Kyle Busch: “The Daytona 500 is one that has eluded me"

Kyle Busch is one of the biggest names in NASCAR who has many victories and trophies behind him, but what he misses the most seems to be the Daytona 500 win “I don’t know if this this is the year or not, but we’ll all have to find out together.

It’s been a long time, obviously. I’ve been doing it for quite a while,” Busch, 36, said, as quoted by motorsport “It’s the last trophy to check off the box. “I’ve certainly been close a few times and have been way far away at other times." "I feel like the superspeedway thing has not been my knack over the last few years for whatever reason.

I’ve been trying to learn on it and watch film and getting better at it in those situations”.
This is also the last year of the partnership between Kyle Bush and M&M’s “You can be leading going down the backstretch and have someone drill you from behind and crash you, so it’s never over till it’s over and you can get to the finish line and finally put our M&M’S Camry in Victory Lane there,” he said.

“Our friends at M&M’S have also been trying for years and I’m also hoping we can get it done for them, as well as for myself”.

Kyle Busch on sunday's race

Busch expects Sunday's race to be a real test for him “You get a chance to practice and a chance to run it in the Duel races, so you get to get your feet wet a bit to understand how it does in the draft,” he said.

“Until you get in a pack of 40, cars you really aren’t going to have a whole understanding of what it takes and what its limitations are. “I think you are going to be learning that as you go and it’s going to be never-ending”.

The Daytona 500 is what Busch dreams of and what his main goal is, but can he still achieve it? “Winning the Daytona 500 would be huge,” he said. “The Daytona 500 is one that has eluded me, and many others for that matter.

I would certainly like to think I could get that race checked off my list before it’s all said and done, and to also be known as a Daytona 500 champion in addition to my championships and other race wins”.
