Martin Truex Jr. wins 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series title

Truex celebrates LAM

Maybe that's when it started to set in, not the gravity of it all - that certainly won't come in one night, or one week, or even who knows when - but that it had happened. Since then, the Kannapolis, North Carolina, native has 26 Cup Series wins, which include four wins at Daytona and six at Talladega, Earnhardt has 24 Xfinity Series wins and back to back titles in the second-tier series (then the Busch Series).

Martin Truex Jr. was, by far, the most dominant driver this season, and with his eighth race win this year, he cruised to his first Cup Series championship at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Truex led nearly every statistical category this year, including wins, laps led, and stage victories.

Truex win marks the fourth straight year, the winner at Homestead did it to win the Cup Series championship.

All the video tributes, gifts and heartfelt gratitude Earnhardt received in the months since he announced his retirement seemed to fade as he pulled onto pit road. Ironically, he is the only driver of the Championship 4 that has never won a championship. That speed led to qualifying with 11 poles, stage racing with 33 stage wins, which eventually led to race wins.

So Pollex stood a few feet away and recorded it all on her phone, swiping up constantly to remove the congratulatory text messages now flooding her iPhone. Title contender Kyle Busch (167.188) was 16th and title contender Kevin Harvick (167.017) was 17th. They've taken a page out of hockey's postseason and grown out the playoff beards.

He also made a deal in the exchange. Earnhardt popped out of his car, flashed a thumbs-up sign and chugged a Budweiser. Drenched in sweat and suds, he grabbed another cold one, then passed the brews around to his crew members.

"For me, the real emotion was when Dale came to me with his decision earlier this year", said team owner Rick Hendrick, who has fielded Earnhardt's race cars since 2008, when the racer left Dale Earnhardt Incorporated, the organization founded by his legendary father. Truex won two Xfinity Series championships driving for Earnhardt early in his career. I think a perfect scenario is to go out there and race them heads up and beat them fair and square. In the four mile and a half tracks in the playoffs, Harvick finished 8th, 3rd (twice) and won at the most recent one in Texas. Before jumping into the No. 88 car for the final time, Earnhardt Jr. embraced his pregnant wife as fireworks burst and fighter jets roared over the track. "I was going to be gutted if we didn't win", Truex said.

"I'll wreck any damn one of these three", he joked. A lot of it was for me. In the case of Watkins Glen, the series effectively replaces the Verizon IndyCar Series, a series they regularly support. Earnhardt was also given a tribute lap before the green flag dropped to start the race.

"I'm so glad I get to run this last year".
