Larson however, would drop the second spot to Kevin Harvick in the No. 4. Then it was a battle between Harvick and Busch for the lead. It would take Harvick 32 laps into the stage before he would make the pass on Busch.
After making the pas, Harvick would put some distance between himself and Busch quickly, with a 1.698-second lead just 6 laps after making the pass. This is also when the sun decided to poke its very welcomed rays for the first time of the day.
On lap 128, the caution would come out for the 3rd time as Kyle Larson had a right front tire blow while running in 4th. Larson would slam violently into the turn two wall, ending his day early. That is the same way his race ended the last time he was in Texas.
The field would get restarted with the drop of the green flag on lap 134. Shortly after, trouble struck again for Harvick as he had to come back down pit road after he reported a loose tire.
With just four laps left in stage two, Kyle Busch would make the pass on his brother Kurt to take the lead. Kyle then was able to hold off Kurt to take the stage two victory, his second stage win of the season.
