Kurt Busch Wins at Pocono

Kurt Busch dominated from the opening lap and cruised to his first victory in 51 races at Pocono Raceway. It's his first win since winning at Bristol in March of 2006.

The win lifted Busch into the 12th and final spot of the Chase for the Nextel Cup standings, one spot ahead of Dale Earnhardt Jr. There are 5 races left until the championship races start.

Earnhardt was second and Denny Hamlin third. Points leader Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson rounded out the top five.

The race did not include Robby Gordon, who was suspended by NASCAR early this morning for his conduct at the Busch Series race in Montreal a day before.
