Kyle Busch took the checkered flag at the Strat 200 in Las Vegas after a dominating performance.

After starting third, Busch took the lead on lap 11 and held off Christian Eckes to win Stage 1 followed by Johnny Sauter, Tyler Ankrum and Austin Hill. 

Busch struggled on restarts, but his No. 51 Toyota was great on the long run. Eckes took the lead when the green flag waved on Stage 2. After 15 laps, Busch was able to pull to the rear of Eckes and make a run. He pulled away to get another stage win. Eckes, Chastain, Enfinger and Crafton rounded out the top 5 to earn stage points. 

When the green flag waves on Stage 3, Busch maintains the lead ahead of Todd Gilliland. As the laps wound down, the battle for positions heated up. Christian Eckes made contact with the wall after getting a flat right front to bring out a caution. Kyle Busch maintains the lead over Sheldon Creed on after the restart. 

With 46 to go, Raphael Lessard and Grant Enfinger made contact with the wall to bring out the caution flag. The battle between Busch and Creed continued to heat up after the restart. They remained side by side with 35 laps to go until Creed got loose and fell to sixth. Busch takes the lead with Sauter in line behind him. 

Busch pulled away and maintained a 5.958 second lead over Sauter. Johnny Sauter, Austin Hill, Matt Crafton and Ben Rhodes rounded out the top 5. 

“It was the first win for Danny Stockman at KBM, and it’s cool to have him on board. My guys worked their butts off. We unloaded and we really weren’t that close. We worked on it a lot with this new tire, and we got it a lot better."

Friday night's victory was Kyle Busch's seventh win in his last seven starts in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series and his third at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. 

The NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series will be back in action for the Ultimate Tailgating 200 at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Saturday, March 14 at 1:30 p.m. on FS1. 

 

 

 

Busch Wins at Indy

Saturday, Sep 07

Kyle Busch took the checkered flag at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Saturday's Indiana 250. 

Busch managed to hold off the defending Indianapolis race winner, Justin Allgaier, in the final four laps to take the checkered flag for the fourth time this season.

After starting from the pole, Busch maintained top three for the first two stages, finishing third in Stage 1 and second in Stage 2. 

With only a handful of laps left, Tyler Reddick and Christopher Bell got into one another as they were battling for the lead bringing out a late race caution. The wreck eliminated two of the front-runners, giving Kyle Busch the top spot with only seven laps to go. 

The No. 18 Joe Gibbs Toyota took the lead on the final restart. Justin Allgaier trailed Busch by only .132 seconds as the laps were winding down. Busch held on to win for the 96th time in his career, adding to his series record. 

"I'm really proud of this team. This Toyota Supra was awesome today, and glad we got to take it to Victory Lane."

Allgaier, the defending Indianapolis winner, finished second, followed by Noah Gragson, Jeb Burton and Justin Haley rounding out the top-five. 

The Xfinity Series will be back in action for the regular season finale on Saturday, SeptEmber 14 at 7:30 PM on NBCSN. 

Kyle Busch took the checkered flag at Pocono Raceway for the 55th time in his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series career.

The No. 18 Camry was not dominate throughout the race, but he was there when it mattered the most. With nine laps to go on the final restart, Busch ran away with the lead over Brad Keselowski, teammate Erik Jones, Chase Elliott and Clint Bowyer.

Pit strategy played a big factor at the Tricky Triangle, as teams had to factor in fuel mileage and possible tire wear. Many drivers opted to stay on the track until the caution flag waved to gain valuable playoff points, but some elected to pit during green flag action. The No. 18 crew elected to pit before the end of each stage to give Kyle Busch a better restart position when the green flag waved.

"Overall my guys on pit road were awesome. It's cool to get a win at Pocono again," said Busch after earning his fourth win of the 2019 season.

Though he was not the dominate car in the first two stages, Busch led 79 of the 160 laps earning him his third Pocono win and tying NASCAR Hall of Famer, Rusty Wallace for the series all-time win list.

Brad Keselowski, Erik Jones, Chase Elliott and Clint Bowyer rounded out the top five in the Pocono 400 at Pocono Raceway.
