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.

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.

Joe Gibbs Racing swept the top four spots in Saturday morning’s practice session for the Windows 10 400 at Pocono Raceway. Carl Edwards led the contingent with a speed of 175.812, followed by Matt Kenseth (175.418), Kyle Busch (175.408), and Denny Hamlin (175.298).

JGR has been consistently fast in every practice session and all of their drivers start near the front with Busch on the pole, Kenseth and Edwards lined up side-by-side on row four and Hamlin 11th. Fantasy owners should take whichever of these racers best fit their roster.

Kyle Busch posted a speed of 178.416 mph to win the pole for the Windows 10 400 at Pocono Raceway. That is his first pole since last fall’s Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He finished fifth in that race.

Busch is seeking an incredible fifth win in the past five races. His last three victories all came after he started among the top 10 and no one wants to bet against him this week.

Kyle Busch will make his return to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series on Aug. 1 for the Pocono Mountains 150.

Busch missed the first three months of NASCAR racing due to severe leg and foot injuries he suffered in the NASCAR XFINITY Series opener. In his comeback, the Joe Gibbs Racing driver has had an impressive few months of racing on both the Sprint Cup and XFINITY sides and is looking to, once again, top the Camping World Truck Series leaderboard. With a total of 42 wins, 79 top fives, 99 top-10 results and 16 poles, Busch is hoping to add to his impressive Camping World Truck Series statistics this August. Busch's last Camping World Truck Series win was in October during the 2014 WinStar World Casino & Resort 350 at Texas, where he led for 80 laps.

In the Crown Royal Jeff Kyle 400 at the Brickyard at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Kyle Busch recorded a remarkable fourth win in the last five races of the season. Incredibly, his wins have come with three distinct rules’ packages.

Busch is more focused than any other driver on the track at the moment and it will be impossible not to have him on the roster next week on another flat track of Pocono Raceway. Busch also won the XFINITY race on Saturday, which underscores the momentum on his side.

Sprint Cup regular Kyle Busch won the Lilly Diabetes 250, his 72nd victory in 301 NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) races.

This is the No. 54 Monster Energy Toyota Camry driver's second victory and fourth top-10 NXS finish in 2015. It is his second victory and third top-10 finish in four NXS races at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Busch, who started the race on pole, led a race-high 53 laps in the 100-lap event.
Jul 25 - 9:01 PM

Sprint Cup regular Kyle Busch won the Coors Light Pole Award for the Lilly Diabetes 250 with a lap of 49.854 seconds, 180.527 mph.

This is the No. 54 Monster Energy Toyota Camry driver's 44th pole in 301 NASCAR XFINITY Series races. It is his first pole and third top-10 NXS start in 2015. This is his third pole in four NXS races at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Jul 25 - 2:09 PM

Sprint Cup regular Kyle Busch led the first practice session for the XFINITY Series Lilly Diabetes 250 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The lap of 178.359 mph in the No. 54 Monster Energy Toyota Camry was best of the 37 cars out on the track for this session. No. 33 Paul Menard, No. 20 Erik Jones, No. 42 Kyle Larson and No. 22 Ryan Blaney are the rest of the top five on the speed chart. Derrike Cope in the No. 70 Chevrolet Camaro was the slowest.

Kyle Busch scored his third victory in the past four 2015 races in the 5-Hour Energy 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway by an impressive margin over Brad Keselowski. The race officially ended under caution as Alex Bowman hit the wall on the white flag lap, but Busch had an unassailable lead before then.

Winning races earns the most points and Busch continues to edge up on the top 30 in points. He finished 27 positions ahead of Cole Whitt—who entered the week as the 30th-place driver. At this pace, it will not take long for Busch to earn his Chase berth. Busch had to overcome a lost lap when he thought he had a tire deflating late in the race. The real culprit was oil, and when Busch raced back onto the lead lap seconds before a caution waved, that pass ended being what elevated him to first with less than 50 remaining.
Jul 19 - 4:40 PM

Kyle Busch posted the third-quickest speed in the morning session of practice for the 5-Hour Energy 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway with a speed of 131.006 mph.

Busch has a great opportunity to make significant inroads into his points’ deficit to the 30th-place position in the standings. Anything less than a 20-position improvement on Cole Whitt this week would be considered a surprise as Busch is favored to score at least a top-10.

Kyle Busch dominated and won the Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway and that apparently gave him confidence this week. He posted a speed of 134.725 mph in Friday’s qualification and lines up fourth on the grid for Sunday’s 5-Hour Energy 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

By leading the most laps and winning last week, Busch banked maximum points and edged closer to the top 30 in points despite missing 11 races at the start of the season. New Hampshire and Pocono Raceway are among his better tracks in the past three years and he could cut the margin considerably in the coming weeks. That makes him a focused driver and an extremely good fantasy value

Sprint Cup regular Kyle Busch had the best 10-lap consecutive average speed in the XFINITY Series final practice for the Lakes Region 200 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

The average speed of 127.781 mph in the No. 54 Toyota Camry was best of the 16 cars that ran 10 consecutive laps on the track for this final practice session. No. 22 Brad Keselowski, No. 20 Denny Hamlin, No. 3 Ty Dillon and No. 88 Ben Rhodes are the rest of the top five on this list.

Hot off his second NASCAR Sprint Cup Series win of the season at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, Monster Energy driver Kyle Bush returns to the seat of the No. 54 Monster Energy Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) Toyota Camry this week at New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) in Loudon.

At the New England track this Saturday, Busch will make his 300th XFINITY Series start piloting the black Toyota Camry and works to offer the Joe Gibbs Racing No. 54 team their third taste of victory this year.
