SPARTA, KY (FOX19) -

Kyle Busch led for 163 laps to win his second Quaker State 400 in four years at Kentucky. Joey Logano took second place with Denny Hamlin finishing third in Sparta.
 
“That was awesome,” said Busch in victory lane. “I can’t say enough about Adam Stevens (Busch’s crew chief from Portsmouth, Ohio) and this whole team.”
 
Jeff Gordon will end his NASCAR career without a win at Kentucky and without making history by winning at every track after taking seventh place. Two-time Quaker State 400 winner and defending champion Brad Keselowski finished sixth.
 
In his second win of the year, Kyle Busch praised the new aerodynamics package, which was installed for the first time all season in Kentucky.

“What a blast. I like the new aero package. It seemed like you weren’t stuck. With the old packages, you would get stuck. I was able to make more moves. It was great racing with about ten laps to go. We led the most laps and won the race.
We just have to keep striving to get in position to be in the top 30.”
 
There were 11 caution laps in Saturday night’s race, the most ever in a Sprint Cup race at the Kentucky Speedway. All four of Joe Gibbs’ cars finished in the top five for the first time in Gibbs racing history.
