Busch On A Roll At Lowes

22910Jpg
CONCORD, N.C. - Kyle Busch scored his first NASCAR Busch Series win of the season in Saturday night's CARQUEST 300 after he made it back-to-back victories in the May event at Lowe's Motor Speedway.

Busch was able to hold off Sterling Marlin for the win by .503 seconds after the 11th caution flag was thrown with 18 to go for a crash between Jon Wood and Brent Sherman.

"That was awesome," said Busch. "I wasn't really happy in the beginning, but the crew made some great adjustments for me. This is the first Busch win for since the late Ricky Hendrick passed away, so this win is for him."

The win was Busch's sixth series win and second at LMS since last Friday's Truck Series event. He will aim to sweep all three NASCAR events tomorrow in the NEXTEL Cup Series Coca-Cola 600 from the sixth position.

Ryan Newman finished third in his first Busch Series event since 2001.

"It was a great effort for a brand-new team," Newman said after his first-ever Busch race on the 1.5-mile track. "I had a lot of fun tonight."

Greg Biffle, Reed Sorenson and Bobby Labonte rounded out the top six, giving NEXTEL Cup regulars five out of the top-six finishers.

Martin Truex Jr., David Stremme, Kenny Wallace and Ashton Lewis completed the top 10.

Polesitter Kasey Kahne led 40 laps before hitting the wall on lap 54 after the right-front tire went down on the No. 6 Dodge.

Carl Edwards and Clint Bowyer, who are 1-2 in the standings, had a tough night finishing 35th and 32nd respectively. Edwards lost nine points in the standings to Bowyer and Sorenson was able to close within three points of second place.

The NASCAR Busch Series now heads to Dover International Speedway next Saturday for the MBNA RacePoints 200.
