No. 51 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota Tundra Wins ‘Truck Series’

By -

Kyle Busch made it a perfect season in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series with his fifth win.

In the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series race, Kyle Busch closed out his 2019 Truck Series campaign going undefeated in his fifth and final race of the season at Charlotte Motor Speedway on May 17. After starting from the eighth position, Busch jumped to the front of the field on Lap 5, going on to lead 102 laps (of 134) to capture his eighth career-series win at the 1.5-mile track in the No. 51 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota Tundra.

“Everything had to come together and everything had to align to be able to do what we did here this year with going five for five,” said Busch. “It feels good.”

Tundra driver Brennan Poole captured a career-best second-place finish in his 10th Truck Series start while Toyota teammates Austin Hill (sixth), Todd Gilliland (seventh) and Anthony Alfredo (eighth) also finished in the top 10.

In the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series’  second non-points event of the season, Busch again led Toyota drivers, finishing third in the All-Star race. Busch led 15 laps (of 85) in the second stage of the four-stage event.

“We had a really fast M&M’s Camry,” said Busch. “I probably was the only guy to pass for the lead after a given set of laps. On restarts, we couldn’t go anywhere, we just weren’t fast enough, but we had long run speed. That’s all there is to it.”
