INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Kurt Busch has successfully completed the Indianapolis 500 - the first step in his bid to become the second driver to finish the prestigious race as well as the Coca-Cola 600 in the same day.
Busch finished sixth in Indy after starting 12th.
The Double has been attempted by just three drivers, the last being Robby Gordon in 2004. Only one, Tony Stewart in 2001, successfully completed the two races, finishing sixth at Indy and third at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Ahead for Busch was a plane ride to North Carolina for the second race Sunday night. He will start 28th in NASCAR's longest race of the season.
