Kyle Busch is in a position to “sweep” the Bristol Motor Speedway weekend races! On Wednesday Kyle won the truck race driving his own machine, the KBM #18 Toyota Tundra. ON Friday night Busch used a little “Bristol” on the field. He used the old Bristol bump/dump and run to send Keselowski up high and out his way enroute to this victory in the Food City 250. This is his 6th Nationwide Series win out of 13 races that he has competed in the 2010 season.
With 32 to go, Busch eased in front of Keselowski on the low side and moved up in front of Keselowski. Keselowski immediately put the bumper to Busch who wiggled to give the lead back to Keselowski.
“Just hard racing man,” Keselowski said. “I was going for it. I was on the outside, he was on the inside, and he got a great run through (turns) one and two. He did a good job. He got up…almost cleared me and kind of took for granted that I would let him in line and I didn’t. That’s his right; nothing to complain about. We’re going to keep working on our #22 Discount Tire Dodge for next week, the week after and every other week.”
Almost immediately, Busch regained control, moved to Keselowski’s rear bumped and spun him.
From there, Busch survived a couple of restarts to get the victory.
“I thought I had him cleared and moved up in front,” Busch said. “He decided he’d just run in the back of me and put me in the fence. That’s Brad Keselowski, and I went down in the next corner and dumped him. He does it to everybody else. Why can’t I do it to him?”
The fans booed Busch as he got out of his car during burnouts and then in victory lane!
Here is the unofficial results for the Bristol Food City 250.
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
