FORT WORTH, Texas Was there really any doubt Kyle Busch would wind in Victory Lane following Friday night's Nationwide Series at Texas Motor Speedway?
After all, Busch had dominated the series this year, winning three of the first five races. He'd also dominated the NNS series at TMS, winning five times.
Nothing changed Friday night either in the O'Reilly Auto Parts 300.
Busch, who started second in the No. 18 Toyota, led a race high 91 laps and cruised to his third-consecutive victory in the series and fourth of the year. If it weren't for an engine problem at Daytona and a near-miss at Las Vegas, Busch could be six for six this year in the series.
Instead he'll have to settle for being the first driver to ever win six races in a series at the 1 -mile quadoval and the first driver to ever win four of the first six races in the history of the Nationwide Series. Those aren't bad consolation prizes.
"I love running Texas," Busch said. "Most importantly, I love winning here."
