Daniel Suarez passed Kyle Busch toward the end of the Xfinity Series race at Michigan and held on for his first career victory in NASCAR's second-tier circuit.

Busch led much of the 125-lap Menards 250 race Saturday, but couldn't stay ahead of the Mexican driver for the final two laps.

Busch, Paul Menard, Erik Jones and Elliott Sadler finished in the top five.

Jones raced with "Dave," instead of his name painted above the driver side window. His father, Dave Jones, died this week after a short bout with cancer. He was 53.

Gordie Howe was mentioned during the invocation before the race about 70 miles west of Detroit, where he played much of his career for the Red Wings. Howe died Friday at 88.
