That’a’boy Rowdy :) Kyle took home the checkered for the 16th time at Bristol just ahead of the Sprint Cup Race on Sunday, March 16th. Five are within the Sprint Cup series, seven are Nationwide, four are from the Truck Series. Regardless, the boy knows how to short track race. Busch has racked up 65 wins in the Nationwide Series.
"I absolutely like visiting Bristol, I also have," said Busch, who created his first visit to the.533-mile bullring in 2004 screening with Hendrick Motorsports.

"I simply attempted to stay fast and stay tough and I understand (Larson) was sticking up top, he enjoys the top," Busch said. "I understood he would be up there. I attempted to master that a bit earlier in the competition, like anyone who had been behind me on the restart could be in a position to leap both men that were on the underside though.
"Kenseth, he really was quick," Busch said. “He was lightning-fast there a lot of your day and I was having difficulty getting him. I was simply in a position to bide my time through-traffic a bit much better than he did and he got caught and he was handed by me.”
"There were seven or eight (vehicles) that were actually battling today, which means you really took this one home against some great competition" Kenseth said. "Every 25 or so laps it appeared you’d capture exactly the same team. It had been difficult to cope with there. It had been difficult to defeat him, once he got the guide.
Kenseth settled for second while Kyle Busch took the checkers.
