As he has so often in the past, Kyle Busch utterly drubbed the NASCAR Nationwide Series field in winning Saturday’s Indiana 250 race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in his No. 54 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota.

The victory was Toyota’s first at IMS since Gil de Ferran won the 2003 Indianapolis 500.

Busch qualified on the pole and opened up a lead of 2 seconds on the field by Lap 2 and from there was never headed. Brian Scott passed Busch on a restart with six laps to go, but Busch took the lead for good with three laps left.

The victory was Busch’s 59th career Nationwide win and eighth of the season in just 15 starts. He led 92 of 100 laps

Scott finished a career-best second ahead of Joey Logano, Brian Vickers and Kevin Harvick. Vickers won the $100,000 Nationwide Series Dash 4 Cash bonus.

Sam Hornish Jr., the pre-race points leader, suffered an engine failure and finished 34th. Austin Dillon is the new points leader.
