Rain has been a friend of Kurt Busch this season.  Busch was declared the winner of the NASCAR Sprint Cup series Quicken Loans 400 at Michigan International Speedway Sunday when the race was called for rain 61 laps from the scheduled finish.  The race dodged rain all afternoon with a total of 4 rain delays on the afternoon and only 100 green laps of the scheduled 200. Busch gave much of the credit for the win to his spotter Rick Carelli.

“It’s amazing when you have team chemistry at the level we do,” Busch said. “I grew-up watching Rick Carelli and Ron Hornaday, the legends of the Southwest Tour run; and to have Carelli as my spotter, I have so much respect for him. And he has so much wisdom to gain. And he’s a good mentor. He teaches me so many things. “

Busch won the race at Richmond in April after that race was delayed a day due to rain. MORE>>>
