INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Kyle Busch dominated to win the Nationwide Series race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Busch had the fastest car Saturday to win for the eighth time in 15 races. Busch led 92 of 100 laps but had a late scare after he fell back to third on the final restart.

Brian Scott, who has never won a Nationwide race in four seasons, briefly took the lead and hoped to be the upset winner. But Busch roared back to win for the first time at Indianapolis. He has a record 59 Nationwide wins in 259 starts.

He took his usual bow before the grabbed the checkered flag, then got ready to kiss the bricks.

Scott had a career-best second-place finish. Joey Logano was third.

Busch won from the pole and gave Toyota its first NASCAR win at Indianapolis and second ever at the track.
