MOORESVILLE, N.C. – This will be a busy weekend for NASCAR veteran Kyle Busch who is entered in all three NASCAR series events at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, a 1.5-mile oval where the younger Busch has seen much success. Busch has accomplished three victories at Kentucky Speedway, one in each of NASCAR’s top divisions, including inaugural events for Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series. In fact, Busch is the only NASCAR driver to have pulled off a win in all three national series events in one weekend, accomplishing the record in August 2010 at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway. In 2011 Busch almost pulled off the feat again, at Kentucky Speedway, where he won the Sprint Cup and Truck Series races and finished third in the Nationwide Series event. This weekend Busch will once again tackle three consecutive events racing Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights in the heat of the Kentucky Bluegrass. Overall Busch has one win (2004), three top-five finishes and 311 laps led in the Nationwide Series at the 13-year old facility. In 27 races, Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) in the NASCAR Nationwide Series at Kentucky Speedway records three wins, 10 top-five finishes, 13 top-10 finishes, four poles and 567 laps led. The JGR No. 54 Monster Energy team has already earned six series wins this season and look to accomplish their next victory, under the lights Friday with their driver, the most decorated winner in the history of the NASCAR Nationwide Series, and a three-time visitor to victory lane at Kentucky. Kyle Busch, Driver of the No. 54 NASCAR Nationwide Series Monster Energy Camry: What do you expect from Kentucky this week in the Nationwide Series? “It will be a full schedule running all three series this weekend. The benefit of that is the amount of track time I’ll have, figuring out the bumps, what they are doing, how they’ve changed, if any, and how our car handling is set up for them. I’m usually better when I have these opportunities to run back to back, so this type of schedule works well –it’s a full weekend and it will be hot, but it will benefit us.” Adam Stevens, Crew Chief of the No. 54 NASCAR Nationwide Series Monster Energy Camry: Your last visit to Kentucky with Drew Herring yielded a top-five finish, what do you like about this race track and your chances for a win here with Kyle Busch? “Kentucky is a very challenging race track. The bumps get a little worse every year. It is by far the bumpiest track we go to and seems to change a lot every year. The entry into Turn 3 is treacherous. If you can get into there and drive through the bumps you will have a good weekend. We had a good run here with Drew last fall. Like every track we go to KB is very good there. The racing groove is pretty narrow so passing is quite a challenge. The previous tire combination didn’t fall off much so pit strategy has always been a big part of determining the winner. It’s as close to home as we get for me so I will have some friends and family in the stands.” -Kyle Busch Motorsports PR
