“Kyle (Busch) is a great race car driver,” said Jones. “I’ve raced him a lot and you obviously want to beat him to win, right? I know our first win at Daytona was great, but man, this one feels good. Just getting back to victory lane, showing we can do this continuously. Man, it was a lot of work.”
Busch ultimately finished in third after scraping the wall with five laps to go. With the third-place finish, he was able to clinch the regular-season championship as one race remains before the Playoffs.
Matt DiBenedetto (eighth) also finished in the top 10, his ninth top-10 finish of the season.
The NASCAR Cup Series heads next to Indianapolis Motor Speedway where drivers will close out the regular season on Sunday, September 8.
