The NASCAR Grand National Division, Busch East Series is a regional stock car racing division sanctioned by NASCAR.

Formed in 1987, the series races primarily in the Northeastern United States, including Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, Ohio, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. The series was formerly known as the Busch North Series, but was changed to Busch East for the 2006 season after a race was added in Greenville-Pickens Speedway in South Carolina. Races will be added in South Boston, Virginia, and Nashville, Tennessee for 2007 to continue the push south, as well as East-West combination races at the Iowa Speedway in Newton, IA and Elko Speedway in Elko, MN..

Kelly Moore has been the most successful driver on the circuit.

It is the only NASCAR series to have a driver win a series championship without winning a race. In 1994, Dale Shaw won the then-Busch Grand National North Series championship without a single win.
