Kyle Busch wins at Texas for 1st victory of year

Kyle Busch wins at Texas for 1st victory of year

The two best drivers on the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series this season dueled down the stretch Sunday, with Kyle Busch edging Kevin Harvick for his first victory of the season.

"As much as I love to win and hate to lose, it obviously feels a heck of a lot better when you can be in this [media] room talking about a win rather than a second or third, something like that, like we have been the past six weeks", Busch said.

The victory was the first of the season for the Joe Gibbs Racing driver.

"This has been a trying couple of months, you know?

And of course, you know, also just continue our hot streak of being the point-leader right now and keeping these guys focused on what we need to do all year long". It is the third win for Busch at Texas, and the 44th in his career.

Hamlin, Brad Keselowski, Austin Dillon, Trevor Bayne, Aric Almirola, David Ragan and Jimmie Johnson all got caught up in the crash - knocking Hamlin, Keselowski, Almirola and Johnson out of the race.

Jamie McMurray finished third, ahead of Erik Jones. He led a race-high 116 laps, including the final 30 to capture the win against red-hot Kevin Harvick. Busch did it by driving flawless over the closing laps.

On the first lap after the re-start, Denny Hamlin's auto got loose, causing a seven-car crash that brought out a red flag that temporarily stopped the race.

The police said that they have accessed video clips, which showed the brutal assault of victims at the hands of the gang members. On March 22, a third robbery happened in the 6300 block of Beatties Ford Road in north Charlotte around 2 p.m.

"It was a judgement call, and after conducting a post-race review of the incident an uncontrolled tire penalty for the 4 vehicle would have been correct". "The 18 [Kyle Busch] was falling back there". Vettel was nearly overtaken by Bottas on the last lap, but made a crucial blocking move and won by only 0.6 seconds. "As much as I give it everything I got, I want to make sure all of our people are giving it everything they've got, too". Kyle's got a lot of confidence in Adam and our team, but it is frustrating when you feel like - second sometimes, you know, it's so hard.

"Well, just blew a right-front tire out of nowhere", Truex, who was running second at the time, said. Harvick said he was sabotaged by a series of mishaps stemming from the pit guns used to change tires.

Just hate that I blew a right-front (tire) there. We've just come up short.

Now one lap down, Harvick engaged in a fierce battle with Darrell Wallace Jr. and Chase Elliott to be the driver who would be returned to the lead lap should another yellow flag come out. Harvick lost several spots on the ensuing pit stop, apparently because a wayward lug nut landed in the team's jack and slowed the service of the No. 4 Ford. But he wasn't on the track long as the fall victor at TMS had a loose wheel and was forced to pit again, dropping him a lap back and into the 21st spot. You might spend the next 60 laps trying to get those positions back.

Kyle Busch punched his ticket to The Playoffs Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth. Joey Logano, Kurt Busch, Wallace, Clint Bowyer and William Byron completed the top 10.

Martin Truex Jr. crashed on Lap 81, finishing 37th - and last - ending a streak of 10 consecutive top-five finishes on 1 1/2-mile tracks. Truex was running second to Harvick when his right front tire blew entering Turn 4.

Harvick was the poster child for Murphy's Law on Sunday, and it was a minor miracle that he was there at the end of the race to challenge Busch. "He's all about wanting to make sure I get to Victory Lane and we get to go celebrate and play with confetti". I think the first set of tires that came off the tire looked great.

"We weren't as good behind him as we were in front of him".
