Last lap finishes have provided Atlanta Motor Speedway fans something to cheer about and today's EasyCare Vehicle Service Contracts 200 continued the trend.
Kyle Busch had a dominant truck throughout the event and using late race pit strategy, where he pitted for tires during the last caution of the race, lined him up eighth for the final restart.
Busch made his way through the traffic and battled leader Jack Sprague for the win. Coming to the checkered flag, Busch tried the high side and when Sprague tried to block him, Sprague's truck got out of shape and collected Bobby Labonte, Johnny Benson and Todd Kluever.
NASCAR had to review the finish video footage to determine the top-five finishing order, but Busch claimed his third win of the season in only eight starts in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series.
"The last lap today is one that no one will forget for the rest of the year," said an elated Busch. "It is a shame to see my favorite Chevy Silverado torn upâ€¦.He knew he didn't have a shot to win because with my fresh tires, there was no way he was going to be able to hold me off for one more corner. I faked going into his inside through the corner and he got a bit loose and started sliding up the race track, then he drove up right into my door. I had already committed to the topside; he forced us up into the outside wall. I looked in my mirror and saw all the stuff happening and I saw that there was no one around me, that I was going to come across first and that was all that mattered at that point in time."
