Kyle Busch drew a pit road speeding penalty on lap 63, which put him in heavy traffic. He was unable to move forward, and was in the eye of the storm on lap 126 when he was swept into a Brian Vickers vs. Kyle Larson accident. His day never improved and he finished 36th.
The biggest drama of the race was when he pulled into his pits on lap 442 and abandoned his car for the crew to push to the hauler. This initiated an emotional verbal response from crew chief Dave Rogers and suggests there could be trouble in the team. Aug 24 - 6:44 PM

Sprint Cup regular (No. 18 Toyota) Kyle Busch wins the Coors Light Pole Award for the 33rd Annual Food City 300 with a lap of 15.333 seconds, 125.142 mph.

This is the No. 54 Toyota driver's 41st pole in 287 NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) races. It is his fifth pole and 15th top-10 NNS start in 2014. This is his fourth pole in 21 NNS races at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Kyle Busch recorded the quickest average speed in the first practice session for the Irwin Tools Night Race. He went 127.186 mph in a 10-lap session from his lap 57 through 66.

Busch is tantalizing this week like he is every time the series rolls into Bristol. His biggest obstacle on Saturday night will be staying out of trouble, however, and that is not predictable.

Sprint Cup driver Kyle Busch has the best 10-lap consecutive average speed in the Nationwide Series Happy Hour practice for the Food City 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway.

The average speed of 122.862 mph in the No. 54 Toyota Camry was best of the 23 cars that ran 10 consecutive laps on the track for this final practice session. No. 42 Kyle Larson, No. 9 Chase Elliott, No. 11 Elliott Sadler and No. 5 Kevin Harvick are the rest of the top five on this list.

Kyle Busch earned four victories in five races from 2009 through 2011, but reality has set in since. In the six races after his latest victory he has only two top-10s and an average of 15.7.

Busch is the stereotypical all-or-nothing driver on most tracks and Bristol is no exception. He will either challenge for a top-five or crash in Saturday’s Irwin Tools Night Race, so fantasy players need to assess their stomach for risk before activating the No. 18.

Sprint Cup regular (No. 18 Toyota Camry) Kyle Busch wins the Keystone Light Pole Award for the 17th Annual UNOH 200 presented by ZLOOP with a lap of 15.392 seconds, 124.662 mph.

Kyle Busch slapped the wall while running 24th on lap four and damaged his Toyota. He was forced to the garage for repairs and finished more than 40 laps off the pace in 39th.

Busch is an all or nothing driver with three second-place finishes and three results of 39th or worse in the past seven races. That makes him a difficult fantasy pick most weeks.

Kyle Busch incurred a penalty for removing equipment from his pit box on his first stop and quickly turned a bad situation worse by aggressively racing Martin Truex Jr. and banging the two cars together in retaliation for an on track incident. He spent most of the first half of the Cheez-it 355k at the Glen behind the wall affecting repairs and finished 40th.

Busch’s temper is one of the reasons he is a questionable fantasy value most weeks, but a near-perfect record of top-10s at Watkins Glen made him appear to be a good choice before the race began. He was popular in most games, however, which softened the blow of his poor finish.
Aug 10 - 11:11 PM

Kyle Busch posted the third fastest single lap in final practice for the Cheez-it 355k at the Glen. His top speed was 128.660 mph.

Busch is 12/1,000ths of a second behind Marcos Ambrose and 15/1,000ths behind AJ Allmendinger. Busch is the defending champion of this race; Ambrose won two of the last three, so the final laps on Sunday should be exciting if these three drivers play their strategy right.

Kyle Busch has the longest active streak of top-10s at the Glen. He has finished that well in his last eight races, which includes a victory last year.

Eight top-10s is nearly perfect for Busch on this track. The only time he finished worse than ninth was in his inaugural attempt in 2005 when he was 33rd, but even then he managed to complete all the laps. In fact, in 19 road course starts at the Cup level he has never failed to finish on the lead lap.

A blown engine ended Kyle Busch’s day on lap 23 of the GoBowling.com 400. He recorded a disappointing finish of only 42nd.

Joe Gibbs Racing power is typically reliable, however, and this is Busch’s first blown engine in his last 46 races. On the other hand, he has been slowed or stopped by crash damage in 12 of those same 46 events (26 percent of the time).
