Kyle Busch survived three attempts at a green-white-checkered finish to win Saturday’s NASCAR Nationwide Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
Busch held a 1.7 second lead over Brian Vickers with two to go in Saturday’s 200 lap race before the yellow flag flew for Hackenbracht’s stopped car in turn 2, leading to NASCAR’s version of triple overtime.
The first attempt at a G-W-C finish was halted by Landon Cassill’s stalled car, with the second attempt ending when a four-wide melee sent Paul Menard backwards into the fence and Parker Kligerman buried in the infield grass.
NASCAR decided to throw the red flag for cleanup, which infuriated several drivers and sent the Twitterverse into a downward spiral spewing with controversy.
I don't like throwing a red cause cars r running out of gas. We all know there's a chance of 3 attempts before race starts. Rules are rules
