Kyle Busch made history at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the Crown Royal Combat Wounded Coalition 400. He led the most laps by a winner at 149 and also set a record by winning both the Cup and XFINITY races from the pole.
Equally notable, both of Busch’s wins came on old tires. Busch was simply dominant in the Brickyard 400—reminiscent of Martin Truex Jr.’s victory at Charlotte Motor Speedway this summer in the Coke 600. This was Busch’s second straight win at the track and his fourth top-two finish in the last five races. Jul 24 - 6:56 PM

Kyle Busch won both poles on Saturday. Shortly after winning the pole for the XFINITY race, he posted a lap of 184.634 mph in the third and final round of qualification to score the first pole of his career at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the Brickyard 400.

Busch’s previous best start was seventh in 2012 en route to a second-place finish. Last year he recorded his second career top-10 start with the ninth-best time before scoring his first win on this track. Busch would seem to be a driver to tips his hand on this track in qualification and should be a great value.

Kyle Busch took a wild looking spin after catching and rubbing against the No. 32 of Patrick Carpentier with 22 minutes remaining in practice one for the Crown Royal Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at the Brickyard. He spun onto a flat, asphalt runoff and did minimal damage to the right side of his car, but will lose valueable track time as the team checks out his Toyota.

Carpentier seemed to give room to the No. 18 and then pinched the car back down. No one could have been more surprised by the contact than Busch and it is strictly because of superior car control that he did not crash hard into one of the retaining barriers.

Kyle Busch led the most laps of the New Hampshire 301, but faded at the end of the race. He led 133 laps and scored well for fantasy owners, but ultimately finished eighth after starting on the outside pole.

It was expected that this would be a solid showing for Joe Gibbs Racing and three of their drivers finished inside the top 10. Ultimately that was not much consolation to Busch and his fans, however.

Kyle Busch took a slide for life in Friday afternoon’s practice. With 30 minutes remaining, he managed to keep from hitting the wall, aborted his practice, and headed to the garage for an adjustment.

Busch may well have the greatest car control of anyone in the field and saves like this make him a great value on race day.
