Nationwide Series Breakdown: 2010 Great Clips 300 at Atlanta

For all the tire strategy that made Saturday night’s Great Clips 300 both interesting and confusing (at one point Kevin Harvick had the entire field lapped after taking new tires under yellow while the rest of the leaders stayed out), it didn’t pave the way to victory lane.

Nationwide Series Breakdown: 2010 Bubba Burger 250 at Richmond

After winning the pole Friday afternoon, Kyle Busch quipped that he would lead a lot of laps under the lights at Richmond… assuming that Brad Keselowski didn’t take him out. Keselowski didn’t have to. In one of the most dominating performances the Nationwide Series has seen from a non-JGR car in recent memory, Keselowski led …
