Kyle Busch Dominates the Brickyard 400
On a day that saw temperatures at the track in the 90s and in car temps near 114, no one had a handle on the slick track better than the #18 Toyota of Kyle Busch.
He led 149 of the 170 laps and was only challenged late during the many re-starts, two of which were in overtime. Joey Lagano was able to stay on the outside of Busch in turn 1 during the 1st overtime re-start and looked ready to open the door for either himself or the 20 of Matt Kenseth, but it wasn't to be as Carl Edwards lost control and brought out the caution to set up the final re-start, and with that, Busch simply drove away from the field. He crossed the line 2.126 sec ahead of second place finisher Matt Kenseth.
Jimmie Johnson rebounded from an early speeding penalty to finish 3rd, Denny Hamlin crossed 4th and a very nice day by the # 42 of Kyle Larson gave him a 5th place finish.
Jeff Gordon brought Dale Jrs # 88 Chevy across the line in 13th and will be behind the wheel this coming week at Pocono in what is said to be his final race before re-retiring.
