Kyle Busch Wins No. 59 in Texas
Kyle Busch scored his 59th-career NASCAR Gander Outdoors and RV Truck Series race victory Saturday night at Texas Motor Speedway. Busch led 72-laps on the way to victory in the Lonestar State.
Victory didn’t come without pressure, young teammate and TRD Development Driver Christian Eckes gave Busch a run for his money late in Stage Three of the 167-lap event. Eckes would finish second to Busch after leading 52 laps in the race.
“Overall, just real proud of the effort by Christian Eckes and that Safelite Autoglass Tundra that he’s driving with Rudy Fugle (Eckes crew chief) and those guys. They’re getting their chemistry better and better and they challenged for a win tonight,” Busch said. “Real proud of them, but wanted to go out on a high here with our Cessna Beechcraft Tundra. I want to thank Toyota, TRD, Incredible Bank, Rowdy Energy and all of our partners.”Kyle Busch
First top five for the HFR organization out on our own. Proud of all of our guys, thanks to Chris Larson Halmar, Drive to Beat Hunger, helping local food bank here in Texas and just good deal all around. We’ve got a lot of great product sponsors and a lot of great guys on the team, so this is almost a win for us.”
