Kyle Busch picked up his 48th victory in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Sunday at Chicagoland Speedway, tying the driver with two-time champion Herb Thomas for 14th on the all-time wins list.
Busch led the last 34 laps en route to victory in the Overton’s 400, holding on for his fifth victory in the 2018 season.
Kyle Larson took the lead from Busch on the final lap in Turn 2, with both making contact coming out of the turn. Busch made contact with Larson into Turn 3, with Busch using the front bumper of his No. 18 car to hit the rear of Larson’s No. 42 car, sending Larson for a spin. Larson finished second.
Rounding out the top-five finishers were Kevin Harvick, Martin Truex Jr. and Clint Bowyer.
The next three drivers ahead of Busch on the all-time wins list are Tony Stewart (49), Junior Johnson (50) and Ned Jarrett (50).
