Long Pond, PA - Kurt Busch dominated from the opening lap
and cruised to his first victory in 51 races at Pocono Raceway.
It's his first win since winning at Bristol in March of 2006.
The win lifted Busch into the 12th and final spot of the Chase
for the Nextel Cup standings, one spot ahead of Dale Earnhardt Jr.
There are 5 races left until the championship races start.
Earnhardt was second and Denny Hamlin third. Points leader Jeff
Gordon and Jimmie Johnson rounded out the top five.
The race did not include Robby Gordon, who was suspended by
NASCAR early this morning for his conduct at the Busch Series race
in Montreal a day before.
