Chase contenders Kyle Busch finished seventh and Kurt Busch finished eighth in the MyAFibStory.com 400 at Chicagoland. Even more remarkable, the brothers survived contact with one another late in the race before earning their top-10s.
They took different paths in the past several races to get into the Chase, but both have stepped up their effort to begin the playoffs. This was Kyle’s first top-10 since Indianapolis, but it was the fourth such finish in that same span of races for Kurt. Neither driver has shown noteworthy consistency, however, and they need to string more than two top-10s together before fantasy owners view them as favorites. Sep 14 - 8:29 PM

Sprint Cup regular (No. 18 Toyota Camry) Kyle Busch wins the Lucas Oil 225, his 41st victory in 123 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) races.

This is the No. 51 Toyota Tundra driver's sixth victory and seventh top-10 NCWTS finish in 2014. This is his fourth victory and fifth top-10 finish in five NCWTS races at Chicagoland Speedway.

Rain has washed out qualification for the MyAFibStory.com 400 at Chicagoland, which will place Kyle Busch on the pole. Busch posted the fastest speed in the first practice session, which will also set the remainder of the grid.

This could be the good fortune that Busch needs to get his Chase off to a strong start. Last year he started 12th in the Geico 400 and finished second. Fantasy owners should watch him closely during Saturday’s practices and consider him a strong dark horse.

Kyle Busch posted the fastest single lap in Friday’s first practice session for the MyAFibStory.com 400 at Chicagoland. His top speed was 191.442 mph.

That makes Busch one of the favorites to win the pole later on Friday and this team desperately needs something good to happen. They have not scored a single top-10 and have only one top-15 in the last six races of the this season despite starting eighth or better three times.

Kyle Busch enters the weekend with back-to-back top-fives in his last two Chicagoland races. He finished fourth in 2012 and was the runner-up to teammate Matt Kenseth last year.

Busch has not scored a top-10 since Indianapolis this July and last week’s 14th-place finish in the Federated Auto Parts 400 was his first top-15 in six races. He needs to turn his fortune around dramatically and will concentrate on his past success at Chicagoland. That should be sufficient to get him back inside the top 10.

Kyle Busch's seemingly flawless race Friday night at Richmond International Raceway didn't go completely without a hitch.

NASCAR officials announced that the rear gear of Busch's winning Joe Gibbs Racing No. 54 Toyota would be taken to the NASCAR Research & Development Center in Concord, North Carolina., for further evaluation. It was the only issue reported from post-race technical inspection after Friday night's Virginia529 College Savings 250. Busch was the Coors Light Pole Award winner and led all 250 laps of his fourth Nationwide Series victory of the year and his 67th win of his career on the tour.

Sprint Cup driver Kyle Busch wins the Virginia529 College Savings 250 from the pole, his 67th victory in 289 NASCAR Nationwide Series races.

Busch led all 250 laps, the second time in his career that he has led every lap in an NNS race. He was the last driver to accomplish the feat, on Feb. 26, 2011 at Phoenix International Raceway. This is Busch's fourth victory and 18th top-10 NNS finish in 2014. This is his fifth victory and 16th top-10 finish in 19 NNS races at Richmond International Raceway.

This is the No. 54 Toyota Camry driver's 42nd pole in 289 NNS races. It is his sixth pole and 17th top-10 NNS start in 2014. This is Busch's fourth pole in 19 NNS races at Richmond International Raceway.

Kyle Busch’s third-place finish at Richmond this spring in the Toyota Owners 400 stands alone among his recent short track attempts. That is his only top-10 and one of only four top-15s in his past eight races.

Busch has been on a downward spiral in recent weeks, but his 16th-place finish in the Oral-B USA 500 actually showed some progress. He suffered crash damage early in that race and was forced to rally from what could have been a sub-25th-place finish.

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.

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.
