FORT WORTH, Texas – Is there anyone who can stop Kyle Busch?
Busch put together another dominant performance in the NASCAR Nationwide Series Friday night, leading 91 laps en route to victory in the O’Reilly Auto Parts 300 at Texas Motor Speedway.
The victory was Busch’s fourth victory in six races so far this season and third-straight after going winless in the Nationwide Series in 2012.
“This is a fun race. You get to race against all the guys you’ll race against tomorrow night but you get to beat them here on Friday,” said Busch. “I love running Texas and most importantly I love winning here.”
Busch started second and took the lead for the first time on lap 28. Pit strategy shuffled the field on more than one occasion, but Busch was the common denominator throughout the 200-lap event Friday night.
It was Busch’s sixth Nationwide victory at Texas Motor Speedway, breaking a tie with Kevin Harvick for most Nationwide triumphs at the 1.5-mile oval. Busch now has 55th career Nationwide triumphs on his resume.
Brad Keselowski chased Busch throughout Friday’s event, leading 33 laps en route to a second-place finish. Austin Dillon was the top finishing Nationwide regular in third, followed by Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kevin Harvick.
