Busch won the Overton's 200 Xfinity Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway Saturday afternoon.
Busch's biggest challenger, Keselowski, had to serve a pass through penalty after his last pit stop due to his gas can leaving the pit box as the No. 22 exited the box.
The Joe Gibbs Racing driver, who has 175 career wins in NASCAR's three national series, told SiriusXM NASCAR Radio host Claire B. Lang he planned to stop racing in the NASCAR XFINITY Series once he hits win No. 100. "When I get to 100 XFINITY wins, I'm done with XFINITY".
Keselowski, who led a race-high 102 laps, brought his auto to the pits on Lap 170 but had to angle his No. 22 Ford around Kyle Larson's No. 42 Chevrolet, which had started to leave its pit stall as Keselowski pulled in. Ryan Preece (second) posted his first top-10 finish in four races at NHMS and his first top-10 finish in 2017. "Times kind of change and cars change and evolve, but we are still able to get ourselves into position at the right time and I feel positive for what we've been able to do". Xfinity Series retirement, that is.
Ryan Preece, victor of Friday's Whelen Engineering All-Star Shootout modified race, put in a valiant effort to catch Larson, but couldn't get the No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota within striking distance before the end of the stage. Keselowski pulled away from Busch for the final 17 laps to capture Stage 2.
