Kyle Busch finally got the 2020 win he wanted so bad. His younger Kurt Busch brother held his nerve in a tight final lap which saw off a good challenge from Martin Truex Jr. to win the NASCAR Cup Series race at Texas Motor Speedway.
The 35-y-o earned his first victory of the 2020 season to kept his streak going of at least one win in 16 consecutive NASCAR Cup Series seasons.
“I was so nervous. I was nervous a little bit the whole last run. I’ve been in this position so many times. The last three laps though, that’s like winning the championship. That’s how nervous it was. I can’t believe it,” Busch said on the track after the win.
The victory took such a long time to come and demanded so much from Kyle on the wet track.

Busch on running out fuel – “It ran out, coming right in here to do a burnout. So I had enough to do a little bit of a burnout,” Busch said
Kyle Busch vowed to come back next year and fight for the championship again.
“We’re ready to fight next year, we’ll be back,” Busch affirmed.
