CONCORD, N.C. — Kyle Busch has shown repeatedly he can win at Charlotte Motor Speedway on the Nationwide and Truck series.

Busch dominated Saturday, racing to his sixth Nationwide Series victory of the season and record seventh career win at the 1.5-mile track. He also was Truck Series winner at the track last week, his fifth victory in that circuit at Charlotte.

Ten years and a day after his Nationwide debut, Busch won for the record 57th time in the series. He started on the front row and led 186 of the 200 laps.

Kasey Kahne finished second.
