According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Kenseth had 6/1 odds to win this race, which means a wager of $100 on him to win will pay out an additional $600.

Kenseth improved his lead in the standings to 8 points. Busch moves to second by himself while Jimmie Johnson is now third, 11 points out of first. Johnson finished fifth on Sunday. Kurt Busch made a big jump up to fifth in the standings, 23 points out of first, after placing fourth on Sunday.
