Kyle Busch ran into some bad luck Friday night at the NASCAR Nationwide race in Darlington.

Kyle Busch was in control, much of the race.  But Matt Kenseth was closing in with two laps to go, when a caution came out.

During the caution, it was discovered that Kyle Busch had a flat tire, and he was taken out of the running, eventually finishing 16th.

That left Kenseth in the lead for the green, white, and checkered finish. 

Shortly after the green came out, caution was waved for a wreck, and Kenseth was declared the winner of the Diamond Hill Plywood 200. 

One of our picks to win, Kenseth, is now a three-time winner of this race. Jason Leffler finished second and Carl Edward's third.

The NASCAR Nationwide series takes a week off before racing in Charlotte on May 23rd.
