It’s been a rough go at times for Kurt Busch this season. Sure, he won the season-opening Daytona 500, which all but assured himself a spot in the upcoming NASCAR playoffs.
Busch is currently 15th in the NASCAR Cup standings heading into this weekend’s race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
But more importantly, Busch is seeded eighth in the NASCAR playoff rankings.
With that being the case, Busch believes it’s more important to win race trophies rather than stages to get the optimal position when the playoffs begin and the points are reset.
