Kyle Larson raced to his second Nationwide Series victory of the season Saturday, holding off Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The 21-year-old Larson passed Keselowski on the 118th lap in the 200-lap race and led the rest of the way. Larson also won at Fontana.

Keselowski was second, followed by Busch, Kevin Harvick and Brian Scott.

Busch won the previous three Nationwide Series races at Charlotte and has eight victories at the track, but wasn't much of a factor after leading the first 23 laps.

Larson won on car owner Chip Ganassi's 56th birthday, and one week after Jamie McMurray won the Sprint Cup All-Star race.
