"We raced hard, I was rubbin' him and he was doing what he had to do," said Vickers. "It was an awesome race and I had a lot of fun. This team deserved it, going through what we have this season."
Vickers appeared to be on his way to Victory Lane at the Texas Motor Speedway last March when a controversial penalty for an illegal pass on a restart cost him the win.
After making his move, Vickers expanded his lead to the finish line, while Hmiel faded all the way to fourth place. Hmiel led a race-high 153 laps including the first 111 of the race.
"He really has a lot of talent and is just a good young man," said owner Rick Hendrick. "It's hard to believe he is only 19-years-old."
Riggs expanded his championship lead to seven points over
The next race in the Busch championship is the Cabela's 250 from the Michigan International Speedway on Saturday, August 16th.
