Kyle Busch: Wins Weather-Delayed Food City 500

Kyle Larson is leading the NASCAR Cup Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway, but he'll have to wait a day to see if he can win it. "I'm not so sure that [Larson] had that there at the end", Busch said.

"I knew it would be hard to get back to him", Larson said. "I just really didn't have any grip". I thought it would tighten up for me and I could get going, but it never really did. If he got back to my rear bumper, so be it, that's fair game to race that way.

The forecast was spot-on, as the race was paused three times Sunday due to rain at the half-mile Tennessee track.

"We knew we were going to have a great long run auto". "We were all just getting ready to move up to the top. I don't know if there is a dominant lane after that".

"It seemed like Kyle gave their guys room, and Brad and [crew chief] Paul [Wolfe] gave us room".

Stage 2: After running 79 laps in Stage 2 on Sunday, NASCAR ultimately postponed the remainder of the race until Monday afternoon. It resumed on Monday on Lap 205 of 500.

In France, " Ready Player One " made $2.4 million on 667 screens, while in Korea, it's brought in $1.9 million on 585 screens. Dwayne Johnson's action-adventure Rampage made a strong start in China over the weekend, chalking up a hearty $55 million.


The win was Busch's second straight win on the 2018 season and his seventh win at Bristol.

Larson, Jimmie Johnson, Stenhouse Jr. and Alex Bowman rounded out the five finishers.

Busch has been on a good strand as of late, finishing first twice, second three times and third twice. It needed to get to Lap 250 (the end of stage 2) for it to count as an official race, but there were no clear indications that they could get in those 46 laps, let alone the race to its scheduled completion.

Kyle Busch stood on the hood of his No. 18 Toyota shaking his fists as the snow began falling around him.

In addition to Busch and Keselowski often being in each other's heads, Busch is in Larson's head a little bit when it comes to Bristol.

Following a brief rain relay, Busch regained the lead and held it until Larson made his charge on lap 438. Contact between Chris Buescher and Trevor Bayne in front of the lead pack created a Turn 3 tangle that ensnared Harrison Rhodes, Jamie McMurray and Blaney, who had led 100 laps before the Lap 117 incident.

He says he runs so many marathons mostly as a training device, with so few races in his native Kuki, Saitama, Japan. But the East Africans who have dominated the professional era of the race had their worst performance in decades.


Kyle Larson leads the race with 296 laps left. Wallace passed Busch with 126 laps remaining to lead a Cup race for the first time in his young career.

Fast forward to deep into the third stage and Larson spun out of the lead after contact with Ryan Newman. Keselowski fell off the pace and a lap down with what he described as a tire issue.

Larson held on for second but was clearly dejected after the checkered flag flew.

On Lap 471, Keselowski got into the wall to bring out another caution. It was a result that left him visibly frustrated.

Coming on the heels of his victory at Texas a week ago, this marked the fifth time in his Cup career that Busch scored back-to-back wins.
