Kurt Busch pulled away from Kevin Harvick and went into cruise control.

There were less than 30 laps to go, and Busch thought he had the fastest car.

“With 20 laps to go, I thought we had it in the bag,” he said Friday night.
Then Denny Hamlin “came out of nowhere,” Busch said, and he had to hold him off in a stirring side-by-side, last-lap duel to win the Nationwide Series race at Richmond International Raceway in a car owned by his younger brother, Kyle.
