Busch wins NCWTS at New Hampshire

Kyle Busch captured his fifth NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) on Saturday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.  Busch passed James Buescher on the final restart with two laps remaining.

Busch made heavy contact to the outside wall while passing Buescher for the lead.

“I tried rubbing off on him and he was still there a little bit and it turned me in the wall.  It was a hard hit, it knocked my helmet crooked.  I wasn’t sure what I had getting down into turn three but those guys got to racing back there and the truck felt fine through three and four.  I was surprised really that it felt the way it did and we were just able to mosey around for the next couple laps and bring it home.” Busch said.

Busch started from the pole and led eight times for 156 of the 175 laps run.

“It was man, it was a close race.  Myself and Harvick just battled it out all day long.  I can tell you what, it’s nice to have a comfortable seat in the SFI Butler seat was comfortable today and going to have the same thing for tomorrow, so that’s good.  I can’t thank these guys and this team enough.” Busch said.

Buescher finished second, Kevin Harvick third, Matt Crafton fourth and Austin Dillon finished fifth.

Buescher was unhappy with Busch and flipped him off after the race.

“He just drove us dirty and got the win.  Being that close is one thing, but getting it taken away from you like that is a totally different thing. If you’re faster, you’re going to pass him. You don’t have to race him so dirty and flat-out try to wreck you to try and get the lead and that’s what he did.” Buescher said.

Todd Bodine continues to lead the unofficial NCWTS standings over Aric Almirola by 257 points.
