There are just three races left until the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series playoffs begins, which means that points are at a premium beginning tonight at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Toyota claimed the top-four positions in the finishing order with Busch's Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Denny Hamlin and Matt Kenseth taking third and fourth, respectively.

The victory also brings Busch's career win total at NASCAR's top three levels to a whopping 180.

Next Up: The Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race at 7:30 p.m. ET on NBC Saturday night.

Kyle Larson is coming into the race red hot, as he won the Pure Michigan 400 last week for the third consecutive time, including both races held there this season.

It was single domination on Wednesday during the NCWTS race for Kyle Busch. He completed the sweep at Bristol Motor Speedway in 2010 as well and was one race away from doing so again in 2013. "This was the first shot that I really had to come really close to it in the Cup Series". The delayed race was won by Jimmie Johnson for his second victory of the season after he started in 11th place and led 81 of the race's 500 laps.

United aim to build on formidable start
Man United were not brilliant during 75 minutes, but shook off any nervousness with three swift goals. Well, that doesn't look to be a problem anymore.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. finished 13th, one lap down, in his first Xfinity race since a win at Richmond in April of 2016. "I made a mistake and hit the wall with about 50 to go and it kind of tightened my auto up a little too much. We weren't good and we weren't going to fix it on pit road either".

The penalty dropped him back to 19th position at the outset of the second stage on Lap 95. Last year: Kevin Harvick won despite starting 24th.

"So I'm really proud of this Monster Energy Ford - to be first in class, to get a top-five in my 600th start, and to see the lead with 50 to go". Logano does have two wins at Bristol and has recorded top-10 finishes in each of his last four finishes at the track.

Busch was first off pit road but restarted seventh.

But polesitter Kyle Busch had a checkered flag-seeking missile, and after a restart with eight of 300 laps left, he crossed the finish line 1.181 seconds ahead of Suarez. Logano was able to get back onto the lead lap and had moved up to 10th by the time the eighth and final caution came out on Lap 285.

Joey Logano is competing in an Xfinity Series race for the ninth time in 2017. The Cup Series resumes at Darlington Raceway for the September 3 race that celebrates throwback eras of NASCAR.
