NASCAR penalized the No. 18 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series team after a safety violation during events last weekend at Dover International Speedway.

Crew chief Adam Stevens, tire changer Jacob Seminara and tire carrier Kenneth Barber were suspended from all NASCAR Series Championship Points Events for four races after a tire came off the Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota driven by Kyle Busch during the AAA 400 Drive for Autism.

Kyle Busch was chasing down Austin Dillon in the closing laps, but he came up short and finished the Coke 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway in second.

Busch led 63 laps and was coming off an All-star win, but he has not yet won a points’ paying race on this track. This was his third consecutive top-five of the season, however, with a third at Talladega SuperSpeedway and fifth at Kansas Speedway in the past two weeks.

Last fall, Kyle Busch finished sixth in the Bank of America 500, which was the first time in his last three attempts at Charlotte Motor Speedway that he cracked the top 10.

Busch came close in the 2015 Coke 600 with an 11th, but his fall 2015 attempt and last May managed a best of 20th. Busch has been mostly strong on this course, but he lacks consistency and has not strung four consecutive top-10s together since 2010.

Jimmie Johnson won the battle off pit road in the final stop, but he got snookered on the restart and lost the lead to a more determined Kyle Busch.

Johnson said he had to be a little patient because he could not jump the leader. That lost him the lead and clean air took care of the rest.

Kyle Busch will aim for his third consecutive top-10 in NASCAR’s All-star race this weekend.

Busch finished sixth in 2015 and was 10th last year. What Busch would really like to achieve is his third career top-five. His two previous ones cane in 2011 and 2012.
May 20 - 3:03 PM

Kyle Busch will line up on the outside of the front row for the All-star race with a speed of 112.636 mph, which is 1/100ths of a second slower than Kyle Larson.

This is the type of race that often benefits Busch. His petal-to-the-metal style of racing means that he can easily get to the front. Unfortunately, it also results in more than his share of accidents.
