Back To Back Racing Wins For Busch Brothers

Kyle Busch celebrates his fourth straight spring race victory at Richmond (Getty Images)

It was quite a weekend for the Busch brothers at Richmond International Speedway.   Kurt Busch won Friday night’s Nationwide race driving a car owned by his younger brother Kyle, then on Saturday night Kyle beat Tony Stewart out of the pits during a late caution to win the spring Sprint Cup race at Richmond for the fourth straight year and his first win this season.

A disappointing result for Stewart.  He had a big lead until the yellow caution flag flew with 13 laps left for a water bottle on the track.  Stewart led the leaders into the pits for one final time but Busch used the advantage of the last pit stall to beat Stewart to the line for the lead and held on.  Stewart finished third just behind Dale Earnhardt, Jr.

Even more disappointed than Stewart had to be Carl Edwards.  Edwards had the dominant car, leading 206 of the 400 laps, but was black flagged on a restart with 81 laps left when NASCAR determined he jumped the start.  Edwards’ spotter told him he was the leader.  NASCAR said Stewart was the leader.  It put Edwards at the rear of the lead lap and ended any chance of him winning.  Even after meeting with NASCAR officials after the race Edwards said he didn’t understand or agree with the ruling.

Points leader Greg Biffle came in 18th and was his lead shrink to just five points over Dale Earnhardt, Junior who moves up two spots into second place.  Junior has been quietly moving up the points ladder with five straight top-10 finishes.

Talladega is up next on the schedule.
