    Kyle Busch’s victory from the pole in the NASCAR XFINITY Series race adds to his impressive resume at Kentucky Speedway. 

    A call to change four tires and then stay on the track while others made their final pit stops paid off with a repeat victory for Kyle Busch in the NASCAR XFINITY Series’ Alsco 300 at Kentucky Speedway.
