As the first driver on the track for the second round, he set the tone with three mistake-free laps and a solid pit stop.

"It's just so tough here at Charlotte", Busch said.

The win instead went to Kyle Busch, his first in a Cup vehicle at Charlotte. Kyle Busch won the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Friday night after leading 90 of the 134 laps. I really felt like we were in a great situation, even though I didn't have control of that final restart. Kyle Busch started behind Keselowski and with fresher tires was able to pass him for the lead on the first lap. I can't say enough about (crew chief) Adam Stevens and these guys on the pit box.

When the No. 42 was out front, Larson was untouchable.

And Busch led all but the first 200 yards or so of the final segment. The win Saturday was worth $1 million. There's reason to celebrate and reason to celebrate big. "This race was kind of born off of exciting events that were in the race and bold moves, and we did one of those to win the race". He was stymied by a slow final pit stop that prevented him from restarting on the front row. "That was pretty much the difference", Larson said.

"As you look at the lap, we probably could have run a couple tenths faster there, but, all in all, our goal was to not make any huge mistakes", Harvick said. "That was the only victory lane that he stood in the entire time-he was there for the whole half-hour, 45 minutes we were there, even as the auto was taken off for inspection he continued to stay".

It was Sauter's third second place finish of the season.

"The wins that I had before, he would come in and shake everybody's hand and take off", Earnhardt Jr. said. "I saw a million dollars out the windshield and I drove too hard". In an effort to give teams more strategy with a million bucks on the line, NASCAR and Goodyear will be bringing the "Option" tire for the first time. Generally speaking the option tires provided short bursts of speed but their use was negligible in the outcome of the race.

Chase Elliott was seventh, having qualified for an All-Star spot after winning the online fan vote, while Penske's Keleslowski and Joey Logano were next up.

Throughout the 70-lap race, there were no cautions, but there were three lead changes among four drivers.

Truex Jr.is second in the NASCAR standings.

The softer tires have at least one fan among NASCAR drivers in the form of Kyle Larson. He has been at his best at the 1.5-mile ovals, compiling a 10.2 average finish and ranking third in both dominator stats.

Keselowski failed to receive any benefit from the softer compound tires. "I couldn't see where the asphalt turned to grass, but I was just trying to make a move around the 24". That put us in a good position in Segment 2, then we won Segment 3. Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender Chase Briscoe - now fourth in the points standings on the strength of five top-five showings - attempts to continue his ascent up the standings. But if a driver opts to uses them in the race's final segment, then they start at the rear of the field. The tires had to be brand-new when put on the auto, and NASCAR ruled even used only under caution, the tires no longer were allowed. They earned the spots based on average finishing position.
