Kyle Busch Wins Nationwide Race At Darlington
DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) -- Kyle Busch took the lead from Joey Logano 18 laps from the end to win his fifth Nationwide race this season and second in three years at Darlington Raceway on Friday night.
The victory also capped a dominant showing by the Busch boys at the track "Too Tough To Tame." Older brother Kurt set a qualifying record to win the pole for the Southern 500 on Saturday night. Kyle was third in Sprint Cup qualifying before dominating the Nationwide race.
The younger Busch started from the pole and was the strongest car throughout. He led for 107 of the 147 laps and finished a second in front of Elliott Sadler. Joe Gibbs Racing placed four in the top five, Busch and Elliott's teammates Brian Vickers third and Matt Kenseth fifth.
