Kyle Busch has won the Apache Warriors 400 presented by Lucas Oil on Sunday at Dover International Speedway in Dover, DE. Busch picked up his fourth win of the season.

In 26 career races at the track, he now has three wins. This is his second straight season with four wins.

Busch, who started in the second position, improved one position. He outlasted No. 24 Chase Elliott, who finished second.

Elliott had the lead with two laps to go. However, instead of Elliott winning for the first-time in his career, Busch used a late pass to get the win.

Busch has won back-to-back races. He has also won three of the past six races. Since July’s Pocono race, he’s won four of the past nine races.

Busch is now 18 points behind Martin Truex Jr. for the championship lead. Ryan Newman, Austin Dillon, Kasey Kahne and Kurt Busch have also been eliminated from championship contention.

Elliott improved ten positions to finish second. Jimmie Johnson, the seven-time champion, finished third.

Johnson needed to work through traffic to improve 14 spots from where he began the race.
