Count Kyle Busch amongst the 2015 winners in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

The 30-year-old wins in a spectacular way on Sunday at the finish line.

In the first-ever 1-2 finish in the series by the Busch brothers, Kyle beat Kurt Busch to the finish line by .532 seconds to win for the first time since returning from an 11-race absence because of a broken right leg and left foot injured during a Feb. 21 accident at Daytona International Speedway.

On Lap 106  Kyle Busch muscled past Jimmie Johnson and took the lead on the way to his second victory at the 1.99-mile road course. It is the 30th win of his career. Johnson had stayed out on old tires while Busch joined a parade to pit road for new rubber after the left rear wheel assembly separated from Casey Mears’ car to cause the fifth and final caution of the race on Lap 99.

Usually every week, Kyle Busch is always a major challenger to win a race. But most fans may have forgotten but 46 races had passed since Kyle Busch last enjoyed Victory Lane in NASCAR’s premier series, including the 11 he missed because of the Daytona injuries. Busch last won at Fontana, Calif., on Mar. 23, 2014. The victory extends his streak of winning at least one race per year to 11 years.

The win gives Busch the chance he needs to qualify for the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. Busch also must finish in the top 30 in the series standings after 26 races in order to maintain his eligibility for NASCAR’s playoff.

With the win, Kyle is chasing Cole Whit for 30th-place with 10 races left in the regular season. Busch gained two positions in the standings to 37th, 136 points behind Whit.

Can Kyle catch Whit? Nothing is impossible for a person with the drive and determination of Kyle Busch. Don’t bet against him!



Danica Patrick on the pole for the 55th running of the Daytona 500; first female to achieve feat

Race car driver Danica Patrick is used to making history on the track.

She was the first woman to lead laps at the Indianapolis 500 in 2009 finishing third and to win a motor sport event in the IndyCar in Japan in 2008.

Her most recent “first” is winning the Daytona 500 pole winner last week. By doing so, she became the first woman to grab the top spot for any race in NASCAR’s top circuit.

Patrick captured the pole with a lap at 196.434 mph around the historic Daytona International Speedway track. Only Jeff Gordon came the closest to taking her spot by being the only other driver to top 196 mph.

Patrick dives the #10 Chevrolet SS.

The previous highest qualifier in a Cup race for a female, was 1977 when Janet Guthrie started ninth at both Bristol and Talladega.

This is good news to Patrick’s long-line of followers, who have seen her struggle in three NASCAR seasons. Her best finish in 10 Sprint Cup races is 17th and she has only one to-five finish in the Nationwide Series where she finished 10th in the standings in 2012.

2013 NASCAR RACE 1 PREVIEW: Sprint Cup Daytona 500, today at 1 pm on Fox Sports

The 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup season officially opens today with one of the most popular races on the circuit, the Daytona 500 from Daytona Beach, Florida.

The race starts at 1 pm, today, February 24 on FOX Sports.

On the pole will Danica Patrick, who is the first female driver to ever achieve the top spot in NASCAR’S premiere series.

The design of the track at Daytona, which opened 54 years ago in 1959, was based on the high-banked oval at the Ford Proving Grounds near the motor city of Detroit.

The track is one of the largest on the Sprint Cup circuit of 2.5 miles in length and is a 500-mile, 200-lap race.

If there is rain in the Daytona area, NASCAR has found a way to dry the track quicker.

They’ll use a new drying system which can improve by 80%. It can dry the track in 30 minutes instead of years past when it would take 2 1/2 hours.

The race was delayed a day by rain and a jet-fueled propelled track dryer caught on fire when driver Juan Pablo Montoya’s car struck it on a caution lap.

Matt Kenseth won the restrictor-plate race.

The last 10 Sprint Cup races at Daytona International Speedway, the top drivers include, Matt Kenseth and Tony Stewart with two wins each and Kevin Harvick with 1.

Kurt Busch wins wild Nationwide race at Daytona

Kurt Busch was the winner of a wild and crash-filled Nationwide Series race at Daytona International Speedway on Friday night. Busch held on for the last hundred yards in his battered car.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. was second, Michael Arnett finished third, Austin Dillon fourth and Joey Logano rounded out the top five.

Dillon’s car spun across the track as he crossed the finish line and made contact with two other cars becoming finally stopping.

What a difference a week makes. Last weekend at Kentucky Speedway, Dillon was the winner, while Busch finished second.

The race had several crashes that left half the field on the lead lap for a green-white-checkered finish. Busch started the two-lap sprint to the title chasing Dillon, but with the help of Stenhouse, Jr., Busch was able to take the win.

Busch’s win was his second of the season and first with Phoenix Racing. His other win was for his brother, Kyle Busch Motorsports, at Richmond International Raceway.
