RELATED: Results " Standings LOUDON, N.H. -- Another NASCAR XFINITY Series race, another set of milestones for Kyle Busch. Leading 190 of 200 laps in Saturday's AutoLotto 200 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Busch held off Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Erik Jones in the closing laps to claim his 82nd career victory, extending his own series record. In the process, Busch raised his total of XFINITY laps led to 17,064, once again extending his own record. Busch won for the fifth time in 11 races at the Magic Mile and the sixth time in 10 starts this season. "I guess they're big numbers," said Busch, who ran the entire race on one set of left-side tires and arrived at the finish line 1.499 seconds ahead of Jones, who had taken four tires on his final pit stop under caution on Lap 178. "I really don't know what big numbers are, and records are made to be broken. "There may be somebody like me that comes along down the road that does the same thing that I've been fortunate enough to do … Running in this series is something fun for me to do, cool for me to do, and it also helps me out and gets me a little more experience." Brad Keselowski ran third but didn't have an answer for the top two JGR cars. Daniel Suarez came home fourth, followed by Austin Dillon . "We had a decent day," Keselowski said. "A little better than where we have been, which was something to be proud of, but of course we want to get to Victory Lane with the (No. 22 Team Penske) Ford. We aren't quite there, but we'll keep pushing. "That was a step in the right direction overall for sure." Busch may have been dominant up front, but there were compelling subplots behind him, the most noteworthy between Ty Dillon and Alex Bowman . Bowman, who will sub for ailing Dale Earnhardt Jr. in Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, turned left into Dillon's No. 3 Chevrolet off Turn 2 on Lap 76, sending Dillon's car into the outside wall. Dillon was convinced Bowman wrecked him on purpose. Bowman asserted his car was forced wide, and the contact was unintentional. Dillon returned to action 55 laps down after repairs in the garage and twice tried to impede Bowman's progress on the track. "He tried to wreck me about four times after (the accident)," Bowman said after the race. "I don't blame him for being upset. He has every right to be upset… "He drove me way up the race track (right before the contact). He obviously got tight underneath me. I had a ton of wheel in it, and it finally caught. I barely came off the wall. You come off the wall six inches and you tag somebody in the right rear. I hate that for the 3 car, but I definitely didn't do it intentionally. He can think what he wants." Bowman was able to continue despite damage to the left front of his No. 88 JR Motorsports Chevrolet and posted an eighth-place finish. Dillon, on the other hand, was scored 33rd and held third place in the XFINITY standings but fell to 48 points behind Suarez, who also expanded his series lead to 15 points over second-place Elliott Sadler , who ran 10th on Saturday.

John Wes Townley sitting out Eldora race with possible concussion
Concord, N.C. (July 18, 2016) – John Wes Townley remains under treatment for a possible concussion and will not compete in Wednesday night's NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Eldora Speedway. ARCA competitor Brady Boswell will drive the No. 05 Zaxby's/Jive Communications Chevrolet at Eldora for Townley. The 19-year-old Boswell, like Townley, is a resident of Watkinsville, Georgia. Both drivers are graduates of North Oconee High School in Bogart, Georgia. Veteran driver and NASCAR on NBC analyst Parker Kligerman will substitute for Townley in Friday night's ARCA Sioux Chief PowerPEX 200 presented by Jive at Lucas Oil Raceway. Townley is scheduled to be re-evaluated by his physician July 25, when he anticipates gaining medical clearance to return to competition in ARCA and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series for events next week at Pocono Raceway.
Dale's call: Bowman misses FaceTime with boss
LOUDON, N.H. -- We found out earlier this weekend that Alex Bowman is prone to missing important phone calls, but you'd think when the boss man tries to FaceTime, he'd answer. Not quite. RELATED: Bowman gets call to jump in No. 88 -- sends it to voicemail After placing eighth in Saturday's AutoLotto 200 NASCAR XFINITY Series event at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Bowman -- tapped to replace Dale Earnhardt Jr. in Sunday's New Hampshire 301 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event -- mentioned in his post-race press conference that Junior "loves to FaceTime." But he's never answered the, for lack of a better term, Dale Call. "I don't think I've ever actually answered any type of video chat from him," Bowman said. "Definitely missed a few from him." Race weekends are busy, sure, but you'd think the 23-year-old would jump at the opportunity to take a video chat from the man for whom he's subbing, knowing Earnhardt is hanging around his house, bored and probably Netflixed-out as he recovers from concussion-like symptoms. "Dale's probably sitting at home, super bored, watching the TV," said Bowman, who will line up 20th in the No. 88 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet. "He's probably criticizing what I did today, saying 'Why didn't you do a better job?.' I don't know; he's probably just really bored at home trying to talk to everybody last night. "I just know that everybody's phone kept ringing (Friday) night. I was in the shower, (spotter) TJ Majors told me that he was in the shower and his phone rang three times. So, Dale was just wanting to talk." </p>
