Kyle Busch Wins Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series at Dover International Speedway
Sunday's NASCAR race got down to the final laps for an exciting finish. Plus the field in the Playoffs for the Championship got narrowed down to 12 drivers from 16.
Kyle Busch, running the top line, chased down leader Chase Elliott at Dover International Speedway and passed him with two laps to go. Busch claims his second straight Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series victory.
Elliott was denied his first win in the series. Ryan Newman, in an attempt to stay on the lead lap and avoid Playoff elimination, slowed Elliott, which was an advantage for Busch ultimately.
Jimmie Johnson, the driver with the most wins at this track, came in third. The driver who started on the pole, Martin Truex Jr., came in fourth and remains the series leader.
