This week in NASCAR…

Camping World Truck Series: Matt Crafton, driver of the No. 88 Thorsport Chevrolet, won his first pole of the 2010 season Thursday night at Texas Motor Speedway as the. Kyle Busch blew past points leader Todd Bodine on a restart on Lap 127 and held off Johnny Sauter over the final 20 laps to win Friday night's WinStar World Casino 350K.

Nationwide Series: James Buescher takes the pole. Carl Edwards scores the victory, his third of the season. Brad Keselowski's third-place showing is good enough to clinch this season's Nationwide Series championship. It's the first NASCAR title for Roger Penske, Keselowski's car owner.

On another note, Kyle Busch stormed out of the media center after claiming Carl Edwards illegally jumped the final restart and gotten away with it. He used swear words both during the brief media center interview and also in an earlier post-race radio interview.

Sprint Cup Series: Approximately one hour after announcing a full-time multi-year Nationwide Series deal with Kevin Harvick Inc., Sadler put the Sprint Cup Series car he will leave at the end of the season on the pole for Sunday's AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway. Kyle Busch gets spun around, then is immediately caught speeding while exiting pit road. He exploded on the team radio with a string of expletives and then compounded his misery by flashing an obscene gesture to a NASCAR official. A two lap penalty put Kyle finishing in the 32nd spot. Jeff Gordon had a few choice words (and a few fist punches) for Jeff Burton. 1/1,000 of an inch, is just sometimes too close. Denny Hamlin takes the checkered flag AND the points lead. Finally, someone other than Jimmie Johnson.

Next week: Phoenix     Winner prediction: Jeff Gordon
