Busch dominates at Indy

INDIANAPOLIS — It was a record-setting day for Kyle Busch in the Indiana 250 for the Nationwide Series race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Busch set a new track record during qualifying with his 31st pole position in 259 series starts to become the all-time record holder for poles.

This was Busch’s eighth win of the year and 59th of his career, most all-time. His win from the pole, the fifth of his career, broke a tie with Sam Ard at the top of the list.

But Busch had to pass Brian Scott with two laps remaining to record the win.

There were four cautions during the race, two in the final 20 laps, each time for debris. The third erasing a 2.5-second lead Busch had over Logano.

The final caution flag waved when Kasey Kahne went through the grass in Turn 2, kicking up dirt onto the track. That set-up a final six-lap run to the checkers.

Scott took the lead on the restart with an inside move entering Turn 1, chased by Busch.

Again entering Turn 1, with three laps remaining, Busch got inside of Scott and pulled away. Scott held on for second followed by Logano.

“This is awesome to win here with all the history,” Busch said. “On the last restart I couldn’t get any grip in Turn 1 and pushed up the track, which allowed the 2 car (Scott) to get underneath. I was able to get him loose and make the final pass.”

Scott said he thought he overdrove the car into the corners following the last restart.

Busch dominated most of the race, only surrendering the lead during pit stops, and then got an additional break with 35 laps remaining.

During the first caution period Busch, Matt Kenseth and Scott elected not to stop for tires and fuel.
