Even after missing 11 races while recovering from a broken leg and broken foot following a crash at Daytona in February, Kyle Busch can punch a ticket to the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship as long as he averages a 13th place finish over the next 10 races.  That should be enough to place him in the Top 30 of the Sprint Cup points standings to go along with his first victory of the season.  Currently he stands 37th, up two spots from the last race.

Kyle finished a half second ahead of his brother Kurt Busch at the road course track at Sonoma Raceway in California to give the Busch brothers their first-ever 1 - 2 finish in a Sprint Cup race.

Using new tires, Kyle quickly caught up to and passed leader Jimmie Johnson on lap 106 of the 110 lap race and held off his brother to give Kyle at least one victory every season for the past 11 years.

With Kurt Busch's victory in the last race at Michigan followed by Kyle's win at Sonoma, it gives the brothers back-to-back victories for the 7th time, the most in NASCAR history.

Kurt led a race-high 43 laps and might have been able to pass his brother but struggled to pass Clint Boyer in the closing laps.

Boyer settled for third place with Kevin Harvick and Joey Logano completing the Top 5.

A return trip to Daytona is up next on the schedule.
