Kyle Busch to compete on off weekend

NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Kyle Busch will enter the TD Bank 250

Late Model event at Oxford Plains Speedway in Oxford, Maine, on

July 24.

Busch will prepare for the main event by running the Pro All

Star Series Super Late Model 150 race on the previous evening.

Busch is returning to the 3/8-mile oval for the first time since

running in the event in 2005 and 2006. He led 70 laps of the 2005

event and had a straightaway lead before finishing sixth after

making a late-race pit stop. In 2006, he was leading the feature

before engine problems relegated him to a 22nd-place finish.

“It’s no secret that I love to race, so I’ll be spending my

weekend off from the Sprint Cup Series in July running the Late

Model races at Oxford Plains Speedway,” said Busch. “The track is a

lot of fun to drive. It’s very flat, the corners are very round and

the straightaways aren’t very long.

“…This year we decided to bring our own (Kyle Busch

Motorsports) Toyota Camry’s. Hopefully, the third time will be the

charm.”
