Kurt Busch has failed to win the last four races where he has led the most laps. That was before Sunday. Busch was the class of the field leading a race high 291 of 400 laps to win the NASCAR Sprint Cup series Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond International Raceway. In a race delayed a day by rain Busch was the dominate car. He was able to retake the lead after surviving three restarts in the last 50 laps to score his 26th career win and his first since Martinsville last spring.

“It’s an incredible feeling,” Busch said in victory lane.” It’s a total team effort. And the way that everything came together just seemed like we were building and building and building towards a great finish like this.”

Prior to Sunday, Busch had led more laps than any other driver without a win. It’s an amazing feat considering Busch was suspended from the first three races of the season due to a domestic violence issue.

“It’s an unbelievable feeling when you pull deep from within and you go through troubles and you know,“  an emotional Busch said. “When you’re accused of something and things go sideways, your personal life doesn’t need to affect your business life. And I’m here in Victory Lane.” MORE>>>
