Nationwide: Kentucky - Race results

30 June 2012

Series rookie Austin Dillon won his first NASCAR Nationwide race on Friday evening with a dominant victory over Kurt Busch at the end of the two-hour Feed the Children 300 at Kentucky Speedway. It was his first win in 26 series starts.

Dillon led 192 of the 200 laps of the race, and his final margin of victory over Kurt Busch was a whopping 9.828s. Dillon narrowly takes over the lead of the Nationwide points standings from Elliott Sadler as a result, but the car failed post-race inspection and may be penalised mid-week.

Earlier, Dillon had won pole position with a time of 31.359s (172.199mph) just 0.146s faster than Kevin Harvick on the 1.5-mile Kentucky Speedway oval. It was Dillon's second pole in Nationwide, and his first at Kentucky.
