The 2019 OBRL Metro Ford Cup Series O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 race at Texas Motor Speedway started with Eddie Jones capturing the pole and Dwayne McArthur recording the fastest lap of the race. Gary Griffith gained 25 spots to win the Hard Charger Award. The race produced many close battles for position through the field with many position changes. Dwayne McArthur led 54 laps, with Jerrad Daniels going on to take the win. This week the drivers showed good race-craft, which resulted in 2 cautions with 14 lead changes and there were 2 disqualifications with 2 disconnects in a 30 car field ending with Jerrad Daniels capturing his 1st win of the season with Josh Mayeu finishing 2nd, Thomas Ogle 3rd and Dwayne McArthur capturing 4th.
