A Weekend Nationwide Needed

Saturday night in the Irish Hills ended with a fantastic finish and an old-fashioned feud. And that's just what the Nationwide Series needed.

With a last turn pass, Brad Keselowski snagged his first NASCAR victory at his home track...leaving Brian Vickers and Kyle Busch trading below-the-belt verbal jabs and nearly throwing punches in frustration.

Sure Vickers and Busch had the fastest cars of the night, but Keselowski hanging quietly in third, took advantage of their on-track battle to snag a worthy win.

And that piqued Busch, which led to his marching over to Vickers' race car, to give him a piece of his rather perturbed mind. And though Busch gets mad at everything from the size of Dale Jr's fan base to the color of his pit board, his ire Saturday night may have been justified.

At the very least, it was well-timed.

The Nationwide Series has some good racin'. But the post-race drama made for some darned good television and that's what every fan wants to see. Hard racin', a little drama and an old-school feud. I just hope that Brian and Busch settle it on the track Saturday night at Bristol.
