Kyle Busch started from the back of the field after officially winning the pole, due to and engine change. He worked his way through a race that was punctuated with a record 14 cautions and then moved into the lead with 57 laps to go and remained close to the front until lap 22 when he took the lead for good. Kyle held off a hard-charging Clint Bowyer by .411-seconds to capture the checkered flag during the Shelby 427 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
