Kyle Busch and his struggle at Kansas

Since 2004, the crash at Kansas Speedway in 2013 has to be one of the most striking moments of Kyle’s career. The fact that he has mustered just the one first finish at this course sums up his struggle.

Man, I really, really struggle there for some reason. I’m not sure what it is,” said a frustrated Kyle Busch.

The Penske racing driver felt that he could get past Busch, only to find himself running into him. “I committed to running it to get by him on the bottom, and he came across us. It was just unfortunate,” said Logano.

At that point, you’re just lined up to him and hit him a ton. I’m fine,” he further added.

Busch holds the record for the most Xfinity Series wins in a season with 13 in 2010. And the most overall with 97. But, “I just don’t know what to do at Kansas,” concluded the seasoned racer.
