 JOLIET, Ill. (AP) - Pole-sitter Kyle Busch dominated from start to finish, leading 195 of 200 laps en route to winning the NASCAR Nationwide Series Dollar General 300 at Chicagoland Speedway on Saturday.

    Busch faced few serious threats, building his lead to seven-plus seconds to earn his 10th win in 20 Nationwide Series starts this season

It was Busch's 61st career win in 264 career Nationwide starts, and his 123rd overall win across all three of NASCAR's top series.

Busch also won Friday's Camping World Truck Series race and goes for a second career weekend sweep in Sunday's opener of the 10-race Chase for the Sprint Cup championship playoffs. Busch previously won races in all three series on the same weekend at Bristol in August 2010

Joey Logano finished second, followed by Nationwide Series points leader Sam Hornish Jr., Austin Dillon and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Brian Vickers, Matt Kenseth, Parker Kligerman, Kevin Harvick and Nelson Piquet Jr. rounded out the top 10.

 Rookie Kyle Larson started 39th and worked his way up as high as third in the final quarter of the race. However, a tire that began rubbing on the 165th lap led to Larson spinning out and hitting the wall 10 laps later, ending his chance of catching Busch. Larson finished 32nd.

NOTES: Kenny Wallace finished 17th in his 900th career start across all three series: Sprint Cup, Nationwide and Camping World. . Eric McClure finished 25th after missing the last four races due to acute renal failure a month ago. . Maryeve Dufault made her second career Nationwide start and first race on an oval, finishing 31st.
