Busch has six straight series victories dating to last season and 40 overall in 120 starts. The Sprint Cup driver led the final 55 laps in the 150-lap race. He also won at the 1.5-mile track in 2011.

"Really proud of Kyle Busch Motorsports finishing 1-2," Busch said. "It's a great testament for everything we've gone for and strived for. ... Qualifying 1-2 and finishing 1-2, I think I was more pumped for having a 1-2 finish, than winning, honestly."

Wallace, the winner two weeks ago at Gateway in Madison, Illinois, finished 1.844 seconds behind Busch.

Wallace shook his head sideways when asked if he thought he had a chance to beat Busch on a late restart.

"He knew what he was doing," Wallace said. "He's so cool to work with. He's so good."

Kyle Busch Motorsports drivers have won nine of the series' last 12 races, with Wallace winning twice and Erik Jones once. Toyota has won 10 straight races, starting with Jones' Phoenix victory last year.
