Busch Wins Kroger 200
Kyle Busch dominated the Kroger 200 benefiting Riley Hospital for Children from O’Reilly Raceway Park, leading 197 of 200 laps to earn his sixth Nationwide series victory on the season. Ironically enough, Busch crushed the competition after NASCAR cut Toyota’s horsepower. So much for that.
The win marks Busch’s 15th win in NASCAR’s top three series this season. (Yawn!)
Top 5: Busch, Colin Braun, Mike Bliss, Scott Wimmer, and Josh Wise.
Cale Gale, Landon Cassill, Joey Logano, David Ragan, and Steve Wallace rounded out the top 10.
Notables: Carl Edwards (11th), David Stremme (13th), Brian Keselowski (15th), Jason Leffler (16th), Clint Bowyer (18th), Brad Keselowski (19th), David Reutimann (26th), and Kelly Bires (36th).
Give a call to Colin Braun and Josh Wise. Both of these young drivers had tremendous days running up near the front all race, and they held on to post good finishes. Brian Keselowski also posted a top 15.
Carl Edwards also deserves a nod for battling back from three laps down to rally to finish 11th.
Mike Bliss also gets a call. He spun early but battled back to finish third.
