Marc Marquez (No. 93 Repsol Honda Team) solidified his lead in the MotoGP standings after getting the better of main title rival Andrea Dovizioso (No. 4 Ducati Team) to win a thrilling Aragon MotoGP. Marquez passed Dovizioso with three laps remaining, which brings him a step closer to winning his e fifth MotoGP title. Andrea Iannone (No. 29 Team Suzuki ECSTAR) tried to make a three-way race of it at one point, but he settled for third, his first top-three finish since May's Jerez race. Alex Rins (No. 42 Team Suzuki ECSTAR) finished a very competitive fourth.

Kyle Busch (No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing M&Ms Toyota) held off Kevin Harvick (No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Jimmy John's New 9-Grain Wheat Sub Ford) to win Saturday night’s Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond Raceway to advance to the second round of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs. After battling with Brad Keselowski (No. 2 Team Penske Reese/Drawtite Ford) for 21 laps, Busch made the winning pass for the lead on Lap 364 of 400 at the .75-mile track. Busch’s first victory in a fall race at Richmond was his sixth at the track, most among active drivers, giving him a season sweep at the short track. It was also Busch’s seventh of the season — tying him with Harvick for the series lead — and the 50th of his career, tying him with NASCAR Hall of Famers Junior Johnson and Ned Jarrett for 11th on the all-time list. Martin Truex Jr. (No. 78 Front Row Racing Auto-Owners Insurance Toyota), who won the first and second stages and led a race-high 163 laps, recovered from a penalty for an uncontrolled tire to run third, marking the first time this season NASCAR’s so-called Big 3 have finished 1-2-3 in a race.

Said finished second and a hard-charging Josh Hurley (No. 03 McAleese & Associates/Jetco Engineering Chevrolet Camaro) finished third.
