Kyle Busch became the 18th driver in NASCAR premier series history to win at least 40 career races with his victory at the 2017 Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race on Saturday.
Busch has had an incredible week at Bristol Motor Speedway, sweeping the Camping World Truck Series, Xfinity Series and Monster Energy Series races.
The No. 18 car started from the 18th position, though that didn’t faze it one bit. Busch earned the extra playoff point by winning the first stage, passing pole-sitter Erik Jones and Kyle Larson with two laps remaining:
