Kyle Busch wins the Buckle Up 200 at the Monster Mile

Bo_ee0pCIAAkvBuFor the second time this weekend at Dover International Speedway, Kyle Busch finds himself in victory lane, as he adds to last night’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) win with victory in Saturday’s NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) Buckle Up 200.

Busch, who led the most laps – 124 out of 200, received his third series win of the 2014 season, his thirty-third series career win and his fourth series win at Dover International Speedway. Busch also became the first driver to win both NCWTS & NNS races in the same weekend at Dover International Speedway, and is the only driver to win all three NASCAR national series in one weekend – Bristol 2010.

Trevor Bayne came up short by 1.005 seconds to finish second, and he was followed by pole-sitter Joey Logano finishing third, Matt Kenseth fourth and series Sunoco Rookie of the Year (ROTY) candidate, Chase Elliott finished fifth.

Rounding out the top-ten finishing positions were Kyle Larson bringing home sixth, Brian Scott seventh, ROTY candidate Ty Dillon eighth, Elliott Sadler ninth and the current series points leader, Regan Smith taking tenth-place.

With points leader Regan Smith finishing a place behind Elliott Sadler (second in points) Regan leaves Dover win a 4-point lead over Sadler in the standings.
