NASCAR America: Kurt Busch admits dad made him fix his own race cars


On Wednesday’s edition of NASCAR America from the NASCAR Hall of Fame, special guest Kurt Busch let us in on a long-held secret:

To make his son gain a better appreciation for his race cars and why it is so important to take care of them, Kurt’s father Tom made his oldest son (and also did so with Kyle) fix his own wrecked cars so that he would respect his cars more.

Plus, if he took better care of his equipment, Kurt would likely be more successful — something he still adheres to today.

He also reveals what would be his theme song for the playoffs and whether his beloved Cubs can repeat as World Series champions.
