Kyle Busch raced to his third consecutive NASCAR Nationwide victory this season and his sixth overall at Texas, leading the 91 of 200 laps Friday night.

Busch is the first six-time winner in any series at the 1½-mile, high-banked Texas track.

While driving a car he owned last season, Busch didn't win in the Nationwide Series. He is back in a Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota this year. After finishing 22nd in the season opener at Daytona, he has four wins and a runner-up finish to push his series victory record to 55.

Busch finished 2.27 seconds ahead of Brad Keselowski, while Austin Dillon was third and Dale Earnhardt Jr. fourth.

The race featured a Texas-record 11 leaders and 22 lead changes.

Sam Hornish Jr. maintained the series points lead despite finishing 34th.
