New Hampshire Motor Speedway may be known as the Magic mile, but the magic may have belonged to Kyle Busch as extra laps couldn’t keep him away from continuing his dominance in the NASCAR Nationwide Series.
On Saturday Busch continued his winning ways in the Nationwide Series when he won the CNBC Prime’s The Profit 200 at New Hampshire after three attempts of green-white checkered finishes. The win at New Hampshire gave Busch his seventh win of the year and 58th of his career in the Nationwide Series.
Busch had also won the pole award earlier in the day. Along with another win in the 2013 season, Busch also made history by matching Sam Ard’s record of four wins from the pole.
Busch’s Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Brian Vickers finished in third followed by Austin Dillon, Brian Scott, Michael Annett, Trevor Bayne, Sam Hornish Jr., Regan Smith, Matt Kenseth and Alex Bowman to close out the top 10.
Besides Busch taking home the checkered flag and the trophy, there was also another winner at New Hampshire. Dillon, who had qualified into the four drivers eligible for the Dash 4 Cash prize money at the Magic Mile, walked out the prize winner. Not only did Dillon win an extra $100,000 but has also qualified into the next Dash 4 Cash race.
Heading into the next race Dillon will be joined by Scott, Annett and Bayne as the eligible drivers for the $100,000 at Chicagoland Speedway.
The race at New Hampshire gave fans and drivers more action on the racetrack after attempting three green-white checkered finishes with all the chaos at the end. Even after the checkered flag waived in the air Smith and Elliott Sadler got into it after having some contact on the final restart.
Heading out of New Hampshire the Cup Series drivers continue to dominate the season. Despite that things are heating up for the Nationwide Series drivers even more as they continue to race for the Dash 4 Cash bonus.
