How sweep it is again for Joe Gibbs Racing
5/16/10 in NASCAR
For the second straight week, a Joe Gibbs Racing driver has swept the Nationwide and Sprint Cup Series races. This time, that honor goes to Kyle Busch, who took advantage of a late race pit road mistake by leader Jimmie Johnson, to hold off Jeff Burton and Matt Kenseth to win the Autism Speaks 400. This is Busch's 18th career win in the series and it comes a day after he dominated and won the Nationwide race. Busch would've pulled off the trifecta had he not had his own late race pit mistake in the truck race Friday night.
Next week, the series heads to Charlotte for the Sprint Showdown and the Nascar Sprint Cup All-Star Race, both non-points races. The series gets back to points racing Memorial Day weekend with the Coca-Cola 600, the schedule's longest race of the year.
