Busch claimed the checkered flag in the Sharpie 500 at Bristol last time out, holding off Mark Martin and Marcos Ambrose for the victory. Greg Biffle and Denny Hamlin rounded out the Top 5 at the race.

Ryan Newman, Kurt Busch, Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt Jr., and Matt Kenseth made up the rest of the day's Top 10. Brian Vickers was 12th, Carl Edwards was 16th, Clint Bowyer was 21st, Jeff Gordon was 23rd, Juan Montoya was 25th, Kasey Kahne was 28th, and Tony Stewart had to settle for a 33rd-place result.

Kyle Busch moved up to 13th place with his win at Bristol, and he's now 34 points back of Kenseth for the 12th and final berth in the Chase. Vickers is 39 points back of Kenseth in 14th place, with Bowyer 112 points behind in 15th place.

Edwards won the Pep Boys Auto 500 last year, while Kurt Busch visited victory lane in the Kobalt Tools 500 at Atlanta back in March. Edwards also swept the Atlanta races in 2005, while Kurt Busch won the NAPA 500 on the track in 2002.

Bobby Labonte leads all active drivers with six career Cup wins on the track, most recently in 2003. Gordon has four wins at Atlanta, Johnson has three, and Stewart and Martin have two apiece. Kyle Busch won the Kobalt Tools 500 on the track in 2008.

After racing at Atlanta the drivers of the Sprint Cup Series will move on to Richmond for the Chevy Rock & Roll 400 on September 12. The Chase for the Sprint Cup then gets underway on September 20 in the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire.
