'Other' Busch runs away with dominating win

Mar 8, 2009 | Posted by: The Associated Press | Full story: The Associated Press

The other Busch showed his kid brother a thing or two.

Kurt Busch, a former NASCAR Cup champion who's been overshadowed lately by his sibling Kyle, drove to a dominating victory Sunday at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

The 30-year-old Busch led 235 of 330 laps in the Kobalt Tools 500, surviving a couple of scrapes with the wall and a late caution to pull away for a 0.332-second victory over Jeff Gordon.

Pole-sitter Mark Martin, who had become the second-oldest driver in Cup history to claim the top spot in qualifying, had another rough day after blowing engines the two previous weeks. He apparently cut a tire, smashed the wall and finished 31st, 14 laps down.

Seems like most of the manufacturers are getting a turn. Dodge, Toyota and Ford looking good so far.
