Congratulations and happy birthday to Kyle Busch, winner of the Crown Royal 400 NASCAR event here in Richmond. Chesterfield counties own Denny Hamlin led the most laps, but a late race pit stop mishap put him back in the pack and he never recovered. Hamlin finished 14th.
Busch held off a late race charge by both Tony Stewart and Jeff Burton, neither of which were particularly stout early on.
Marcos Ambrose continues to impress. Staying on the lead lap all race long, Ambrose backed his Toyota into the wall. It looked like his good run would be over, but Ambrose fought back and finished 11.
Richmond almost always makes a great race and tonight was no exception. From beginning-after the green flag waved-through turn 4 on the last lap, the race was exciting and full of good old Saturday night racing.
