Kyle Busch led 190 of 200 laps in Saturday’s Xfinity Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and went on to get the victory.

Busch has now led to 17,064 laps in the series and won for the fifth time in 11 races at the 1-mile oval.

“I guess they’re big numbers,” said Busch, “I really don’t know what big numbers are, and records are made to be broken.

“There may be somebody like me that comes along down the road that does the same thing that I’ve been fortunate enough to do… Running in this series is something fun for me to do, cool for me to do, and it also helps me out and gets me a little more experience.”

Erik jones ran second and Brad Keselowski third. Daniel Suarez came home fourth, followed by Austin Dillon.

“We had a decent day,” Keselowski said. “A little better than where we have been, which was something to be proud of, but of course we want to get to Victory Lane with the (No. 22 Team Penske) Ford. We aren’t quite there, but we’ll keep pushing.

“That was a step in the right direction overall for sure.”
