This just in. Kyle Busch is pretty good.

Race favorite Kyle Busch was dominant and won the O'Reilly 300 at Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday.  Tony Stewart took on four tires with less than 10 laps to go while Busch and Brad Keselowski stayed on the track during a caution. Stewart quickly moved from seventh to second, but ran out of time to catch Kyle who makes the three-peat at Texas in this series. Jeff Burton was the main challenger for Busch for most of the race before fading in pit stops at the end.

Carl Edwards finished 18th after being helped into the wall at the end, but still has a 38 point lead in the overall standings.
