Kyle Busch sweeps Bristol again, Bayne finishes 34th

BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) -- Kyle Busch can't be beat at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Busch won the Sprint Cup on Sunday to complete a weekend sweep at the Tennessee bullring. He also won the second-tier Nationwide Series race on Saturday, and has won the last five races at Bristol dating back to a three-race sweep last August.

It was Busch's fifth career Cup victory at Bristol -- tying him with his older brother, Kurt, who also has five Bristol victories.

Carl Edwards finished second and defending race winner Jimmie Johnson was third.

Matt Kenseth finished fourth, Paul Menard was fifth and was followed by Kevin Harvick, Kurt Busch and Greg Biffle.

Kasey Kahne and Ryan Newman rounded out the top 10.

Racing on his home track, Knoxville's Trevor Bayne finished 34th.
