Kurt Busch was able to stay out ahead of all of the beating, and banging behind him Sunday afternoon in Sonoma at Infineon Raceway to win the Toyota / Savemart 350!

That's his first win in the 2011 Season, and his 23rd Sprint Cup career victory. I have never pretended to care for either of the Busch Brothers. However, since Jimmy Spencer punched Kurt in the mouth a couple of years ago, he has had a much better attitude. (Let's hope someone can adjust little brother Kyle's attitude soon.)

Jeff Gordon and his team were able to use pit strategy to get him a second place finish, and current season points leader Carl Edwards finished in third place, Clint Boyer was fourth and Marcos Ambrose fifth.

For me, one of the best parts of the race is the back and forth between Tony Stewart, and Brian Vickers...

Next Saturday night it's the "Coke Zero 400" at Daytona International Speedway. Catch it on TNT starting at 6:30PM.

Here are the current point standings...
