Kyle Busch achieved his goal: Win the Bristol Dirt Race. Busch was a bit lucky and stressed that victory was the most important thing. “We got one, you know? It doesn’t matter how you get them, it’s all about getting them.
I mean, man, I feel like Dale Earnhardt Sr. right now. This is awesome. I didn’t do anything,”.- Busch said, as quoted by firstsportz. It is clear that there is a good atmosphere in the team and that everyone is working to the maximum.
“Yeah, we backed into that one didn’t we. Sure, feels good just to get a win. It’s been a little bit of a long time here, but overall, just a great day. Really appreciate it – just proud of the guys. They work hard.
We all work hard. We all work way too hard. There are not a lot of rewards in the sport except winning. You could come home with a second-place day and not get everything that you wanted from the day and from what you put into it.
It’s always good when you win,” Kyle Busch said Contact between Briscoe and Reddick helped him win at the end of the race, although he didn’t have such a good pace at first. ‘It was awesome to keep pace with those two.
I don’t know why our car would not refire after the rain both times I was leading on the first big rain delay coming back and I fell to eighth and I was able to drive back through on the long run and get back into position.
Then on that once again, same thing, and I fell off and couldn’t hang. It got me about 20 laps to get going, but overall, just great to get back in victory lane,” Kyle Busch added.
Joey Logano after the race
Joey Logano also had a good race but not enough to win.
Still he was happy with 3rd place. “We’ll take that. We weren’t fast enough obviously to win. We had great execution on restarts and kept ourselves towards the front. Paul made a good call leaving us out. The tire was coming apart there at the end, but we did what we had to do to stay towards the front.
" He also explained his tactics and is ready for the next races. "The track position was so big. It’s so hard to pass and I felt like if I could just get towards the front, I could try to hold them all off and that’s what we did with our Mustang,” Joey Logano said.
“We were able to get a top-three finish with our Shell/Pennzoil car. It’s OK. We’ll take it. It’s not a win, but we’ve been stringing together some good finishes the last couple of weeks,” Joey Logano added.
