#NASCAR – After winning both the Camping World Truck Series and Nationwide Series races at Phoenix International Raceway, Kyle Busch seemed to be on the way to a Weekend sweep as he took the lead of Sunday’s Subway Fresh Fit 500 from Tony Stewart after the last restart on Lap 291. But Jeff Gordon passed Stewart on the next lap and methodically cut into Busch’s lead, taking the lead on Lap 304 of 312 and scoring his first Sprint Cup Series win since April 2009. The victory was Gordon’s 83rd and ties him with Cale Yarborough for fifth on the all-time list. Darrell Waltrip is fourth with 84 wins.
