While the spotlight rightfully focused on Allmendinger’s masterful win, the race’s undertones had a dramatic subplot.

Kyle Busch, in his magnanimous spirit, didn’t hold back on praising Allmendinger, hailing him as the definitive “Mr. ROVAL.” And why not? With a winning record spanning five consecutive seasons at the ROVAL across various NASCAR series, Allmendinger’s prowess is undisputed.

“The resilience of the team is by far greater than mine, probably. I’ve put ourselves in a lot of bad spots and they’ve just come to work on Monday and battled through it and given us another good car to go the next week with,” Busch, the RCR star, said.

“So, a lot of it rides on me just getting sloppy, not doing a very good job and – I’m not making excuses – but trying to figure this car out, you know? I just lose the balance of it, did it again today. Was able to get a third out of it, but it probably would’ve been worse off than that if it wasn’t for the track position.”
