When NASCAR races into New Hampshire Motor Speedway fans can bet Kyle Busch will be a factor to capture at least one checkered flag during the LENOX Industrial Tools 301 weekend, July 15-17.
In just seven years of racing on "The Magic Mile," Busch has claimed five wins, two of which came last year. He became the first ever repeat winner in the NASCAR Nationwide Series at NHMS in 23 races. When NASCAR returned in September, Busch also dominated the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race, winning both the pole and 175-lap event.
"I've been really fortunate to have a lot of success there in Nationwide and the Truck Series," said Busch. "It's been a great place for me especially with the experience I gain there."
During the 2006 LENOX Industrial Tools 301, Busch captured his first Granite State victory in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and has hopes to be back in the winner's circle this summer.
"New Hampshire is a fun track for me. In order to do well there, you need a car that works on all the different kinds of asphalt the tracks seem to be putting down. You need a car that has a lot of side bite in the rear and front grip to turn easier. At New Hampshire, it seems like I've always been loose into the corner and tight in the center, which is hard to fix, sometimes. I think the team that can fix that the best will have the best car. Even though I won a Cup race there earlier in my career, my first two years with Joe Gibbs Racing, I really struggled there in the Cup car. Dave Rogers has done a great job with our cars there and our results have improved. I'm hoping we can get to victory lane there with our Interstate Batteries Camry in July."
