Welcome NASCAR race fans to my NASCAR blog. The NASCAR Nationwide Series raced the Virginia 529 Collage Savings 250 at Richmond International Raceway in Virginia on Friday night. This was going to be a NASCAR race review of the Nationwide race, but there was not much Nationwide racing going on. I won’t be taping this one on Thursday. And I may find other things to do besides watching the rerun.
Sprint Cup drivers qualified for the first three positions and they led all the laps. Except for when 51 Jeremy Clements stayed out after a caution and led a lap before pitting himself before the restart. There were six cautions, two of which were a Sprint Cup driver taking out two different Nationwide drivers. 7 Danica Patrick did spin out 22 Brad Keselowski, the pole sitter, when he didn’t give her much room.
It was an exciting finish (?) when one Sprint Cup driver outran another one and 18 Kyle Busch won the Virginia 529 Collage Savings 250 over 60 Carl Edwards. This makes Kyle the best Cup driver ever to race in the Busch/Nationwide Series. Wow! 6 Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. finished third, followed by 20 Ryan Truex, 09 Kenny Wallace, 2 Elliott Sadler, 88 Aric Almirola, 32 Reed Sorenson, 31 Justin Allgaier and 87 Joe Nemechek. Stenhouse keeps the lead in points, followed by Sadler, Sorenson, Almirola, Allgaier, Jason Leffler, Kenny Wallace and Steve Wallace. Michael Annett and Brian Scott trade ninth and tenth place.
