The Wine Tastes Sweet for Kyle Busch: Wins Fifth Race of Season

Mike DiMauroSenior Writer IJune 22, 2008

Kyle Busch has been the most dominate driver of the 2008 season. He can also win at any type of track NASCAR has to offer, no matter what series. He also took time off from racing the trucks and Nationwide series to bring his #18 M&M's Toyota from a 30th starting spot to his fifth victory of the season.

David Gillilland also had the best finish in his career with a second place finish, that he had to avoid a late race crash to get. Rounding up the top 5 were Jeff Gordon, Clint Bowyer and Casey Mears, which finished his best position of 2008.

Kyle Busch also keeps his lead in the points standing, now 103 over Jeff Burton. Dale Earnhardt Jr., Carl Edwards and Jimmie Johnson keep their places in the standings. Matt Kenseth moves into the top 12 with an eighth place finish. Kenseth leads Harvick by 2 points for the 12th position after he was involved in a late race incident that pushed him down to 30th place for the race.

Next week, the Sprint Cup comes up to New England to race the LENOX Industrial Tools 300 from the New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, New Hampshire. The race will begin at 2PM. TNT will begin their coverage at 12:30PM and MRN/Sirius will start their coverage at 1:15PM.
