As usual, at the end of the night of the Nationwide Series race at Bristol, there were bruised egos, lost tempers, and some crumpled sheet metal. Nevertheless, it was another Kyle Busch evening when it was all said and done.
Kyle Busch won his sixth NASCAR Nationwide Series event at the .533-mile Bristol Motor Speedway short track Friday night.
The victory was his ninth of the season and the series-record 60th of his career!
In winning for the 15th time at Bristol across NASCAR’s top three series, Busch led 228 of 250 laps. The pole he won earlier in the day was his sixth of the season. Each time, Busch has gone on to win the race.
The victory set up a try for a second weekend sweep at Bristol for Busch, who started with a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series win on Wednesday night. To win Saturday’s Irwin Tools Night Race in the Sprint Cup Series, however, Busch will have to come from the back of the field, having spun during his Cup qualifying attempt Friday afternoon, and doing some body damage to his car.
