Kyle Busch dominates to win Nationwide race at Charlotte

CONCORD, N.C. (AP/WVLT) - Kyle Busch dominated at Charlotte Motor Speedway again Saturday, racing to his sixth Nationwide Series victory of the season and record seventh career win at the track.

Ten years and a day after his Nationwide debut, Busch won for the record 57th time in the series.

Also the Truck Series winner at the track last week, Busch started on the front row and led 186 of the 200 laps. But he needed to manage several late restarts to break a tie with Mark Martin for the most Nationwide victories at the track.

Kasey Kahne was second, followed by Joey Logano, Kyle Larson and Kevin Harvick.

Nationwide Series points leader Regan Smith was 10th.

While Busch has been dominant in the Nationwide and Truck series at CMS, he has never won a Sprint Cup race at the track. He'll look to change that Sunday in the Coca-Cola 600.

Knoxville's Trevor Bayne finished the day in sixth place.
