This time, Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway delivered more “treats” instead of “tricks” for Team Interstate’s Kyle Busch.

The driver of the No. 18 M&M’s Halloween Toyota Camry rallied from an early pit road miscue to score a hard-fought fifth-place finish Sunday in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Camping World RV Sales 500 to move up to third in points.

“Our M&M’s Halloween Camry ran great all day,” said Busch, who earned his fourth top-five finish in 18 starts at Talladega, including his April 2008 win at the 2.66-mile oval. “I appreciate all the team guys and everybody from TRD (Toyota Racing Development), Toyota, M&M’s and Monster Energy. It was fun to finish one of these things. It’s God’s grace that allows us to finish one of these, and we appreciate it today, especially coming home with another top-five.”

Busch’s JGR teammates – Matt Kenseth, driver of the No. 20 Toyota Camry, and Denny Hamlin, driver of the No. 11 Toyota Camry – finished 20th and 38th, respectively.

Jamie McMurray won the Camping World RV Sales 500.
