Congrats! goes to #18 Toyota, Kyle Busch’s own truck, for taking the checkered flag in Saturday's 175 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. This was Kyle’s 18th victory in the three NASCAR Series: NNS 10, SC 3 and CWTS 5. This is the fourth victory this year that Kyle won from pole. He lead eight times with a total of 156 laps. During the 166th lap while Busch and Harvick battled for the lead, both were overcome by James Beuscher.

Lap 169 brought on the eighth caution of the race when the turn 4 wall was hit by Hornaday after contact with Timothy Peters. During the restart on lap 174, Kyle made his move. Although Beuscher felt he was driving dirty, Kyle was able to bring the #18 Toyota in for the win with a visit to Victory Lane.

During the 2010 season Kyle started a total of 11 times, winning 5 of those races. Not only that, it gives him a career high of 80 wins in the three NASCAR series.

Kyle will be starting fourth in NASCAR’s first race of the 2010 Chase on Sunday at this same track in the Sylvania 300. A few weeks prior Busch swept all three of the NASCAR Series races at Bristol. Going into Sunday's race with so much momentum will make for a very exciting race.
