Carl Edwards and Kurt Busch will need to acquire charters from Michael Waltrip Racing to have one of NASCAR’s guaranteed 36 positions, according to NBC’s Dustin Long.
In 42 starts. Kyle Busch has amassed the 15th-best average finish among active, fulltime drivers with a 20.38. He has not finished in the top 10 since October 2013, however, and that makes him a poor value at his salary cap.
From the time he finished third in the May 2013 Talladega SuperSpeedway race until last year’s fifth on that same track in the fall, Carl Edwards failed to crack the top 15 a single time in nine starts. That has contributed to an average finish of only 20.53 on the combined plate tracks.
