Kyle Busch Kicks Off Dover Tripleheader With Trucks Win
Get the brooms ready, Kyle Busch is doing it again.
Busch kicked off the weekend with a win in Friday night's NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Dover International Speedway.
Flashback to Bristol in 2010, when Busch won the Trucks race Friday night and went on to become the first and only driver to pull off an unprecedented tripleheader sweep.
He's trying it again this weekend.
"I'm the only one dumb enough to try," he said. "I think we can (pull it off)."
Busch enters the weekend with three Nationwide Series wins at Dover, and two Sprint Cup wins. He led 302 laps last fall but had to pit on lap 390 for fuel and finished seventh.
What is key to Busch's success at the Monster Mile? It's all about managing the tricky surface.
"The concrete surface is very slick and some drivers don't like the concrete feel one bit, while other drivers like it. For me, I enjoy going to Dover and Bristol. They are challenging and other drivers don't necessarily get it."
Busch will start third in Saturday's Nationwide race, and third in Sunday's FedEx 400 benefitting Autism Speaks (12:30p ET - FOX).
