Kyle Busch rounds up Clint Bowyer

Kyle Busch has won for the fourth time in this year’s NASCAR Cup Series having taken control of the Pocono 400 after the latter stage break.

The #18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota led the 160-lap race approaching the end of Stage 2 before Busch was called into the pits, just as he had been late in Stage 1.

The play meant that he inherited the lead for the start of the final stage of the race and he held it for the rest of the way, but for the final pit stops cycle.

Despite a Caution with around 10 laps remaining, Kyle Busch won by 2.2s from Brad Keselowski and Erik Jones.

Keselowski was fourth ahead of that final restart before getting by Jones and Clint Bowyer, who ultimately finished fifth, behind Chase Elliott.

Kyle Busch’s series lead is four points over Joey Logano, who finished seventh, with Michigan next on June 7-9 (local time).
