CGR_axuUIAALC2YChris Buescher gave new meaning to the word “domination” in Saturday’s Buckle Up 200 Presented By Click It Or Ticket at Dover International Speedway.

Buescher won his second career of the season (in the last three weeks) and third of the year with just under a 12-second advantage over runner-up Matt Kenseth.

Buescher had actually held more than a 16-second lead with two laps to go, but backed off to save the last few remaining drops of fuel he had in his tank, assuring that he’d make it to the finish line.
