Winners and Losers from NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at Darlington

If you don't like the way the middle stages of a NASCAR race play out, just wait for the end of it.

The first three-quarters or so of Saturday night's Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway were mostly caution-free, allowing Kyle Busch to lap the majority of the field at a relatively quick clip. It seemed like he would coast to an easy victory, completing a sweep of the weekend.

But anyone who turned off the race early, thinking the outcome was never in doubt, may be surprised to find out that it wasn't meant to be.

Instead of Busch taking his third win of the season, it was Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Matt Kenseth who pulled into victory lane after a long night. Overcoming the loss of crew chief Jason Ratcliff for the weekend, Kenseth won his third race of the year to lead the series in that category.

So who else had a good (or bad) day at "The Track Too Tough To Tame"?
