He stayed in the car for 63 laps before he was pulled from the car and replaced by Martin Truex, Junior. The driver swap happened so quickly that the team didn't lose a lap. Truex would settle into the seat, but the current Busch Series points leader, would soon find trouble as he tangles with veteran Ken Schrader and ends up backing into the outside wall. Truex would be able to continue and he ended up with a 31st place finish. Ricky Rudd and the Wood Brothers were rolling right along until Brian Vickers forced Rudd to slow, and Mark Martin plowed into the back of the car and ended their day. Pole sitter Ryan Newman led a race high 187 laps but he was no match for Kurt Busch and Jeff Gordon in the final laps.
Busch was rolling to the victory, but then Dale Jarrett wrecked Rusty Wallace with seven laps to go to bring out the caution. Gordon would get close, but Kurt Busch wins the Seimens 300 for his second win of the season.

Alain Robert is known for pulling some risky stunts -- and today he pulled his latest, climbing a 25-story building in Jakarta, Indonesia. The 41-year-old made the climb using a window washing track built into the side of the building. But this isn't a first for Robert -- he has climbed more than 70 structures around the world, including the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. He is often arrested and fined for his daredevil antics. (------------)
