Kyle Busch hasn’t been mentioned much during Sunday’s Consumers Energy 400 at Michigan International Speedway, but the driver of the No. 18 Toyota Camry came to life at the end of Stage 2 as he worked his way around his Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Martin Truex Jr. to lead the final lap of the Stage.
As Busch and Truex crossed the finish line, Austin Dillon, Daniel Hemric and Aric Almirola went crashing behind them.
Kurt Busch was third, Joey Logano ended the Stage in fourth and Erik Jones finished fifth.
Chase Elliott, Ryan Blaney, William Byron, Clint Bowyer and Paul Menard rounded out the top-10 in Stage 2.
Pole-sitter, and the man who has led the most laps so far in the race (67), Brad Keselowski spun near the end of Stage 2. The driver of the No. 2 will begin the final Stage two laps off of the pace.
