Kurt Busch won Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway, the last on the current surface that’s served the track since 1997.

RESULTS: Where everybody finished at Atlanta

Ahead of next season, the 1.54-mile oval will be repaved as part of a larger reprofiling that also includes increased banking in the turns and a narrower racing surface.

Kyle Busch, Kurt’s younger brother, finished second. Martin Truex Jr. finished third. Alex Bowman finished fourth. Ryan Blaney finished fifth.
