After a weekend in the spotlight at Iowa Speedway for last Sunday’s Pioneer Hi-Bred 250, the NASCAR Nationwide Series heads for a hometown showdown at Charlotte Motor Speedway, the History 300 to be held at the track on Saturday afternoon as a companion event to the Sprint Cup Series running of the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte on Sunday evening.
With the Nationwide Series back to running companion events to the Sprint Cup Series, Kyle Busch returns to the seat of his No. 54 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota. Busch won the 2010 installment of this weekend’s race, then behind the wheel of the No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota.
