McMurray wins at Charlotte

CONCORD, N.C. (AP) -- Jamie McMurray has picked up another victory in his comeback season, beating all the championship contenders at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

McMurray is not eligible for the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. But he blew past title contender Kyle Busch on a restart with 21 laps to go in Saturday night's race to earn his third win of the year.

McMurray also won the season-opening Daytona 500 and the Brickyard 400.

Busch had the most dominant car but settled for second after a late caution erased his lead and gave McMurray the opening he needed to take the win.

Four-time defending series champion Jimmie Johnson came back from an early spin that dropped him to 37th to finish third.
