Kyle Busch earned his third consecutive top-10 at Dover with a 10th-place finish in the AAA 400.
This makes him one of only four drivers to sweep the top 10 in the three Chase races to date, but it comes on the heels of six consecutive races outside that mark. Busch is a good, but not yet great value for fantasy owners. The other three drivers to sweep the top 10 so far in the 2014 Chase are Joey Logano, Brad Keselowski, and Kyle Larson. Sep 29 - 12:48 PM

Sprint Cup regular (No. 18 Toyota) Kyle Busch wins the Dover 200, his 68th victory in 291 NASCAR Nationwide Series races.

This is the No. 54 Monster Energy Toyota driver's fifth NNS victory and 20th top-10 finish in 2014. He is now the all-time Dover wins leader, breaking a tie with Joey Logano. This is his fifth victory and 14th top-10 finish in 19 NNS races at Dover International Speedway. Busch also won this year's spring race at Dover. It is his second Dover sweep (first came in 2010).

Kyle Busch started on the outside pole at Dover this spring, but crashed while battling for a top-five position on the track. He qualified second again this week and hopes that he fares better in the AAA 400.

If Busch stays out of trouble, he should be a good gamble to finish in the top 10. Even knowing he simply needs a solid finish to advance to the next round of the playoffs, he often cannot help pushing the envelope, however.

Kyle Busch sustained significant damage in an accordion-style accident during a restart on lap 189. He dropped to 23rd while make repairs, but stayed on the lead lap and ultimately finished eighth.

Busch currently sits fifth in the standings and if he advances to the Contender round, it will probably be this effort that earned enough points to make the difference. The No. 18 team is prone to accidents and mistakes, but if they are priced right in some games Busch could be a good value because of their perseverance.

Kyle Busch has earned three consecutive runner-up finishes at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and would love to improve his effort by one spot in the Sylvania 300.

The bad news is that Busch failed to score a single top-10 in the four races leading up to that streak and his NHMS average in 2011/2012 was a modest 22.8. He does not have very much current momentum from the 2014 season and should be happy to score a top-10.

Chase contenders Kyle Busch finished seventh and Kurt Busch finished eighth in the MyAFibStory.com 400 at Chicagoland. Even more remarkable, the brothers survived contact with one another late in the race before earning their top-10s.

They took different paths in the past several races to get into the Chase, but both have stepped up their effort to begin the playoffs. This was Kyle’s first top-10 since Indianapolis, but it was the fourth such finish in that same span of races for Kurt. Neither driver has shown noteworthy consistency, however, and they need to string more than two top-10s together before fantasy owners view them as favorites.

Sprint Cup regular (No. 18 Toyota Camry) Kyle Busch wins the Lucas Oil 225, his 41st victory in 123 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) races.

This is the No. 51 Toyota Tundra driver's sixth victory and seventh top-10 NCWTS finish in 2014. This is his fourth victory and fifth top-10 finish in five NCWTS races at Chicagoland Speedway.

Rain has washed out qualification for the MyAFibStory.com 400 at Chicagoland, which will place Kyle Busch on the pole. Busch posted the fastest speed in the first practice session, which will also set the remainder of the grid.

This could be the good fortune that Busch needs to get his Chase off to a strong start. Last year he started 12th in the Geico 400 and finished second. Fantasy owners should watch him closely during Saturday’s practices and consider him a strong dark horse.

Kyle Busch posted the fastest single lap in Friday’s first practice session for the MyAFibStory.com 400 at Chicagoland. His top speed was 191.442 mph.

That makes Busch one of the favorites to win the pole later on Friday and this team desperately needs something good to happen. They have not scored a single top-10 and have only one top-15 in the last six races of the this season despite starting eighth or better three times.
Sep 12 - 2:40 PM

Kyle Busch enters the weekend with back-to-back top-fives in his last two Chicagoland races. He finished fourth in 2012 and was the runner-up to teammate Matt Kenseth last year.

Busch has not scored a top-10 since Indianapolis this July and last week’s 14th-place finish in the Federated Auto Parts 400 was his first top-15 in six races. He needs to turn his fortune around dramatically and will concentrate on his past success at Chicagoland. That should be sufficient to get him back inside the top 10.

Kyle Busch's seemingly flawless race Friday night at Richmond International Raceway didn't go completely without a hitch.

NASCAR officials announced that the rear gear of Busch's winning Joe Gibbs Racing No. 54 Toyota would be taken to the NASCAR Research & Development Center in Concord, North Carolina., for further evaluation. It was the only issue reported from post-race technical inspection after Friday night's Virginia529 College Savings 250. Busch was the Coors Light Pole Award winner and led all 250 laps of his fourth Nationwide Series victory of the year and his 67th win of his career on the tour.

Sprint Cup driver Kyle Busch wins the Virginia529 College Savings 250 from the pole, his 67th victory in 289 NASCAR Nationwide Series races.

Busch led all 250 laps, the second time in his career that he has led every lap in an NNS race. He was the last driver to accomplish the feat, on Feb. 26, 2011 at Phoenix International Raceway. This is Busch's fourth victory and 18th top-10 NNS finish in 2014. This is his fifth victory and 16th top-10 finish in 19 NNS races at Richmond International Raceway.

Sprint Cup driver Kyle Busch wins the Coors Light Pole Award for the Nationwide Series (NNS) Virginia529 College Savings 250 with a lap of 22.332 seconds, 120.903 mph.

This is the No. 54 Toyota Camry driver's 42nd pole in 289 NNS races. It is his sixth pole and 17th top-10 NNS start in 2014. This is Busch's fourth pole in 19 NNS races at Richmond International Raceway.

Kyle Busch’s third-place finish at Richmond this spring in the Toyota Owners 400 stands alone among his recent short track attempts. That is his only top-10 and one of only four top-15s in his past eight races.

Busch has been on a downward spiral in recent weeks, but his 16th-place finish in the Oral-B USA 500 actually showed some progress. He suffered crash damage early in that race and was forced to rally from what could have been a sub-25th-place finish.

Kyle Busch drew a pit road speeding penalty on lap 63, which put him in heavy traffic. He was unable to move forward, and was in the eye of the storm on lap 126 when he was swept into a Brian Vickers vs. Kyle Larson accident. His day never improved and he finished 36th.

The biggest drama of the race was when he pulled into his pits on lap 442 and abandoned his car for the crew to push to the hauler. This initiated an emotional verbal response from crew chief Dave Rogers and suggests there could be trouble in the team.
