#18-Kyle Busch won the AutoTrader EchoPark Automotive 500 NASCAR Cup Series race at Texas Motor Speedway on Wednesday, after the race was delayed 3 days for rain. The win is his 1st win of the year, 4th at Texas, and 57th career win.

The race was postponed on Sunday with 52 laps complete after heavy mist kept NASCAR from being able to dry the track and was it unable to be restarted Monday or Tuesday. Officially the red flag was 72 hours, 28 minutes, 34 seconds.
Pole sitter #4-Harvick finished 16th after getting into the outside wall during the first stage on Sunday and pancaking the car. He fell one lap down, to 36th before being able to get back on the lead lap for much of the race.
#9-Elliott had to pit an extra time near the end of stage 2 when a tire went down right after he pitted for fuel. He lost a lap and finished 20th.
Stage 1 was won by #14-Bowyer. Stage 2 was won by #18-Busch.
There were 23 lead changes among 11 drivers and 8 cautions for 47 yellow flag laps.
