Martin Truex Jr. grabs 1st win of NASCAR season at Fontana

FONTANA, Calif. (AP) — Martin Truex Jr. saw nothing but clean air and green flags down the stretch in his first victory of the new NASCAR Cup season.

Truex didn't get much of a look at Kevin Harvick, whose bid for four straight wins was ruined by an early crash at Fontana.

So even while Truex's Furniture Row Racing Toyota team celebrated, it was a wee bit disappointed not to get a duel with the early-season king.

"I think we would have had something for him today," team owner Barney Visser said.
