Back to Back for Kyle Busch

Jimmie Johnson had by far his best finish of a hard season, finishing third, followed by Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Alex Bowman.

Busch maybe got a little fortunate in that sense.

Busch, however, saw both Larson and Stenhouse slipping and went to work. "I've been beat by Kyle (Busch) about every time I race here, too; so that gets frustrating after a while". (Ricky Stenhouse Jr.) nearly got by me, was able to hold him off.

Keselowski passed Larson with 12 laps remaining the second stage for his third stage win this season.

Instead, Larson got a significant challenge from Stenhouse on the restart and the No. 17 Roush Fenway Racer almost took the lead.

"We've been talking about our cars performing better and driving better", said Johnson.

It didn't. And Busch won with more than a half-second to spare.

Bristol's annual spring race was postponed a day because of rain a year ago, and this is the second time in 2018 a Cup Series race was impacted by inclement weather. "It was really, really good there, and was just hoping it would go green until the end, and then we pitted, and I was actually fine with that, too, because I knew we'd leave as the leader and restart on the outside".

Bubba Wallace, the first full-time black driver in the Cup series since 1971, led for six laps in the third stage, the first laps he has led in his rookie season. but fell back and finished 16th. Larson then put Wallace a lap down 54 laps from the finish, leaving 13 cars on the lead lap.

Over the course of the two days, the Food City 500 was slowed by 13 cautions but featured 18 lead changes among eight different drivers. Bristol always puts on a show and the Sunday/Monday event was no exception. "There's so much that the driver can do behind the wheel, adjusting his line, you know, what little adjustments he has inside the vehicle, and chasing the rubber as it moves around the racetrack and as the groove changes, and it always puts on a good show". The Joe Gibbs Racing driver and 2015 series champion won his seventh career Cup race at Bristol, most among active drivers. Now 32 years old, the past champion is showing no signs of slowing down at Bristol, or elsewhere. "I thought I could get going, but I never really did. You can't have silly things happening and some of that is on us".
