Kyle Busch scored a breakthrough win in the Prelude To The Dream charity race Wednesday at Eldora Speedway in Eldora Ohio. Busch’s win came after five previous years of competing in the race staged at the dirt track owned by reigning NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Tony Stewart. The eighth annual charity all-star dirt Late Model race benefited Feed The Children and features top drivers from several auto racing disciplines.
Busch held off late challenges from Kasey Kahne, Clint Bowyer and eventual runner-up Stewart in the 40 lap main event.
“This is cool,” said Busch. “This is what it’s all about when you go dirt racing. It’s a lot of fun. I can’t say enough about (team owner) Scott Bloomquist and all these guys. They give me great racecars every time we come here and I’ve torn them up a few times, including tonight (in qualifying). We were able to come back through, get a good heat race, get a good starting spot for the main event and run up front there with the leaders all night.”MORE>>>
