HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. – If there was one person who best described the attitude of everyone involved in Saturday night’s NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway, it would be former track President H.A. “Humpy” Wheeler, who once called it a race in which the owner of the car tells the driver, “Bring me back the trophy or the steering wheel.”
While it’s uncertain whether team owner Joe Gibbs has said this to Kyle Busch, driver of the No. 18 SNICKERS Bites Toyota Camry in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, the talented young driver certainly would be expected to do just that, even without the urging of the man who cuts his paycheck.
Busch locked in his spot for this year’s All-Star event – comprised primarily of 2012 and 2013 Sprint Cup race winners, plus past All-Star Race winners and past series champions – via his one series win in 2012 and two wins in NASCAR’s top series thus far in 2013. This year’s wins came at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif., in March and Texas

Kyle Busch won the North Carolina Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte Motor Speedway for his fifth truck win at the track.
The race began with Jeb Burton on the pole but Kyle Busch moved to the front of the field by lap four. A caution for Joey Coulter cutting a right front tire jumbled up the field as some trucks had already began pit stops and were trapped a lap down. Notable drivers...
You know, a few weeks ago at Talladega, I was in the garage area and did an interview with Kyle Busch. It was following the incident between him and Kasey Kahne. Sometime later, I also got to talk to Kasey about his reaction.
When I was with Kyle, I could definitely see some remorse and actual frustration with himself over what had happened. We all know that Kyle is an aggressive...
KYLE BUSCH, No. 18 Snickers Bites Toyota Camry, Joe Gibbs Racing | Starting Position: 4th
How was the qualifying run? “Everything was pretty good right there, but felt like I gave up a little bit in the middle of (turns) three and four. Other than that, I felt like our Snickers Bites Camry was really good. Race speed was really good today and the car moved around the race track...
It may have taken awhile, but Kyle Busch is back on top of the Camping World Truck Series. He has been absent from victory lane since New Hampshire in 2011 and this win broke his seven race losing streak in the series. Busch started out running well in the race, but then a pit road mistake left him at the back of the field during the latter part of the event. He battled back to the...
