    It may be a coincidence however it seems to me that JJ has not won since the at track inspection process
    was adopted.

    Paging @Charlie Spencer to decode this one.

    Kyle Petty also got his final Cup win at Dover on this day in history, June 4, 1995. That was the last of 8 though, not the last of 83.

    He’s still unclear on the concept.

    Give him some time.

    Wrong. The Title introduces OTDIH within a 2017 field.

    The way it is written, there is no specific date in the Title.

    I really thought Johnson would be the one driver to challenge Pearson's 105 wins. Now, I don't think he'll win but 1 or 2 more races before he hangs it up.

    Generally "On This Date In History" is understood to mean this date as in today's date. "On A Different Date In History" might be just as valid, but perhaps doesn't have the same cachet.

    Truex_rox 19 looks better than ever.

    OTDIH in 2015, Martin Truex, Jr., then a Chevrolet driver, snapped a 69-race winless streak at Pocono in the Axalta "We Paint Winners" 400. This finally cemented a result that had gone begging in the prior three races, in which he had led the most laps but somehow fell short one way or another. It was the first of what would become his many triumphs with Furniture Row Racing. The victory saw him run second in the standings only to a very much in-form Kevin Harvick, by 39 points. Recently retired drivers, such as Dale Jr., Jamie McMurray, Kasey Kahne, Matt Kenseth, and Jeff Gordon were all in the top ten in points. Carl Edwards was hanging on to the final transfer spot, but was already locked in by virtue of a fuel-mileage Coke 600 win.
