Kyle Busch Wins The First Ever Kentucky Sprint Cup Race

Kyle Busch took home the checkered flag on Saturday night for the inaugural Quaker State 400, making himself a two time winner during the NASCAR Kentucky weekend, after he scored the win for the Camping World Truck Series race on Thursday.

Busch dominated much of the race, while Brad Keselowski was also a strong factor, leading many laps. However, it was Jimmie Johnson and David Reutimann who Busch had to hold off in the final restart of the race, with only a few laps remaining. Reutimann was able to get by Johnson off of turn four on the final lap to take second place.

Kyle Busch also has taken the lead in the points standings. This is the third different points leader in three weeks. Kevin Harvick took the lead from Carl Edwards last weekend.

There were 20 lead changes among 12 drivers as well as 6 cautions for 32 yellow flag laps unofficially. The attendance was expected to be around 110,000 people as it was also sold out, but tough traffic situations may have left some fans missing the race.
