  Email   Print

The race was a battle between the Gibbs teammates as Busch and Logano led 172 of the race’s 225 laps.

"He had a better car on the short run, and we had a better car on the long run," Busch said. "[The team] did a great job and it was just a shame we weren’t able to get out there and win this thing. That’s kind of frustrating, but we finished second."

The victory was also the first of the season for JGR’s No. 20 team and crew chief Dave Rogers, and Rogers’ first since his suspension last year.

Busch completed the JGR 1-2 finish by coming home second. Brad Keselowski was third, followed by Kelly Bires and Carl Edwards. Sixth through 10th were: Jason Leffler, David Ragan, Mike Bliss, Steve Wallace and Scott Lagasse Jr.

Busch cut into Edwards’ points lead and now trails by 23 after the sixth race of the season.
