Kyle Busch led Joe Gibbs Racing with a sixth-place finish in today’s AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway, while Denny Hamlin finished 18th and Joey Logano was 29th.
Kyle Busch started the No. 18 Interstate Batteries Toyota from the fifth position and was able to race inside the top five for much of the day. Busch was able to lead a lap and pick up the important bonus point for doing so during a round of green flag pit stops on lap 113. The Interstate Batteries Camry would remain inside the top ten for most of the second half of the race despite Busch having to battle changing conditions to his car. Busch would run fourth when the green flag waived for the final restart of the day on lap 366 and he was able to quickly maneuver around Kasey Kahne to take the third spot. Suddenly Busch would find that his 18 car had become extremely loose however and he would spend the final 30 laps battling to remain at the front of the field. Busch would do an outstanding job and brought his Camry across the finish line in the sixth position.
