Taking a recap of last year’s race, the RCR driver acknowledged that their team had performed fairly well despite the disturbances caused by the rain. They may not have been exceptional, but he cuts them some slack on account of his position during the race; which was way in the back. It would have been difficult to pass the other cars from there, but still managed to trust their strategy and secure a top-five finish!

However, Kyle Busch believes that things will be different this time around, or at least he hopes. While discussing the upcoming race, he hinted that his team has made improvements and he expects to have a stronger showing at this track in the upcoming season.

“I feel like, we were decent here last year. I wouldn’t say we were exceptional, the weather kind of threw a wrench in our day, but then being back in the pack- it’s kind of tough to pass so having the opportunity to play the strategy game got us up front, got us the top-five.” Kyle Busch said to the press, recalling the 2023 Chicago Street Course race. So I wouldn’t say we were driving through the field and passing people but, this year will be different.

In all fairness, the two-time NASCAR Cup Series Champion knows that while the results of last year weren’t ideal- they were still acceptable. This means there’s an opening for the team to push through and make it out this time around. Even if his overall performance this year may have been subpar, at best, will this be this big hurrah?

There’s a lot of speculation about what’s causing Busch’s troubles and what it means for his future, and while the issues seem to be a combination of his No. 8 Chevrolet not performing well under his inexperience with the Next-Gen model and a loss of confidence as the weekends go by. This is a far cry from the Busch fans are used to seeing up front and contending for wins.

The competition around him is been heating up and he knows it. With only seven races left before the playoffs, Busch is in a race against time to turn things around and secure a spot. So Busch is really feeling the pressure to figure out how to get his car and team performing at a high level again, perhaps this determination will be the shove he needs to win!
