It was an up and down day with Mother Nature getting the upper hand at Michigan Sunday. Kurt Busch won the NASCAR Sprint Cup Quicken Loans 400 after he and the rest of the field waited out four rain delays. Busch went on to score his second win of the season and the 27th of his career after NASCAR called the race at lap 139, 61 laps short of the scheduled 200. Here’s how the Quicken Loans 400 went down at Michigan International Speedway Sunday.

Under dark threatening  skies as teams were told rain was within 20 minutes of the track, polesitter Kasey Kahne led the field to green. It was Carl Edwards who was credited  with leading the first lap; he fell into second handing the lead back to Kahne on the next lap; Kevin Harvick was third, Jeff Gordon fourth and Brad Keselowski fifth.  MORE>>>
