BRISTOL, Tenn. — Kyle Busch got his 16th career win at Bristol Motor Speedway – more than any other NASCAR driver at any other track – by holding off Kyle Larson after a late restart in Saturday’s Nationwide Series race.
Busch has now won three consecutive Nationwide races at Bristol since last March, when he and Larson also went 1-2 to the finish.
Of his 16 national wins at Bristol, five are in the Sprint Cup Series, seven are Nationwide and four are in the Truck Series.
“I definitely like coming to Bristol, I always have,” said Busch.
Busch now has 65 career Nationwide Series wins.
