Kyle Busch has officially qualified himself for the Chase.
Busch’s No. 18 Toyota dominated the competition in Sunday’s Overton’s 400 at Pocono Raceway, leading 74 of the 160 laps on his way to his first win of the 2017 season. He defeated second-place Kevin Harvick by more than six seconds, and only four cars came within 16 seconds of a dominant effort by Busch.
While he won the All-Star Race in May, Busch’s Pocono excellence comes after a bit of a frustrating stretch. He’d finished 12th or worse in three of the previous four races to push himself down the points standings during a critical juncture of the season.
Martin Truex Jr., Denny Hamlin and Brad Keselowski rounded out the top five.
