For the eleventh time this season, Kyle Busch went to Victory Lane in the No.54 Monster Energy Toyota.
During the Dollar General 300 last night at Charlotte Motor Speedway, many were hoping that a Nationwide Series regular would make it to the top. Well…they were close.
In Victory Lane, Busch announced that he and wife Samantha were donating all the race winnings to the Pretty in Pink Foundation to combat breast cancer.
“I didn’t think we were going to win the thing, but somehow I got to the top (of the track) and started making time and was able to get back up there (to the lead),” Busch said. “I certainly want to do this tomorrow night also (in the Sprint Cup race).”
Austin Dillon and Sam Hornish Jr battled hard to get past the pole-sitter in the closing laps of the race but finished 2nd and 3rd behind Busch. Dillon now leads the championship points standings by eight over Hornish.
“We had three guys fighting it out there till the end with everything we had,” Dillon said. “It was a heck of a race. I told Sam it was the best race I felt like I was a part of all year, slicing and dicing out there.”
