All Kyle Busch does is win, win, win – no matter what. Unless, of course, it’s a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Busch nabbed NASCAR national series win No. 11 last week at Charlotte in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event, pushing his career total to 113 victories. Inexplicably, not one of those has come driving a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series car at Charlotte.
He’s come close, as his Charlotte top-five percentage of 44 percent would suggest (eight top fives in 18 races). The only track where Busch boasts more top fives is Richmond, with 12. Busch’s best Charlotte finish is second, which he did in the October race in both 2010 and 2011. His best Coca-Cola 600 finish was third, which he accomplished three times – most recently in 2012.
Figure on a win coming sooner than later. He has scored top fives in five of the last six races and has only one finish outside the top 10 inthe last 11 Charlotte events.
