Chris Buescher played the perfect strategy – putting himself out front in the closing stages of the Food City 300. However, on a green-white-checkered, Buescher stuttered coming off turn two, which opened the door for Kyle Busch. Busch would then lead the rest of the way to score the victory in the Food City 300.
“It was a hard fought battle,” Busch commented. “Our car wasn’t the best early in the race and Chris Gale and these guys made good adjustments and got it better. When we pitted with a 100 to go, I was like ‘Wow, we have to go 100 laps?’ I just tried to save and let the 60 go. I knew we were going to get some cautions on the end. We weren’t sure if they’d make it on fuel and obviously, they cut it a little close. It’s fun to run these cars. this Toyota Camry was fun to drive today.”
