Kyle Busch wins at New Hamp­shire

Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

LOUDON, N.H. — Kyle Busch con­tin­ues to find vic­tory lane and is mov­ing closer to land­ing a spot in the Chase. Busch’s dom­i­nant come­back rolled on Sun­day at New Hamp­shire Mo­tor Speed­way when he won for the sec­ond straight week­end and for the third time in the last four NASCAR Sprint Cup races. He broke his right leg and left foot in a crash the day be­fore the sea­son-open­ing Day­tona 500. He missed the first 11 races of the sea­son, then re­turned in late May de­ter­mined to earn a berth in NASCAR’s cham­pi­onship play­offs. Busch needs only to fin­ish in the top 30 in the reg­u­lar-sea­son stand­ings to earn a spot in the 16-driver Chase for the Sprint Cup field. He con­tin­ued to gain ground on the 30th spot and should be able to crack the field at this rate. Brad Ke­selowski was sec­ond, fol­lowed by Kevin Har­vick, Joey Logano and Dale Earn­hardt Jr.
