Kyle Busch began from the shaft in Saturday’s XFINITY Series race at Michigan International Speedway. However, he didn’t remain out front long in the Irish Hills 250.
Not long after the green banner dropped to begin the race, as the field headed into the first turn at the 2-mile track, Brad Keselowski hauled behind Busch’s No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota and seemed to touch him marginally — sending Busch for a long, wild ride through the infield grass.
Busch could come to pit road for repairs and restarted the race in 32nd, while Keselowski went ahead to win Stage 1 of the 125-lap occasion.
“It wasn’t what any of us wanted, but there’s nothing we can do about it now,” Keselowski disclosed to FOX Sports.
