RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – Kyle Busch has won at Richmond for the sixth time in his career by holding off a hard-charging Kevin Harvick in the NASCAR Cup series playoff race.
It is Busch’s 50th career win.
Busch earns the Richmond sweep as he won the spring race earlier this season.
Busch passed Brad Keselowski with 38 laps to go and earned his season-best seventh win of the year.
Harvick closed a gap of more than 1.5 seconds over the final few laps, but Busch held on for his sixth career victory at Richmond.
Martin Truex Jr. swept the first two stages before a penalty forced him to rally for a third-place finish, followed by Chase Elliott and Aric Almirola.
