From the biggest track to one of the smallest track the NASCAR Nationwide series came to Richmond International Raceway for a Friday night feature.

Kyle Busch won the pole for the race on Friday night and only needed to lead 67 laps to take over the NNS record for career laps led.

The first caution was for Willie Allen who got turned by Michael Annett. It has been a tough few days as Allen’s father passed away Thursday night. On the very next caution Allen got the lucky dog and with a very good race car.

The leader had yet to hit pit road even though there was two quick cautions. Brad Keselowski had taken the lead on lap 60 and was lapping at 24 second pace. Before lap 100 there were only 16 cars on the lead lap.

The third caution for a cut tire on Scott Lagassee, Jr. had all the drivers hitting pit road for adjustments and fresh tires.

Steve Wallace who started seventh on the restart quickly fell back and actually spun out because of a cut tire.

Wallace lost a lap because of the spin and instead of challenging for a top 10 run he was trying to get back on the lead lap.

Speaking of lead lap one driver who qualified in sixth was Trevor Bayne. It was surprising how much he struggled and ended up two laps down. The long green runs really hurt him as they were unable to work on the cars.

Kelly Bires was back in the No.10 car after being released from JR Motorsports just a couple weeks ago. He had a solid race running in the top 10 all night long and coming home a solid 11th.

The guy to beat all night long was Keselowski. Not only did he lead the most laps but he did it in dominating fashion. He was able to hold off his teammate, Allgaier, Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch on multiple restarts.

A late caution for Paul Menard’s cut tire brought the field back to Keselowski and set up for a big decision for the crew chiefs. Everyone but Busch and Allgaier pitted for tires setting up for a wild finish.

On the restart, Greg Biffle who took just two tires, took it three wide with Busch and Jamie McMurray. Keselowski was right behind them and when McMurray and Busch had to let off, Keselowski took advantage.

It came down Biffle and Keselowski battling for the win and in the end Keselowski was able to pull out ahead and take the checkered flag.

The rest of the top 10 were Biffle, Jamie McMurray, Busch, Carl Edwards, Joey Logano, Harvick, Reed Sorenson and Brendan Gaughan.

A couple guys who had a strong run were James Buescher who finished 12th. Another guy who had a good run was Coleman Pressley. At times he was running lap times better or equal to guys in the top 10. He finished off the lead lap in 18th but a good run for him.

Next week the series heads to Darlington Raceway for another Friday night race.
