Kyle Busch claims 100th NASCAR win
Kyle Busch achieved a major milestone in his career by winning Saturday's Nationwide Series race, which was his 100th NASCAR victory. The Joe Gibbs Racing driver also tied Mark Martin's record for wins in the second-tier series with his 49th Nationwide victory, which came after a green-white chequered finish at Loudon where he fended off Sprint Cup series rival Kevin Harvick. Harvick said following the race he had been warned a few weeks ago by NASCAR about making any contact with Busch, following a probation period both drivers where subject of after a pit-road altercation in a Sprint Cup series event at Darlington.
