Matt Kenseth earned a fourth-place finish, while Carl Edwards rebounded from being two laps down at one point to finish 11th and a late-race accident left Denny Hamlin back in 37th.

Busch started the No. 18 M&M’S Red Nose Day Toyota from the sixth position and was strong from the drop of the green flag as he raced his way into the top five. He would take his first lead of the day during a round of pit stops when crew chief Adam Stevens made the call for a two-tire stop on lap 26. Busch led the next 32 laps and he would race primarily inside the top five the remainder of the night. He would regain the lead with 37 laps remaining and held it through a couple of late restarts including the final one with 19 laps remaining. He would manage to hold that top spot through the restart and all the way to the finish despite pressure from the 4 car. The win was Busch’s third of the season and his first ever at Kansas Speedway.
