Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Kyle Busch and Erik Jones were up front at the start of the O’Reilly Auto Parts 300 NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Texas Motor Speedway on Friday night, and they up front at the end, with Busch claiming his fourth win in five starts this season and Jones taking second. It also was Busch’s eighth Xfinity win at Texas. He dominated the race, leading 150 laps of the 200-lap race distance, while Jones led 12. The only other lap leader was Kyle Larson, who ran up front for 38 laps.
“Good calls from the pit box for sure,” Busch said was the reason for the win. “Chris Gayle (crew chief), he got his money’s worth tonight. He had to work on this thing for me and make it better all night long. The NOS Energy Drink Camry had speed, but there through the middle part of the race, Erik Jones caught me and when Larson was ahead of me at that point. We fine-tuned and worked on our balance a little bit, but overall, this is so good and cool for these guys. I appreciate everyone at JGR’s Xfinity shop, JGR engines, Toyota, again, NOS Energy Drink and Xfinity and the fans.”
