Just past the halfway point of final practice, Kyle Busch became the latest driver to get a Darlington Stripe. His damage was significant enough that he will roll out a backup.
Busch cannot afford a bad run because he can still fall out of the top 30 in the points. He will have to come from the back of the pack and needs to race conservatively. Conventionality is not really in Busch’s wheel house, however, and fantasy owners should be a little nervous about starting him. Sep 4 - 5:39 PM

Sprint Cup driver Kyle Busch led the first practice session for the XFINITY Series VFW Sport Clips Help a Hero 200 at Darlington Raceway.

The lap of 167.379 mph in the No. 54 Monster Energy Toyota was best of the 35 cars out on the track for this session. No. 20 Denny Hamlin, No. 33 Paul Menard, No. 22 Joey Logano and No. 3 Ty Dillon are the rest of the top five on the speed chart. Harrison Rhodes in the No. 0 Chevrolet Camaro was the slowest.

Kyle Busch finished eighth in the Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway and extended his lead in the points’ standings over 31st-place Cole Whitt to 44 markers. With two races remaining, that means he is almost one full event to the good and should not have to worry overly about bad finishes at Darlington Raceway or Richmond International Raceway.

In the past two weeks, Busch has been good about taking what the race would give him. He overcame a penalty in the pits and a flat tire at Bristol before charging back into the top 10 late in the race. Busch will most likely begin swinging for the fences once more in the coming races, which will make him a volatile pick in fantasy NASCAR.

Sprint Cup driver Kyle Busch won the Food City 300, his 73rd victory in 302 NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) races.

This is the No. 54 Monster Energy Toyota driver's third victory and fifth top-10 NXS finish in 2015. It is his eighth victory and 18th top-10 finish in 22 races at Bristol Motor Speedway. Busch started second in the lineup and led 89 laps of the 302-lap race.

Like Kyle Larson, Busch was also quick in the other practice session and he posted a speed of 125.443 mph from laps 47 through 56 in the morning. Busch qualified on the outside of the front row for the Cup event, won the XFINITY race, and has a ton of momentum on his side.

Kyle Busch posted the fastest single lap in the final practice session for the Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway. His top speed was 131.149 mph.

That is only two-tenths of a second slower than the track record of 131.362 mph set by Kevin Harvick before this race last year. As speeds continue to increase, the competition intensifies and traffic is going to be a problem Saturday night.

Sprint Cup driver Kyle Busch (No. 51 Dollar General Toyota Tundra) won the Careers for Veterans 200 Presented by The Cooper Standard Foundation & Brad Keselowski's Checkered Flag Foundation, his 44th victory in 127 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races.

Kyle Busch got loose off turn four in the first minutes of final practice for the Pure Michigan 400. He spun into the infield grass and did major damage to his car that will require a backup.

Busch has been a proponent for getting rid of grass all around the race tracks and might not have torn up his car as badly if the area into which he spun had been paved.

Last week Kyle Busch was in and out of the Chase at Pocono Raceway; he gambled on fuel and ran out while leading, which dropped him to 32nd in the standings. This week, he played just a little conservatively and did not challenge Joey Logano for the win, but he was strong enough to finish second.

Busch weighed the risk versus reward and earned major points for both his race team and fantasy players. Now that he is among the top 30, expect him to go back to gambling so he can add bonus points to his Chase total.
Aug 9 - 5:13 PM

Kyle Busch spun off the final turn of Watkins Glen International early in the morning practice session for the Cheez-it 355k at the Glen. He did not do any damage, changed tires, and got back on track.

So long as Busch pushes the limit in practice and not during the race, he will continue to be a great value on race day.
Aug 7 - 11:56 AM

Sprint Cup driver Kyle Busch (No. 51 Dollar General Toyota Tundra) won the Pocono Mountains 150, his 43rd victory in 126 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) races.

This is his first NCWTS victory of 2015. Busch has now won at least one race in all three of NASCAR's national series for the 10th time in his career. This is his first NCWTS victory and second top-10 finish in two races at Pocono Raceway. Busch started second in the lineup and led the most laps (53) in the 69-lap event.

Kyle Busch got back on track with a few minutes remaining in final practice for the Windows 10 400 at Pocono Raceway and jumped to the top of the leaderboard. His top speed was 175.240 mph.

Busch was only able to record eight laps after hitting the wall earlier in the session. His tendency to overdrive makes him a risky proposition, but four wins in the last five races proves his can be successful when he stays out of trouble.
Aug 1 - 12:29 PM

Kyle Busch pushed into the wall halfway through the final practice session for the Windows 10 400 and flattened the right side of his car. He sustained significant damage and missed much of the hour.

Busch has a tendency to overdrive his car at times and despite his four wins during the past five races, he readily makes mistakes. If this had happened during the race, his odds of scoring a top-10 would be seriously impaired.
