Recently, Kyle Busch competed in the Tulsa Shootout, in a rare dirt appearance. Suffice to say, he dominated the proceedings and won from 8th place on the grid. In light of his triumph, the Joe Gibbs Racing driver was ecstatic and even swore on live TV. On the track, he steadily made his way up the order and took the lead on the white flag.

Speaking after the race, he said, “Yeah it was fun. I really appreciate Christopher Bell and Joe B Miller and all the guys. It’s really fun, just different. Different atmosphere, different class of car. Just wheeling it, just trying to get the most I could. I watched my son yesterday, he gave me all the tricks, pass them on the high side.”

He said, “That’s what it’s all about right now. That’s the name of the game, just trying to get those points. I was hoping to get three or four of them. Anyways, to be able to race up front, get to the lead was pretty awesome. It was close, I backed it up too far in Turn 3 on the last lap. I even told myself on the back stretch, ‘Alright! Don’t f**k this up. Make sure you do it right’. Lo and behold, I almost did it.”

One thing is for sure, this is a great way for him to get some practice before the 2022 Cup season begins. The bad news was that while he triumphed in one class, he was not as successful in the other categories. The highest he finished in other classes was 3rd in the 600cc Outlaw Winged Micro division heat race.
