Long before the race, Austin Dillon's #3 car faces trackbar issues and lost 12 laps before his car is fixed and return to the track. Later on, during the race, Erik Jones makes contact with Chris Buescher while entering the pit road. As Ryan Blaney won the 1st stage of the race, things get heated up in Texas and at the end of the second stage, which Blaney also won, Jimmie Johnson came out from nowhere and after Blaney sliding through his pit box on the final stop on Lap 300 and losing track position, placing him on 12th place, Johnson scored his seventh win at Texas Motor Speedway.
Quite a surprising way to start Spring Break with a NASCAR race in the biggest state in America; Texas.
Next race is at Bristol Motor Speedway on the 23rd of April.
