HOMESTEAD, FL - NOVEMBER 21: Kyle Busch, driver of the #18 Z-Line Designs Toyota, celebrates from his car as a crew member brings the championship flag after winning the NASCAR Nationwide Series Championship and the Ford 300 at Homestead-Miami Speedway on November 21, 2009 in Homestead, Florida.

Kyle Busch's recent string of bad luck in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series continued early in Sunday's Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway.    Running 19th after moving up from his 24th-place starting spot, Busch's No. 18 Toyota bobbled as it exited Turn 4 on Lap 3, hitting the outside wall.      With heavy damage to the right side, Busch pulled the car behind the wall as the team went to work making repairs.      This is the third consecutive week Busch and the No. 18 team has struggled. Busch finished 42nd at Pocono Raceway after an engine failure, and finished 40th last weekend at Watkins Glen International after heavy contact with Martin Truex Jr. damaged the left front of the car.      This run of poor finishes comes after Busch scored three second-place finishes in four weeks at Kentucky Speedway, New Hampshire Motor Speedway, and Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
