PHOENIX, Ariz. — Kyle Busch led 169 of the 200-lap Servicemaster 200 in the Valley of the Sun on Saturday, making it his sixth win at the one-mile oval in the desert.


The #54 Monster Energy Toyota finished more than four seconds ahead of second place finisher Justin Allgaier. Series points leader Austin Dillon was third, followed by Regan Smith and Sam Hornish Jr.


Hornish dropped to eight points behind Dillon with one last shot to win the 2013Championship next week at Miami-Homestead.


The win by Busch was his 12th Nationwide Series victory in 25 starts this season.


“It was a great day for us,” Busch said from Victory Lane. “It’s a testament to (crew chief) Adam Stevens and the group of guys that he’s got around us that do such a great job and give us some great equipment.”
