Kyle Busch Sets Limited Truck Schedule

The Kyle Busch Motorsports roster continues to fall in place as just days after announcing Harrison Burton‘s return, the team confirmed the boss, Kyle Busch, will run five events in 2018. 

Busch will compete in two races behind the wheel of the No. 4 Toyota Tundra, beginning with Atlanta Motor Speedway on February 24, followed by Kansas Speedway (May 11). He will then drive three events behind the wheel of the No. 51, beginning with Las Vegas Motor Speedway on March 2, followed by Charlotte Motor Speedway (May 18) and Pocono Raceway (July 28).

“Our partnership with Textron Aviation and the Cessna and Beechcraft brands got off to a great start last year with two trips to victory lane and we have our sights set higher this year,” Busch said. “There are a couple of really cool things happening with my truck schedule this year — two of my races will be in the No. 4 Tundra, which was the number on my first Legends car back at the Bullring, and I’ll also be racing a truck at Las Vegas for the first time since 2001. It’s always fun to race in my hometown and it’s the only active track on the Truck Series schedule where I’ve made a start and haven’t visited victory lane — so hopefully we can change that in March.”

The 2016 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Champion will feature primary sponsorship from Textron Aviation, and their brands Cessna and Beechcraft.

Busch has scored 49 truck victories to date, placing him second on the all-time win list, just two shy from a tie for first. The probability of that happening is high, considering he has placed first or second in 52.1 percent of the events ran. Last year, he scored three victories, four top-fives, and five t0p-10’s in seven series starts.
