NASCAR At Sonoma Results: Kurt Busch Wins Toyota/Save Mart 350

Kurt Busch won Sunday's Toyota/Save Mart 350 at the Infineon Raceway for his first win of the 2011 season and his first on a road course.

Jeff Gordon was second, followed by Carl Edwards, Clint Bowyer, and Marcos Ambrose.

Polesitter Joey Logano, defending race winner Jimmie Johnson, Martin Truex Jr., Kevin Harvick, and Brad Keselowski rounded out the top-10.

The race was, unsurprisingly, marked by a number of on-track incidents that ruined the day for several drivers. Tony Stewart was running third when he was crashed by Brian Vickers for payback for an earlier incident. Juan Pablo Montoya, meanwhile, had worked his way up into the top-five when he was spun by Brad Keselowski after running into a number of drivers throughout the race.

Busch's win completes a turnaround for an organization that was in a freefall in the spring. Busch was outspoken, often in profanity laced tirades, on his radio about his feelings on his No. 22 Dodge. Since then, he has recorded three-straight pole positions and now his first win since last year's Coca-Cola 600.
