SPARTA, Ky. (AP) — The Latest on Saturday night’s NASCAR race at Kentucky Speedway (all times local):
Kurt Busch has earned his first NASCAR stage win of the season by winning the first 80-lap segment of the Cup Series race at Kentucky Speedway.
It is the first stage victory for Busch since he joined Chip Ganassi Racing earlier this year, and the first for the No. 1 Chevrolet.
Pole sitter Daniel Suarez led the first 49 laps before dropping back to 14th after a poor pit call to take four tires during an early stop. Almost every other team either changed two tires, or took fuel only.
