Kyle Busch raced to his fifth Truck victory of the season and 80th overall NASCAR win, passing James Buescher on the final restart Saturday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.  Busch and Kevin Harvick battled for the lead most of the day and it appeared one of them would drive away with the victory. Buescher, though, dipped below both of them with 10 laps left to take the lead. He held it until Ron Hornaday spun into the wall late, bringing out a caution.

That set up Buescher vs. Busch on the restart with two laps left. Busch nudged past Buescher and tagged the wall -- "it knocked my helmet crooked" -- and sped ahead for the victory.

Buescher finished second and Harvick was third.

Busch has 21 career wins in the Truck Series.

"I can't thank the guys on this team enough. All they want to do is come out and win races," Busch said. "That's what we're doing."

Buescher and Busch were clearly unhappy with each other toward the end of the race. After the race ended, Busch pulled up to Buescher and extended his middle finger. Buescher called out Busch after he lost his shot at Victory Lane.

"He just drove us dirty and got the win," Buescher said. "Being that close is one thing, but getting it taken away from you like that is a totally different thing. If you're faster, you're going to pass him. You don't have to race him so dirty and flat-out try to wreck you to try and get the lead and that's what he did."
