“I still don’t understand why they black-flagged me.”

Busch, meanwhile, had some sympathy for Stewart, who led four times for a race-high 118 laps. Without the final caution, Busch said he didn’t have a chance at the win.

Stewart was phenomenal,” he said. “I hate it for him that we had a caution like that. He deserved to win the race. But I can’t say enough about us just getting our lucky break there and getting a chance to win.”

Busch also credited his Joe Gibbs Racing team for a strong final pit stop.

“Gave me a great pit stop, got me out front, gave me the lead so I could restart the race how I wanted to,” he said. “That was the win right there.”

Earnhardt, who couldn’t get close enough to Busch to challenge for the win, did move within five points of leader Greg Biffle. But Earnhardt also credited some late-race luck for his finish.

“Really happy to come home with second. We were running about fifth all night, and just got lucky on that restart to be on the inside and get a couple spots,” he said. “We just kind of got lucky there at the end on a couple things to gain a couple extra spots.”
