Kyle Busch wins in Richmond

Kyle Busch wins in Richmond

Ty Dillon, Chevrolet, 402 21.

On Saturday night, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series makes its first visit of the 2018 season to Richmond Raceway in Richmond, Virginia. It was Busch's 46th career victory and fifth win at Richmond after finishing ahead of Chase Elliot and Denny Hamlin.

For the rest of the season, Busch said, he received death threats and had constant protection.

"We've kind of lost a little bit of what our handle was there a few years ago when we were really good", Busch told reporters.

The two decades before that, which featured 33 straight sold-out races, will be remembered as a time where the track grew too fast, too quickly - from a capacity of 59,368 to 112,029.

Attack on Would-Be Voters Leaves 57 Dead in Afghanistan
The two groups want to establish a strict form of Islamic rule in Afghanistan and are opposed to democratic elections. Officials have been pushing people to register amid fears a low turnout will undermine the credibility of the polls.


Richmond is an impound race, meaning that the teams do not have a typical happy hour practice session due to the cars being impounded following qualifying. "I think the 42's strong this week". However, a mishap on pit road late and a vehicle issue ended his bid for his first career short-track win. "They were awesome tonight on pit road". That was the deepest in the field a victor had ever started at Richmond. That's a tall order, given the vagaries of restrictor-plate racing.

While Harvick and Busch may be tied for the series wins lead, Busch has the edge when it comes to points in the playoffs. "You don't really know exactly what you're going to have".

"We'll see what we can do..."

So, with Talladega awaiting next weekend, what about a fourth win a row?

Christopher Bell grabbed the lead out of a restart to begin the final stage and held off teammate Noah Gragson to win the NASCAR Xxfinity Series race Friday night at Richmond Raceway. Kyle Busch worked his way up to a 6th place stage 1 finish after starting way back in 32nd.

"Just very fortunate circumstances there at the end for us with the way the restarts went". "Having a short run there at the end was definitely in our favor". Busch wasted no time advancing through the field, moving into the top 10 early in the first stage.

"Tonight we beat ourselves, so that's unfortunate", said Truex, who started on the pole.

"I thought it was much improved from where we have been", the Hendrick Motorsports driver said.

"I wish I could re-run that, I feel like we can do better if we tried again". But a jack issue on his pit stop following the caution with nine laps to go tripped him up.

He would have to race from deep in the field, and it would take many laps for him to charge to the front. Harvick, who also had a three-race winning streak this season, is the only other driver with multiple victories. Busch will go to Talladega next week seeking to equal the four consecutive victories last done by Johnson 11 years ago. Fords dominated the action early, taking the first three positions in Stage 1 and the top four in Stage 2.
