Kyle Busch is on a roll. He leads the Cup Series with three wins entering this weekend’s race at Richmond and he’ll be going for his third straight win on the short track.
Across all three national series he has 10 wins and he has at least one victory in each of the last seven race weekends.
So his fellow competitors don’t need any more incentive to beat him, right?
Maybe, but Parker Kligerman wouldn’t mind there being extra rewards for drivers if they manage to beat Busch while he’s in such a groove.
“I know you used to do this in short-track racing, but right now I’d like to see a bounty on Kyle Busch,” Kligerman said Thursday on NASCAR America. “Whoever but I’m saying something to raise the stakes, saying This guy has been so incredible to start the season across all three series. Now, going to another short track, what a cool storyline it would be to say, ‘Alright, if anyone beats him you’re going to be rewarded for this. Because this guy is setting the standard right now.'”
