Kyle Busch's Cup win moves him to title race

ISM Raceway- Flag stand

"Yeah, don't speed before that and you don't get caught back there in the back", said Elliott, who earlier had won the first stage of the race. Paul Menard and Cody Ware went to the rear after switching to backup cars.

"Yeah, it crossed my mind, and having him alongside of me for a restart", Busch said after the race. Timmy Hill later exited the race as his vehicle was leaking fluid. But Busch got the jump on the restart, and Almirola faded to fourth behind runner-up Brad Keselowski and third-place Kyle Larson. Truex won the race and the Cup title last season. By the time Logano crashed, Harvick had already moved to 19th in the field and back to the lead lap. However, shortly after the beginning of Stage 2, Playoff driver Joey Logano blew a tire through the speedway's dog-leg on the front straightaway.

And as has been well-documented, Busch has a hate-hate relationship with Keselowski.

Apparently some of the racing gods were looking out for Harvick, determining that no matter how egregious the infraction - one that has benched Harvick's crew chief and auto chief for the rest of the year - that a year with eight wins deserves a shot at the championship.

The 2014 champion is on a mission to lead his Stewart-Haas Racing team into the title race, prove they honestly are the best group in the garage, and that a wave of adversity can not unravel their success. Other short odds to prevail are Kyle Busch (+400), Martin Truex Jr.

After working his way forward and staying out on older tires, Busch was second for a restart on Lap 269. Kevin Harvick was running third with 30 laps to go and was comfortable in the points, but if Aric Almirola won the race, the No. 4 would be eliminated, with Almirola running down Harvick.

The final stage commenced on lap 158 as Busch continued to lead the field. Three laps later, Tanner Berryhill - making his Cup debut - spun to bring out the caution. The red flag was put out for 10 minutes. But his title hopes were dashed when Denny Hamlin collided with him on lap 270 to start a multicar accident. Being able to do what we did here today was certainly beneficial. I flat out got cleaned out.

Despite getting a win last week, a failed post-race inspection took away his spot in next week's finale and pushed him on the verge of missing out. Got nothing but respect for him and his guys.

"This is the best thing for me, for our team, to be able to know that we're ready to go for next week and we're as best prepared as we can possibly be".

Chase Elliott, a playoff contender, qualified second and was followed by Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Ryan Blaney and Alex Bowman, none of who are racing for the three remaining spots in the finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway. It was a really good year for our Haas Automation Ford. After a quick pit stop under caution, he was second for a restart on Lap 84 and grabbed the lead from Chase Elliott on the restart lap. "Especially since Chase ran so well all day". The yellow set up a 12-lap sprint that began on lap 300. But just when some were starting to count out the 2015 champion, Busch made the statement Sunday not to turn a blind eye on the Joe Gibbs Racing team.

Who will win the 2018 NASCAR Championship? If Almirola wins the race, it knocks Kevin Harvick from the final four and secures a championship group of Kyle Busch, Joey Logano, Martin Truex Jr. and ... Matt Kenseth, driving his next-to-last career race, finished seventh. Kurt Busch was racing for the lead and win late in the race, when he was involved in a crash with Denny Hamlin, which also took out Chase Elliott.

Busch tweeted, "We're heading home with a trophy, then on to Miami to race for a championship!". After Sunday's race, the championship-eligible field will be trimmed from eight to the four drivers who will race for a title November 18 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Truex enters as the defending champion and race victor.
