Kyle Busch took home the W for the NASCAR Trucks Series race at Homestead-Miami Speedway this Saturday night. This particular win will go down as his 58th career win on the circuit and his 8th dub out of his last 10 truck racing events.
He recently lost his last two runs in a trucks event, which is somewhat of a drought according to his own standards considering the fact that he’s never gone winless in 3 straight events of the sort since 2017.
He led 82 of 134 laps, which is 61% if you’re someone who enjoys percentages like myself.
“It was awesome tonight,” Busch said.
“We’ve thrown away the last two races,” Busch said. “This is how we’re supposed to perform and run and look.”
Kyle was put at odds with some variables going into the evening, having had to start at the back of the field for one, as well as serving a pass-through penalty in addition to that for having failed a pre-race inspection.
Regardless, he maintained the lead lap throughout the event and was able to strategically work his way to the front of the pack rather quickly considering the amount of time he led.
“Really good race for us,” Busch said.
That about sums it up.
