Kyle Busch was caught speeding on pit road on lap 172. That cost him a ton of track position, and he should have been fairly relieved the finish eighth in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 400 at Chicagoland Speedway.
Busch fell to third in the points and may yet be happy that he started the season with 12 bonus points. Busch now has back-to-back top-10s, but he has not scored a top-five since winning the Crown Royal Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at the Brickyard. To justify his salary cap, he needs to challenge for victories. Sep 18 - 8:15 PM

Sprint Cup regular Kyle Busch (No. 18 Toyota Camry) won the American Ethanol e15 225, his 46th victory in 133 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) races.

Driving the No. 18 SiriusXM Toyota Tundra, Busch scored his second victory and third top-10 NCWTS finish in 2016. It is his fifth victory and sixth top-10 finish in six NCWTS races at Chicagoland Speedway. Daniel Hemric (second) posted his first top-10 finish in two races at Chicagoland and his 13th top-10 finish in 2016. Cameron Hayley (third) posted his first top-10 finish in two races at Chicagoland. Christopher Bell (fourth) was the highest finishing rookie. William Byron is seeded first in the 2016 NCWTS Chase after this event.

Kyle Busch complained of a vibration late in the first practice session on Friday for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 400 at Chicagoland Speedway. He indicated that he believed the vibration was coming from the axle.

Look for the team to change axles before Saturday’s practice. This should not impact their starting position and Busch’s handicap should be based on how he runs in that session.

Weather canceled qualification for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 400 at Chicagoland Speedway, which means the Chase contenders will all line up on the first eight rows as the grid has been set by NASCAR points.

By benefit of having four wins apiece Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski will make up the front row. A 400-mile race provides enough time for comers and goers to develop, but it pays to get a good start to help avoid trouble.

Kyle Busch finished ninth after starting ninth in the Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond International Raceway. He failed to lead a single lap during the evening.

Kyle Busch was the highest running driver to pit on the final stop before the green-white-checkered attempt. He gave up a fifth-place spot on the track and his Hail Mary did not pay off in a top-five finish, but this was a team that was not going to challenge for the win without risk. Busch shares the point lead entering the Chase with Brad Keselowski because both racers have four wins during the regular season.

Sprint Cup regular Kyle Busch, driving the No. 18 NOS Toyota Camry, won the Virginia529 College Savings 250, his 84th victory in 325 NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) races.

This is his eighth victory and 12th top-10 NXS finish in 2016 and his sixth victory and 18th top-10 finish in 21 NXS races at Richmond International Raceway (RIR). Busch started seventh in the lineup and led 197 laps of the 250-lap event. Erik Jones (second) posted his third top-10 finish in four races at RIR and his 15th top-10 finish in 2016. Sprint Cup driver Brad Keselowski (third) posted his ninth top-10 finish in 16 NXS races at RIR. Elliott Sadler leads the point standings by 58 points over Daniel Suarez.

Joe Gibbs Racing swept the top-five spots in final practice for the Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond International Raceway with their four drivers leading the session and affiliate Martin Truex Jr. posting the fifth-best time. Carl Edwards had the best 10-lap average of 116.652 mph, Matt Kenseth was 116.607, Denny Hamlin 116.580, Kyle Busch 116.575, and Truex 116.514.

The lesson is pretty clear. The Gibb’s guys are going to dominate most of the Richmond race and are likely to fail to sweep the top 10 only if they sustain damage of make a mistake in the pits.

Kyle Busch posted the fastest single lap in the first practice session for the Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond. His top speed was 120.979 mph. He also had the quickest 10-lap average at 119.781 mph.

Busch finished second in the last two races on this track, but is coming off a three-race streak of results outside the top 10 this season. Watch him in final practice before committing resources.

Kyle Busch striped his car two-thirds of the way through the first practice session at Darlington Raceway. His damage was fairly significant, but will probably not be cause for a backup.

Busch was not overly fast to this point in time. He had only the 16th-fastest lap of 176.626 mph.
Sep 3 - 12:07 PM

Kyle Busch posted a speed of 200.245 mph and will roll off the grid 16th for the Pure Michigan 400.

Busch has struggled at Michigan in race trim on occasion. He is not a lock for Sunday’s race and should be evaluated on Saturday before committing to an extremely high salary cap.

Kyle Busch was one of five drivers who’s team was issued a warning at Bristol. The No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing team received its fourth warning at Bristol and as a result will lose its pit stall selection.

Busch was cited for failing the Laser Inspection Station twice at Bristol, according to NBC Sports. Selection is less important on a wide, long pit like Michigan International Speedway has, but this hurts their handicap slightly.

Several laps before his accident, Kyle Busch felt something breaking on his Toyota. He tried to ride it out, but crashed on lap 357 and was collected by Justin Allgaier to end his day. Busch finished the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway 39th.

Busch called out Allgaier and the spotter of the No. 46 HScott Motorsports team, but probably should have pitted before he knew he would crash. Starting third, he cost fantasy owners 36 place-differential points and while that hurt, his 256 laps led offset much of the difference.

Persistent rain has postponed the Bass Pro Shops Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway to Sunday at 1 pm ET. The race will be televised on CNBC.

Kyle Busch was leading when the rain fell. He paced the field for 26 laps. Lineups will remain locked in most fantasy games, but the different conditions are going to through the competitors a curveball.

Denny Hamlin qualified on the outside pole for the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway with a lap of 131.200 mph, which was 0.023 seconds slower than his teammate Carl Edwards. Fellow Joe Gibbs Racer Kyle Busch qualified third.

This organization has been almost unstoppable this season. Any roster that does not have at least one of Gibbs’ guys on it is unlikely to win.
