Kyle_Busch_2013HAMPTON, Ga. (AP) — Kyle Busch will be part of NASCAR’s Chase for the championship.

Busch locked up a berth with his fourth victory of the year, taking the checkered flag at Atlanta Motor Speedway. He emerged with the lead after a rapid-fire series of caution flags near the end, and he held off hard-charging Joey Logano to win by 0.740 seconds.

Martin Truex Jr took third despite a broken right wrist. Kurt Busch and Ryan Newman round out the top five.
