Kurt Busch won the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond Sunday. He led a race high 291 laps in route to his 26th career win. There was plenty of drama behind him though as the race unfolded. Here’s how it went down Sunday at Richmond.

After a delay from Saturday night until Sunday due to heavy rain, the green fell at 1:18 p.m. ET. Joey  Logano got out to a clear lead from pole, Denny Hamlin was second just holding off Busch, Busch was able to slip by for second on lap 2, AJ Allmendinger was fourth, Kevin Harvick fifth.

Danica Patrick was turned by Casey Mears on lap 5, but she was able to save it and continue after nearly clipping Dale Earnhardt Jr.  Up front, Hamlin was falling back and was 7th by lap 10.  Harvick was fourth, Martin Truex Jr. fifth, Brad Keselowski sixth. On lap 13 Harvick went to third over Allmendinger.  By lap 22 Logano’s lead was nearly a second and he had caught the rear of the field. MORE>>>
