BRICKYARD 400 CHAMPIONS
2016
Kyle Busch
Joe Gibbs Racing
Rundown: After winning the pole for both the Sprint Cup
series and the Xfinity series races at the Brickyard,  Kyle
Busch was unstoppable as he ran away with both races.

Quote: “I knew when we got the checkered, I just didn’t want
to come in quite yet,” said Stewart, a two-time Brickyard 400
winner. “I wanted to run one more lap, and Jeff was around
us before that last green run, and I told my spotter to go get
his spotter and say ‘after this thing’s over we need to go a
lap around here together, because most likely is the last
time we’ll both get to do that.’ I couldn’t think of a better guy
to share that with than Jeff.”

Seen The Last of them Hoosiers?  After retiring last
year, Jeff Gordon returned to race in the Brickyard 400,
subbing for Dale Earnhardt Jr. who was missing a few
races dealing with a concussion.   Gordon finished in 13th.  
Tony Stewart is retiring this year and finished in 11th place
in his final Brickyard 400.

due to thunderstorms.  The race resumed two hours
later.  Pole sitter Kyle Busch led through the first and
second stages, followed by fellow Toyota driver
Martin Truex, Jr. On lap 111, They got together and
hit the wall!  The race had 2 more red flags and 14
yellows!  The most of any Brickyard 400 ever!  
There was a wreck on every restart.  With 2 laps to
go, Jimmie Johnson loses it in T3 while going 3-wide
with Kahne and Keselowski!.
The race goes into overtime as the sun is falling out
of the sky, then another big wreck.  Finally as we
near 9pm, Kahne grabs the lead from Keselowski
before the inevitable crash, and he passed the
Overtime Line before the track through the yellow,
and won for the first time since 2014.

Quote: "And this race had, you know, some key
moments that I think we’ll probably play back for the
next five or 10 years."- Brad Keselowski

They changed the date from the middle of summer to the first
of September, hoping for cooler temps and a more pleasant
experience for the fans.

It rained from Friday to Sunday and all practice and qualifying
was cancelled as well as the all day concert planned for Friday.

Both Nascar races (Xfinity 250 and the Cup 400) were ran on
Monday.  This was the 25th Brickyard 400 and the first time
the race had ever been postponed to the next day.

A late caution bunched up the pack. With two laps to go,
Brad Keselowski bumped his way by Denny Hamlin for the
lead and won the race.

This was Team Penske's first Brickyard 400 victory.
