Kyle Busch rolls to 8th Nationwide win of season
Kyle Busch kept on winning.
Busch held off Edwards on a late restart to win the NASCAR Nationwide race at O’Reilly Raceway Park on Saturday night, collecting his eighth victory of the season while sending a friendly reminder about who drives the dominant car in NASCAR’s No. 2 series.
Busch led 144 laps and had just enough at the end to fend off Edwards, who wasn’t about to send Busch into the wall a week after punting Keselowski on the final lap in St. Louis, a move that forced NASCAR officials to dock him 60 points and fine him $25,000.
“It was good, hard clean racing,” Busch said. “That’s what happens when you race each other cleanly over time and with respect, you get respect back.”
The rivals found themselves running within a couple car lengths of each other for a long stretch at the beginning of the race and again on a late restart. This time each driver made sure to give the other a wide berth.
“We gave each other plenty of room, and that’s good,” Edwards said. “Hopefully, we can keep doing that going forward.”
“I thought it was pretty decent racing by most everybody, just good hard short-tracking,” he said.
Busch appeared to be in the clear before Joe Nemechek hit the wall with less than 10 laps remaining. The caution set up a green/white/checkered finish, with Busch opting to take the outside lane on the restart.
