A race much different than last weekend at Daytona International Speedway saw Kyle Busch take the lead with 20 laps to go to steal his 87th career victory in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, and second straight victory in the Xfinity Series at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Cup regulars dominated the race today leading the entirety of the 163-lap race. Cup regulars Brad Keselowski, Kyle Larson, and Kevin Harvick finished in the top-5 with Elliott Sadler being the only Xfinity Series Regular finishing fifth.
Harvick led the most laps with 64 laps led, while Keselowski led 53.
Some rookies were able to stand out following a disappointing weekend at Daytona last weekend. William Byron was the best of the bunch in seventh. Daniel Hemric was able to pull a consistent weekend gaining top-10 finishes in both segments and ultimately finishing ninth. Cole Custer was able to gain more track time this weekend obtaining a 10th-place finish, and his third career top-10 finishing ninth.
Only one driver didn’t finish today’s race due to damage and that was the no. 11 of Blake Koch who crashed on lap two while trying to avoid a spinning Ty Dillon. He would leave Atlanta with a very disappointing 40th place finish.
