After winning Saturday’s NASCAR Nationwide Series race, Kyle Busch is well on his way to scoring a three-race sweep at Dover International Speedway.

The NNS victory came the day after Busch won the Camping World Truck Series race at the Monster Mile.

On Sunday, Busch will have a chance to sweep Dover when he drives in the Sprint Cup Series race. A victory in that race would give him his second three-race sweep as he did it August of 2010 at Bristol Motor Speedway.

On Saturday, Busch led the final 124 to capture Saturday’s Buckle Up 200 presented by Click It or Ticket.

“Our (Sprint Cup) car has been really fast here,” Busch said when asked about his chances for a sweep. “We unloaded fast. I think we’ll be all right tomorrow. Our guys gave me a great piece (to drive) today.”

Busch’s victory ended Joey Logano’s attempt to win a record-tying fifth consecutive Nationwide race at Dover International Speedway.

“Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end,” said Logano, who finished third. “It was kind of frustrating out there today. I felt like we had the winning car, but we were too loose that last run and couldn’t pass anyone. We never really had good enough restarts on the inside.”
