Kyle Busch show rolls through Indy

Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS - BY JENNA FRYER

Kyle Busch’s in­cred­i­ble come­back rolled through In­di­anapo­lis Mo­tor Speed­way, where Busch won the Brick­yard 400 on Sun­day for a week­end sweep at the his­toric track.

Busch, who also won the sec­ond-tier Xfinity Se­ries race Satur­day at In­di­anapo­lis, moved 23 points away from crack­ing the top 30 in the stand­ings. NASCAR granted him a waiver that will make him el­i­gi­ble for the Chase for the Sprint Cup cham­pi­onship should he be ranked in­side the top 30 in points. Joey Logano fin­ished sec­ond. Kevin Har­vick was third, fol­lowed by Martin Truex Jr., Busch team­mate Denny Ham­lin and Clint Bowyer. Matt Kenseth was sev­enth, fol­lowed by Kurt Busch and Kyle Lar­son.

Brad Ke­selowski rounded out the top 10.

Jeff Gor­don’s fi­nal Brick­yard 400 was a huge bust as an early spin caused con­sid­er­able dam­age that even­tu­ally sent him to the garage for re­pairs. Gor­don fin­ished 42nd.
