Rain again this year played a role in another NASCAR race as drivers were out west to Phoenix for 200 laps.  Qualifying went through without as hitch and Brad Keselowksi was able to win the poll the event. Brad started the race out leading laps as Kyle Busch got hot and took over the race lead on lap 5.  Then at lap 20 it was the first caution of the day as Daryl Harr wound up whacking the wall with some help from Brad Keselowski.  Brad and a small bunch of cars pit. During the caution time Will Kimmel wound up real slow on the track and it extended the caution time. This led to a long green flag where Brad Keselowski was slowly moving up through the field as Kyle Busch was leading lap after lap.  Around lap 85 and it was green flag pit stop time and Kyle Busch finally pitted on lap 88 giving Brad Keselowski the lead of the race.  The caution though came out on lap 90 as Derrike Cope hits the wall. The caution brought down Brad Keselowski and a small bunch of cars down pit road.  Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch though stay out.  The next good green flag run occurs and Kyle Busch just goes on to lead more and more laps.  At lap 134 the caution comes out as Jamie Dick blows an engine.  Leaders pit and Kyle Busch wins the race off pit road. The green flag drops and Brad Keselwoski gives a great fight to get the race lead and could not do it.  Kyle Busch gets to lead more laps.  At lap 165 it was caution time again as Ryan Reed wrecks.  Three laps go and the rain finally shows up at the track to put the race under a red flag condition. "Car stepped out on me," said Ryan Reed. He also complained of rain on the track. After 90 plus minutes of track drying time the race wound up finally getting called and Kyle Busch wound up winning the event.  This marks the third win in a row for Kyle Busch at this track in the Nationwide Series.
