RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Kurt Busch blew past Kevin Harvick after the last pit stops with under 50 laps to go Friday night and held on in a side-by-side, last-lap duel with local favorite Denny Hamlin to win the Nationwide Series race at Richmond International Raceway.
Driving a car owned by brother Kyle, Busch passed Harvick on the 222nd lap after the green-flag stops. Busch seemed likely to cruise to the victory, but Hamlin pulled up on his rear bumper with a few laps to go, and ducked inside him as they crossed the white line for the final lap. Busch, somehow, held off Hamlin on the outside to win by a nose.
Harvick was third, followed by Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Sam Hornish Jr.
