Kyle Busch and his team didn’t start the AdvoCare 500 on Sunday night at Atlanta Motor Speedway looking like race winners. But they sure finished that way.

Kyle, driver of the No. 18 M&M’s/Interstate Batteries Toyota Camry, overcame early-race handling issues and used a clutch final pit stop by the M&M’s over-the-wall team to lead the final 36 laps and score his fourth win of the season. The win also clinched a spot in the 2013 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup.

“I can’t say enough about this team and their work tonight,” Kyle said. “Their work tonight definitely helped me out a lot. I wasn’t happy with the racecar at all in the beginning of the race, but Dave (Rogers, crew chief) and the guys made some really good calls and got us some great adjustments there tonight to get us back up.

“My boys, my boys on pit road. What can I say? They’re just – that’s the same group since 2008. They’re amazing. I love those guys. I would do anything for them, and this M&M’s Camry was awesome today.”

The win was Kyle’s 100th overall NASCAR win (Sprint Cup, Nationwide, and Camping World Truck) driving a Toyota vehicle. It was also Toyota’s 250th overall win in NASCAR.

Busch’s Joe Gibbs Racing teammates – Matt Kenseth in the No. 20 Toyota Camry and Denny Hamlin in the No. 11 Toyota Camry – finished 12th and 38th, respectively.

Mike Edwards powered his Interstate Batteries/I Am Second/K&N/Penhall Chevy Camaro to his sixth victory of the season and 40th of his career Monday at the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis.

Mike used a quicker reaction time in the final to beat V. Gaines.

“I can’t describe how I feel at the moment,” Mike said. Winning the Chevy Performance U.S. Nationals is a huge deal for this team and myself personally.”

Mike injured his left shoulder during the event and fought through the pain for the victory.

“It hurt to get in and out of the car, but once inside, the pain disappeared and I knew I had a job today. Probably made me focus even more,” he said.

Mike will start the Countdown to a Championship, drag racing’s version of a playoff, in the top position after dominating the regular season. He’ll carry a 30-point bonus over second place.

“I’m ready to start the Countdown,” he said. “It’s going to be a battle and a fight, and it’s going to come down to what driver can perform the best. But I feel like my Camaro and my team are capable of winning, and it’s going to be fun.”
