Kyle Busch overcame damage in a late-race incident to win Saturday’s Xfinity Series race at Road America.

Busch has won all four Xfinity starts he’s made this season. The win is the 101st of his Xfinity Series career.

The cars of Austin Cindric, Kyle Busch and Justin Allgaier were among those damaged in a crash in the middle of the pack on Lap 38 of the 45-lap race. The incident started when Myatt Snider had contact with another car, triggering the multi-car crash. Cindric and Allgaier had to pit for repairs. Busch did not.

Daniel Hemric finished second. It’s his ninth career runner-up finish in the Xfinity Series. He has yet to win in the series. Michael Annett was third. AJ Allmendinger placed fourth. Harrison Burton was fifth. Kevin Harvick was sixth.

Sam Mayer was eliminated in a crash approaching Turn 12, Canada Corner. In traffic, Mayer and another car made contact and sent Mayer’s car into the wall. The 18-year-old, making his second series start, walked away.

Spencer Pumpelly crashed on to the tire barrier in Turn 1 after he said on his radio that he lost his brakes.

Ty Gibbs started on the pole, was penalized for a restart violation and was running second when he had transmission issues and stopped on track on Lap 35.
