Even though Kyle Busch is not going to defend his Nationwide Series title this year, he certainly is the dominant driver. Saturday at Dover, Busch put an exclamation point on his season as he led 192 of 200 laps to take the win.
With that victory, he broke the record that both he and Sam Ard set in the Nationwide series as it was his 11th win of the season.
"It's very special," Busch said. "Sam is a great individual and was a great driver in his time."
Joey Logano, who started on the pole, would finish second, followed by Carl Edwards, Reed Sorenson and Kevin Harvick.
Busch originally wanted to run the entire 2010 season, but after talking to Joe and J.D. Gibbs, he admitted the bigger picture was what he needed to focus on.
"I would have liked to have run the whole season," Busch said. "But I look back and I know what the bigger picture is. The bigger picture is Sunday."
The only major incident the entire race came when both Drew Herring and Elliott Sadler got together. Both drivers were fine following the incident, however the track was littered in debris and oil. This forced a 42-minute red flag to clean up the racing surface.
The other major story of the week was Danica Patrick returning to the series. Unfortunately, much like her previous races, it was a less-than stellar run. Early in the race, she was complaining of an ill-handling car and then had a tire go down. She hit the wall coming off the fourth turn, and was forced to head to the garage.
After repairs, Patrick did return to the track, but would finish 35th.
There will be no rest for the weary as the series returns to the track this coming Saturday at Kansas. Green flag set for 3 p.m. ET.
