Busch passes Larson to win at Bristol

Share
The Latest Completion of Bristol race postponed to Monday

Busch passed Larson with five laps remaining at Bristol Motor Speedway on Monday to win his second straight Cup Series race, culminating a rain-delayed weekend when temperatures dipped into the high 30s.

"You tend to try to want to think about saving that bump and run deal for the last lap, but I just took my chance with it, and if he got back to my rear bumper, then so be it", Busch said. The Joe Gibbs Racing driver and 2015 series champion won his seventh career Cup race at Bristol, most among active drivers.

The weather led to a stop-start motion on Sunday and more delays on Monday that caused a skip in the regular rhythm for drivers and teams, even for race victor Busch.

"I knew it would be hard to get back to him", said Larson, who led 200 laps and finished 0.628 of a second behind Busch. "That gets frustrated after a while, too".

Busch said after the race that he didn't have the best vehicle, but "we had the best auto right at the end".

"As soon as we restarted, I was extremely loose", added Larson. I wish it would have stayed green.

NASCAR had applied traction compound to the lower groove before the race resumed (but before another quick, freezing rain forced NASCAR to dry the track) and a top groove - one that potentially could have helped Larson - never truly came in.

Larson appeared to have the vehicle to beat on Monday, running well ahead of the pack on long green flag runs.

"I just didn't really have the grip compared to the restarts before", said Stenhouse. "All in all a great weekend, hopefully this will kick start the rest of our season".

Despite early damage to his No. 10 Ford, Aric Almirola recovered to finish sixth, followed by teammates Harvick and Clint Bowyer. "There's so much that the driver can do behind the wheel adjusting his line and little adjustments that he has inside the vehicle". The seven-time NASCAR champion saw his career-long winless streak reach 31 races but earned his first top five of the season and first since Dover in October.

"The results stink right now", said Bayne.

Wallace led six laps, the first of his Cup Series career, before finishing 16th, still the high finish by any rookie in the field. You can't have wrecks and you can't have blown tires.

The drivers head to another short-track in Richmond Saturday night.
