DOVER, Del. – Kyle Busch had his chance for a Dover three-peat end on lap 125 of Sunday’s FedEx 400 Benefiting Autism Speaks.

Busch started the weekend with victories in Friday’s Camping World Truck Series race and Saturday’s Nationwide Series event.

He started Sunday’s Sprint Cup Series finale from outside the front row and had a strong car until things went sour on lap 125.

Busch made contact with Clint Bowyer and then slammed hard into the outside wall severely damaging his Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota. Busch was extremely angry with Bowyer and chased him under caution before finally pulling into the garage area.

He left the garage without commenting on the incident.

But the day did include one milestone for Busch who became the 15th driver in NASCAR history to lead 10,000 laps in the Sprint Cup Series.

Bowyer, who was also involved in a late race tangle with Matt Kenseth in the final run to the finish line, felt bad about what transpired with Busch.

"I hated that with Kyle," said Bowyer. "We're teammates with the manufacturer. It was a bad deal. I thought I was clear. He kind of got up there, and I thought he was going to give it to me, and he didn't. It ruined his day and certainly didn't help mine."
