Kyle Busch Wins Lowe's Busch

A record number of cautions couldn't stop Kyle Busch from claiming the win at Lowe's Motor Speedway at Charlotte last night

Kyle Busch Wins Lowe's Busch

Busch just held off Sterling Marlin at the finish to take the win, Busch repeating his win of a year ago. Four of the race's record eleven cautions fell in the last 30 laps, but Busch was able to pull away at each restart.

Marlin was followed by Ryan Newman who was making his first Busch appearance in four years. Newman and fourth placed Biffle recovered from earlier problems but never were in contention for the win.

Pole sitter Kasey Kahne, Carl Edwards and Tony Stewart were among those who failed to finish. Kahne hit the wall hard, while Edwards crashed after some help from Ashton Lewis.
