KANSAS CITY, Kan. – Kyle Busch raced his sixth NASCAR Nationwide Series victory of the year Saturday, making a late pass on Kevin Harvick and holding on at Kansas Speedway.
Busch, also the winner last week at Dover, extended his series-record victory total to 69.
Harvick pulled away at the final restart with 40 laps to go, but Busch got around him with 20 to go and won by 0.767 second. Ryan Blaney was third after starting on the outside of the front row.
Chase Elliott tightened his hold on the points lead with four races to go, finishing 10th after avoiding a collision with Jamie Dick shortly after the three-quarter mark in the 200-lap, 300-mile race.
Regan Smith, who came into the race 26 points behind Elliott, crashed in practice Saturday morning and finished 22nd in a backup car.
