Kyle Busch was too ill to complete Saturday’s Nationwide Series race at Auto Club Speedway. You can bet he got a lot sicker as he watched the final laps of that race.

With 10 laps to go, his car, with Denny Hamlin in the driver’s seat, had the lead and appeared headed to a good finish if not a victory when it made contact with the car of Greg Biffle.

When the smoke from the ensuing wreck cleared, Busch’s car was a mess and so was the big lead which Busch had in the series points lead.

Joey Logano survived the wild affair to win the race but the bigger winner was Edwards, who finished third.

Edwards cut 90 points from Busch’s lead and now trails the leader by 155.

“We came home third but it was still a good points day for us,” Edwards said.

Brian Vickers finished second in the race.

“This is the most fun race I ever had in my life,” Logano said afterward.

He was not so happy earlier in the race when he forced run into the wall by Biffle. But Logano’s crew fixed the damage from that and the driver kept moving forward. Not fixed was his crew chief’s anger as Dave Rogers would call Biffle a “coward” for saying he was going to wreck Logano and then doing it.

It appeared that Biffle was also responsible for the wreck which took Hamlin/Busch out of contention for the victory.

He tried to pass both Hamlin and Brad Keselowski as they fought for the lead, by going up to the wall. However, both the drivers in front of him were already drifting up there. Hamlin suffered the most damage.
