Kurt Busch, who was suspended by NASCAR for the first three Sprint Cup Series races of the season, bounced all the way back on Sunday as he won the rain-delayed Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond International Raceway.
The victory was the first in over a year for Busch and his second since joining Stewart-Haas Racing prior to the 2014 season. The 2004 series champion led a race-best ??? laps at RIR.
It was career win No. 26 for Busch, who had to withdraw from the season-opening Daytona 500 and then sit out the next two races after he was accused of domestic abuse.
Finishing second was Kevin Harvick, Busch’s SHR teammate.
Third was Jimmie Johnson of Hendrick Motorsports.
