NASCAR: Kyle Busch Brings Regular Dominance to Nationwide Race in Charlotte
There's only so many ways one can write "Kyle Busch dominates Nationwide race", and the story was no different Saturday at the Charlotte Motor Speedway, when Busch led all but 14 laps of the History 300.
With the victory, Busch's sixth of the season, Busch has 57 career wins in the series, extending his all time wins lead over the likes of Jack Ingram and Mark Martin.
"This means a lot to be able to beat guys like Mark Martin, Jack Ingram and all the Nationwide guys that have set previous records before. This is cool for us, and it's for the the team." Busch said after his win.
Kasey Kahne and Joey Logano finished second and third, respectively.
The only non-Cup competitor to finish in the top five was rookie Kyle Larson, who came home fourth. Kevin Harvick finished just behind him in fifth.
"If I'm the only who wins Nationwide races because other guys aren't beating me, then that's their problem," Busch said in regards to Cup drivers dominating the lower ranks.
Regan Smith remains in the points lead after finished 10th in Charlotte; his only finish outside the top ten in 2013 was an 11th place result in Phoenix. Sam Hornish, Jr. retains his second place spot in points with his 12th place finish.
The Nationwide Series rolls into the Dover International Speedway on Saturday, June 1st for the 5-Hour Energy 200 at 2:30 p.m. Eastern time on ESPN and MRN Radio.
