A million dollar All-Star Race victory for Kyle Busch
Kyle Busch finds a right time to score his first victory in the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season. He wins the All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway for the first time in a career and earns the $1 million first prize.
In the final 10-lap stage Busch’s #18 Toyota beats Chevrolets of Kyle Larson and Jimmie Johnson. Kyle Larson, winner of the first two 20-lap stages of the 70-lap non-points event, passed Johnson for second-place on the final lap.
Before the main event, some of the dramatic racing took place in the Monster Open, the 50-lap, three-stage qualifying race. Clint Bowyer and Ryan Blaney won the first two stages and advanced to the All-Star Race. Daniel Suarez won the final 10-lap stage while Chase Elliott was the final addition to the Monster Energy All-Star race field via the Fan Vote.
