FORT WORTH, Texas — Kyle Busch took advantage of a late caution to regain the lead and held on for the final 16 laps after the last restart Saturday night to win the Sprint Cup race at Texas, completing a NASCAR weekend sweep.
Busch followed Martin Truex Jr. for about 50 laps before a yellow flag for debris with 21 laps left. Busch took the lead off pit road during the caution and charged forward in his Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota with a strong restart.
It was the second time this season, and eighth time in his career, that Busch won Sprint Cup and Nationwide races in the same weekend. He was the pole-sitter Saturday night, and won the Nationwide race Friday night on the 1½-mile, high-banked track. Busch, who also won both races at Fontana last month, led 171 of 334 laps for his 26th career Cup victory.
Truex was trying to win for the first time since June 2007 but his winless streak reached 210 races when he finished a half-second behind Busch. Truex came into the race 25th in points with no laps led, but had his Michael Waltrip Racing Toyota in front for 142 laps at Texas.
Carl Edwards, a three-time winner at Texas who had his seatbelt come loose during the race, finished third ahead of Roush Fenway teammate Greg Biffle.
Joey Logano barely made the start of the race after inspections turned up problems. He started at the back but worked up to a fifth-place finish. Jimmie Johnson maintained his series points lead by finishing sixth.
