He returned to pit road a lap later to complete the fueling process and restarted 31st on Lap 59. "Last year we had a lug nut get stuck in the caliper, this year we had fueling problems. Nothing surprises me anymore".
Hamlin, Elliott and Erik Jones pitted on lap 17 as teams revealed their strategies while Busch, who dominated the segment, and Truex stayed on track. But after the blown pit stop, Busch had to work harder fighting his way through the field than Elliott did in keeping Truex behind him.
Both of these statements are set to change on Saturday, August 25, as Elliott, 62, is set to return to NASCAR in the Xfinity Series race at Road America.
PLAYOFF FIGHT: Paul Menard was dealt a blow to his playoff chances before the race even started when his No. 21 Ford failed inspection Sunday morning and he was sent to the rear of the 37-car field.

Suarez and Jones finished fourth and fifth, respectively, on Sunday.
Truex and seven-time champion Jimmie Johnson fought to get back in the top 12 at the end of the opening round after dropping out.
But both drivers have seen a decided uptick in their respective performances of late. But we're not the ones doing the pinning. "Hopefully, in the next month we get things figured out so we can at least be contenders when it gets down to these cutoff races".

"I still expect the same cars to be fast, " Logano said. "I gave it everything I had every single lap".
Chase Elliott won the Go Bowling at The Glen on Sunday afternoon at Watkins Glen International for his first career NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series win.
Elliott is set to drive the #23 GMS Racing Chevrolet, the vehicle that has been shared by a number of other drivers, including his son Chase, since the suspension of the former full-time driver of the auto, Spencer Gallagher, following the Sparks Energy 300 at Talladega Superspeedway in late April, in the Johnsonville 180. But Logano, who replaced Tony Stewart at JGR and won rookie of the year honors in 2009, saw his career begin to trend downward in 2011 and two years later he left for Penske Racing. "It is to go have fun, and I think he will".
Truex closed to the back bumper of Elliott's No. 9 Chevy heading out of the first turn of the final lap, skidding sideways, but Elliott pulled away and Truex sputtered home second, out of fuel.
