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.

Kyle Busch could very easily become the second non-Chase driver to win a playoff race this year. Three of his last five attempts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks have ended in top-five finishes with one other seventh in that span.

Three of Busch’s last four races at Texas specifically also ended in top-fives and his biggest recommendation comes from his 2013 NRA 500 victory. He was third this spring and carried momentum into the track.

Kyle Busch has a current four-race streak of top-15s at Martinsville, but this might not be the best week to start him. Six of his previous nine races there ended well outside of the top 20.

Busch has always been an all or nothing driver and Martinsville is no exception. While cars are durable on short tracks, they will only take so much abuse and Busch could easily wind up outside the top 20 again this week in the Goody's 500.

Kyle Busch entered the Geico 500 with a 26-point cushion over the elimination bubble and as such was the most likely driver to advance to the Eliminator round on points. He raced conservatively in the back of the pack for most of the race, but was run over from behind on lap 104 when Aric Almirola and JJ Yeley triggered a 10-car accident. Busch finished 40th.

Busch sustained heavy damage, but the team completely remade the car in a mere 45 minutes. Still that was not enough to keep him from falling to ninth in the standings, seven markers behind Jeff Gordon—the last driver to advance based on points.

Kyle Busch posted the fastest single lap in the second practice session for the Geico 500. His top speed was 195.205 mph.

Only 21 drivers posted laps in this session with less than eight drivers posting more than 10 laps. At Talladega, you have what you have when rolling off the hauler.

Kyle Busch finished fifth in the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte to earn his fifth straight top-10. That keeps a perfect streak of top-10s alive during the Chase, which is a feat matched only by Joey Logano.

Busch has not scored five consecutive top-10s in the NASCAR Cup series since spring 2013. It is time to take him seriously as a fantasy value and perhaps as a contender for the championship.

Kyle Busch posted a lap of 197.390 mph in the third and final round of qualification for the Bank of America 500 and will lead the field to green on Saturday night.

This is the third pole of the season for Busch, but his two previous top starts this year are not particularly predictive because they were on the short, flat tracks of Martinsville in March and New Hampshire in July. The last time Busch won the pole on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track was at Texas last spring and he won the NRA 500.
