Burton Edges Kenseth on Final Lap to Win at Texas

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- There's finally a Texas two-step in NASCAR.

Jeff Burton passed Matt Kenseth on the final lap to become the first repeat winner at Texas. He won ten years after he won the inaugural race. It's his 19th career win.

That denied Kenseth, who won the Busch race Saturday, a weekend sweep. It also ended a four-race winning streak by Hendrick Motorsports. Mark Martin finished third followed by Jeff Gordon.

There had been eleven different winners in the eleven races since Burton won the first race at the mile and a-half Texas track.
