Kyle Busch , no surprise, went to victory lane once again Saturday in the New England 200 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon. Kyle Busch scored his 36th victory and set a new record becoming the driver who has led the most laps in Nationwide Series competition a impressive 8,117 laps. Busch also scored his sixth win of 2010 and held off Brad Keselowski and Carl Edwards to do so Saturday at New Hampshire.

Danica Patrick's return to the series was also on Saturday as she had been away a few weeks with Indycar. Patrick wasn't really strong in practice and qualified 25th. The day would start off rough as she and Morgan Shepherd made contact in turns one and two on Lap Seven. Danica would finish in 30th on Saturday in her return to the series, and hopes for better things in the future.

A bad year continued to get worse as Ricky Stenhouse Jr and Tayler Malsam got caught up in an accident on Lap 94. At Lap 147, Mike Bliss said goodbye to an engine as he left a white trail of smoke around the magic mile.

At Lap 177, Mark Green got into the wall, bringing out a late race caution as teams and drivers had to hold off the rain as it was threatening throughout the day. Kyle Busch, on the restart at Lap 182, would take off and say goodbye to the field as he went on to victory lane for the second consecutive year at Loudon.

The NASCAR Nationwide Series points leader is Brad Keselowski, who has been the leader for awhile now. The Nationwide Series COT car makes its debut next weekend at Daytona. Dale Earnhardt Jr will also be running the retro No. 3 Wrangler blue and yellow Impala at Daytona next Friday in what will be a amazing race.
