Kyle Busch scored his third win in the last four races Sunday. Busch took the lead for the final time with 44 laps to go and went onto victory. It was his 32nd career victory, and his second at the 1-mile New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Here’s how it all went down Sunday in the NASCAR Sprint Cup 5-Hour Energy 301:

Polesitter Carl Edwards shot out to an early lead as Kyle Busch was able to get ahead of Logano for second.  David Ragan was fourth, Kurt Busch fifth.  Busch took over fourth on lap 5; Matt Kenseth followed and got by Ragan shortly after.  By lap 9 Hamlin had dropped from fifth to ninth.

By lap 13 Edwards’ lead was nearing a second but Kyle Busch stayed close and by lap 17 had caught Edwards and the lead was only .02 of a second as Edwards began lapping the back of the field. Busch was able to get by for the lead on lap 20 while racing in heavy traffic.  MORE>>>
