KYLE AND KYLE – The finish of Saturday's Nationwide race, matching "older" Kyle Busch and young upstart Kyle Larson, remained a topic of conversation along pit road Sunday morning. Larson challenged Busch at the last moment as they raced for the finish line, their fenders banging as Busch won the race by about half a car length to conclude one of the best races of NASCAR 2013. The move was judged by many to be almost perfect for Larson, who stirred controversy last month at Daytona when he slammed his way to a win in a Late Model race. He said after Saturday's race he didn't want to build a reputation as being overly aggressive.

BRISTOL, RACE DAY – The jet dryers are making the rounds on a cloudy race morning at Bristol Motor Speedway, where the fourth race of the Sprint Cup season is scheduled at 1 p.m. Kyle Busch, easily the king of the mountain this weekend, will start from the pole for the 500-lap race. Race-time weather? Depends on which forecaster you ask, but, generally, there is a 40-50 percent chance of showers this afternoon. The forecast was much the same Saturday, but the Nationwide race was completed without weather interruption.
