HOMESTEAD, Fla. — Regan Smith made a stellar debut with JR Motorsports Saturday night winning the NASCAR Nationwide Ford 300 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

What was scheduled to be only a tune up for next season when Smith will run the full Nationwide series turned into a schooling as Smith dominated the second half of the event to score his first career Nationwide series win. Behind him, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. did what he needed to do finishing sixth and securing his second consecutive Nationwide series title.

The first half of the race belonged to Kyle Busch. Busch took the lead on the first lap and didn’t look back at one time stretching out his lead to nine seconds during a long green flag period. The first caution came on lap 67 of the 200 lap race. MORE>>>
