Lenox Industrial Tools 301 - New Hampshire Motor Speedway

Kurt Busch Wins in the Rain at Loudon
Kurt Busch and his No. 2 Miller Lite team decided to go for fuel mileage Sunday, hoping to salvage a good finish in the Lenox Industrial Tools 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. For most of the afternoon, Busch raced under the radar while Tony Stewart, Casey Mears and a few others battled way ahead for the lead. But Mother Nature smiled on Busch and a few other drivers after 284 of the 301 scheduled laps, drenching the track just 17 laps from completion. The result? Busch, who had inherited the lead when all the front-running cars had to pit for fuel after an accident brought out the day's fifth caution, captured his 18th career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victory.
