Photo- Getty Images The hot-start Kyle Busch is off to this season just keeps getting better. The season isn’t even two months old and Busch has six wins combined in NASCAR’s top three series’. Busch returned to victory lane on Saturday Night when he dominated the race and remained up front throughout the night. A late restart allowed Busch’s crew to get him back out front and then he held of Martin Truex Jr. to cruise to the finish. If it wasn’t for the last caution with 21 laps to go, Martin Truex Jr. would have likely ended up in victory lane since he dominated most of the second half of the race.  Busch knew he couldn’t let that happen and he was determined to win in his 300th Sprint Cup start and he did just that. Busch started the race from the pole and he led for a good part of the beginning of the race. The first caution came out on lap 38 for debris and the second yellow-flag soon followed. Just after the restart following the first caution, a wreck between Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Austin Dillon unfolded on the backstretch. Stenhouse Jr. had a problem going down the backstretch and he then spun down into Dillon. Stenhouse Jr. then completely spun out and slid backwards against the outside wall until he reached turn 3. Dillon made slight contact with the turn 3 wall and he was able to continue. Stenhouse Jr. also was able to continue in the race after repairs were made to his Ford. Prior to the caution coming out, Martin Truex Jr. snuck past Busch to take his first lead of the race, but Busch would pass him again on lap 76. Busch continued to lead through the halfway point in the race and it wasn’t until lap 188 when he was challenged for the lead again. On lap 188, Jeff Gordon was able to power past Busch for his first lead of the night. Gordon’s time up front was short-lived however, since a round of green-flag pit stops began nine laps after he took the lead and following the stops, Truex Jr. regained the top spot. Truex Jr. stayed in the lead through the next few cautions including the one with 54 laps to go when Marcos Ambrose and Jeff Burton spun out down the backstretch. Ambrose got tapped from behind by David Gilliland which resulted in the No.9 car spinning down the backstretch. Burton wasn’t aware of the spin ahead of him so when Mark Martin slowed ahead of him, Burton didn’t have time to slow with him. Burton then spun himself out and scrapped the inside wall along the backstretch. Both Burton and Ambrose were able to continue in the race. Truex Jr. remained out front on the restart and he stayed in the lead until the final yellow-flag which flew with 21 laps to go when debris were spotted in turn 4. The leaders pitted under the caution and a phenomenal stop by Busch’s crew got their driver back out front. Busch was then able to hold off Truex Jr. on the restart and he then just motored around until the finish. Truex Jr. started to close on the final lap, but it was too late and Busch took the checkered flag. This was Busch’s second Cup win this season and the second win for Busch during the weekend since he had won the Nationwide Race on Friday Night. The win last night and the win during the Cup race meant that Busch had swept the Nationwide and Cup races yet again. Busch already swept both races at Fontana three weeks ago and his superb driving skills led him to another sweep this weekend in the Lone Star State. After a shaky first few races of the season, Busch has hit his stride and he will continue to look for success as the season progresses. Next weekend’s race at Kansas will be wide open due to the fact that it’ll only be  the second race on the tracks new surface and that could mean for a surprise winner. Tune into next weekend to see if Jimmie Johnson and Kyle Busch can continue to dominate or if we’ll see a new winner. Whatever the outcome of the race next weekend, it is surely going to be a good one.
