|Busch Wins Coca Cola 600 to Sweep Charlotte Races
|CONCORD, N.C. (AP) -- Kurt Busch has won the Coca-Cola 600 to sweep the two weeks of racing at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Busch won last weekend's $1 million All-Star race to roll into NASCAR's longest race of the year with a ton of momentum. His Dodge was strong from start to finish in Sunday's race, but he had to hold off a hard-charging Jamie McMurray over the final laps.
Daytona 500 winner McMurray came up just short and missed an opportunity to give team owner Chip Ganassi two wins in one day. Earlier Sunday, Dario Franchitti made Ganassi the first owner to win the Indianapolis 500 and Daytona 500 in the same season.
Kyle Busch rallied from a mid-race crash on pit road to finish third.
