AVONDALE, Ariz. – Kyle Busch didn’t mind the rain that ended the NASCAR Nationwide Series race early.
He would have been fine with Saturday’s Blue Jeans Go Green 200 continuing, though — his Toyota was that good.
Busch became the first driver to win three straight Nationwide races at Phoenix International Raceway, dominating in an event shortened from 200 to 168 laps on the mile track because of rain.
After a delay of more than two hours, the race was called.

“We’ve been very dominant here in the past and led a lot of laps today,” Busch said. “I felt like we could have won it if it was rain-shortened or whether we went the whole distance.”
Kevin Harvick finished second and Brad Keselowski was third. Derrike Cope of Spanaway was 34th of 39.
