On the final restart of the night, Ryan Blaney soared past Kyle Busch to win the Food City 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway.

With six laps to go, Blaney was able to jet past Busch, who was dominant for the final 100 laps, to take home the victory in a race that was delayed for close to an hour due to rain. 

Blaney was lucky to still be in the race after he collided with Kyle Larson on lap 283, but Larson caught the brunt of the clash. 

Larson was in the mix for most of the race until he made contact with Blaney. The No. 42 bumped against the wall, spun down the track and was hit by Dylan Kwasniewski on the way down. 

In the points race, Elliott Sadler dropped some ground to the other contenders after he had a terrible night on a track that saw him go behind the wall with 35 laps to go. 

Points leader Chase Elliott finished in third place, while Ty Dillon and Regan Smith finished behind him in fourth and fifth respectively.
