Chase Elliott continues to be NASCAR’s road course king. And Kyle Busch won’t be defending his Cup Series title.
Elliott won his fourth consecutive road course race on Sunday with his second straight win at the Charlotte Roval. Busch, meanwhile, failed to advance to the third round of the playoffs and was eliminated from title contention along with Austin Dillon, Clint Bowyer and Aric Almirola.
Elliott had the best car at the Roval once again. A restart with 10 laps to go was no problem as he drove away from everyone else and beat Joey Logano by almost three seconds.
Erik Jones was third, Kurt Busch was fourth and Ryan Blaney finished fifth. Kyle Busch was running in the top 10 late in the race but had to pit for fuel with two laps to go.
The win is the third of 2020 for Elliott. He won at the Charlotte oval in May and then at the Daytona road course in August.
