Busch won for the first time this season - first since the 2017 season-opening Daytona 500 - but it was his sixth victory on the 0.533-mile bullring he once dominated. Busch once won three consecutive times on the Tennessee track and was considered the best in the business on the concrete oval. He started third and spun two laps into the race off Turn 4, which left him sideways across the track as multiple cars piled up.

Kyle Larson won his third pole of the season as he eyes his first NASCAR Cup Series victory of the year. He's so good that he chose the song "All I Do Is Win" by D.J. Khaled to play as he was introduced before the race.

And Martin Truex Jr.'s "nice-guy strategy" resulted in getting knocked out of contention in Saturday night's race at Bristol Motor Speedway while battling for second with Kyle Busch.

Lots of rumors swirled about the No. 41 Ford previous year at this time as well, but Busch eventually ended up returning to SHR.

Larson turned a lap at 127.792 miles per hour Friday in qualifying at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Larson's chances of winning could depend on whether he can hold off Busch, who already has seven Cup victories at Bristol.

"It just wasn't meant for us this weekend, I guess", Busch said. "I always wanted to get to 30 (wins)". This is a big win for me.

With Huddersfield likely to sit back and defend, Silva will be charged with unlocking the defence with a key pass. It is understood City bosses have not been approached by Spurs about the problem and have had no dialogue.

"I would assume they're upset", Stevens said.

The urgency to maximize his speed stems more from being well positioned in the playoffs than making the 16-driver field.

"It's all about winning", he said. Somewhere like, say, Stewart-Haas Racing.

Busch barely got into Truex, but it was just enough to send him hard into the wall. "I feel awful about that". "They got wrecked out of a race".

Harvick has some impressive statistics on Bristol's high banks, having led 876 laps at the short track while earning two wins, 12 top-five finishes and 18 top-10s in 35 starts.

Truex was running in second when he crashed with 69 laps remaining and ended up placing 30th. Kyle has since apologized for the collision, although he's also taken heat from Bristol fans and Truex's girlfriend, Sherry Pollex, who took to Twitter to criticize the clipping. "Obviously I just misjudged it by a little bit - four inches, six inches, whatever and I got in the gas and was coming up off the corner and was going to slide in behind him (Martin Truex Jr.) and I didn't think I was next to him yet and I clipped him and sent him for a whale of a ride". He led the Xfinity Series race Friday before an early accident knocked him out.

The contact was just one part of a long night for Busch. Incidents between the two are few, and Truex took the blame past year for wrecking the two of them at Indianapolis while racing for the lead. The reigning champion believes if he had been more aggressive taking the lead away from Clint Bowyer, the race may have turned out differently.
