Kyle Busch finished 10th at Michigan International Speedway in the Pure Michigan 400 after starting the afternoon sixth.

That made him one of only three drivers to sweep the top 10 this season, which was a little surprising considering that four racers doubled down on top-fives last year.
Aug 13 - 8:47 PM

Kyle Busch posted the second fastest lap in the first practice session for the Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway at 202.327 mph.

While his lap was .221 second slower than Blaney, one is never quite certain what teams are working on in practice. Busch has been one of the best values on a weekly basis. Joe Gibbs Racing is great at Michigan. And the Toyotas have momentum coming into the Big Three’s auto manufacturers’ backyard. That is a recipe for success.

One week after entering the Dixieland 250 in Wisconsin, Kyle Busch is now preparing to do double duty at Kalamazoo Speedway this Wednesday night.

The former Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion will compete in both the ARCA/CRA Super Series Super Late Model portion and the Outlaw Super Late Model feature. Tuesday night’s trip to Kalamazoo Michigan will be the second of Busch’s career. He won the 2014 ARCA/CRA Super Series portion of the Klash. Busch will be piloting his own Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota in the SLM feature and will be running an Outlaw SLM housed by Senneker Performance. Senneker Performance is the same company that builds cars for five-time Klash winner, Terry Senneker, Jr.

Kyle Busch finished seventh in the I Love New York 355 at Watkins Glen International after leading the field to green from the pole.

Bad fortune and questionable judgment contributed to his demise. He had a lugnut hang between his wheel and brake caliper. He was charging through the field when he attempted to get around Brad Keselowski in a dangerous spot on the track, which caused him to spin and lose tack position. Considering those problems, it was remarkable that he managed to salvage a top-10.

With a lap of 126.925 mph, Kyle Busch will lead the I Love New York 355 at Watkins Glen International to green later today, Sunday, August 6.

Busch will start on the front row for the third straight week and fourth time in five races. Last week he won the Overton’s 400 at Pocono Raceway after leading the field to green and he finished fifth at Kentucky Speedway in early July.

Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series regular Kyle Busch, driving the No. 18 NOS Rowdy Toyota, won the Zippo 200 at The Glen, his 90th victory in 336 NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) races.

This is his fourth victory and seventh top-10 NXS finish in 2017. It is his first victory and seventh top-10 finish in ten NXS races at Watkins Glen International (WGI). Cup regular Joey Logano (second) posted his seventh top-10 finish in ten NXS races at WGI. It is his seventh top-10 NXS finish in 2017. Another Cup driver, Brad Keselowski (third), posted his eighth top-10 finish in nine NXS races at WGI. William Byron (10th) was the highest finishing Rookie of the Year contender. Elliott Sadler (finished 18th in the race) leads the NXS point standings by 52 points over Byron.

Kyle Busch posted the single fastest lap in the first practice session for the I Love New York 355 at Watkins Glen International with a speed of 125.516 mph.

Busch is often an unheralded road course racer, although we did take a moment to herald him in this week’s DFS story. He will be expensive in salary cap games, but there is every reason to believe he will earn top-five points.

Finally everyone can stop asking when Kyle Busch will win. He took the lead with 15 laps remaining in the Overton’s 400 at Pocono Raceway and built a 6.2 second advantage en route to his first win of the season.

Busch has not won in 36 races, which is the longest of his career. This is Toyota’s 100th win and it locks Busch into the playoffs. Busch is a streaky driver and now that he has won, he might go on a streak. This is also Busch’s first-ever win at Pocono.
Jul 30 - 6:18 PM

Kyle Busch posted a lap of 179.372 mph in the final round of qualification for the Overton’s 400 at Pocono Raceway and will lead the field to green about two and half hours after Sunday’s session.

Busch led the field to green this spring as well and finished only ninth. With solid times in practice, he clearly has a good car, but the question remains as to whether he can stay out of trouble and finally get his first win of 2017.
Jul 30 - 12:30 PM

Kyle Busch posted the fastest single lap in final practice for the Overton’s 400 at Pocono Raceway and it came in the final seconds of the session.

Busch’s fastest lap was 176.824 mph, which was .265 seconds faster than the field. He keeps getting close to Victory Lane but something happens during the race—like last week’s accident at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. If he stays out of trouble, he will challenge for the win, but that is a big "if".

Kyle Busch recorded a lap of 187.301 mph in the final round of qualification for Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and will lead the field to green on Sunday.

Last year Busch started on the pole and won his second consecutive race at Indy. He finished second in 2014 and has to be one a heavy favorite.
