Kyle Busch wins Nationwide race at New Hampshire

LOUDON, N.H. (AP) -- Kyle Busch overcame three attempts at a green-white checkered finish to keep his lead and win the Nationwide Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Busch won his seventh race of the season Saturday in NASCAR's second-tier series. He snapped a four-race winless streak and won his 58th career Nationwide race.

He had to go long to win this one. Because of the three green-white checkered attempts, the race went 213 laps. It was scheduled for 200.

Busch had enough fuel left in the tank to last the 13 extra laps, allowing him to win from the pole for the fourth time this season.

Brian Vickers was second and Austin Dillon third. Brian Scott and Michael Annett round out the top five.
