Raybestos, Joe Gibbs Racing dominate at Bristol
The Raybestos-equipped Joe Gibbs Racing Toyotas were the class of the field at Bristol, as Kyle Busch drove the No. 18 Snickers Toyota into Victory Lane on Sunday after leading 378 of 503 laps. Busch was followed by Denny Hamlin, who posted a second place finish for Joe Gibbs in the No. 11 FedEx Toyota.
It was the second NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victory of the season for Busch and the No. 18 Toyota, which enjoys the on-track advantage of the complete Raybestos brand racing brakes package – including racing calipers, rotors and high-friction race pads. Every Joe Gibbs Racing Sprint Cup car is equipped with both Raybestos brand brake systems and Raybestos Advanced Technology Chassis parts.
The victory was especially satisfying for Busch and the JGR team considering their recent history at Bristol. After the driver lost his power steering while leading at Bristol last spring, Busch was then bumped from in front by Carl Edwards last August after leading 415 laps.
