Busch picked up his fourth win of the year on Saturday and jumped to 13th in the points standings, just one slot outside the Chase for the Championship with two races remaining.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Sports Interaction, Busch had odds of 7/1 to win the race before the event, meaning a $100 bet on Busch to win will pay out $700.

Mark Martin finished second on the day, while Marcos Ambrose finished third, and Greg Biffle came in fourth.

Martin came in with odds of 9/1 to win, while Ambrose would have been part of the field bet that had 12/1 odds.

Dale Earnhardt Jr., who came into the race with 28/1 odds, finished ninth for his second-straight top 10 finish.

Points leader, Tony Stewart, had a long night, finishing 33rd overall.
