BEST OF MAXIM
On the 104th lap at Kansas Speedway, Kyle Busch's car crashed into that of Joey Logano with such force that it actually lifted the two front tires of Logano's car off the ground completely.
Joe Gibbs Racing's No. 18 team pulled out a back-up Toyota for last week's Sprint Cup winner Kyle Busch after he glanced off the wall during NASCAR Sprint Cup practice on Friday at Kansas Speedway.
Busch had completed just four laps in first practice before hitting the wall exiting Turn 2. Busch's fastest lap was 180.644 mph.
The team unloaded the backup car just 20...
Kyle Busch has been on an amazing streak of late. Last Friday and Saturday nights at Texas Motor Speedway, he won both the NASCAR Nationwide and Sprint Cup series races.
I think the difference for Kyle from a year ago is that he is back to doing what he does best -- and that's called winning.
Last year, a lot of his time and effort were put into Kyle Busch Motorsports to get...
Despite qualifying fifth, Kyle Busch never got a grip at Kansas Speedway on Sunday.
In the first five laps, Busch spun on the backstretch. After a pit stop, Busch came back through the field and was 29th by the time the second caution fell on Lap 39. But 65 laps later, Busch completely lost control of his car in Turn 4 and, as he came off the wall, he collected Joey Logano in the...
Kyle Busch hit just about everything during another lousy weekend at Kansas Speedway.
The driver of the No. 18 for Joe Gibbs Racing had to go to a backup car after wrecking in practice. Busch also crashed out of the Truck Series race Saturday. He then spun twice more Sunday, the second time colliding with Joey Logano and ending his afternoon early.
Busch was running 22nd when he...
HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. – After his win at Saturday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, his second of the young season, Kyle Busch said he felt like he was “riding a wave right now that’s 30 feet tall and ready to keep riding.”
Even though the next race on the schedule occurs at land-locked Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Busch will hope to continue...
MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Kyle Busch sweeps into Kansas Speedway in Kansas City this weekend, where once again he will be pulling double-duty, driving the No. 51 ToyotaCare Tundra in Saturday’s SFP 250 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race and the No. 18 M&M’s Camry in Sunday’s STP Gas Booster 500. The last two weekend’s that the Las Vegas native has pulled double-duty –...
It was a tough-luck weekend for Kyle Busch and his ToyotaCare Racing team. After changing engines twice in practice and losing valuable time preparing for the 167-lap race on the freshly paved 1.5-mile tri-oval at Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Busch proved to have one of the strongest trucks in the field in the early stages of Saturday’s SFP 250. After getting pinched early in...
COMEBACK KID: Joey Logano might have a new nickname – the “Comeback Kid.” Last weekend, Logano had to come from the back of the pack to earn a top-five finish in the Sprint Cup Series race at Texas Motor Speedway. Then on Sunday, racing in just his second NASCAR Camping World Series Truck race at Rockingham Speedway, Logano came back from a lap down to challenge for the lead...
Joey Logano, driver of the No. 19 Reese Towpower Carbon Forged Ford F-Series, made his second start for Brad Keselowski Racing in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) during the SFP 250 at Kansas Speedway on Saturday. Logano qualified in the 16th position.
Logano got off to a solid start, moving into the top ten after a few caution flags fell early. When the first caution...
Martin Truex Jr. is still reeling over last weekend's loss to Kyle Busch at Texas Motor Speedway.
Truex led 142 of 334 laps in the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Texas -- the only laps he's led all year -- before Busch beat the No. 56 Toyota off of pit road on the final pit stop to take the lead and the win. Not only did Truex have to accept a second-place finish and endure a...
Streaking Busch Faces Kansas Challenge
The Kyle Busch that won 100 NASCAR national series races at a record clip largely disappeared in 2012. He fashioned just one victory overall and missed the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup™.
News flash: He’s back. And how.
Busch posted his second NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victory of the year in Texas to extend his string of five top-five finishes...
