Who is Kyle Busch?
American Kyle Busch was born in Las Vegas in 1985. When Busch was six years old, he started racing go-karts. He also often worked in the family garage with his father and brother. His professional racing career began when he was thirteen years old. This with great success! Over 65 victories were achieved in Legends Car Racing, so Busch can also call himself a legend of this class without a doubt. Three years later, Kyle started racing in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series and so began his NASCAR adventure.
NASCAR Kyle Busch
Busch has had many successes within the NASCAR series and broke many records. For example, he was the youngest pole winner in 2005 at 19 years old. He has also won the most races ever (24) in the top three NASCAR series in the modern era. With 227 wins in the NASCAR national series, he also tops the list in all-time wins. Unfortunately, he also has a less enjoyable record behind his name, namely the most laps in the lead without a win in the Daytona 500 (2022 statistics).
NASCAR world champion
In 2009, Busch, also known as 'Rowdy' because of his driving style, took his first title in the Xfinity Series. That season he racked up nine wins, which made him world champion. It did not stop there, as six years later in 2015, Kyle Busch won his first world title in the NASCAR Cup Series for Joe Gibbs Racing with Toyota as manufacturer. This was quite an achievement, as that season Busch was involved in a major accident during the Xfinity Series, which left him with a number of injuries. Nevertheless, he got back in the car a few months later, resulting in the world title. He won his second NASCAR Cup Series title in 2019, also for Joe Gibbs Racing. In 2021 he scored his 100th win in the NASCAR Xfinity Series and in 2022 he drove his final season for Joe Gibbs Racing, for which he drove for 15 seasons.
Busch for Richard Childress Racing
In 2023, we will see him back on track for Richard Childress Racing with number 8 on his car. For this team, he has already scored two victories in the 2023 season. Will he add another world title behind his name this season?
