The top three starters of the AAA 400 Drive for Autism at Dover International Speedway were all involved in a lap-353, 18-car accident. Pole sitter Kevin Harvick finished 15th and was running at the end, but outside pole winner Dale Earnhardt Jr. and third-place starter Kyle Busch finished 32nd and 30th respectively.
That destroyed several rosters in games that offered place-differential points. Harvick led 117 laps early to offset some of the damage, but neither Busch nor Earnhardt led a single lap. May 20 - 10:40 AM

Kyle Busch crashed twice in the 2013 Hollywood Casino 400, but he has been almost perfect in 21 similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track races since then. He has finished on the lead lap in all but one of those events, earned two victories, and has 12 top-fives.

Better still, one of his victories and five consecutive top-fives came in the most recent races. He is also picking up place-differential points with starting positions ranging from 39th to 15th in his most recent three attempts.

Kyle Busch finished second in the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway.

This was Busch’s fourth top-five in the past eight races on this track. Two of his remaining results were just outside the top 10, but his other pair of performances wound up outside the top 35.

Kyle Busch lightly scraped the wall on the backstretch and lost his race momentum during the final lap of the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond International Raceway. That allowed teammate Carl Edwards to get to his back bumper and the No. 19 nudged the 18 out of the lead on the final lap.

Busch was disappointed with the finish and undoubtedly unhappy with his teammate, but this was a great rebound for the No. 18. His second-place finish is the 11th time in the past 13 races that he finished in the top five.

Kyle Busch won the last two races and had a 28-race winning streak to his credit entering the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway, but an apparently risky setup on most of the Joe Gibbs Racing contributed to accidents. Kyle Busch crashed three times and ultimately failed to finish on lap 258.

Busch finished 38th, which is the only the second time in his last 12 races that he failed to finish among the top five. His other poor result came four weeks ago at Auto Club Speedway and was also the result of crash damage. Busch remains fifth in the points’ standings.

Kyle Busch posted the quickest 10-lap average in Saturday morning’s practice session for the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway. His top speed of 125.569 mph was posted from laps three through 12.

Busch has been one of the dominant drivers in salary cap games for his tendency to lead laps and race with the leaders. Rolling off the grid fifth, he should be able to get to the front within 25 laps and will bank a lot of points.

Kyle Busch was fastest in the second practice session for the Food City 500 at Bristol (TN) Motor Speedway.

One week after sweeping Victory Lane in Martinsville Speedway with wins in the Truck Series race, Kyle Busch swept at Texas Motor Speedway as well. He won Friday night’s XFINITY race and the Cup race on Saturday night.

Busch dominated both Martinsville races and XFINITY this week, but he used patience to maintain a top-10 position in the Duck Commander 500. He is adding ammunition to his arsenal and becoming a great overall value.

Kyle Busch stayed out on old tires with 12 laps remaining and held off the field to win the STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway. He started the race seventh.

Prior to Saturday’s Camping World Truck Series victory, Busch had never won at Martinsville in one of NASCAR’s top series. Fantasy owners can be forgiven if he did not anchor their roster, but those who saved enough salary cap with mid-range drivers benefitted by gambling on "Shrub." Busch dominated the race by leading 352 laps and spending the most time among the top five in the field.
