Busch dominates Nationwide race Kyle Busch has completed an impressive drive for five -- and a long NASCAR doubleheader. Busch won his fifth consecutive Nationwide race at Texas Motor Speedway on Monday, joining two-time series champion Jack Ingram and Dale Earnhardt as the only drivers to win five consecutive races in NASCAR's second-tier series at the same track.
Only about an hour after finishing third in the rain-postponed Sprint Cup race earlier in the day -- 501 miles over 334 laps -- Busch led 153 of the 200 laps in the 300-mile Nationwide race, that was originally scheduled Saturday.
It was Busch's second consecutive Nationwide victory and 33rd of his career. Busch beat Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Joey Logano, the pole-sitter, by 0.688 seconds.
