It will surely be not a stretch to assert that the 2023 season is the year of Kyle Busch as he is back to being ‘Rowdy’ on the tracks of NASCAR. In his first year with Richard Childress Racing, Kyle Busch is surely busier than ever, winning races in the both Cup Series and other minor racing series of NASCAR. 

Moreover, it can assuredly be asserted that Busch is talent personified, given his two Cup Series titles to his name, and is surely not running out of caliber anytime soon. And one can thank his secret weapon that helps the veteran keep his talent in check, chiseling his racing skills. The results were evident in the fourth race of the SRX Racing Series in Berlin.

After two chaotic and eventful Thursdays, followed by wrecks and suspensions, stock car racing enthusiasts were thirsty for a race void of contentions and cautions issued due to crashes. The fourth race of the series at Berlin Raceway assuredly stood up to the expectations of the fans, as the race was fairly clean and without any major incidents to make it to the headlines. 

However, there was only one element which was repetition and was carried over from the race at Pulaski, which is the winner of the race. The Richard Childress Racing driver repeated the same feat and clinched the second back-to-back title in his second appearance in the ongoing series. In both the races, the 2x Cup Series champion held off two veteran drivers, in order to take the podium. 

It was Brad Keselowski, the 2012 Cup Series champion, whom Rowdy had held off to notch the first victory in Pulaski, while in Berlin Raceway it was the 4x Indy 500 champion Helio Castroneves, whom the RCR driver had outlasted in order to clinch the second victory. Although the driver is not lacking a drop of his racing caliber, Busch revealed that it was through the help of his son that the victories became feasible.

In the post-race interview with Frontstretch, Busch with a livery marked with the name of Florida Panthers revealed, “We went two for two. The Panthers [Florida Panthers] better step it up and get to win in some games this year.”

When asked if he would race full-time in the series from the next season, the driver retorted, “Yeah, it kind of just all depends on what’s going on, I try to race as much as I can with Brexton, and this kind of just fit in with the Midwest schedule that we have in travel this week going to Michigan right after this to tomorrow, so it’s all about making a fit.”

The race at Berlin Raceway, surely brought memories from the race at Pulaski, after both the Cup Series champions Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski engaged in a neck-to-neck fight for the lead. Although the RFK Racing co-owner had taken an early lead after fending off Ryan Newman, he could have been spun on the track, after Busch overdrove in Turn 1 and put an end to Keselowski’s favorable race results.

Nevertheless, Keselowski was able to hold his ground and lead the race for quite a few laps. However, the story changed when the Indy 500 champion, Castroneves took the lead. Soon Busch overtook the IndyCar driver from the outside with just 25 laps to go. And Busch was able to maintain the lead and clinched the second victory, becoming the only driver after Tony Stewart, who had done the same feat back in 2021.

Nevertheless, after securing the victory, Busch expressed to the media, “I’d love to come back. This is my two-for-two. I’m out for the year, but the rest of these guys can put on a show for you.”
