Having grown up in Danville, VA, a literal stone’s throw from the Virginia/North Carolina border and cut his teeth on some of the region’s most renown short tracks, Lowe’s Motor Speedway has been on his radar long before his schedule for 2009 was announced. Says Sellers, “[Racing at LMS is] a dream come true.”

Nationwide Series Breakdown: 2009 Lipton Tea 250 at Richmond

It was business as usual at Richmond Friday night, as Kyle Busch in his No. 18 ran up front all night, led the most laps, and won the race. Busch, who led four times for 115 laps, had little trouble holding off Carl Edwards following a late restart in notching his third victory of the 2009 campaign. But, much like last season’s race at O’Reilly Raceway Park that saw Busch do the same thing on a short track, there was plenty of racing throughout the pack to make Friday night an enjoyable show.
