Kyle Busch Returns to Victory Lane in Pocono

Busch snaps a 36-race winless streak with his first career victory at Pocono.

Kyle Busch won the Overton’s 400 from Pocono Raceway on Sunday for his first victory of 2017.

Busch dominated the first stage of the race, but he fell behind during the second and final stages.  After making his final pit stop, he was able to run down the leaders to get to victory lane.

Busch has run well this season, but had failed to reach victory lane before Sunday.  Busch said he was happy to finally return to victory lane after a 36-race winless streak.

“It’s pretty cool, finally being able to get the monkey off our back, get to Victory Lane this year,” Busch said.  “It feels really good to finally capitalize on finally having a fast car.”

Busch won for the first time at Pocono on Sunday, and the 39th time in his career.  Busch said he was happy to check another track off his list.

“We’ve been really close at a lot of these tracks to continually make history, but haven’t been able to do so this year,” Busch said.

“”Hopefully it just kind of snowballs from here and we’re able to continue with wins.”

Kevin Harvick finished second on Sunday after giving up the lead with 20 laps to go.  Harvick said his car wasn’t fast enough to hold off Busch on fresher tires.

“There was no battle, he was way faster than we were,” Harvick said.  “Got to us, got around us, gone.”

“He was in a league of his own there at the end.”
