Description The 2019 Federated Auto Parts 400 is a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race that was held on September 21, 2019, at Richmond Raceway in Richmond, Virginia. Contested over 400 laps on the .75-mile (1.21 km) D-shaped short track, it was the 28th race of the 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season, second race of the Playoffs and second race of the Round of 16.
It had been almost three months since Martin Truex Jr. last raised a trophy, and while others may have wondered about his No. 19 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota team’s playoff potential, its members never wavered in confidence or pursuit.
And sure enough, they were the ones celebrating in Victory Lane at Las Vegas Motor Speedway after Sunday night’s South Point 400 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs opener.
It was Truex’s fifth victory of the year – best in the field – and an automatic ticket to the next round of the playoffs.
As strong as Harvick’s Ford had been – leading 47 laps – he said afterward he really didn’t have much for Truex in the end.
The top 10 drivers were all playoff competitors. Three-time Vegas winner Brad Keselowski was third in the No. 2 Team Penske Ford. Hendrick Motorsports’ Chase Elliott brought his No. 9 Chevrolet home fourth, and Harvick’s Penske teammate, Ryan Blaney, was fifth.
