NASCAR Heads To Dover

Kyle Busch gambled on fuel and won under caution in double overtime at Talladega, becoming the third two-time winner through 10 races this season as the NASCAR Cup series heads to the Monster Mile at Dover Speedway this Sunday.


The race featured 57 lead changes, the last coming when leader Bubba Wallace's third block of Ryan Blaney caused a race-ending crash. 


Busch joined William Byron and Kyle Larson as two-time winners this year. 


Blaney finished second, followed by Chase Briscoe, Chris Buescher and Brad Keselowski. Christopher Bell remains the points leader with Ross Chastain five behind and Kevin Harvick 15 off the pace. Larson is fourth, Busch is eighth and Byron 15th.


Practice and qualifying are at 9:30 central time Saturday.


Jeb Burton won in double overtime at Talladega, his second career victory and second on the biggest oval on the circuit in a race marred by multiple crashes and now the XFinity Series joins the Cup racers in Dover, Delaware. 


Burton also won at Talladega in 2021. Burton led both overtime restarts. The race had 12 cautions and two red-flag stoppages and took nearly three hours to complete. Only 19 of the 38 entries finished on the lead lap. 


Sheldon Creed finished second and Parker Kligerman was third as Chevrolet swept the podium. Cole Custer was fourth as the top Ford and won the Dash 4 Cash $100,000 bonus.


Practice and qualifying are this afternoon at 2 pm central time.


The Craftsman Truck Series resumes next week at Kansas Motorspeedway.
