In Atlanta, it was a brother 1-2 finish with Kurt Busch emerging as the surprise winner. As well as Kurt bested his brother Kyle Busch last Sunday, it’s uncommon these days to see him do that. Amazingly, Kurt didn’t lead more than 144 laps in a Cup race since 2015 at Richmond, in which he led 291 laps.
The hits keep coming for Kyle Larson, as he picked up his third straight Cup Series victory last Sunday at Nashville. Larson didn’t waste much time inhaling the first four drivers after qualifying as deep as fifth. After 300 laps, he led 264 of them.
Numerous teams are getting a break on Monday (only eight games in total), and rain is in the forecast for several games on the main slate. However, it looks like clear skies for the 8:05 p.m. EDT trio of games that make up Monday Night Turbo.
Coming off two straight Cup victories, Kyle Larson continues to pour it on. While this latest All-Star victory does Larson no good in terms of Series points, it was still impressive to see him work through a completely different format from the rest of the cup schedule. This week, the Money Train delves into the DFS options for Sunday’s Cup Series event in Nashville, TN.
