MOORESVILLE, N.C.  – The No. 54 Monster Energy team and Kyle Busch travel to the ‘Motor City’ this Saturday, to attempt their seventh win of the season at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, competing in the Alliance Truck Parts 250. Busch will make his 11th NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) start piloting the black Toyota Camry this year with Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR). Previously on the two-mile D-shaped oval Busch has earned one win, four top-five and four top-10 finishes over his Nationwide Series career at Michigan. Joe Gibbs Racing across all three of NASCAR’s top-racing divisions in 116 starts at MIS has earned nine wins, 36 top-five finishes, 62 top-10 finishes, five poles and 869 laps led. While Busch last experienced NNS Victory Lane at Michigan in 2004, with a previous manufacturer, No. 54 team crew chief Adam Stevens is the defending Toyota winner of this spring MIS event. In 2012, with former JGR driver Joey Logano, Stevens and team led 31 laps and brought home the victory. Those same team members who earned last year’s win, work under Stevens again this year and are joined now with Kyle Busch. Needless to say, together, they will be a powerhouse to contend with. Kyle Busch, Driver of the No. 54 NASCAR Nationwide Series Monster Energy Camry: What do you expect from Michigan this week, another track where you and the crew have both experienced victories? “We’ll see what the track surface brings. I know it will be fast and we’ll be ‘wide open’—I’m looking forward to returning to the No. 54 with Adam (Stevens, crew chief) and the guys. We’ll have a strong car this weekend.” Adam Stevens, Crew Chief of the No. 54 NASCAR Nationwide Series Monster Energy Camry: As we enter Michigan this week, we visit another track where you are a defending race winner, having earned victory here in 2012 with Joey Logano. What do you like about this race track and your chances for another win here with Kyle Busch? “I am pumped to be back with KB this weekend. We let one get away at Dover and under performed last week at Iowa. We had a great weekend at Michigan last year. It’s a totally different place than it used to be since the repave. You really have to maximize your wide open throttle time to be good here. You can’t tell who has a good car until you get 10 or 15 laps on your tires. If you have to lift a little more than the next guy it will really show up at this point. It was awesome to get a win for Toyota at MIS last year. We had a good car at Fontana earlier this year and are hoping the setup will work again this weekend.”  -Kyle Busch Motorsports PR
