Busch Wins 400

Kyle Busch passed Jimmie Johnson on the final restart with two laps to go and held on to win the 400 from Chicagoland Speedway. The win is his seventh Sprint Cup win this season.

On the final restart, Johnson brought the field to the green slowly. Busch timed it perfectly, and got right on Johnson’s back bumper, as Johnson accelerated. Busch then dove to the outside and pinned Johnson down in the corner, and drove right by Johnson for the win.

Top 5: Busch, Johnson, Kevin Harvick, Gref Biffle, and Tony Stewart.

Brian Vickers, Matt Kenseth, David Ragan, Martin Truex Jr., and Ryan Newman finished sixth through 10th, respectively.

Notables: Jeff Gordon (11th), Kasey Kahne (15th), Dale Earnhardt Jr. (16th), Mark Martin (17th), Jeff Burton (18th), Kurt Busch (28th), Carl Edwards (32nd), and Denny Hamlin (40th).
