Kyle Busch earned his 58th career Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series victory on Saturday, leading 82 of 134 laps during the Baptist Health 200 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Busch was forced to come back from an immediate drive-through penalty after his No. 51 Toyota failed prerace inspection.

“I knew the Cessna Beechcraft Toyota Tundra here was going to be awesome,” Busch said, “Thanks to TRD and Rowdy Energy, everybody that helps us here and makes us so fast. And want to say thanks to Big Machine Hand Sanitizer as well. They were on the quarter panel the last two weeks, and we didn’t win, and now they’re not here and we won.”

Tyler Ankrum finished second, earning his first top-five finish of the season. Ross Chastain finished third, Chase Elliott fourth, and Johnny Sauter finished in the fifth position.

Elliott recovered from an early crash that took out teammates Brett Moffitt and Zane Smith along with the No. 30 of Brennan Poole.
