Originally written June 29, 2013 on Race Review Online:
SPARTA, KY- One driver that’s consistently good at the 1.5-mile Kentucky Speedway is Kyle Busch. The driver of the No. 18 Doublemint Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota this weekend had two very good practice sessions and qualified up front once again for Saturday night’s Quaker State 400. Busch was among the top in qualifying and race trim as he will start fourth in tomorrow night’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. Busch was the inaugural Cup Series pole and race winner at Kentucky two years ago and has the best driver rating at the track entering this weekend. Busch, has an average finish of 5.5 in two starts here. He has 66 green flag passes here and 92 fastest race laps. Where he’s good is he knows how to stay up front here and take track position. Tomorrow night is going to come down to track position yet again as drivers are complaining of it being a one groove possibly a two groove track. Busch’s average running position mid race is 1.5 so with a fast car and fourth place starting position he’s going to be among the leaders if not in the lead for much of the first half of Saturday night’s 400 mile race. Busch has led a series high 243 laps here which is nearly 1/2 of the total laps in the two years as he’s led 45.5-percent of the laps. He’s been in the top 15 96.6-percent of the time so it’s a safe bet he’s going to be a factor to earn his second win of the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season and his second in three years in Kentucky.
