Kyle Busch won the Crown Royal Presents the Jeff Kyle 400 at the Brickyard in overtime on Sunday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. He did so by holding off Joey Logano and continuing to storm back from injuries toward a Chase berth.
Busch used a strong restart in a green-white-checkered finish to become the first driver since Jimmie Johnson in 2007 to win four Cup races in five consecutive starts. It was also Busch’s third win in a row. The Joe Gibbs Racing driver also gave Toyota its first victory at the Brickyard, and completed a weekend sweep after winning Saturday’s NASCAR XFINITY Series race.

Doug The Former Mudslinger and Psychic, Turned Kettle Corn Dude, Cole The On Demand Baseball Player, and Jason The Latent Tie Dye Hippie, and All Around Edgy Dude all selected second place finisher,Joey Logano, and were rewarded 43 points for their efforts.

Straight From The Crapper
This week there is a tie between and Carlton The Doorman and David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey for the crappiest pick of the week. Each of these gentelmen scored a paltry 2 points from Jeff Gordon’s 42nd place finish. You know that you are a candidate for the crappiest pick of the week when you only log a single digit for your score!
With just four races left in this segment we have a new “King of The Krapper”, “Prince of The Poophouse”, and “Owner of The Outhouse! After Indy it is now David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey who sits firmly in control of The Outhouse!
Next week NASCAR goes back to “the tricky triangle” of Pocono Raceway. For those who may not be totally aware of the exact location of this race track, it is in the Pocono Mountains about 50 miles Northwest of the tri-city area of Allentown, Bethlehem, and Easton, PA.
Good luck to all!
