead and win the race.

In a moment of disappointment, Martin Truex Jr. made contact with Kyle Larson on the last lap of the race. Fortunately, both drivers managed to navigate their cars to the checkered flag and finish within the top 5. However, after the race, Kyle Larson revealed that Truex may have acted out of frustration.

Final lap draa between Martin Truex Jr. and Larson

Martin Truex Jr. had a dominant performance, leading 228 out of 407 laps during the race. Victory seemed within reach until a caution flag waved with just two laps to go.

On the last lap, Truex lost second place to Joey Logano in Turn 1. Larson, ever the provocateur, challenged Truex’s inside down the backstretch. Truex retaliated by turning left into Larson, resulting in additional contact off Turn 4.
