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.

Kyle Busch has alternated top-fives with accidents in his last five Sprint Unlimited attempts. He failed to finish the 2011 and 2013 editions of this race.

Fantasy owners may still want to take a gamble on the inconsistent driver because he won the 2012 race and finished third last year. If he makes it to the checkered flag, he will be in contention.

Kyle Busch managed to string five top-10s together at the beginning of the 2014 Chase, but that was only the third time all season he managed to score at least back-to-back strong runs.

Busch also had a three-race, top-10 streak going in the spring and back-to-back second-place finishes in the summer. In two of the three instances when he had a streak in place, however, it was stopped by a 40-something result. In order to become a consistent pick on fantasy rosters, he needs to develop more momentum.

Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) announces today crew chief assignments for each of its four 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

JGR's 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Crew Chief lineup: Jason Ratcliff, No 20 Toyota driven by Matt Kenseth; Dave Rogers, No. 11 Toyota driven by Denny Hamlin; Darian Grubb, No. 19 Toyota driven by Carl Edwards and Adam Stevens, No. 18 Toyota driven by Kyle Busch. Said J.D. Gibbs, president of Joe Gibbs Racing. "Like Jason and Dave previously, Adam (Stevens) has clearly proven that he is ready to move into the Cup Series and we feel that his familiarity with Kyle (Busch) provides the opportunity for us to make that move now. We think pairing Dave (Rogers) with Denny (Hamlin) and Darian (Grubb) with Carl (Edwards) will also make each team stronger heading into next season. Jason (Ratcliff) and Matt (Kenseth) came together quickly and we felt it was in the best interest of the 20 team to keep it as is.-Joe Gibbs Racing

Kyle Busch has been uneven at Homestead with only one top-15 in his first seven attempts. He found the groove in 2012 and finished fourth, however, and added another seventh to his coffer last year.

Busch represents risk on every track, but when he stays out of trouble he can earn major points. If a player needs a differentiator who is essentially a roll of the dice, Busch may offer the greatest payout.

Kyle Busch seems to be back on his top-10 track. After scoring five straight at the beginning of the Chase, he crashed at Talladega, finished 11th at Martinsville, and was fourth last week at Texas.

Four of Busch’s last five races at Phoenix ended in top-10s including a third in fall 2012. He can give fantasy owners gray hair, but is a great differentiator when he stays out of trouble.

Kyle Busch slapped the wall early and later cut a tire in a separate incident. He lost a lap and did not get NASCAR’s Free Pass until lap 286, but surged at the right time and finished fourth in the AAA Texas 500.

Busch showed the kind of perseverance that kept him in Chase contention until an accident at Talladega. That was his seventh result of 11th or better in the last eight races and he has become one of the best fantasy values during the playoffs.
