Martin Truex Jr. held off teammate Kyle Busch for his fourth win of the season in the NASCAR Cup Series race on the road course at Sonoma on Sunday.

Truek led 59 of the 90 laps and beat Busch by 1.8 seconds for his third career victory at Sonoma. Ryan Blaney finished third, more than 30 seconds behind Truex, with Matt DiBenedetto and Denny Hamlin rounding out the top five. The only two caution flags in the race were at the end of Stages 1 and 2.

With the win, Truex tied Busch atop the Cup Series standings with four victories this season, and gave Joe Gibbs Racing its 10th win in 16 starts this year. The Cup Series will race at Chicago next Sunday afternoon.
