First Data 500 – Martinsville Speedway – 10/29/2017
Kyle Busch (#18 M&Ms Toyota) took the first round of eight win at Martinsville Speedway! The final laps built tension and a possible feud going forward as Chase Elliott out in front was bumped and spun in the wall by Denny Hamlin. The overtime start put Busch up against Hamlin and Martin Truex Jr. The final front stretch drag race had the #18 racing the outside of the #78 as the #11 was pushed back early on the white lap. Busch crossed the line as a pile up fired up behind him at turn one. Fans got the bang for their Martinsville buck with an exciting finish under the new lights at the historic short track!
