FORT WORTH, Texas, April 14 (UPI) -- Kyle Busch completed a weekend sweep at Texas Motor Speedway Saturday, winning the NRA 500 Sprint Cup event after also taking a Nationwide Series race.

Pole-sitter Busch grabbed the lead from Martin Truex Jr. with less than 20 laps remaining and finished 0.5 seconds in front of him, notching his second Sprint Cup win of the season and 26th of his career.

Busch also won Friday's 300-mile Nationwide Series at the Texas track.

Truex, meanwhile, collected his sixth second-place finish since recording his last Sprint Cup win in June 2007 at Dover.

Carl Edwards finished third, while defending champ Greg Biffle placed fourth.

Joey Logano rounded out the Top 5 after starting from the rear of the field due to a failed pre-race inspection.

Penske Racing teammate and ninth-place finisher Brad Keselowski also flunked the inspection.
