Fan Confronts & Tries To Fight Kyle Busch During Post-Race Altercation

Fan Confronts & Tries To Fight Kyle Busch During Post-Race Altercation

In winning his first Busch Pole Award at Thunder Valley, his third of the season and the seventh of his career, Larson edged Chase Elliott (127.665 mph) by.015 seconds to earn the top starting spot in Saturday's Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race (6:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN, PRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).

Kurt Busch had a good restart and Kyle Larson, on fresher tires, desperately tried to catch him.

Late in the race, Busch bumped Martin Truex Jr., who was running second at the time, causing the No. 78 to lose control and wreck out.

"This place has been so hard on us", Truex said.

"Totally my fault, man, I feel bad about that" Busch said.

Truex was frustrated but never blamed Busch. Busch once won three consecutive times on the Tennessee track and was considered the best in the business on the concrete oval. Busch was trying to work his way into the traction compound, a sticky substance track officials use on the lower groove to give the drivers more grip and encourage them to try the bottom groove despite the upper groove being naturally faster at Bristol. He lost four races to Kyle Busch, now one to Kurt Busch.

"I didn't think he was going to run into me", Truex said. When Busch got close to the fan, the fan threw a hard shove at the NASCAR star. "So just played too nice and got the crappy end of the stick". Before you lock in any 2018 NASCAR at Bristol picks, it's worth your time to see what SportsLine data engineer Mike McClure has to say. That caused Hunter-Reay's vehicle to careen into the wall and Wickens' auto was pulled along for the ride. Blaney won the opening stage.

The 29-year-old Wickens was attempting to pass Ryan Hunter-Reay when the two cars slightly touched just six laps into the race. Power is 87 points back in fourth place. He is seeking his first victory since joining Stewart-Haas Racing. Falling two laps down, Busch eventually rallied and made it back into the top 10 until a round of pit stops where the team needed to take extra time to ensure the vehicle was full of fuel.

"I just got hit in the left rear, pretty simple", Truex said. "But it still feels really, really cool to win a race here, finally, at Bristol".

In addition to Busch, many big-name drivers such as Darrell Wallace Jr. and A.J. Allmendinger were done for the night. Short tracks eliminate aero, and they put the race in the hands of the drivers.

This wreck capped a tough weekend for Busch, who was knocked out of the Xfinity Series race after leading for the first 70 laps when he crashed due to a flat tire.

Kyle Larson won his third pole of the season as he eyes his first NASCAR Cup Series victory of the year. He led the Xfinity Series race Friday before an early accident knocked him out. He's on a roll after winning the Xfinity Series race a night earlier. Albeit a championship was won four years ago, it came with "part failures, inexperience, mistakes". He was greeted by a chorus of boos after choosing DJ Khaled's "All I Do Is Win" as the song to accompany his introduction Saturday, then threatened to produce one of his most unlikely wins of all.
