Kyle Busch wins at Phoenix; now one win away from tying Richard Petty’s 200 wins

The most polarizing figure in NASCAR is one victory away from having the same amount of victories as “The King”, Richard Petty. Kyle Busch was having a solid run all day and was able to hold solid track position for a majority of the race. In the final stage though, a couple of wild restarts and a bad pit stop saw Busch stuck outside the top five. Thanks to a long, green flag run, Busch was able to hunt down Ryan Blaney with 15 to go and win his 2nd consecutive race at ISM Raceway and sweep the weekend. Busch now has 199 wins across all three series with 52 Cup series wins, 94 Xfinity series wins, and 53 wins in the Gandor Outdoor truck series. While I am all for Busch being banned from Xfinity and the trucks so that the up-and-comers can build their names, we cannot deny the greatness we are seeing from Kyle Busch. He has become a master behind the wheel and is without a doubt the best driver of the 2010s. He has committed actions throughout this career that have made fans and people of the media turn him into a villain, but if there is one thing that is certain, then it is that Kyle Busch, once he retires, will go down as the most successful NASCAR driver in the racing league’s history.
