Kyle Busch takes another Xfinity race at Texas

FORT WORTH, Texas — Kyle Busch led 150 of 200 laps at Texas Motor Speedway on Friday night to win for the fourth time in five NASCAR Xfinity series starts this season.

Busch was the pole-sitter in the O'Reilly Auto Parts 300 and led four times, including the last 81 laps, to extend his record with his 80th victory in NASCAR's second-tier series. It was his eighth win at the high-banked, 11/2-mile track in the Lone Star State.

Just like the Joe Gibbs Racing teammates started the race, Busch and Erik Jones finished 1-2. Jones finished 3.055 seconds back.

F1: Faced with a wall of resistance, motor sport's governing body agreed for Formula One to revert to last year's qualifying format after the new system proved widely unpopular. The decision still needs to officially approval by the F1 Commission and World Motor Sport Council before next week's Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai. The new rolling-elimination format for the first two races was heavily criticized.
