Kurt Busch finished third in the FireKeepers 400 at Michigan International behind teammates Clint Bowyer and Kevin Harvick. That gave Stewart-Haas Racing a sweep of the top three.

That was Busch's first Michigan top-five since he won the rain-shortened spring race of 2015. He has narrowly missed the top 10 in his last three starts, but was not on a lot of radar screens before the race started.

Kurt Busch has led the most laps halfway through the second stage of the FireKeepers 400 at Michigan International Raceway.

Busch jumped out to an early lead and kept it for 46 laps during stage one. With 100 laps in the books, he remains the lap leader.

Kurt Busch posted a lap of 203.361 mph in the final round of qualification at Michigan International Speedway and will lead the FireKeepers 400 to the green flag this Sunday.

That marks the fastest qualification lap since Jeff Gordon set a new track record. Busch has not been much of a factor at Michigan in the last four years with results ranging from 0th through 12th. He is liable to finish better than that on Sunday, but cannot be considered a favorite to win the race unless he shows long-run speed in Saturday's practice.

Kurt Busch finished eighth in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, which was his 10th top-15 in 13 races this year.

Busch is not burning up the track, but his level of consistency is so great that he is much more fantasy relevant than one might suppose. Feel confident holding onto him until he stumbles in consecutive races.

Kurt Busch had a even-race streak of top-10 finishes at Charlotte Motor Speedway come to an end last fall in the Bank of America 500 when he slipped to 22nd.

Busch’s average finish in the seven previous races was 7.0. Even with that poor result last fall, he now has eight top-15s in the last 10 races at Charlotte. The down side of starting him is not very great, but he must be rightly-priced to be a good value. Only two of his last 10 attempts ended in top-fives.

It finally happened. In a four-wide battle during an overtime in stage three, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. tipped Martin Truex Jr. in front of Brad Keselowski, Kyle Busch, and Kurt Busch. Clint Bowyer and Austin Dillon were also involved.

This is the potentially damaging consequence of such close racing on a 1.5-mile track. Most of the cars will be unable to continue.

On lap two of the All-Star Race, Kurt Busch spun and hit the turn three wall

Busch did damage and pushed his spoiler up. He should be able to continue, but will lose a lap in the process.

Kurt Busch narrowly avoided the seven-car accident at the end of the KC Masterpiece 400 at Kansas Speedway and survived to finish eighth.

This was the third consecutive top-10 for Busch – the first of 2018. He has been hovering around that mark most of the season and could start to engender some confidence among Fantasy NASCAR players.

Kurt Busch has scored two top-fives in the last two years at Kansas Speedway.

Busch finished third in the 2016 400 (which is what the spring race was called that year) and second in last fall’s Hollywood Casino 400. He swept the top 10 in 2015, so he should be regarded as a driver to watch this weekend.

Kurt Busch finished fifth in the AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway after starting the race in ninth.

This marks the first time Stewart-Haas Racing has placed three drivers in the top five. The organization has been strong, but Busch and Aric Almirola have lagged behind slightly. With Busch’s result, they should move up in fantasy players’ estimation.

Kurt Busch had a tire get lose at the end of stage one of the AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway.

Busch will have to drop to the back of the longest line, but he is on the lead lap.

Kurt Busch finished second in the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway, which was his seventh top-10 in the last eight races on this track.

Busch did not quite have the run he needed on Logano at the end to get the win, but he managed to keep his car clean. That was not small feat given that the race was marred by a more-tan, 15-car wreck in the closing laps.

11th-place finisher, Kurt Busch lead 98 laps of the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond Raceway after starting the race sixth.

That made him one of the top values in games that offer bonus points for laps led. Busch challenged for the win in the late stages, but seemed to get shuffled back in the closing laps.

Kurt Busch took the lead from Joey Logano on the first lap of green in the second segment of the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond Raceway.

Busch was strong at the end of segment one, but he used up his tires trying to catch Logano. The key to success will be how the No. 41 maintains its long run speed.
