"I really enjoy this place," said Justin Allgaier.

Clint Boyer stated that he did not qualify as good as he wanted to.

At the drop of the green flag Joey Logano quickly got the lead of the race into turn one. At lap 17 Steven Wallace wound up on pit road for a tire that was shredding in pieces.

Lap 31 saw the first lead change of the night as Joey Logano got loose due to lapped traffic causing Kyle Busch to lead the race. Ten laps later and Kyle was in some heavy traffic as he put more cars down. Around lap 53 it was Mark Green with tire problems and at lap 56 the first debris caution comes out.

The caution brought down cars on the lead lap and Kyle Busch was able to win the race off pit road.

After the green flag dropped again Kyle quickly got the lead of the race. Green flag racing only lasted until lap 82 as Justin Allgaier in the middle of some three wide racing with Trevor Bayne gets into Kasey Kahne. That causes Kasey to wind up putting two tires on top of the safer barrier for a while until the car completely slowed down. "I had nowhere really to go," said Kasey Kahne.

Green flag racing started up agian at lap 91 with Kyle Bsuch getting the lead again. It was not a long green flag run this time and Ryan Newman bring out the caution on lap 117 as a tire let go on his car. "No warning what so ever," said Ryan Newman.

This caution brought in the leaders and Kyle Busch again wins the race off pit road again.

The green flag drops and this time Elliott Sadler got to lead laps. With 95 laps left Clint Boyer was able to get the lead of the race. Then in a couple laps the caution comes out as Clint Boyer takes out Joe Nemechek. That also caused Mike Wallace and Sean Caisse to get wrecked.

The caution brought in some of the cars on the lead lap. At the drop of the green flag it was Brad Keselowski getting to lead laps. The caution came out again as Justin Allgaier spins out with 63 laps left.

Brad got to lead more laps after the green flag dropped again. Then Kyle Busch got hot and started to challenge Brad for the lead of the race. With 32 laps left fireworks started as Kyle Busch took the lead of the race. Kyle then got loose enough to wind up getting hit by Brad. Kyle gets pissed and then spins out Brad to bring out the caution on the next lap.

The green flag drops with 26 laps left, but it quickly came out as Joey Logano gets loose and spins out. This caused Paul Menard to spin out and other cars on the back to slow up big time.

The green flag drops again and it was not long again to caution flag time as Brendan Gaughan spins out. Brian Scott also get involved. The green flag drops with 10 laps left with Kyle Busch leading laps as he cruised on to his second victory this week. His tenth win of the season ties the record set by Sam Ard.

Jason Ratcliff, the crew chief for Kyle Busch, stated that this is one of the greatest places to win at.

"I went down into the next corner and dumped him," said Kyle Busch. He also stated that he slid up- in front of Brad.

Brad Keselowski stated that Kyle did take advantage of him due to being on probation.

"We had a good car," said Dale Earnhardt. Jr.

"Just ran a nice solid race," said Jason Leffler.
