Kyle Busch came up short on his bid for the hat trick at Texas Motor Speedway last Sunday. Busch won both the Gander Outdoor Truck race and the Xfinity race, but the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup series win went to teammate Denny Hamlin, who now ties with Busch at two wins apiece. A pair of Stewart-Haas Fords finished second and third, with Clint Bowyer beating teammate Aric Almirola for the runner-up spot. Jimmie Johnson scored his best finish of the season in fifth with teammate William Byron in sixth, a good sign for the Hendrick Racing and the rest of the Chevy contingent.
