Kurt Busch was fastest in the morning session and he repeated that feat in final practice for the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. During the afternoon his fastest laps was logged at 188.653 mph during the heat of the day.

Drivers have to make the transition from day to night, which means the track undergoes many changes. The ability to adjust is a big key to success, so Busch leading both sessions is a high recommendation.

Kurt Busch posted the fastest single lap in Saturday morning’s practice session with a speed of 192.644 mph, which was significantly faster than his qualification speed of 191.714 mph that landed him 14th on the grid.

Busch has plenty of time to climb up the order on Sunday night and he has been one of the best values in every unrestricted, intermediate speedway race this year. He is highly recommended to fantasy owners.

Kurt Busch won Segment 4 (of 5) in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The No. 41 Chevrolet SS driver entered the race 16th in the lineup. Kevin Harvick, Denny Hamlin, Brad Keselowski and Kasey Kahne round out the rest of the top five in this segment. Final Segment 5 is a 10-lap shootout.

Kyle Busch may have posted the fastest single lap in practice for the all-star race, but his brother Kurt had the quickest 10-lap time. His average was 185.338 mph from his laps 28 through 37.

The all-star race gets broken into segments and long green flag runs can be hard to maintain, but Busch’s record in recent races suggest he will more than likely finish among the top 10.

Kurt Busch has alternated top-10s and sub-10th-place finishes in his last seven all-star races. He finished third and first in 2009/2010 and was eighth and fifth in 2012/2013. He finished 11th last year, so if the pattern holds he is due another strong run this week.

Better still, Busch has been one of the primary competitors to Jimmie Johnson and Kevin Harvick on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year. He could easily earn his second all-star win on Saturday.

After 400 miles and a two-hour rain delay, Kurt Busch finished precisely where he started in the SpongeBob 400 at Kansas Speedway. He rolled off the grid eighth and finished eighth.

Busch led 20 laps of the contest, but had a fairly quiet day overall. With a win under his belt and a top-16 position in the points, he did earned well for his fantasy owners. So far in 2015, Busch has swept the top 15.

Kurt Busch led the most laps in the Toyota Owners 400 and won in dominant fashion. After missing the first three races of the season to suspension, he is now in Chase contention.

Busch came close to winning in his first two races back at Phoenix International Raceway and Auto Club Speedway with a fifth and third respectively. He has been a fantasy favorite every week and final earned maximum points.

Kurt Busch qualified third for Saturday night’s Toyota Owners 400, which is his second-best qualification effort ever at Richmond International Raceway.

Busch qualified Barney Visser’s No. 78 second in the fall 2013 race. That was a great omen for the beleaguered driver at the time because he also finished second in the race. His 10-lap averages this week were not strong enough to make him a favorite for a top-five, but fantasy owners do not want to count against him.
Apr 24 - 11:07 PM

Kurt Busch posted the fastest single lap in final practice for the Food City 500. His top speed was 127.554 mph.

Busch was also strong (both fast and quick) in Saturday morning’s session and qualified well. He should be considered one of four or five favorites to win on Sunday.
Apr 18 - 12:27 PM

Kurt Busch posted the second-quickest 10-lap average in Saturday morning’s practice session for the Food City 500. His top speed was 125.158 mph in his first 10 laps on the track. He also had the fourth-fastest single lap of 126.088 during his fourth trip around the track.

Busch has five previous wins at Bristol and would like to visit Victory Lane once more. That will punch his ticket to the Chase and complete his return to racing.
Apr 18 - 11:02 AM

Kurt Busch posted a lap of 193.847 mph in the final round of qualification for the Duck Commander 500 and won the pole for Saturday night’s race.

This is Busch’s second pole of the season. The last time he led the field to green was at Auto Club and in that race he was one of two dominant drivers. Busch came within a corner of winning the Auto Club 400. Teammate Kevin Harvick lines up to his outside.
Apr 10 - 7:41 PM

Kurt Busch sat out the first three races of the season when he was suspended by NASCAR. He returned and challenged for victories at Phoenix and Auto Club.

Busch also ran well at Martinsville before he lost the handling on his Chevrolet and fell back to 14th. The Easter off-week might actually prove to have a negative impact on him, however, since it allows him time to lose some of the emotion that was driving him.
Apr 7 - 9:35 PM

Kurt Busch posted the fastest single lap in final practice with a speed of 97.098 mph. Busch also reportedly had the second quickest 10-lap average.

Busch is going to have his work cut out for him on Sunday because he qualified only 26th for the STP 500. He can get the job accomplished, however, because he started 22nd in last year’s edition of this same race en route to Victory Lane.
Mar 28 - 1:53 PM

Kurt Busch led 65 laps including the white flag one, but was passed by first Brad Keselowski and then Kevin Harvick on the final circuit. Busch finished third, which was his second straight top-five since returning from suspension.

Two tires ultimately proved to be his undoing as he was passed by Keselowski for the lead. The No. 2 had four fresh tires. Teammate Harvick got around him for second within yards of the finish line after Busch slapped the frontstretch wall.
