50 for Busch at Bristol; All-time winningest driver in Nationwide Series

Kyle Busch edged his teammate Joey Logano at the finish line by .019 seconds on Friday night’s NASCAR Nationwide Series Food City 250 at Bristol Motor Speedway.

[media-credit name=”Brad Keppel” align=”alignright” width=”243″][/media-credit]The margin of victory was the smallest for a race at Bristol since the institution of electronic timing and scoring in ‘93.

“I did everything besides wrecking him. I wish I was in Victory Lane now instead of sitting here in second by like three inches,” Logano said.

This win was the 50th of Busch’s Nationwide Series career and he also broke a tie with Mark Martin to become the all-time winningest driver in Nationwide Series.

“It’s awesome.  Just phenomenal to come at one of my favorite places and one of the team’s favorite places.” Busch said.

Busch has won at least one race at 21 different tracks, with the most coming at Charlotte Motor Speedway (six).

Clint Bowyer finished third, Carl Edwards fourth and Aric Almirola finished fifth.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. holds a five point lead over Elliott Sadler in the series standings after Bristol.
