Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Results: Monster Win for Kyle Busch

NASCAR

Kyle Busch passed Chase Elliott coming to the final lap and went on to win Sunday’s Apache Warrior 400 at Dover International Speedway.
Busch scored his third career Cup win at Dover and his second straight in the playoffs after winning New Hampshire last Sunday.
“That was hard-fought, that was everything I had,” Busch said. “I wasn’t sure I was going to make it, I rim-rided and carried it by the 24. I saw that carrot and I went for it.”
Elliott was left to finish a disappointing second.
“It was all just lap traffic dependent,” Elliott explained. “ I thought if I had a clean track, I could have run as fast as he did, but I didn’t, and I should have done something different.  So that’s just on me, and he did a better job than I did.  At the end of the day that’s what it comes down to.
