Kyle Busch is heading to the Monster Energy Cup Series championship race after a wild, overtime sprint to the finish Sunday at Martinsville Speedway. 

Joey Logano spun with nine laps remaining after trying to get to finish with a tire rub, bringing out the caution with teammate Brad Keselowski leading. Keselowski opted for the high side on the restart but was pushed up the track after contact with Chase Elliott. 

With three laps to go, Denny Hamlin spun Elliott, who wrecked into the wall from the lead.

"Yep, he definitely wrecked me," Elliott said in his team's radio after the wreck, clearly frustrated he is still winless after 75 NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series races. 

 After the overtime restart, Kyle Busch overtook his teammate Hamlin and held on for the win as the majority of the field wreck at the finish. 

After the race, Elliott confronted Hamlin, upset that he was wrecked, costing him a win despite leading 123 laps on the night.
