Kyle Busch Wins NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series Race at Kentucky
Kyle Busch sped past Joey Logano late and won NASCAR’s Quaker State 400 Sprint Cup Series race on Saturday night at Kentucky Speedway. Busch led 163 of 267 laps of the race on his way to the checkered flag — his second victory in a month after missing nearly a dozen races with a leg injury he suffered at Daytona in February.
After some competitive racing, Busch got past Logano on lap 249 and held on for the win. Denny Hamlin, Carl Edwards and Matt Kenseth — each of whom are teammates with Busch at Joe Gibbs Racing — completed the top five finishers.
Kevin Harvick remained in first place in the season’s points standings with Jimmie Johnson moving into second, followed by Logano, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Martin Truex Jr.
