This little fan's sign says it all
The question isn't whether Kyle Busch will win at Bristol Motor Speedway -- it's whether anyone else can find a way to keep him out of Victory Lane.

First off pit road after stops under caution on Lap 429, Busch held off pole-sitter Carl Edwards and defending race winner Jimmie Johnson to win his fifth consecutive race in NASCAR's top three national series at the 0.533-mile short track.

Busch's victory in Sunday's Jeff Byrd 500 was his 20th in the Sprint Cup Series, his first of the season and his second consecutive at Thunder Valley. Busch capped his second weekend sweep in a row at Bristol, having won Saturday's Nationwide Series event.

Kyle Busch
Last August, Busch became the first driver to win three national series races at the same track on the same weekend when he claimed victories in NASCAR's Camping World Truck, Nationwide and Cup series.

Edwards finished second for the second time in four races this season, and Johnson finished third, also for the second time in 2011. Matt Kenseth was fourth and Paul Menard fifth. Kurt Busch, Kevin Harvick, Greg Biffle, Kasey Kahne and Ryan Newman completed the top 10.
