Busch Wins at Indy
Kyle Busch took the checkered flag at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Saturday's Indiana 250.
Busch managed to hold off the defending Indianapolis race winner, Justin Allgaier, in the final four laps to take the checkered flag for the fourth time this season.
After starting from the pole, Busch maintained top three for the first two stages, finishing third in Stage 1 and second in Stage 2.
With only a handful of laps left, Tyler Reddick and Christopher Bell got into one another as they were battling for the lead bringing out a late race caution. The wreck eliminated two of the front-runners, giving Kyle Busch the top spot with only seven laps to go.
The No. 18 Joe Gibbs Toyota took the lead on the final restart. Justin Allgaier trailed Busch by only .132 seconds as the laps were winding down. Busch held on to win for the 96th time in his career, adding to his series record.
"I'm really proud of this team. This Toyota Supra was awesome today, and glad we got to take it to Victory Lane."
Allgaier, the defending Indianapolis winner, finished second, followed by Noah Gragson, Jeb Burton and Justin Haley rounding out the top-five.
The Xfinity Series will be back in action for the regular season finale on Saturday, SeptEmber 14 at 7:30 PM on NBCSN.
