Kyle Busch Has Fuel To Burn!
The second green-white-checkered restart attempt again saw Busch quickly pull away from the pack. Before Busch could get back to the white flag a multi-car crash involving Paul Menard, Joey Logano and Parker Kligerman in turn three brought out another caution flag.
The red flag was displayed so NASCAR could clean up the debris from the crash, which also helped many of the leaders save fuel. Still, some like Kyle Larson and Justin Allgaier opted to come down pit road for a splash of gas to make sure they could make it to the finish.
The third and final green-white-checkered restart saw Busch shoot out into the lead as second-place Vickers spun his tires. Coming out of turn two third-place Elliott Sadler spun, but he was able to get his car running again and the caution flag didn’t wave.
This time the race would finish under green as Busch held on for the victory, his 58th in NASCAR Nationwide Series competition.
“This Monster Energy Camry was awesome today,” said Busch, who led a race-high 141 laps. “This flat race track you’ve definitely got to feel everything, whether it is in the steering wheel or in your butt. At the start of practice it (the car) didn’t start that well, but Adam (Stevens crew chief) and these guys never gave up.
Vickers ended up second, with Austin Dillon finishing third to claim the $100,000 Dash4Cash bonus. Brian Scott and Michael Annett completed the top five.
