Kyle Busch was able to mark another one off his list. Busch won the NASCAR Sprint Cup Go Bowling 400 at Kansas Speedway Saturday night holding off Kevin Harvick over the course of the final 19 laps to score his first career Kansas Speedway victory.
“This is pretty big – man, “ Busch said. “There’s been a lot of rough days here at Kansas, that’s for sure.”
While Busch celebrated his 37th career win, Martin Truex Jr. could only lament about another race that was his to lose, and another race that he did lose. Truex started from the pole and was the class of the field leading a race high 172 laps and at one point enjoyed a five-second lead. During a round of green flag pit stops that started on lap 212 Truex saw it all come apart. After the stop, he reported a vibration and was forced to pit again. The crew changed all four tires again and found a lug nut was hung up on the right front tire. It was a problem similar to one the team suffered at Bristol, and it was tires that cost Truex a victory at Texas.
