Carl Edwards took the lead from Busch with 64 laps left. But Edwards' lead was brief. He was forced to pit with a left front tire and moments later Busch was back in front.
Greg Biffle, who led for 43 laps, finished fourth. Tony Stewart, still looking for his first win this season, finished fifth. Stewart announced earlier this week that he would leave Joe Gibbs racing at the end of the season to become part owner and driver with a team that will be called Stewart-Haas Racing next season.
Saturday's race was also the first Sprint Cup race at Chicagoland to start in the late evening and end up at night.
Busch added 195 points to his total with the victory.
"It was a great car out front all night," he said. "I knew when Jimmie got us there that the clean air was going to be it. Luckily we got that caution and got back by him."
