Busch holds off Larson at Bristol's finish line

BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) - Kyle Busch held off rookie Kyle Larson at the finish Saturday to win the Nationwide Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway.
    
Larson stalked Busch around the bullring as he looked for the right place to make his move. It came as they closed in on the finish line with both drivers held up by lapped cars.
    
Busch chose the low line and Larson went high, then tried to squeeze his way past Busch. Larson's car bounced off of both the wall and Busch's car, but he was nipped at the finish line by Busch.
    
It was Busch's second victory of the season and fifth career Nationwide victory at Bristol, tying him with Kevin Harvick for the most in the series. Busch has a series-record 53 wins.
    
Brian Vickers was third and was followed by Sam Hornish Jr. and Harvick.

Knoxville's Trevor Bayne finished in twelfth place.
