Friday night's Food City 250 wasn't exactly a battle royal, as far as the outcome was concerned. 

It wasn't even a food fight.

Pulling away from runner-up Brad Keselowski over a green-flag run that consumed the final 72 laps, Kyle Busch won his sixth Nationwide event at the Bristol track.  The victory was his ninth of the season and the series-record 60th of his career.

The victory set up a try for a second weekend sweep at Bristol for Busch, who started with a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series win on Wednesday night.  The Irwin Tools Night Race in the Sprint Cup series will be run tonight at Bristol.  Hear the action on your home for NASCAR, KJ Country 102.3.  Coverage will begin at 5:30pm.

Austin Dillon ran third behind Busch and Keselowski.  Justin Allgaier was fourth, followed by rookie Kyle Larson.
