Busch dom­i­nates to notch 11th Xfin­ity win

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Sports -

Kyle Busch took the lead shortly af­ter the start of the fi­nal stage and cruised to his sec­ond con­sec­u­tive Xfin­ity Se­ries vic­tory Sat­ur­day with an­other dom­i­nant per­for­mance at ISM Race­way in Avon­dale, Ariz. Busch was never threat­ened af­ter Stephen Le­icht’s blown en­gine left a cloud of smoke and sent his clos­est pur­suers, Justin All­gaier and Christo­pher Bell, back­ing into the wall with 71 laps to go.

Busch led out of the en­su­ing round of pit stops, then breezed to his 11th se­ries vic­tory at the mile­long track near Phoenix and his 198th ca­reer win in NASCAR’s top three se­ries. Ryan Truex fin­ished sec­ond in his first start of the sea­son. Reign­ing se­ries cham­pion Tyler Red­dick was third, fol­lowed by Cole Custer and Austin Cin­dric.
