LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Kyle Busch has won on his home track, driving from the back of the field Sunday to win at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Busch won the pole, but had to drop to the back of the field at the start of the race because the engine in his Toyota had to be changed Friday. He calmly marched toward the front, took the lead with 57 laps to go, then lost it during a late round of pit stops.
Busch was third on a restart with 22 laps to go, then chased down Jeff Burton and leader Clint Bowyer to move out front again. Busch had to hold them off on two final restarts for his first victory of the season.
It was Busch's first win at Las Vegas in six career Cup starts.
