Busch finished third in the Ambetter Health 400 NASCAR Cup Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway Sunday evening.
The Richard Childress Racing star led six times for 28 laps and spent a lot of time battling at the front. Busch would secure Top 5 track position in stage 3 and hold it until the end. He would engage in a three-way battle for the win with Daniel Suarez
and Ryan Blaney
in the closing laps. Busch would thread the needle into the middle groove to make for a 3-wide finish. The driver of the No. 8 Chevrolet would fall just fractions short of the win and be credited with third-place in a photo finish.
