Busch Makes History in History 300

CONCORD, NC – If you were at Charlotte Motor Speedway this morning, you would have been tempted to check the calendar. Saturday morning started out feeling more like it should be October, than May, with local temperatures breaking all-time lows overnight.

However, Kyle Busch made sure that the day ended hot. Busch smoked the field in the 32nd History 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway to earn his 57th career Nationwide Series race – the most of any driver. Busch’s Monster Energy Toyota led 186 of the 200 laps and moved him ahead of Mark Martin as the all-time winningest driver at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Busch was really never challenged throughout the race.  A series of late caution flags was the biggest challenge he had to overcome, each time, holding off race runner-up Kasey Kahne. It appeared that Kahne’s Great Clips Chevrolet got stronger as the race went on and appeared to be the only one had anything for Busch at the end. Sprint Cup regulars, Joey Logano and Kevin Harvick were third and fifth respectively.

Rookie Kyle Larson continued to show signs of his potential greatness, finishing third. Trevor Bayne was sixth, Justin Allgaier was seventh, Matt Kenseth, Parker Kligerman and points leader Regan Smith rounded out the top ten.

Allgaier was the only driver in the top five of points who was able to cut into Smith’s lead today. Smith increased his points lead over Sam Hornish Jr by one point and will head to Dover with a 29 point lead. Hornish finished twelfth. Elliot Sadler was 13th and Brian Vickers was eleventh and remains in fifth in points, 49 behind Smith.
