Kyle Busch matches Hornaday for career Truck Series wins — NASCAR in Brief

Kyle Busch and his Joe Gibbs Racing team were in sync everywhere on the track but victory lane. After a brief red flag, the field was lined up for what was hoped to be the final restart, however, the race was sent into overtime when Ricky Stenhouse and Aric Almirola had an incident in turn one.

Yes, that's one for the win at Pocono Raceway and six for the total this season.

Kyle Busch had no one to bump him out of the lead this week and stormed from the bottom half of the field Sunday at Pocono Raceway on the way to his sixth NASCAR Cup victory of the season.

Instead it'll be Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Suarez, who had a time of 176.988, who will be out front when the race begins around 2:30 p.m. Sunday.

"You keep reaching higher up the ladder and you keep reaching more milestone drivers", Busch said. I was better than the 18 (Busch). It's awesome to be able to tie him. "We have good momentum right now on our side, and hopefully we can keep that going".

For the most part, Elliott has driven a 10th-place vehicle all season, the most consistent of the bunch but they're inching closer towards the top-five.

"They know what the tolerances are and they were out of tolerance", NASCAR COO Steve Phelps said. "Both of them were real talented, that's for sure".

Harvick and Busch posted the two fastest laps in Saturday's qualifying session, but their times were disallowed because of subsequent inspection failures-along with those of 11 other drivers.

Busch also won for the 191st time over the Cup, Xfinity and Truck Series. "You have to keep ahead of it to show that you have the stuff to get it done".

"Suarez, man, I can't say enough about my teammate", Busch said.

He has Cup wins this year at Texas, Bristol, Richmond, Charlotte and Chicagoland.

Busch swept the three races - the only racer to accomplish that. The top 10 finishers in stage one were #9 Chase Elliott, #4 Kevin Harvick, #11 Denny Hamlin, #18 Kyle Busch, #19 Daniel Suarez, #14 Clint Bowyer, #2 Brad Keselowski, #41 Kurt Busch, #88 Alex Bowman, #12 Ryan Blaney rounded out the top 10.

The only quibble with all this success?

Aussie supermarket chain Coles to provide free 'reusable' plastic bags indefinitely
Rival Aldi never supplied free bags, instead charging customers 15¢ for heavy duty Aldi-branded plastic bags. He landed another joke later on, while Steve was questioning the accuracy of Dee's quoted statistics.

"I've screwed it up here a lot", said Harvick, who could pin this screw up on his team.

He would have started second if he and Harvick had passed inspection, but in a sport of inches, or moments, Busch avoided trouble and went on to win the race, outdueling teammates Daniel Suarez and Erik Jones in two late-race restarts.

Wallace escaped serious injury when his auto lost its brakes and slammed into the wall. A tense minute passed before Wallace lowered his window net; he was conscious and able to move within the auto. He retook control in Joe Gibbs Racing's No. 20 auto, going low to beat Justin Allgaier -the victor of the June race at Iowa.

"That was a huge hit", he said. It's cool to have my mom with me and starting on the pole. That scared the hell out of me.

"Everything was good. They gave me an ultrasound-no twins or anything, so I'm good".

It didn't take long for Harvick, a six-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series victor this season, to race his way to the front.

"It definitely changed the course of the race", Adam Stevens, Busch's crew chief, said of the Toyotas pitting en masse before the end of Stage 2. We were running really well and then got hit in a pit stop. "We're all back and forth".

There are just five races left before the 16-driver playoff field is set. I think he continues his great 2018 season with another win today. Joens led the race until lap 65 when #4 Kevin Harvick took over the race lead for the first time. Harvick is 0 for 8 at Kentucky and 0 for 35 at Pocono.

Xfinity Series: Christopher Bell made history Saturday at Iowa Speedway - even though almost everything that could go against him did down the stretch.

In early June, Busch won the Xfinity race in the mountains of Pennsylvania, and he started this weekend by winning the Gander Outdoors 150 truck race.

Coming off victories in Kentucky and New Hampshire, Bell led 94 of 257 laps. Here are the drivers we like to contend for the victory.

"When it's your day, it's your day", Bell said.

"I strive to get better at each and every racetrack". He retook control in Joe Gibbs Racing's No. 20 vehicle, going low to beat Justin Allgaier - the victor of the June race at Iowa.
