CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Kyle Busch is feeling better, thanks.
The NASCACR star shrugged off walking pneumonia to dominate the
Nationwide Series race at Lowe's Motor Speedway on Friday night,
picking up his seventh victory of the year to extend his points lead over Carl Edwards with four races remaining.
Mike Bliss was second, followed by Dave Blaney and Brian Vickers. Edwards finished fifth to drop 195 points behind Busch.
Busch led 137 laps at the 1.5-mile oval, and celebrated his first Nationwide win in nearly three months by doing a couple of burnouts after grabbing the checkered flag.
The win was his 28th career Nationwide victory, but his first since Gateway in mid-July, an eternity for one of NASCAR's top drivers.
