AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Kyle Busch overcame a mid-race gaffe on pit road with a dominating performance, leading 142 laps to win his fifth Nationwide Series race at Phoenix International Raceway on Saturday.
Busch started from the pole and shook off a speeding penalty to pit road with what was easily the fastest car during the 200-lap race around PIR's mile oval.
He eclipsed 11,000 career laps during the race and picked up his 52nd Nationwide victory, extending his own record. Busch has won seven times at Phoenix, including once in Sprint Cup and twice in the trucks series.
Brad Keselowski finished second and Justin Allgaier was third. Trevor Bayne finished fourth, followed by Elliott Sadler.
