It was a huge day at Watkins Glen International, where Martin Truex Jr. and Furniture Row Racing won for the fourth time in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series this year.

For Truex, a New Jersey native, it was special to win at a track that he has been coming to since he was a child and his father raced.

And it was emotional, too, as Truex’s longtime girlfriend Sherry Pollex was back with him after missing several races while undergoing cancer treatment.

Toyotas swept the top four places, with Joe Gibbs Racing drivers Matt Kenseth, Daniel Suarez and Denny Hamlin finishing second through fourth, respectively.

Here’s what the races had to say on social media.
