In a week that saw the Sprint Cup series take time off over Easter, some of that championship's top drivers nonetheless saw action at the Nationwide series race at Nashville. Carl Edwards won a pitched battle with Kyle Busch with 35 laps to go to win the race, eventually pulling out a comfortable 10-car length lead by the chequered flag. Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano came third and fourth, with Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne the top drivers actually scoring Nationwide series points finishing in fifth and sixth.

In the Camping World Truck series, Kyle Busch dominated the race and passed the 20,000th laps led landmark, but lost the lead to Ron Hornaday at a restart eight laps before the end and had to work harder than expected to claim the win. Former Renault F1 driver Nelson Piquet Jr. came through to take second place at the chequered flag to make history as the best result in history for a Brazilian driver in one of the top three NASCAR categories.
