2007 Bristol Win
The 2007 Food City 500 was the beginning of a new era in NASCAR. 160,000 fans packed into Bristol Motor Speedway, the track’s 50th consecutive sellout, to witness the first race of the brand new “Car of Tomorrow.” Kyle Busch worked his way from 20th place at the start all the way to second place behind Denny Hamlin with 70 laps to go.
With 15 laps to go, Busch capitalized on teammate Jimmie Johnson’s misfortune when the leaders had to take evasive action to avoid Johnson as his right front tire blew. Through the chaos, Busch was able to steal the lead from Hamlin.
After a brief caution, Kyle Busch held off faster drivers on fresher tires until the 15th caution of the turbulent day fell with 3 laps to go – bringing a hard charging Jeff Burton right up to Busch’s bumper for a green-white-checkered shootout to the finish.
Two all-out laps later, Busch beat the veteran Burton to the checkered flag in a side by side finish for his fourth career win, earning Chevrolet their record 600th win in NASCAR premier series competition.
After Bristol, chassis 5-411 was taken westward to Phoenix where Kyle Busch battled from 24th to 7th. A few weeks later, it ran again at Richmond where Busch qualified a lowly 34th and amazingly earned a second-place finish! The car was campaigned for the final time in the Bristol night race, where Busch again qualified 20th at “Thunder Valley,” then made his way to a ninth place finish at the end of the night – making it a perfect four top-10 results in four races for chassis 5-411.
