Busch wins third straight race
INDIANAPOLIS, IN (TheSpread) – Kyle Busch continued his amazing run in NASCAR on Sunday, as he won his third straight race and fourth in five events, claiming the Jeff Kyle 400 at the Brickyard.
Busch again had one of the top cars on the day and he battled some late caution flags but still held off a rush from Joey Logano and Kevin Harvick to get the win. Busch now has tied Jimmie Johnson for the most wins in 2015, claiming a total of four victories. Busch is now 23 points out of that 30th spot in the point standings, which is where he needs to get to qualify for the Chase.
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Busch came into this week with 7/1 odds to win, which means that a wager of $100 on him to prevail will payout an additional $700.
Harvick finished third and remains atop the point standings. He has a 68-point lead on Logano, which ended up second. Martin Truex Jr. and Denny Hamlin rounded out the top 5 on Sunday while Jeff Gordon had a final race at Indy to forget, as a wreck caused him to finish 42nd.
