Busch is the defending champion of the Cup race.

He had to drive hard and brilliant to win the Nationwide race, battling Keselowski for at least 12 laps for the lead. He finally caught up and made the pass with 31 laps to go. As Busch tried to pass Keselowski, Busch didn’t have a clear pass and there was contact and Busch fell back to second place.

Not to be denied, Busch intentionally drove up Keselowski’s bumper and spun him out, which sent the Nationwide Series points leader to 14th place while Busch drove through several late cautions and on to the win.

Jason Leffler finished second and was followed by pole-sitter Elliott Sadler, with Carl Edwards fifth, Trevor Bayne sixth and Clint Bowyer seventh.
