Kyle Busch races to 8th Xfinity victory at Bristol

BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) – Kyle Busch got by leader Chris Buescher on an overtime restart and pulled away for his eighth career Xfinity Series victory at Bristol Motor Speedway.

The win Friday night was the 73rd series victory for Busch, who holds the record for most wins in NASCAR’s second tier series. It also was Busch’s third win in six Xfinity Series starts this year.

Buescher was leading when the eighth caution of the race with five laps remaining set up a green-white-checkered finish. He bobbled on the restart as his Ford ran out of gas and Busch sailed by for the victory.

Daniel Suarez finished fifth to pick up a $100,000 bonus from series sponsor Xfinity in its Dash-for-Cash program eligible only to full-time series drivers.
