Kyle Busch Finally Gets 2008 Nationwide Victory
In his seventh NASCAR Nationwide Series start of the season, Kyle Busch finally got a result befitting his performance.
Entering Saturday's O'Reilly 300 at Texas Motor Speedway, Busch had led a series-best 345 laps without a win. After finishing second to Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Tony Stewart in the first two races of the season, a series of mishaps had blocked the Toyota driver's path to victory lane.
Harvick to Start from Texas Nationwide Pole Position
Thanks to his standing in the Nationwide owner points, Kevin Harvick will lead the field to the green flag for Saturday's O’Reilly 300 at Texas Motor Speedway after Mother Nature played havoc with Thursday's scheduled qualifying session. Rain had interfered with practice early in the day and eventually would wash out time trials, causing the starting line up to be set in accordance to the NASCAR Nationwide rule book. Joining Harvick on the front row will be Clint Bowyer, the current leader in the driver point standings. Carl Edwards and Jeff Burton will roll of from the third and fourth spots respectively.
