Kyle Busch did it again. For the fourth race in the last five, Busch went to victory lane, this time winning Sunday’s  NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Crown Royal presents the Jeff Kyle 400 at the Brickyard. Busch won his 33rd career Sprint Cup race and completed his NASCAR-record eighth career weekend sweep having won the NASCAR Xfinity race on Saturday. Here’s how it all went down Sunday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Carl Edwards led the field to the green from his first Indy pole.  Joey Logano in second on the outside was able to take the lead by the exit of turn 2. At the end of the lap 1, Logano had a four car length lead over Edwards, David Ragan was third, Tony Stewart was fourth, Kevin  Harvick fifth. Ragan lost third to Stewart on lap 2 and was soon falling back; he was fifth by lap 3.  Kyle Busch took over fifth on lap 5.  By Lap 7 Logano’s lead was nearing a second; by lap 10 the lead was 1.4 seconds.

Edwards went to the lead on lap 13 as Logano had debris on his grill and needed to get behind Edwards to get it loose. MORE>>>
