Kyle Busch has won another NASCAR Nationwide race in Texas.

Busch made it three victories in a row at Texas with a dominating performance Saturday, leading a race-record 178 of 200 laps to win the O'Reilly 300. He also become the first polesitter to win a Nationwide race on the 1½-mile high-banked track.

It was Busch's second Nationwide victory this season, and he also has two victories in both the Sprint Cup and truck series. He won 21 races in the three series last year.

Busch finished 1.447 seconds ahead of Tony Stewart, who made a late charge from seventh with four new tires after a caution on lap 188. Brad Keselowski, forced to start 42nd in a backup car, was third.
