Kyle Busch took tires with eight laps remaining and lined up seventh on the grid. He showed a perfect balance of aggression and patience to win the Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway. If he can climb into the top-30 in points, he will qualify for the 2015 Chase for the Championship.

Busch started the afternoon more than 170 points out of 30th and has a steep hill to climb, but he has knocked off the biggest challenge with this win. This is Busch’s fourth road course win—two of which have come at Sonoma.

Kyle Busch posted the fastest single lap in final practice for the Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma with a speed of 96.175 mph.

Busch is not the first driver who comes to mind on road courses, but he swept Victory Lane in 2008 and had another win at the Glen in 2013. Unfortunately, his other three starts on the twisty tracks in the past two years ended 25th or worse.

Sprint Cup regular Kyle Busch won the Great Clips 250 Benefiting Paralyzed Veterans of America, his series record 71st victory in 298 NASCAR XFINITY Series races.

Busch won in his first start of 2015 in the NASCAR XFINITY Series. This is the No. 54 Monster Energy Toyota driver's second victory and seventh top-10 finish in eight NXS races at Michigan International Speedway.

After crashing in the FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks at Dover International Speedway, Kyle Busch has used up his mulligan for the season and that could be a concern this week. He has experienced trouble in each of his last three attempts at Michigan International Speedway.

He suffered crash damage in the August 2013 and 2014 races. He broke a hub in this race last year. The team needs to push the envelope, but they have to find the edge before going over it.

Kyle Busch will return to the XFINITY Series on Saturday at Michigan International Speedway, marking his first race in that series since he was injured in the Feb. 21 season opener at Daytona.

Joe Gibbs Racing made the announcement Monday on Twitter. Busch will drive the No. 54 car at Michigan. This will be only Busch’s fifth weekend back since he suffered a compound fracture of his right lower leg and a mid-foot fracture of his left foot when his XFINITY car struck an inside wall at Daytona International Speedway that was not protected by any type of energy-absorbing barrier. Busch returned for the Sprint All-Star race last month and has competed in Sprint Cup races at Charlotte, Dover and Pocono since.-NBC Sports

It took only three weeks for Kyle Busch to earn his first top-10 since returning from an injury sustained in the season-opening XFINITY race at Daytona International Speedway. He crossed under the checkers ninth in the Axalta We Paint Winners 400 at Pocono Raceway.

Busch ran well and spent about 70 percent of the race among the top 10, but he never really challenged for the victory. In order to qualify for the Chase he must earn enough points to climb into the top 30 and win a race. There is still plenty of time for him to accomplish both feats.

Kyle Busch will roll off the grid 10th for the Axalta We Paint Winners 400 at Pocono Raceway. This is the fifth straight race on this track for which he has qualified in the top 10.

Unfortunately, Busch has fallen back in race trim in all but one of those races and has only two top-10s to show for his effort. Last August he blew an engine and fell well off the pace to finish 42nd.
Jun 6 - 12:32 PM

Kyle Busch posted the third-quickest average time in Saturday morning’s practice with a speed of 154.123 mph. His top speed was set late in the session from his laps 28 through 37.

Busch had a strong return at Charlotte Motor Speedway last week, but he barely missed the top 10. This week he qualified 10th and should be able to stay in that range most of the day. It is still too soon to determine his odds for finishing there, however.

In his return to the cockpit of the No. 18 Toyota after 11 weeks of injury, Kyle Busch posted the fastest single lap in practice for the all-star race. His top speed was 188.884 mph.

Busch has a lot of pent-up need for speed. He has been an all or nothing driver in terms of all-star results and has an equal opportunity to win or finish worse than 15th.

Kyle Busch will return to the seat of the No. 18 M&Ms Toyota in time for the all-star race, according to NBC’s Dustin Long. This will end an 11-race hiatus from the cockpit.

Fantasy players have been waiting for Busch to return in order to have another marquee selection at the top of the salary cap range. Since the all-star race is not included in most games, this is an opportunity to evaluate him before committing resources.
May 12 - 2:52 PM

Daytona International Speedway announced Saturday night that they will install tire packs along the wall where Kyle Busch crashed hard in the XFINITY race and will install SAFER barriers around both the inside as well as the outside of the track going forward. The announcement was made jointly by track President Joie Chitwood and NASCAR VP Steve O’Donnell.

It is unfortunate that a driver was injured in the accident on Saturday afternoon, but the track is committed to creating the safest possible environment for both this week’s race and future events.
Feb 21 - 8:26 PM

After a hard crash in the Alert Today Florida 300 XFINITY race, Kyle Busch will not compete in the Daytona 500 on Sunday. He sustained an injury to his right leg.

With brother Kurt being suspended indefinitely, this will mark the first time since 2001 that a Cup race has not had one of the Busch brothers in the event. Make certain that neither of them is on any of your rosters. Kyle was scheduled to start fourth on Sunday. No driver has been named as a replacement yet.

Sprint Cup Series regular Kyle Busch leads the first practice session for the XFINITY Series Alert Today Florida 300 at Daytona International Speedway.

The lap of 191.681 mph in the No. 54 Monster Energy Toyota Camry was best of the 44 cars out on the track for this session. No. 29 Justin Marks, No. 26 Mike Wallace, No. 6 Darrell Wallace Jr. and No. 3 Ty Dillon are the rest of the top five on the speed chart. Jeff Green in the No. 10 Toyota Camry was the slowest.

Kyle Busch posted the fastest speed in the first practice for the Daytona Duels, which was also the third practice for the Daytona 500. His top speed was 200.776 mph.

Busch logged this speed by racing through the middle of the pack in a three-wide scenario. His car looked steady and should continue to be strong in multi-car packs.
