Kurt Busch Wins at Richmond

Busch took the win after leading most of the second half of the race, despite suffering some fender damage just after half distance. Polesitter Kevin Harvick dominated the first half of the race but faded with handling problems as the laps wound down.

Winner Busch led home a Roush 1-2-3 as teammates Matt Kenseth and Greg Biffle finished in second and third.

Fourth was Kyle Busch, winner last week and the brother of this week's winner, while fifth was Rusty Wallace in the first Dodge home.

Despite numerous caution periods, there was only one driver who moved into the top ten in points to make the Chase for the Championship, with twelfth place finisher Ryan Newman edging Jamie McMurray out of tenth place.
