Kyle Busch Wins In Richmond, Again
The No. 18 M&M’s car found victory lane once again at Richmond International Raceway, as Kyle Busch held off Dale Earnhardt Jr. to win the Capital City 400 on Saturday night.
It’s career win 24 in the Sprint Cup Series, his fourth consecutive spring victory at Richmond (NASCAR races at the track in the spring and fall).
Carl Edwards was in the front row on a restart with 10 laps to go when he was penalized for jumping the re-start ahead of Tony Stewart – Stewart wound up in the third, Edwards in tenth.
Speaking after the race, Edwards said he was told he was the leader, while circling the track under caution.
For Dale Jr., his fourth top 3 finish this year bumps him two spots in the standings to second, five points behind Greg Biffle, who finished 18th. Denny Hamlin took fourth, moving up two spots to third, nine points off the pace.
