Kyle Busch looks to improve one position over his last two unrestricted speedway efforts. He finished second to Brad Keselowski at Kentucky and New Hampshire. This week, he hopes to shed his role as a bridesmaid and become the bride.
There is a lot to be said for entering a race like the Brickyard 400 with momentum on one’s side and Busch has been good there in the past. He enters the weekend with a four-race, top-10 streak but only one of those was a top-five. He finished second in the 2012 edition of this race and could be due a victory if the cards fall his way.

Kyle Busch finished second to Brad Keselowski at New Hampshire and Kentucky, which brought his top-10 average up to 47 percent at the end of the Camping World RV Sales 301.

Busch has to be disappointed with finishing in the runner-up position in those races to the same driver, but players should remember just how dominant Keselowski’s Ford was in each event. Busch and the Joe Gibbs Racing team could be poised to score another one or two victories before the Chase begins.

Kyle Busch failed to win either New Hampshire race last year, but he could not have come any closer with runner-up finishes in both the Camping World RV Sales 301 and Sylvania 300.

Before fantasy players get too excited about his odds this week, however, they should note that he has only one other top-five in his previous 10 New Hampshire races. He should be considered a provisionally good pick pending the outcome of practice and qualification to be started only if he excels in these sessions.
