As usual, there was much mayhem to the Bristol Night Race-why? To put it simply, because it's Bristol. Tonight, it was Kurt Busch who was able to survive the absolute chaos of short track racing.
Kurt Busch hasn't won a race in 58 races his last one being the 2017 Daytona 500. Busch doesn't have a team deal for next season. The 41 car nose as covered in duct tape from damage early on in the race. "That's gotta be a good feeling for Kurt Busch... this ones gotta feel good." The crowd went wild. "It was awesome to be in this position... I didn't want to let my dad down he's here tonight."
"This was an awesome, awesome win for us."
This was also the first win for Busch's Crew Chief Billy Scott. Busch's helmet, gloves and flag all were left on the hood of the car on the way to Victory Lane and fell as he drove away- much excitement from the 41 driver to get to Victory Lane.
The Victory Lane in Bristol is actually on the second level of the building in turn three. "This was definitely a team win for Kurt Busch and the 41 team."
"Look at this smile on Kurt's face-2017 Daytona-last time we were in victory lane hows it feel to be here tonight?" "The guys made good adjustments-just so proud of the team effort. This one is one of the sweetest."
