Ford Eco-Boost 400 Update: Kyle Busch shows early pace, Keselowski sixth

After 30 laps, Kyle Busch holds the lead in the Ford-Eco Boost 400 at the Homestead-Miami Speedway. Closing out what he described following Saturday's Nationwide race as the worst season of his career, Busch has one more chance to break into the winner's circle for the second time this season. He won at Richmond in the spring in Sprint Cup, but went winless in both the Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series after dominating those divisions for years.

Carl Edwards, closing out a likewise frustrating season after losing the 2011 championship on a tie-breaker, holds down second spot. Marcos Ambrose, who announced this weekend that he will return to Richard Petty's No. 9 Ford in 2013, led the opening 14 circuits before giving way to Busch and now runs third. Clint Bowyer sits fourth, obviously looking for a much quieter evening than last Sunday's debacle in Phoenix. Matt Kenseth, making his last start in Jack Roush's No. 17 Ford, rounds out the top-five.

Sprint Cup point leader Brad Keselowski holds down the sixth position early on as he seeks the first-career championship in top-level stock car racing for legendary car owner Roger Penske. Keselowski can finish as low as 15th and be guaranteed the title no matter what Jimmie Johnson does. Johnson currently is shown in the 10th position.
