Count Kyle Busch amongst the 2015 winners in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

The 30-year-old wins in a spectacular way on Sunday at the finish line.

In the first-ever 1-2 finish in the series by the Busch brothers, Kyle beat Kurt Busch to the finish line by .532 seconds to win for the first time since returning from an 11-race absence because of a broken right leg and left foot injured during a Feb. 21 accident at Daytona International Speedway.

On Lap 106  Kyle Busch muscled past Jimmie Johnson and took the lead on the way to his second victory at the 1.99-mile road course. It is the 30th win of his career. Johnson had stayed out on old tires while Busch joined a parade to pit road for new rubber after the left rear wheel assembly separated from Casey Mears’ car to cause the fifth and final caution of the race on Lap 99.

Usually every week, Kyle Busch is always a major challenger to win a race. But most fans may have forgotten but 46 races had passed since Kyle Busch last enjoyed Victory Lane in NASCAR’s premier series, including the 11 he missed because of the Daytona injuries. Busch last won at Fontana, Calif., on Mar. 23, 2014. The victory extends his streak of winning at least one race per year to 11 years.

The win gives Busch the chance he needs to qualify for the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. Busch also must finish in the top 30 in the series standings after 26 races in order to maintain his eligibility for NASCAR’s playoff.

With the win, Kyle is chasing Cole Whit for 30th-place with 10 races left in the regular season. Busch gained two positions in the standings to 37th, 136 points behind Whit.

Can Kyle catch Whit? Nothing is impossible for a person with the drive and determination of Kyle Busch. Don’t bet against him!

The race track is a tricky, 11-turn road course which covers 2.45 miles of natural terrain. The race will cover 220.5 miles which equates to a 90-lap race.
Racing began at The Glen in 1948 on a course that included asphalt, concrete and dirt roads through the village which has a population of 2,149 people. The races were moved to a temporary course in 1953 before a permanent circuit was built in 1956.
The 1965 race won by Marvin Panch, had just 19 cars, led for all but 13 laps and pocketed a purse of $1,425. Cup racing left and did not return until 1986.

There have been more than $30 million invested by the owners for improvements in the track since 2001.
In the last 10 NASCAR Cup races at Watkins Glen, Tony Stewart has won 5 wins with Kyle Busch, Juan Pablo Montoya and Kevin Harvick with one each.
