30 Second Read: Kyle Busch captures the Buschy McBusch Race 400


Sunday marked the 16th consecutive season that Kyle Busch has gone to victory lane. The no. 18 M&M's Toyota Camry carried a consistent pace throughout the day and showed that the curse of Kansas Speedway has been lifted for the Joe Gibbs Racing driver. Busch won stage one as well as the race win but had to hold off challengers.

In what seemed like another edition of the Kyle and Kyle show, Kyle Larson showed again why he is a force to be reckoned with. With a stage 2 victory, Larson remained in the top 5 all day until the final restart that resulted in what could have been a massive wreck off of turn two turning Ryan Blaney sideways into traffic. The aggressive push would unfortunately end the 5 team's bid for a second victory this season.

Chris Buescher gambled by staying out on a long green flag run hoping for a caution as a tire ran away from a pit stall. Buescher would finish with a top 10.

Rowdy was the 10th different winner in eleven races this season. The way I see it..this may be the start of a bounce back year for Kyle Busch.
