|Kyle Busch is downright unbeatable at Richmond.|
"It was an awesome weekend all around." Busch said post race. "We unloaded here yesterday and had a decent car off the truck and was able to work on it and just kept making some changes to it, try to make it better for us. And you know, there through much of the race we just kept ourselves in position and did what we needed to do to stay in the top 5 and had a good race car to do that with, and the guys on pit road gave me phenomenal stops to gaining ground every time even when we were pulling spring rubber. Can't say enough about those guys. Wherever that last caution came from, that was the saving grace, just the luck of the day, and put us in the right position there coming down pit road behind Tony, and the guys did a fast pit stop, got us the lead off pit road, which was a huge advantage, just being able to give me the control of the restart and not have to wait on Tony or cause myself to spin my tires or what have you and get behind."
Kyle Busch also tied his brother Kurt for all-time Sprint Cup wins. "You know, Kurt and I, we were actually tied once before. I think it was last year maybe. And then he won one or two or whatever, got back ahead of me. No, it's cool. It's cool that we're tied for wins like that, you know. It's neat that we're still racing around here in the Sprint Cup Series hopefully with many more wins that we can both achieve." Rowdy said.
Busch finished ahead of Dale Earnhardt Jr., who finished second, and Tony Stewart, who finished third. Junior talked about his brake issues late in the race. "I couldn't get enough front brake in it at the end to run as hard as I wanted to, and we just had hurt the balance a little bit on entry. But really happy to come home with second. We were running about fifth all night, and just got lucky on that restart to be on the inside and get a couple spots. We just kind of got lucky there at the end on a couple things to gain a couple extra spots. But we ran good. We were terrible last year at this track and I really like running here, and I just was curious as to why we weren't performing as well. So it feels good to run all right here." Earnhardt Jr. said.
Getting back to Rowdy: He's only finished outside the top 6 twice in his career at Richmond. Busch has been crazy good at Richmond, now winning four spring in a row.
