Kyle Busch was eighth fastest overall in Saturday morning’s practice for the Advance Auto Parts Clash (The Clash) and was the highest finishing Toyota driver at Daytona International Speedway.

While Kyle Busch was eighth fastest in practice for The Clash it’s important to note the speed difference between him and the seven drivers ahead of him. Kurt Busch, last year’s Daytona 500 winner, finished one position ahead of Kyle in seventh but his best lap was .120 faster. Kyle Busch was the first driver who’s top speed fell below the 199 shelf. Kyle Busch has proven in the past that he can rebound at Daytona, last year he finished second in The Clash after starting in 13th position.

A decent finish is never good enough for 2015 NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series champion Kyle Busch. Following a top five result in 2017’s Winter Showdown at Kern County Raceway Park (CA), the Las Vegas driver knew that the Kyle Busch Motorsports team would have to do their homework to be in contention on the ½-mile upon their return.

Busch patiently worked his way to the lead on lap 63 and never looked back on his way to taking his signature bow in victory lane Saturday afternoon. Some of the Southwest and entire country’s best racers will now have to wait until next year to attempt at unseating Kyle Busch as winner of the Winter Showdown.

Once a teenage ingénue himself, Kyle Busch is not particularly thrilled with NASCAR’s marketing plan aimed at the Youth Movement in Cup according to ESPN.

Of course, Busch is now 32 and an established star. Lest one think that his opinions are invalid, however, it bears to note that he has given back to the Youth Movement with rides in his Camping World Truck Series and Super Late Model entries.

Kyle Busch found himself watching the championship from his front windshield, as Martin Truex Jr. beat him to the line in the Coke 400 at Homestead by four car lengths. Busch led 43 laps of the race and was made several runs on Truex in the late stages of the race before finishing second in the Ford 400.

While Busch had the fastest car of the playoff contenders for a large portion of the race, he found it hard stay out front for long. Look for Busch, along with the other three playoff drivers that did not walk away with the championship, to enter Daytona with a chip on their shoulders and a lot to prove in 2018.

Kyle Busch posted the quickest 10-lap average in final practice for the Ford 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway with a speed of 164.681 mph in his first circuits on the track.

Like Martin Truex Jr., he was equally fast in the morning session, so it appears he will be Truex’s main competitor for the championship. His worth to fantasy owners is minimized by the risks they will have to take among bargain drivers, however.

Kyle Busch posted the fastest single lap of practice for the Ford 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway with a speed of 172.695 mph.

Busch is one of the four Championship contenders and notably three of the four drivers vying for the Cup topped the charts. These drivers are the most expensive in fantasy games and should be the top challengers for the victory. Martin Truex Jr. and Kevin Harvick were second and third fstest.

Kyle Busch finished seventh in the Can Am 500 at Phoenix International Raceway and will head to Homestead-Miami Speedway with his fifth top-10 in five playoff races.

Three of those were wins and that is why he is part of the Championship Four. The top four drivers – Busch, Martin Truex Jr., Kevin Harvick, and Brad Keselowski are evenly matched on the coming track and that is going to put a lot of pressure on all of them.

Kyle Busch started fifth, but slipped to 19th at the end of the AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway.

Busch was involved in contact on the opening lap of the race and aerodynamic damage put him behind the eight ball all afternoon. For a time, it appeared strategy could play in his favor, but he ultimately finished one lap off the pace.

Kyle Busch led the final lap of a chaotic First Data 500 at Martinsville Speedway to punch his ticket to the championship finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Kyle Busch finished just well enough to advance to the next round of the playoffs after finishing 10th in the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway.

Busch’s advancement was helped by a blown engine for Kyle Larson early in the race. He crashed in back-to-back races and needed a little luck on his side. Now he has the full benefit of his 42 bonus points.

Kyle Busch was in one of a dozen or so cars that sustained heavy damage in a late-race crash at Talladega SuperSpeedway; he will finish outside the top 20 for the second consecutive race.

Busch could ill afford to get involved in a crash this week. His potential saving grace is that several other playoff contenders including Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Jamie McMurray, Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth, and Kurt Busch also sustained crash damage in this race. Busch will be highly motivated to win at Kansas Speedway next week.
