Kurt Busch’s turnaround on the racetrack continued with a dominating run at Infineon Raceway, where he earned his first career road-course win and his first of the season.

Busch led a race-high 76 laps and beat Jeff Gordon by almost four seconds.

Busch has really come on since he became upset at his race team’s performance and the Penske Racing organization on his car radio at Richmond in early May.

Busch had been winless in 10 career starts at both Sonoma and Watkins Glen, the only two road courses on the Sprint Cup circuit.

Rounding out the top five, Jeff Gordon was second, Carl Edwards finished third, Clint Bowyer was fourth and Marcos Ambrose finished fifth.

Marcos Ambrose was the best on Saturday in qualifying at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. Even though he is up front, he’ll have his hands full trying to take advantage of his chance to win because of the tricky 14-turn track.

Ambrose turned a fast lap of 97.079 to edge out Canadian racing star Jacques Villeneuve who had a 96.924 mph and capture the pole for Sunday’s (today) Nationwide Series race.

Qualifying was divided into eight groups, with assignments based on practice times from the first session.
