Nascar: Kyle Busch dominates again in Xfinity, Alex Labbé took 21st place

Kyle Busch continued his perfect season in the Xfinity series on Saturday at Road America as Quebecer Alex Labbé finished 21st.

After two trips off the track, Busch recovered on the final stage and led the final five laps in his # 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota for his fourth win in four starts this year. It is also his 101st career in the series.

NASCAR only allows Cup Series drivers to compete in five Xfinity races and five Truck Series races per year. Busch is set to attend his last Xfinity event of the season next week in Atlanta.

Busch edged teammate Daniel Hemric by 3.522 seconds.

Michael Annett took third, AJ Allmendinger fourth, and driver Gibbs and Harrison Burton fifth. Road America has had a different winner at each of its 12 Xfinity events.

Allmendinger won the first two stages, relinquishing the lead when Busch passed him on the right in the closing laps.

Austin Cindric, the 2020 winner on the 4,048 mile course, was leading, but his Ford suffered damage during contact with Myatt Snider. Cindric was eighth.

his Xfinity Series race capped off an eventful day for Busch.

Despite setting the second fastest time in practice for the Cup race on Sunday, Busch damaged his Toyota and will have to use a spare car tomorrow. This means that he will start the race at the back of the peloton.
