Kyle Busch finished his story with JGR. Richard Childress Racing will be his next team and next challenge. No one doubts that Busch will continue in the same way as before. Busch will be a big 'reinforcement' for RCR, and the RCR team has the right to be optimistic.
Kyle Busch compared himself to great sports stars who similarly left their teams and continued their adventure elsewhere. “I’m kind of looking at it as the Tom Brady /Peyton Manning aspect where they left great teams, great organizations where they won championships, and they went on and were able to win championships somewhere else.
I’d like to think that I still have that opportunity to be able to do that with RCR,” Kyle Busch said. Next Gen cars are something that Busch is looking forward to. He has no problem adapting to anything because his qualities and experience are something special.
“I look at the opportunity with the new Next Gen race car as an easier move to make now with that versus years past with previous generation cars. So, I think it’s going to be… honestly, it could be a lateral move,”.
Austin Dillon on Kyle Busch
Austin Dillon, who is also his new teammate, believes that Busch's arrival has even more of a positive effect on the team. Now is the time for them to take a step forward and show everyone their strength.
“I think everybody in the shop is just a little bit more — I don’t know how you’d say it — it’s not on edge. It’s an edge that, ‘Hey, we’ve got to get everything, we gotta cross our T’s, dot our I’s because we want to go out there and show the entire racing industry how good we really are and that we are stepping our performance up each year,” Austin Dillon said.
