JOLIET, Ill. (AP) - Kyle Busch bounced back from a disappointing finish in the Nationwide Series to get the win in the Trucks Series race in a Saturday doubleheader at Chicagoland Speedway.

Busch came from the rear of the field twice to win in his own Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota. It was Busch's sixth win this season and 41st of his career.

The race had been scheduled for Friday night, but rain pushed it back to Saturday, immediately after the Nationwide race.

He finished third in the Nationwide race after leading 141 laps.

Busch finished 1.130 seconds ahead of Matt Crafton, who snatched the series lead from ThorSport teammate Johnny Sauter. Crafton leads Sauter by five points and third-place Ryan Blaney by 16.
