Kyle Busch gets NASCAR weekend sweep at Texa

Posted:

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Kyle Busch took advantage of a late caution to regain the lead and held on for the final 16 laps after the last restart Saturday night to win the Sprint Cup race at Texas, completing a NASCAR weekend sweep. 

Busch followed Martin Truex Jr. for about 50 laps before a yellow flag for debris with 21 laps left. Busch took the lead off pit road during the caution and charged forward with a strong restart in his Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota. 

It was the second time this season, and seventh time in his career, that Busch won Cup and Nationwide races in the same weekend. He was the polesitter Saturday night, and won the Nationwide race Friday night on the 1½-mile, high-banked track. 

Busch, who also won both races at Fontana last month, led 171 of 334 laps for his 26th career Cup victory.
