PLAYERS: Kyle Busch
For the second time in two weeks, Kyle Busch led the most laps in a Sprint Cup race. For the second time in two weeks, he failed to win. In fact, Busch hasn't closed the deal in the last 10 races in which he has led the most laps. To the driver of the No. 18 Toyota, Sunday's race was a microcosm of a frustrating season behind the wheel. "That's our year -- that's our year again tonight," said Busch, who 191 of 267 laps. "Amazing race car. These guys (Busch's crew) work so hard all year long, and it's just a shame that we're not able to come out here and be able to put it in Victory Lane like we should and like we know how to do." When it became clear that fuel strategy would decide the outcome, Busch, who had to make a late stop, was hoping for a caution and began looking for debris that would trigger it. "You never know if there's going to be a caution, or if something is going to happen, and there never was," Busch said. "You're always hoping that they find some piece of debris." But that didn't happen, and Busch ended another frustrating evening in fourth place.
