Kurt Busch could set NASCAR record at Pocono Raceway
Kurt Busch will head to Pocono Raceway this weekend looking to complete the sweep of both NASCAR Sprint Cup Series events at the 2.5-mile Pennsylvania track.
But that’s not the only thing he could accomplish on Sunday.
If Busch can complete every lap in the Pennsylvania 400, he’ll break the record for most laps completed in consecutive races to start a season.
The No. 41 Stewart-Haas Racing driver is currently tied with Dale Earnhardt Jr., who set the record in 2012 after finishing every lap in the first 20 races of the season.
In completing all 5,673 laps run this year, Busch has recorded six top fives and 15 top-10 finishes.
