Earlier in the race at Kansas, Kyle Busch reported an issue with his throttle. He fought hard all day long and clawed for Stage Points. To his credit, he earned 7 Stage Points. To bolster his comeback story, Busch thundered to 2nd place after pit stops with approximately 60 laps to go. At which point, he moved into 2nd. He stabilized in 2nd until a late-race restart when he lost 2nd to Chase Elliott.
