Race Review Online:
Sweeping all three NASCAR events at one track in a weekend is rare. It’s so rare that out of hundreds of opportunities, it’s only been done once. Kyle Busch accomplished the feat of winning the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race then the NASCAR Nationwide Series and Sprint Cup Series races at Bristol in August of 2010.
It hasn’t been done since and was never done before.
Busch, has been close a lot with most recently at Dover back in June. He and Brad Keselowski will try and accomplish that feat at the Kentucky Speedway this weekend. They have entered all three races at the 1.5-mile track this as they actually have a realistic shot at sweeping the weekend.
Busch and Keselowski have combined to win two of the three Sprint Cup races at the Northern Kentucky track plus Keselowski is the defending champion of the Nationwide Series race.
They will first go at it on Thursday night under the lights. Both will take the wheel of their owns trucks as Keselowski will drive the No. 19 DrawTite Brad Keselowski Racing Ford while Busch will pilot the No. 51 Dollar General Kyle Busch Racing Toyota. Then on Friday night, Keselowski will take to the No. 22 Discount Tire Ford with Busch racing the No. 54 Monster Energy Drink Toyota.
On Saturday night, it’s back to their normal rides in the Cup series.
Can the feat be done this weekend?
Thursday night will be the first shot. It’s their race to lose.

Sonoma, Calif-For the second straight race, Joe Gibbs Racing had a day to forget. After winning a number of times in 2013, the organization is really deep in a slump after today’s Toyota/Save Mart 350. Last Sunday in Michigan, JGR didn’t have any of their three drivers finish in the top 10. Matt Kenseth led the way with a 14th place finish while Denny Hamiln and Kyle Busch finished...
