Kyle Busch wins NASCAR trucks race after earlier Xfinity DQ

Kyle Busch wins NASCAR trucks race after earlier Xfinity DQ”

Per a NASCAR release, "Busch's auto was found out of compliance with the height requirements, according to the NASCAR Rule Book".

Busch drove off to his 98th win at Texas Motor Speedway.

"Technically, I haven't won yet, so put it over the sticks", Busch quipped when he got out of his truck at the start-finish line to gather another checkered flag after the nightcap race.

The 2nd place finisher, Austin Cindric has been handed the win.

The disqualification continues a rough 2020 campaign for the reigning Cup Series champion, who has yet to win a race in his primary gig and now sits outside the top ten in points.

The 21-year-old Cindric, son of Team Penske president Tim Cindric, said he had already changed back into street clothes in his hauler when he noticed everybody still around the No. 54 auto.

"Obviously great to get the Money Lion Ford Mustang in Victory Lane no matter how it happens", Cindric said.

"I felt like we had a shot to do that today". "But fast race cars and being in position, that's where it counts".

Busch had a comfortable lead over Eckes after the pit cycle, but a crash with 15 laps to go on the backstretch involving Todd Gilliland and Ben Rhodes slowed the field and set up a 10-lap dash to the finish between Busch and Eckes. It's the second time this season he has led the most laps but not earned the trophy. Consequently, he was dropped down to thirty-seventh and last place.

"I'd like an explanation, because that's been the same way we've done it now for as long as I've been in NASCAR", Allgaier said. They stayed side-by-side for more than two laps, with Busch and Eckes each leading a lap as they battled for the lead. He led 156 laps at Bristol, Tenn.in June but finished 18th.

The Team Penske driver Cindric, who swept a doubleheader weekend at Kentucky Speedway last week, originally finished less than a second behind Busch, but the finishing order was corrected to show Cindric the victor and Xfinity Series championship leader Chase Briscoe the race runner-up.

The last Xfinity race victor to be disqualified was Denny Hamlin at Darlington Raceway.

"I've got more wins on ovals than road course".

"I'll take it", he said. "It's great to be able to capitalize on fast race cars", Cindric said. "We'll go back to the lab and try to get better".

Finally with eight laps left Busch was able to use a strong run through turns one and two to pull clear of Eckes at the front of the field. "We've just got to keep building on that". Afterward during his pit road interview with NBC Sports, the reigning Cup Series champion was asked how he managed to continue competing and salvage the race. Gragson said on the radio that there was no contact.

"We were just learning the track here at Texas, first time at this speedway and got absolutely drove through by the 9 (Gragson) vehicle", Herbst said. Just got to be a little bit better to beat him.
