|Making Nascar History
|BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) -- Kyle Busch drove into the NASCAR record books with a victory on the high banked, half mile Bristol Motor Speedway to complete a historic driving trifecta.
Busch became the first driver in NASCAR history to win all three national events in the same week. He won the Nationwide race Friday night and the Trucks race Wednesday night.
Busch intentionally wrecked Brad Keselowski to win the Nationwide race, and the two traded barbs and egged on the crowd leading up to the start of the Cup race. But there was never an on-track issue between the two, and Busch lapped Keselowski with a clean pass late in the race.
David Reutimann rallied from a bout with food poisoning to finish second. Jamie McMurray was third.
