MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) Martin Truex Jr. admits to being surprised by his success at Martinsville Speedway.

Truex won a stirring, laps-long duel for the lead with teammate Denny Hamlin in the rain-delayed NASCAR Cup Series race Sunday night, winning for the third time in the last four stops at the 0.526-mile oval - the oldest and shortest in the series.

"This place has become a playground for us I guess," Truex said in Victory Lane. "We didn't have the best car all day, but we just kept working on it and never quit on it."
