#18-Kyle Busch won the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway to capture his 2nd Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series championship. The win is his 5th win of 2019, 2nd win at Homestead and 56th career win.
#19-Truex, Jr. finished 2nd followed by #20-Jones, #4-Harvick, #22-Logano, #14-Bowyer, #6-Newman, #3-Dillon, #88-Bowman and #11-Hamlin.
Busch led 120 laps total. He took the green as the leader for the final restart with 101 laps to go, briefly gave up the lead, regained it with 98 laps to go and never looked back. The other championship driver all battled issues:
#19-Truex, Jr dominated early in the race, winning the first stage. However, under green flag pit stops during the second stage, the pit crew put the tires on the car wrong. He had to come back to pit road and lost a lap. He was able to get the free pass on lap 136, but was never able to get back to the front.
#4-Harvick fought an ill-handling car midway through the race that forced him to stay out under green longer than the other championship contenders, hoping for a caution. By the time he had to pit, he was unable to get near the lead.
#11-Hamlin pitted with 46 laps remaining but the crew put too much tape on the nose of the car. It started to overheat and he had to pit again under green. He was able to get back on the lead lap just before the end of the race.
#8-Hemric captured the Rookie of the Year title with a 12th place finish.
