Kyle Busch made it a 3-peat in the spring race at Richmond International Raceway Saturday night. He stretched his final tank of gas to 107 laps to beat teammate Denny Hamlin, denying Hamlin a weekend sweep at his home track.
Busch led 235 of the 400 laps at the ¾ mile track including the last 85 for his 21st career victory and second this season. The fuel strategy was so close, Busch couldn’t finish his victory burn-out. He had to be pushed to victory lane.
