MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Coming off another successful weekend, winning their sixth NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) event of the season, the No. 54 Monster Energy team and Kyle Busch now turn their attention to the appropriately named “Monster Mile” that is Dover International Speedway. This weekend the 28-year-old will attempt to break his three-way tie with Todd Bodine and Carl Edwards for most wins (three) at Dover International Speedway in the Nationwide Series. Busch will make his 10th Nationwide Series start piloting the Monster Energy Toyota Camry with Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) on the concrete oval where he has earned three wins, seven top-five and 10 top-10 finishes. In addition, Busch has led a total of 853 laps over his NNS career at Dover. He dominated the event each of the last three times he earned victory at the Delaware track, leading the field 192, 191 and 157 of 200 laps in each of his winning runs during the Fall and Spring of 2010 and the Spring of 2008 respectively. Another area where Busch is strong at Dover is pole-qualifying, earning three first-place starting spots from 2008 to 2010. Not only did he start from the pole position during that time, but in both years he finished the day with victory. Three times in 2013 Busch and the No. 54 JGR team have started from the pole and taken the Monster Energy machine to victory, almost doing it a fourth time last week at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway, where Busch narrowly missed the pole, starting second and ending the day by taking the checkered flag. Odds are a win from the pole position could likely happen again. Busch last experienced Victory Lane at the Monster Mile in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2011. This weekend he’ll try once again to win in that series Friday night, then attempt to sweep the Nationwide and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series over the weekend, something he’s accomplished twice this year at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif. and at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth. Kyle Busch, Driver of the No. 54 NASCAR Nationwide Series Monster Energy Camry: Another track where you’ve had good success, what are your expectations for the ‘Monster Mile’ this weekend? “This is a favorite track for most in the garage because it’s so unique with the concrete and high banking. It’s fast and fun to maneuver, but challenging too – - you have to keep up with it. JGR has obviously run well here, sweeping both events in 2012, so we have good notes to return with. I have high expectations for this one since I feel I know the track pretty well, and I know Adam (Stevens, crew chief) has been successful here too. He won both of the races here last year, so I want another stab at it and this time we can win it together.” Adam Stevens, Crew Chief of the No. 54 NASCAR Nationwide Series Monster Energy Camry: This is a track where you or Kyle have won 5 of the 7 JGR NNS wins. Obviously together you two will be strong. What’s your strategy for Saturday? “Dover is a challenging one-mile track, because of the concrete and the way tires run out. You have to setup your car to run fast through the corners but also to maneuver easily as traffic can be an issue here. You have to balance tire pressures too so the driver has what he needs both at the beginning of a run with low air pressures and there at the end when pressures have built up. Kyle has proven himself on this fast track and I’ve had some success there too. Our team has really gotten themselves into a good rhythm, one that we’d like to continue, in order to keep bringing home the trophy.”
