Kyle Busch overcame a pit road speeding penalty to score his first NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) win of the season – and 97th of his NASCAR career – with a last-lap pass at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

“I thought choosing the outside was the right way, but obviously it wasn’t. Those guys put up a whale of a fight tonight on restarts,” said Busch. “Overall, I really want to thank M&M’s and more importantly, want to wish the 2020 class from Appalachian State congratulations on getting their diplomas this year, it’s a little different I know, but hopefully this will lift your spirits a little bit. We won for you and took all the rest of those big houses down tonight. It was pretty cool to score a win here in Charlotte as always.”

Busch looked like he was going to drive away, but several late race cautions caused several restarts. Some of those incident’s took out fellow Supra drivers Austin Hill, Riley Herbst and Brandon Jones, who were all headed for solid finishes.
May 25, 2020, Kyle Busch swept all three stages despite starting 18th.
On the final restart, Austin Cindric was able to get past Busch, but Busch rallied on the last lap, clearing Cindric by turn three and driving to the win.  Harrison Burton continued his strong start to the season. He suffered damage in the last caution but was able to hold on to a ninth-place finish.
 
May 25, 2020. Harrison Burton’s stellar rookie campaign continued with yet another top 10 finish.

“Yeah, definitely up-and-down night, but our team never quit fighting so I’m really proud of that,” said Burton. “Our guys worked really, really hard to get us better. I’m proud of that for sure. I’m proud of our effort – starting bad and not quitting. We had a shot at the end.”
