Kyle Busch Makes History At Charlotte

  • Pin It

Whether you love Kyle Busch or hate him, there is nothing that the 2015 Monster Energy champion can’t do. While he is on the road to destiny to win championship number two, for the moment his equal is Kevin Harvick and was the only driver who could derail Kyle’s chance of making history. But once he hit the wall after blowing out a left rear, no one could hang with him as he was headed for destiny leading 377 laps and winning all four stages of the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte, but that is not all.

Since his rookie year in 2005, it took him 14 years to win at every track he has raced on, which is the most rarest feat anyone in NASCAR could pull off. Kyle started from the pole and on every restart was able to win every single race off of pit road, which made for a near perfect event at Charlotte. There were times that Kyle would gain an average of two seconds on each lead and when it was all over, there were only nine cars left on the lead lap, which is something you don’t see on mile and a half tracks.

With Toyota winning its fifth race of the season, the manufacturer finished in the top three, with Martin Truex Jr second after rebounding from two pit road penalties and teammate Denny Hamlin third. Hamlin had the third most laps led with nine and Joey Logano second most with 12. Brad Keselowski was the highest finishing Ford in fourth and Jimmie Johnson who spun out earlier in the race, came back to finish fifth, and was only his second top five of 2018.

Kyle will be looking for his fifth win of 2018 at Pocono, where he won the August race last season and is when he finally won at the Tricky Triangle.
