    After 400 miles in the Quaker State 400, it came down to two brothers in the final two laps to determine who was going to take home the victory.

    Kurt Busch started the race on the outside of row two and already proved he was driving a dominant car, taking the stage one win 80 laps into the race. However, brother Kyle Busch, a two-time winner of the Quaker State 400, took the lead on lap 104 and drove away to win the second stage at lap 160.
