Kyle Busch gave his signature bow to the fans at Indianapolis Motor Speedway as he celebrates his 2nd Sprint Cup Series Brickyard 400 win. Not only he dominated in fashion this race but he also became the first driver to sweep both a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and a NASCAR Xfinity series race during the same weekend at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
To say that he accomplished his 2nd consecutive weekend sweep of the Indy races is an understatement of the facts that occurred. In a race that went 25 miles beyond its scheduled distance, Busch led 149 of 170 laps, a course and event record.
This is his 4th triumph of the season and 38th of his career.
Busch is acutely aware of the history of the sport, and completing a weekend sweep by winning both races from the pole was high on his bucket list.
But the story of the day was the long good-bye from Stewart and Gordon, juxtaposed against the backdrop of Busch’s emphatic hello to greatness at the flag stand. As Busch spun his No. 18 Toyota in a celebratory burnout and took his customary bows near the yard of bricks, Tony Stewart and Jeff Gordon slowly circled the track, driving side by side, waving to fans acknowledging their career accomplishments after what is expected to be their respective last appearances at the Brickyard.
Gordon, a 5 time winner of the race finished in the 13th spot and came out of retirement only to replace Dale Earnhard Jr.
