Kyle Busch Wins Atlanta 2024 In NASCAR Chevy Truck: Video

Kyle Busch is the winningest driver in Truck Series history for a reason. Even though he sold his racing team last year, he took control of the No. 7 NASCAR Chevy Silverado RST for Spire Motorsports at Atlanta on February 24th, 2024 and guided the race truck right to Victory Lane.

Busch snagged the lead from Grant Enfinger’s No. 9 Silverado on Lap 129 of 135. He held off the No. 98 Ford F-150 of Ty Majeski and the No. 11 Toyota TRD Tundra of Corey Heim heading to the checkered flag, winning by 0.187 seconds. Enfinger, meanwhile, finished 25th as his race truck suffered a flat tire.

“I actually got a run on the 9 truck [Enfinger] down the backstretch,” Busch, recounting the pass that handed him the win. “He must have been going flat down the backstretch and slowing down because it gave me – it sucked me up right to him. Then he got loose in the corner. I got loose in the corner. We all checked up trying not to crash.”

He added, “Thankfully, we didn’t. I thought that was a big moment. But then we got the lead right there, and after that, it was about trying to protect it. Majeski was a bit of a wing man today. Appreciate him… That was a lot of fun. Great to get Chevrolet to Victory Lane.”

Meanwhile, another NASCAR Chevy team didn’t have much to brag about at Atlanta. Christian Eckes had a strong No. 19 Silverado and likely would have been able to challenge Busch at the end for the win, but after winning Stage 1, he slid through his pit box as his brake pedal went to the floor. He ultimately had to retire due to brake issues, finishing 32nd – second to last.
