Kyle Busch Finally Wins A Race At Charlotte

There is a reason I don’t pay a lot of attention to the All-Star race. It’s at a 1.5 mile track known for aero challenges. The leader gets away and it’s all over.

After a 5 hour rain delay and over 30 minutes of the cars running at caution speed to help dry the track, Edwards handily won the rain-shortened race.
