Kyle Busch took charge of the Pure Michigan 400 Sprint Cup race on the two mile Michigan International Speedway oval with 16 laps to go, and even a late caution caused by his brother Kurt which gave Jimmie Johnson an opportunity to close up wasn't enough to give the driver of the #18 any trouble.

It's Kyle's 23rd career Cup victory, but his first at Michigan. And it comes with a very special bonus prize, with Kyle Busch now confirmed through to the post-season Chase for the championship title.

It was another outstanding day for Brad Keselowski whose hot streak continues with third place, but a bad day for Denny Hamlin and Carl Edwards - while Tony Stewart was left telling reporters that with the form they have right now with the #14, he didn't even think it was worth getting into the Chase.
