So, what was the first question posed to Kyle Busch in the post-race presser?
What happened in front of you between Joey Logano and Denny Hamlin?
The truth be told, Busch likely would have passed both Logano and Hamlin on the final lap even if they hadn't done their best Cole Trickle and Rowdy Burns impersonations. Busch had the high line - the fastest speeds were high all day - and zoomed by the 22 and 11 cars as they banged doors, quarter panels and bumpers. The result was a devastating injury to Hamlin, a fortunate third-place finish for Logano and a checkered-flag bow for Rowdy Busch.
"Those guys went to racing each other really hard, which is what this sport is all about and what's great about NASCAR," said Busch, whose last victory came on April 28 of last year at Richmond. "I did win the race today, by the way, so that might be a story. But I'm sure it's not."
