While leading the second duel, Kyle Busch spun off the nose of Daniel Suarez who was pushing in the draft.

What’s happening?

Midway through Thursday night’s duel in his new Richard Childress No. 8 Camaro, Kyle Busch was hit too hard from behind by Daniel Suarez. Busch hit the wall and spun multiple times as the field passed, collecting five other drivers including open entrants Travis Pastrana and Austin Hill. The damage Pastrana and Hill sustained paved the way for Conor Daly to race his way in to the 500.

What You Need to Know:

  • Daniel Suarez initiated contact that spun Kyle Busch into the wall.
  • The wreck took out 2 of the 3 open entrants in the race.
  • The lightning rod driver had victory lane expectations, but the crash damage means Busch will have more to overcome.

Main Characters

He went further in his infield interview, voicing his frustration with the aggression.

From the other side of the incident, Suarez took responsibility for the carnage.

Suarez doubled down on his accountability and said after a conversation with Kyle that he learned some things for Sunday.

After Suarez took accountability for the error, fans voiced their support for the Trackhouse racer.

From the Pressbox

Bob Pockrass gives fans insight into the ramifications of the wreck for Kyle and his team.

Busch felt confident in that particular No. 8 Camaro. So in addition to starting at the rear of the 500 field, he will also be playing catch-up with a backup car’s setup and tune.
