After 300 laps of the scheduled 400-lap distance in the Toyota Owners 400 on Saturday night, Kyle Busch led and looked as if he would add to his record of four consecutive wins in the spring race at Richmond (Va.) International Raceway.

But plenty changed for Busch, driver of the No. 18 M&M’s/Interstate Batteries® Toyota Camry for Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR), over the final 100 laps.

His car became part of the collateral damage from a wreck as Tony Stewart and Jimmie Johnson spun in front of Busch on lap 326. Busch was able to continue, but the damage sustained in the accident was too much to overcome. He ended up in a disappointing 24th place at the finish.

“We had a really good M&M’s Camry,” said Busch, who led once for 40 laps. “We got behind several guys with no tires on one of the restarts, and everyone was fighting for the bottom, and I just got freight-trained and shuffled back. Then Tony and Jimmie wrecked in front of me, and I tried to get to the bottom and I had nowhere to go. Just ended up in the wrong place at the wrong time, and that was it for our night.”
