Kurt Busch won the rain-shortened Quicken Loans 400 at Michigan International Speedway on Sunday.

The race was called after 138 of 200 laps because of severe weather. It was the 4th red flag of the day.

The victory was Busch’s second of the Sprint Cup season. He took the checkered flag in the Toyota Owners 400 in April.

Kyle Larson had the lead, but was forced to pit just 3 laps before the rain came back. That’s when Busch went out in front.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. placed second and Martin Truex Jr., last weekend’s winner at Pocono, was third.

Matt Kenseth and Daytona 500 winner Joey Logano rounded out the top 5.
