Kyle Busch ties Rusty Wallace on wins list with victory at Pocono

Kyle Busch won at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pa., on Sunday to move into a tie for ninth on the NASCAR Cup Series victory list.

Busch, who topped 200 career wins across all three national series this season, won for the 55th time in Cup competition and matched Hall of Fame driver Rusty Wallace on the list.

Busch had the dominant car down the stretch and won for the fourth time this year and first time in nearly two months. Busch has spent most of the past few months complaining about NASCAR’s current rules package designed to increase side-by-side racing and manufacture competition.

Brad Keselowski was second and Erik Jones third.

IndyCar: Scott Dixon won the Detroit Grand Prix, his first victory of the year and 45th of his career, just hours after being honored by Queen Elizabeth II.

The Chip Ganassi Racing driver from New Zealand finished nearly two seconds in front of Marcus Ericsson, Will Power, Ryan Hunter-Reay and Alexander Rossi.

Indianapolis 500 champion Simon Pagenaud finished 17th after a collision on the opening lap.

Earlier in the day, Queen Elizabeth II announced Dixon was being given the Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit in recognition of his services to motor sports.
