Kyle Busch finished second at Kansas to make it the fifth one-two finish for Joe Gibbs Racing in 2009.

With 173 laps led at Kansas, Busch set a new series record by leading 2,226 laps in 2009. Sam Ard previously held the record with 2,127 laps led in a single season (set in 1984).

Scott Speed (eighth) and Reed Sorenson (10th) also posted top-10 finishes for Toyota.

Camry drivers Jason Leffler (11th), Brian Scott (14th), Brian Vickers (28th), Michael Annett (30th) and Michael McDowell (39th) were also in the field.

Busch extended his lead in the NNS point standings following Kansas, and now sits 245 points ahead of second-place Carl Edwards. Leffler (fourth) is also in the top-five in points after 29 of 35 races.

JOEY LOGANO, No. 20 GameStop/Our House Party Toyota Camry, Joe Gibbs Racing
Finishing Position: 1st

How does this victory feel? "This is awesome. From last week to now -- talk about 'A to Z,' that's awesome. I needed a win to stop everyone talking about me if I'm going to be alright after that roll. I think this should prove it. This is awesome for this whole 20 bunch. They needed a win and it's awesome to give this GameStop Our House Party Toyota back in here. This is a blast racing this car."

KYLE BUSCH, No. 18 NOS Energy Drink Toyota Camry, Joe Gibbs Racing
Finishing Position: 2nd

How did the race unfold for you today? "We had a great race car and we came home second today. The NOS Energy Drink Camry was good. The guys did a great job working on it all weekend long and made it the best car out there all day. Unfortunately, I got beat by another driver. It just wasn't meant to be. It wasn't our day today, I guess. Unfortunately, we're sitting here talking about a second-place finish."

SCOTT SPEED, No. 99 Red Bull Toyota Camry, Michael Waltrip Racing
Finishing Position: 8th

Can you talk about your race? "We had a good car all weekend. We missed a few things and should have had a top-three finish. We made good decisions and aim to continue to bring home a solid finish next week in Toyota's backyard."

REED SORENSON, No. 10 AccuDoc Toyota Camry, Braun Racing
Finishing Position: 10th

JASON LEFFLER, No. 38 Great Clips Toyota Camry, Braun Racing
Finishing Position: 11th

BRIAN SCOTT, No. 11 Ridemakerz.com Toyota Camry, CJM Racing
Finishing Position: 14th

How was your race? "Our No. 11 Ridemakerz Toyota Camry was good. It was a fifth-place car all day. We were running up there and restarted with about 15 to go and I got greedy and tried to put myself in position and it didn't stick. We ended up getting freight trained because I got stuck in the middle. The caution came out there for the last time and we came in and got tires, tried to be a hero, work our way up and ended up finishing 14th. This car deserved to be about a fifth-place car and like I said, I got greedy and cost this team about 10 positions. It's my fault, it was better than that."

Was that final pit stop to change tires? "It was going to be hard to pass those guys with equal tires. So, we came in and got fresh tires and just tried to make something happen."
