Kyle Busch Puckers Up After Indy Nationwide Race
Kyle Busch dominated the majority of Saturday's 250-mile event and survived a late race scare to win the Indiana 250 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Busch, who led 92 of the 100 laps, lost the lead briefly to Brian Scott on the final restart but managed to fight back to win for the first time at Indianapolis.
"It's pretty awesome to be able to win here," Busch said in victory lane. "Whether you're driving Nationwide or Cup, Sports cars, Formula One, MotoGP, anything. It's cool to win at this place with all the history and all the automobiles that have raced on this surface."
Busch's victory marks Toyota's second ever win at Indianapolis, the first in a stock car. Toyota found victory lane with Gil de Ferran in the 2003 Indianapolis 500.
Championship contender Regan Smith also suffered engine issues, but was able to salvage a 19th place finish. He trails Dillon by six points.
Not sure if we had bad luck or good luck today. There is absolutely no way that motor should have survived till the end. Glad it did.— Regan Smith (@ReganSmith) July 27, 2013
