Busch wins the NNS Tech-Net Auto Service 300 at Charlotte

CONCORD, NC – Kyle Busch overcame some early troubles to win Saturday’s Nationwide Series (NNS) Tech-Net Auto Service 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway in route to his second straight victory.

Busch had to make an unscheduled pit stop on lap 48 when he thought he might have a problem with the right-front tire. The stop caused him to go one lap down. Then Busch was caught speeding while exiting pit road and had to serve a pass-through penalty. This resulted in another lap down, but it was early in the race.
 
Busch radioed in to his crew that they would do something they’ve never done before, come back from two laps down and win the race. 
 
“I’ve never done this before. Let’s do it.” Busch said.
 
Busch battled back through the field and after a yellow flag on lap 138, Busch came out the leader of the race.
 
With help from his teammate Joey Logano, Busch held off Brad Keselowski after the final green-white-checkers restart for his fifth win of the season.
 
“That 18 and 20 cars are really good and they paired up pretty good on the restart and out-drafted me. I feel like we had a stronger car, but Kyle did a great job, great restart.” Keselowski said.
 
Logano finished third, Justin Allgaier fourth and Ryan Newman finished fifth.
 
Keselowski holds a 1 point lead over Busch in the series standings. But Busch will not be driving the No. 18 Toyota full time for the rest of the season. He will turn his attention solely on his Sprint Cup team due to the “strain” on trying to drive in both series at some upcoming events.
 
“I’m really going to miss him. We bring out the best and worse in each other.” Keselowski said. “We’re doing everything we need to do; we still have the points lead. That really means a lot to this team. It’s up to me to go into Nashville with the points lead before some of the Cup guys quit. This kind of proves that we can do this.”
