Kyle Busch came from 32nd on the grid to win his third consecutive race in the Monster Energy Cup Series by grabbing the checkered flag in the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond Raceway.
Busch replicates a feat performed by Kevin Harvick earlier this year. This is now his seventh consecutive top-three finish and if there was ever a place-and-hold driver, he is the won. Busch has never won from this far back and he added a ton of place-differential points in the process. Apr 21 - 10:00 PM

As predicted, Kyle Busch was the biggest mover in the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond Raceway, gaining 24 positions from 32nd to eighth by lap 67.

This hasn’t caught anyone by surprise, but now that he is in the top 10, he is probably clear of danger. Activate him in the NASCAR Fantasy Live game if you have not already.

Kyle Busch failed to advance to the second round of qualification for the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond Raceway – and with a lap of 122.344 m.p.h., he will start 32nd.

Busch did not make a mock qualification run in practice and seemed to just get caught off guard. He should be able to get to the front before the race is over and will earn a lot of place-differential points.

Kyle Busch won his second consecutive race by passing Kyle Larson in the closing laps of the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Busch caught Larson with about 10 laps remaining. He managed to get to the back bumper and perform a slight bump and run to take the lead. We predicted that he would be capable of stringing wins together once he broke his second- and third-place streak.

Kyle Busch posted a lap of 128.822 m.p.h. in the final round of qualification and will lead the Food City 500 field to green.

Kyle was only .002 seconds faster than his brother Kurt Busch. This is Kyle’s second Bristol pole. He led the field to green in spring 2013 before finishing second, but all of his six wins came from the sixth row or further back.

Kurt Busch posted a lap of 129.657 m.p.h. with Kyle recording a 129.456 m.p.h. lap to land third and fourth on the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway speed chart in the first practice session.

That is notable because both of the drivers were listed as one’s to watch in this week’s NASCAR America Fantasy Live preview. Ryan Blaney and Erik Jones went faster, but the Busch brothers have 11 poles between them and still have to be considered favorites.

Kyle Busch is second no more. After finishing in the runner-up position in three of the last four races, he beat Kevin Harvick to the checkers to win the O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 at Texas Motor Speedway.

Busch has come so close on several occasions – including a third in the past four races to go along with his three seconds – but he kept getting nicked at the end. Busch now heads to a track on which he has been incredibly strong, so hang onto him at Bristol Motor Speedway.
Apr 8 - 6:02 PM

Kyle Busch posted a lap of 195.009 m.p.h. in the first practice session for the O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, which made him the fastest Toyota driver so far.

Busch may have been able to lay down an even faster lap if not for slow traffic in his final run. If anyone can give the Stewart-Haas Racing Fords a challenge for the pole, it may well be Busch or his Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Denny Hamlin (who landed sixth on the chart with a 194.868).
Apr 6 - 2:39 PM

Kyle Busch finished second in the STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway to earn his fourth consecutive top-three in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.

Busch continues to be disappointed by his near misses, but he is earning a ton of points for fantasy players. A win is around the corner for the Toyota terror and he should be a place-and-hold driver for now.

NASCAR released the Post-Event Penalty Report for Auto Club Speedway and Kyle Busch's team was listed.

During the 3/18 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series post-race inspection, Busch's No. 18 Toyota was penalized under Sections Tire and Wheels. Note: Lug nut(s) not properly installed. The Penalty: Crew chief (Adam Stevens) has been fined $10,000.

Kyle Busch finished third in the Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway after starting the afternoon second.

Busch might have been able to finish one position better if the crew had not gone the wrong way with an adjustment during the last stop. He was forced to make all the future changes with the in-car track bar and that was not enough to keep up with Kyle Larson. Likely, no one was going to catch Martin Truex Jr., however. In this week’s Cheat Sheets, we had Busch ranked third.
Mar 18 - 6:52 PM

Kyle Busch posted the fastest single lap in Happy Hour for the Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway with a speed of 185.668 mph.

This is the first time all weekend that anyone challenged Kevin Harvick for supremacy. Busch was also great on long runs and is one of five drivers who swept the top 10 on two-mile tracks last year. The ultimate decision on who will win is going to come down to track position after the final pit stop, but Busch deserves to anchor many rosters.
Mar 17 - 4:33 PM

Kyle Busch is one of five drivers who swept the top 10 on two-mile tracks in 2018 with an eighth at Auto Club Speedway followed by a seventh and 10th at Michigan International Speedway.

That might still make him a bit of a disappointment, however, because he is expected to contend for top-fives. If he is rightly priced in salary cap games, go ahead and take the risk, but if he does not fit a comfortable slot on the roster, look for a driver with at least two top-fives on this track type last year.

For the second straight week, Kyle Busch finished second to Kevin Harvick; this time in the TicketGuardian 500 at ISM Raceway.

Busch led the most laps during the race and added 124 points in games that award a bonus for this. That made him one of the better fantasy values overall. In this week’s Cheat Sheets, he was handicapped second, so the finishing result was not unanticipated.
Mar 11 - 6:56 PM

Kyle Busch the lead from Kyle Larson with 18 laps remaining and led till the end of stage one of the TicketGuardian 500 at ISM Raceway.

This was his first stage win of the year, but with Kevin Harvick dominating last week and Daytona International Speedway’s erratic nature, that makes him a driver to watch for those bonus points.
