BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) Kyle Busch overcame a pit-road speeding penalty to win the Camping World Truck Series race Wednesday night at Bristol Motor Speedway for his 178th victory in NASCAR's top three series.

After starting from the pole and winning the first two stages on the 0.533-mile oval, Busch started the final stage in 17th after the penalty dropped him to the back of the lead lap. He flew through the field on the high side in his Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota, regaining the lead about halfway through the 90-lap stage in the race that started about two hours late because of rain.

"I knew once we got that penalty that I had to go somewhere other than where everyone else was," Busch said about charging to front on the outside. "It took about 15 laps for it to come in and then it started going fast."
