Kyle Busch has found victory lane for the first time in 2013. He led the closing laps of the second Budweiser Duel race today and took the checkered flag as the victory.
Kasey Kahne and Austin Dillon were close by but couldn’t make a late charge to overtake Busch on the final lap.
Kyle Busch would take the leader after Jeff Gordon dominated most of the race after he would have to serve a penalty for speeding on pit road. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Terry Labonte would have to serve a penalty as well from the pit cycle.
It was an uneventful race that stay single file for most of the race with some double wide racing early on.
Mike Bliss who needed to race his way in for the Daytona 500 was running strong early on. However, he would get black flagged for a his window net falling down and that put him three laps down. Bliss will not race on Sunday and neither will Brian Keselowski. Both drivers have been the slowest all week long in practices and qualifying.
Kyle Busch will start fourth behind pole sitter Danica Patrick, Jeff Gordon, and Kevin Harvick on Sunday.
