Busch Wins LENOX Industrial Tools 301
Kurt Busch had a bit of good luck for a change, leading the LENOX Industrial Tools 301 when the final caution came out for rain with 18 laps to go. Shortly after that, NASCAR called the race, declaring Busch the winner.
Michael Waltrip, J.J. Yeley, Martin Truex Jr., and Elliott Sadler rounded out the top 5.

On the final restart Kyle Busch and Juan Pablo Montoya got together after neither one gave the other enough room. Busch appeared to run Montoya a little high in turn 1, which Montoya didn’t appreciate. As the caution came out for contact between Clint Bowyer and Sam Hornish.
Under caution, Busch and Montoya were battling for position. Both thought they were in front of the other when the caution came out. Busch forced Montoya out of the way for the position. Montoya, then bumped Busch, spinning him out. As Busch spun, Montoya clipped his front end, and ended up spinning as a result.
Busch finished 25th and Montoya finished 32nd.
