Ky. Busch wins second straight race with last-second pass

Ky. Busch wins second straight race with last-second pass

Persistent inclement weather has pushed the conclusion of the Food City 500 to Monday after rain continually delayed the NASCAR Cup Series race Sunday at Bristol Motor Speedway.

"You tend to try to want to think about saving that bump and run deal for the last lap, but I just took my chance with it, and if he got back to my rear bumper, then so be it", Busch said. However, the weather couldn't prevent Busch from collecting a seventh-career Bristol victory.

The weather led to a stop-start motion on Sunday and more delays on Monday that caused a skip in the regular rhythm for drivers and teams, even for race victor Busch. I feel like every time I race here, I nearly get a win, but it was fun race. Some race. I've been beaten by Kyle about every time I've raced here, too. "That gets frustrated after a while, too".

Kyle Busch: He battled for the lead with Larson, Keselowski, Bubba Wallace and a handful of others at various points Monday, and although his auto may not have been best, he was. "But if you put us in yesterday's temperatures, I think we would have been up higher a lot sooner".

"I wish it would have stayed green", said Stenhouse.

Larson dominated much of the second half of the race, even rebounding from a spin to retake the lead late in the final stage. "The newer exhausted we had were gonna be better for us to catch the 42 (Larson) in the long run". "I thought I could get going, but I never really did".

Despite early damage to his No. 10 Ford, Aric Almirola recovered to finish sixth, followed by teammates Harvick and Clint Bowyer.

The No. 43 auto piloted by Bubba Wallace donned the famous STP paint scheme designed by the driver for the second time this season. It didn't last long, though, as Busch blew by him a short time later. Nine laps later, Wallace passed Keselowski on the inside for the lead and led his first career laps as a Cup Series driver.

"The results stink right now", said Bayne. Something has happened every weekend to hurt out result. "That's just a great thing to have, and it gives you a lot of confidence when you can go to the racetrack with these guys".

Racing action moves up Interstate 81 and then onto I-64 for the trip into Richmond for the Toyota Owners 400, scheduled to run under the lights on Saturday night beginning at 7:00 PM at Richmond Raceway.
