Busch wins Bristol for 50th Nationwide victory

Posted: Updated:

BRISTOL, Tenn. - (AP) - Kyle Busch has won the Nationwide race at Bristol Motor Speedway to become the series' all-time wins leader.

Busch had to hold off a strong challenge from Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Joey Logano to earn his 50th victory in NASCAR's second-tier division.

Busch and Logano drove door-to-door over the final two laps, and Logano briefly surged ahead before Busch beat him by a nose to the checkered flag.

The win broke a tie with Mark Martin to take over the all-time victory mark.

It was fitting for Busch to break the mark at Bristol, where he's practically unbeatable of late. Friday night's win was his 12th at Bristol spanning all three NASCAR national series.

He has won 102 races in NASCAR's top three divisions.
