By tak­ing the check­ered flag on the lead lap two weeks ago at Watkins Glen In­ter­na­tional, Kurt Busch ex­tended his record run. Through 22 races, Busch has com­pleted all 5,901 laps avail­able to date, break­ing the old record of 20 straight lead-lap fin­ishes to start the sea­son. The pre­vi­ous mark was set by Dale Earn­hardt Jr. in 2012. Dat­ing to last sea­son, Busch has 25 straight fin­ishes on the lead lap and is in pur­suit of Carl Ed­wards’ 28-race over­all streak that was es­tab­lished be­tween last sea­son and this sea­son.
