Few tracks have given Kyle Busch such a hard time as Charlotte Motor Speedway. It’s also one of the few tracks that he hasn’t won at in NASCAR Cup competition.
Sure, Busch finally broke through last Saturday to win the Monster Energy All-Star Race, but because it’s a non-points paying event, the record books still state that Busch has never won a regular season or playoff race at CMS.
He gets another chance to do so in Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600. While he won the All-Star Race by using strategy in the fourth and final 10-lap segment of a 70-lap overall event, Busch and the other 39 drivers in the field will face a completely different setting Sunday: 400 laps, 600 miles in NASCAR’s longest race of the season.
On Thursday’s edition of NASCAR America, Kyle Petty contemplated whether Busch’s All-Star Race win will help him solve his past issues at Charlotte and finally claim that elusive win in the 600.
