Penalties on Kyle Busch open the door for a young playoff driver looking for his first career win


Kyle Busch dominated the first stage of the first playoff race at Chicagoland, but it was 21-year-old Chase Elliott who won the second stage of the race.

Elliott took advantage of Busch making a pit stop on Lap 98 for a loose wheel. Busch and his team were also penalized for his pit crew going over the wall too soon.

Elliott is searching for the first career win, and it was the third stage win of the season for him.

Busch has plenty of ground to make up after a rough second stage. He made it back up to 16th by Lap 153. After 160 laps, Elliott led Kevin Harvick, Martin Truex Jr., Kyle Larson and Brad Keselowski.
