Kyle Busch’s climb toward the top thirty in the Sprint Cup Series standings continued Saturday night at Kentucky Speedway with his second win of the season in just seven starts. Busch led a race-high 163 laps, including the final twenty trips around the mile-anda-half oval. The victory lifted him from thirty-seventh to thirty-fifth in the standings with eight races left in the regular season. After missing the first eleven races of the year while recovering from injuries suffered in February at Daytona, Busch needs an average finish of sixteenth over the final fifteen races of the regular season to be eligible for a spot in the post-season Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. In seven starts since returning, his average finish is now seventeenth. Busch led a parade of Joe Gibbs Racing cars into the top five at night’s end Saturday. Denny Hamlin finished third, Carl Edwards fourth and Matt Kenseth fifth. Team Penske’s Joey Logano ran second, one-point-five seconds behind Busch at the checkered flag. With an eighth-place finish, regular-season points leader Kevin Harvick became the first driver to officially clinch his spot on the 2015 Chase Grid.
