Kyle Busch dominated the Blue Jeans Go Green 300 on March 1 at Phoenix International Raceway, taking his first NASCAR Nationwide Series win of the season.

Busch, a driver for Huntersville-based Joe Gibbs Racing, won the race after an extended rain delay shortened the event by 32 laps.


The victory was Busch's 64th in his Nationwide Series career. He fended off challenges from Kevin Harvick, Brad Keselowski, Kyle Larson and JGR teammate Matt Kenseth to stay in front prior to the caution period for rain.

NASCAR's efforts to restart the race, by drying the track using its "Air Titan" technology, were unsuccessful, but Busch was in no mood to complain.

"I think just the pure dominance we've shown here the last few times that we've come here and the amount of laps we've led with how fast our cars are is pretty phenomenal," Busch said in a post-race press conference. "All the credit goes to (crew chief) Adam Stevens and everybody back at the shop."
