SPARTA, Ky. – Another late-race rally by Kurt Busch boosted the Furniture Row Racing driver to a sixth-place finish in Sunday’s rain-delayed Quaker State 400. The Sprint Cup Series race, originally scheduled for Saturday night, was postponed due to wet weather at Kentucky Speedway. The result was Busch’s seventh top-10 finish of the season, which propelled him from 17th to 14th in the driver point standings. He is only 16 points out of 10th with nine races remaining before the start of the Chase. The sixth-place result was also Busch’s fourth top-10 in the last six races.
