Busch Wins Back-to-Back at Phoenix
Kyle Busch liked the taste of victory so much that he came back for a second helping. After picking up his first win of the season in NASCAR's Nationwide Series last Saturday at Texas, Busch staved off a determined challenge from Carl Edwards to win Friday night's Bashas' Supermarkets 200 at Phoenix International Raceway. In a green-white-checkered-flag finish that took the race two laps beyond its scheduled 200 laps, Busch crossed the finish line .241 seconds ahead of Edwards.
