Kyle Busch’s 26 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victories have come at 17 different racetracks of virtually every shape and size – living proof of the Las Vegas native’s versatility and fierce appetite for checkered flags. Always looking for more, the driver of the No. 18 M’Prove America™ Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) can’t help but think about the voids on his racing resume, one of which he would most certainly love to fill this weekend. Sunday, he’ll have his sights set on one of NASCAR’s “Crown Jewel” events when the Sprint Cup Series heads to historic Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the Crown Royal Presents the Samuel Deeds 400 at the Brickyard – aka the Brickyard 400. Busch would like nothing more than to add to his win list a race he and his fellow competitors consider part of Sprint Cup’s “Big Three” – the Daytona 500 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway, the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway, and the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis. There are certainly reasons for optimism this year for Busch and the M&M’s team as they hope to capture their first crown jewel win together at Indianapolis, not the least of which is Busch’s solid runner-up finish at the historic 2.5-mile oval a year ago this weekend. And, to further help the cause, Busch and JGR teammates Matt Kenseth and Denny Hamlin spent two days in a private test session at Indy earlier this month aimed at generating useful information to be applied to what will hopefully be a winning setup for Sunday afternoon’s 400-mile race. Busch’s No. 18 Toyota will carry a special M&M’s Red, White, and Blue scheme in support of the M&M’s M’Prove America campaign, a year-long partnership with Habitat for Humanity designed to fund construction of new Habitat homes across the United States. Fans can join Busch and M&M’s by pledging to volunteer their time and talents at Habitat for Humanity build sites across the country at www.mproveamerica.com. Fans also can support the M’Prove America program by purchasing specially marked red, white and blue M&M’s at their local retailer through Labor Day.In addition to encouraging fans to volunteer time, M&M’s is donating $500,000 to Habitat for Humanity to fund the construction of Habitat homes in 2013 So, earning the right to kiss the “Yard of Bricks” come Sunday afternoon – a tradition for winning drivers and their team at the century-old speedway – would shoot straight to the top of Busch’s ever-growing list of accomplishments, for certain. And it also could mean much more as the season is quickly approaching NASCAR’s playoffs in September. TSC PR
