Sitting on the pole with a record lap isn’t a terrible way to start a race weekend, especially in one of the biggest short-track events in the country. That is, unless you get disqualified and plopped at the back of a last-chance qualifying race.
Kyle Busch won his first ever Sprint Cup championship tonight at the Ford EcoBoost 400. I know what you’re thinking: he broke his leg early this year and had to sit for 11 races. How on earth did he end up winning the championship? By owning the last half of the season, that’s how.
NASCAR’s Bank of America 500 brings us a most confusing Tale of Two Kyles. One Kyle wants to pit. One Kyle might not want to pit. Both end up in a hit. It’s Kyle-on-Kyle action, but not the kind you’d expect from terrible NASCAR fanfiction. No, this was from today’s race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Everyone was gathered around the Sprint Cup championship trophy for his win at Richmond International Raceway to celebrate getting into the Chase for the Sprint Cup, and poor Clint Bowyer gets a ball tap from Kyle Busch.
After finally cracking into the top 30 in the Sprint Cup standings last weekend with a second place finish at Watkins Glen, Kyle Busch had an unfortunate off in practice this morning that will force him to use a back-up car for tomorrow’s race. Per Autoweek, that back-up car means he’ll start from the back.
To say that today’s Sprint Cup Windows 10 400 at Pocono Raceway was chaotic would be the understatement of the year. After racking up seven cautions in the first 72 laps alone, the race ran long and nuttier than usual. Watch how it ended: with cars everywhere dropping like flies from running out of fuel.
NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Joey Logano is tired of being second. Remember “If you ain’t first, you’re last?” I’m pretty sure that’s a good summary of what Logano had to say after today’s Brickyard 400.
Look at this tight little pass. Look and marvel. This is how Kyle Busch got back on the lead lap after being stuck a lap behind. Busch was on fresh tires, but the leaders were not. Since Busch had more speed, he just threaded right on through and got back on the lead lap.
Thought you’d take Kyle Busch out of the running for the Chase for the Sprint Cup, eh, Kyle’s early season leg injury? Yeah, well, screw you. Kyle has been driving like a man out to salvage his shortened season, grabbing his second win in only seven races tonight.
Kyle Busch and wife Samantha look happy to be leaving the Halifax Medical Center in Florida. Busch was released following a horrific accident during the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday. He will be transferred to a North Carolina hospital for further treatment.
Kyle Busch found one of the remaining hard barriers on a NASCAR track that isn't covered by an impact absorbing SAFER barrier during today's Xfinity Series race at Daytona. Busch hit the concrete wall inside Turn 1, suffering a right lower leg compound fracture and left mid-foot fracture from the impact.
The most evocative car races in history were when racecars competed on public roads. Monaco. Le Mans. The Carrera Panamericana. Those all featured wimpy sports racers, though. What happens when you put a Nascar on public streets?
The cable, which belonged to FOX, snapped and struck several cars at lap 124 of the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Kyle Busch was in the lead, and presumably driving upwards of 200 miles an hour when the cable snapped and struck his car and others', causing the race to be red-flagged.
Multi-time MotoGP Champion and delightful Italian Valentino Rossi loves going fast. He's driven pretty much every race car you can imagine. Just the other week, he was in Charlotte to sample Kyle Busch's NASCAR Nationwide car. I want his life.
Kyle Busch took the checkered flag today in California, but attention quickly turned to Denny Hamlin—whose crash sent him to the hospital and which let Busch take the lead on the final lap—and Joey Logano, who tangled with Hamlin and eventually found himself the target of Tony Stewart's fists.
NASCAR's Kurt Busch is a jerk. A jerk with a surprisingly awesome sense of humor. Facing a race at Talladega with no sponsors, he entered it with the Ricky Bobby "ME" paint job from Talladega Nights and quoted the film as he drove in circles.
Last night's WinStar World Casino NASCAR truck race (for real, that's the name) ended early for Kyle Busch after he put championship contender Ron Hornaday in the wall on purpose following a scuffle early in the race. NASCAR parked him for the rest of the race and just announced he's out all weekend.
Nascar points leader Kyle Busch lost his driver's license for 45 days yesterday for driving 128 mph on a road close to a day-care center and church in a nearly $400,000 Lexus LFA. The car was bright yellow. It was real nice. No, he didn't get it at Wal-Mart.
