Kyle Busch scored his ninth weekend sweep early Sunday morning. Busch led the final 34 laps to score his 36th career victory and his fourth NASCAR race in the last eight days. Here’s how it all went down at Texas Motor Speedway.
After the first rain delay of the season, Carl Edwards led the field to the green just over two hours past the original start time; Joey Logano started on the front row for the third time this season. The field went under a green-yellow condition after three pace laps as the track continued to dry.
The field was cut loose on lap 6 with Edwards on the inside and Logano on the outside. The two remained side by side for most of the lap but Logano went too high entering turn 1 on lap 7 and had to back off. Martin Truex Jr. took over second as Logano fell into third; Denny Hamlin was fourth, Ricky Stenhouse R. fifth.
By lap 14 Edwards’ lead was just over a second.
