Busch Out Of Basement

45960Jpg
Kyle Busch scored a sixth-place finish in Sunday's Dickies 500 at Texas Motor Speedway and finally moved out of the last position in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup championship standings.

In fact the finish jumped Busch to the 10th spot and he now sits just ahead of Dale Earnhardt, Jr. His Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Denny Hamlin fell into the cellar after Sunday's race.

"It was a good race car; the M&M's Toyota was decent," said Busch. "We battled all day to get up there and then we got shuffled back. It was the best we could do with the car we had."

Busch, who won Saturday's Nationwide Series race at the 1.5-mile speedway, started Sunday's race 29th.

He was able to work his way to the front of the field and was as high as second as the race wound down.

But Busch was forced to pit for fuel and helplessly watched as eventual race winner Carl Edwards and runner-up finisher Jeff Gordon were able to stretch their loads to the checkered flag.

"Clean air was so important here and we had to get up front," said Busch. "We never really got there. We got there once but then we kind of got shuffled back a few spots because of the pit stops that came there at the end of the race with the last caution flag pit stop.

"Those guys took two and just got track position on us."

Busch is now only 24 points behind his other JGR teammate Tony Stewart and will look to move up the standings in the season's final two races at Phoenix and Homestead.
