The Nationwide series headed to Bristol Motor Speedway time for the Food City 250.

Kyle Busch  earned the pole with Brian Scott next to him. The opening laps saw Busch stretch his lead over the field and putting cars a lap down as if they were standing still.

By lap 42 Busch went by teammate Elliott Sadler, making only 13 cars on the lead lap.

While Busch was dominating early, other drivers were trying to find the handling of their cars. Contender Kyle Larson got out of the groove and almost in to the wall as did Scott.

It was not until lap 66 that we saw the first caution for debris in turn two. Many of the drivers took the opportunity to come down pit road but leader Busch stayed out.

The lap 72 restart saw Busch leading, followed by Justin Allgaier and Regan Smith. While Busch pulled away to another commanding lead, Kasey Kahne and Austin Dillon made contact with each other as they battle for seventh position.

 On Lap 125, the caution flag waved again as Nelson Piquet Jr. got into the wall and spun.  This time Busch and most of the other drivers come down pit road, knowing they can make to the end of the race from here.  The lone exception is Larson, who stays out and assumes the lead.  

Restarting on lap 110 is Larson, Trevor Bayne who only took two tires and Brad Keselowski.   Bayne and Keselowski made contact jostling for position but by lap 130 Busch is back to the lead followed by Larson.

Drew Herring brought out the third caution as he went for a spin aided by Mike Bliss. Larson gave up valuable track position to pit. The lap 164 restart has Busch and Keselowski leading the field to the green flag.

Three laps later another caution flies for a wreck involving Brian Vickers and Parker Kligerman.  On this restart it is Busch followed by Keselowski coming to the green on lap 178. 

And try as hard as he might, Keselowski just can’t make the pass to get by Busch.  Busch pulls away and wins his second race of the week.

 Rounding out the top 5 are Keselowski, A Dillon, Allgaier and Larson.

Our next Nationwide race is next Saturday night at Atlanta Motorspeedway. See you at 7:30 pm for some night racing.
