INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Kyle Busch had just enough fuel stored up to outlast a string of late-race cautions and take the checkered flag at the Brickyard 400.
The win marks Busch’s second-straight in the Circle City’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race. The Joe Gibbs driver completed a sweep never before done in NASCAR history: Win both poles and both races in the Xfinity and Sprint Cup series in the same weekend.
Busch led 149 of the races 160 laps, breaking a record previously held by Jeff Gordon. Gordon finished 13th in his return from retirement to the Brickyard 400. Tony Stewart, in his final (planned) Brickyard race, finished 11th.
