For the fourth time this season Kyle Busch took the checkered flag, but it was for the first time ever at Michigan.  Kyle held off Jimmie Johnson on a two-lap sprint after brother Kurt Busch scraped the wall bringing out the final caution of the day.  With the victory, Kyle becomes the first driver to clinch a spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup.

Johnson was in the lead with about a dozen laps left but Busch tracked him down and eventually passed him.  Johnson was looking for his first victory at Michigan and nosed ahead of Busch for just a moment on the first lap of the green, white, checkered finish, but was forced to settle for second.

Brad Keselowski finished third giving him three straight top-three finishes.  Mark Martin and Ryan Newman completed the top-five.

Pole sitter Greg Biffle led 86 of the first 100 laps until Kyle Busch passed him.  Biffle ended up 20th.

The June winner at Michigan – Denny Hamlin finished 35th.

Carl Edwards had electrical problems and needed to visit the garage.  He came in 36th and dropped two slot in the standings from second to fourth.

Saturday night at Bristol is up next on the schedule.
