May 1, 2023 – Dover, DE — NASCAR returned to Dover Motor Speedway, a.k.a., The Monster Mile, after a rain delay forced the race to a Monday afternoon. Martin Truex Jr came out on top after 3 race stages.
Another year and other rained out Sunday for the Dover drivers and fans. But a healthy contingent turned out the next day to see a tight battle. Truex Jr came out on top and snapped a 54-race winless streak, scoring the victory, earning his first points since since September 2021 at Richmond, VA.
The race started out a bit bumpy with a Stage-1 wreck caused by Ross Chastain that also took out Brennan Poole and Kyle Larson. But the remainder of the day saw no significant yellows under partly sunny skies.
