With AP Photos.Martin Truex Jr. says his return to his championship-winning race team is dependent on sponsorship.

Busch arrived at Bristol trying to add to his career 21 national victories on the bullring. Busch once won three consecutive times on the Tennessee track and was considered the best in the business on the concrete oval. Kyle Busch was third on a track that he's mastered throughout his career.

Larson has won four of the six Xfinity Series races he has entered this season. "Kyle Busch is a moron", Sherry Polex wrote on Twitter.

"Half [Busch's] fault, half my fault for following the 14 [of Bowyer] so long", Truex said after the incident.

Lots of rumors swirled about the No. 41 Ford past year at this time as well, but Busch eventually ended up returning to SHR.

A loose wheel after his first pit stop mired Larson in traffic and out of sequence, and then contact on a restart hampered into using an older set of tires for the last run of the race.

Larson turned a lap at 127.792 miles per hour Friday in qualifying at Bristol Motor Speedway.

"I think they're fine", Busch said. "I always wanted to get to 30 (wins)".

"I'm starting to hear rumors", Truex said.

The ninth driver to win this season, Kurt Busch earned a spot in the 16-driver playoff field. It's something we all want to keep going and just need a little bit of time to let the dominoes fall into place and see if we can keep it going.

The victory was the 13th for Stewart-Haas Racing since it joined Ford last season, and the 100th Cup victory for the Fusion.

Kyle Busch wound up 20th.

BRISTOL, Tenn. - NASCAR champion Martin Truex Jr. needs sponsorship to stay with his championship-winning race team. "I feel bad about that".

LOCKED IN: Although they have yet to win a Cup race this season, Larson, Ryan Blaney and Brad Keselowski scored enough points to clinch berths in the playoffs. "I hated that I clipped him, I know he could have had a good shot to win the race too". Instead, he had two eventful races and left the track without a win and with a fight.

Truex was running in second when he crashed with 69 laps remaining and ended up placing 30th.

"We had this one incident, and obviously, it was totally his fault, but I guarantee you he didn't do it on objective", said Truex. "This place has been so hard on us". "I mean, I can't even explain it to you how good we've run here in the past three or four years and crap like this every single time".

Truex was frustrated but never blamed Busch. I should've knocked his butt out of the way because he held me up for 15, 20 laps and burnt my front tires off screwing with him. "Played too nice and got the crappy end of the stick". He believes that could change Saturday night.

"The biggest thing for us as a group (is) we've kind of been in this situation before", he said.

UP NEXT: The Cup Series is off next weekend and races again September 2 in the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway in SC.
