Busch Gives Toyota 1st Cup Win

Kyle Busch gave Toyota its first NASCAR
Sprint Cup victory, driving away from the pack in the waning laps
to win the Kobalt Tools 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Busch, winning for the first time since last March 25 at
Bristol, took the lead for good with 50 laps to go Sunday when Carl
Edwards, trying for a third straight victory, went out with a
broken transmission.
The first win for the Japanese automaker in NASCAR's top series
came in its 40th race and is the first NASCAR victory by a foreign
manufacturer since Al Keller drove a Jaguar to a road course win in
Linden, N.J., in June 1954.
