(FORT WORTH, Texas) — Kyle Busch held off Martin Truex Jr. to win the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Texas Motor Speeday, Saturday night.
Busch also won the Nationwide race Friday night, his sixth Nationwide win at Texas Motor Speedway.
“A phenomenal weekend,” Busch said after the winning for the second time in two days. “I’ve run well here in the Trucks and the Nationwide cars before. I’ve won five in a row in the Nationwide before but I had a little bit of a dry spell. I’ve never won a Cup race until tonight, so it feels really, really good. We’ve been trying so hard.”
Busch has now finished top five in his last five Sprint Cup races.
Busch is currently third in the Sprint Cup standings, just 18 points behind leader Jimmie Johnson.
