The Kyle Busch Racing Marathon Weekend hits a snag

Having made the bold move to take on the three major NASCAR events at three different tracks, 2008 stock racing stand out Kyle Busch is unquestionably driven by a competitive desire limited to only time itself. Lucky for him, he's been the fastest thing in NASCAR succeeding in rising Toyota to a victory lane threat everywhere. The first of three races, Kyle Busch started his trio of races last night(Friday June 6) at Texas Motor Speedway on the 400 Kilometer Craftsman truck series event. Overcoming significant time tuning his Billy Ballew #51 Toyota Tundra to the Kyle's liking, he finished second while challenging race winner Ron Hornaday Jr in the closing laps. Having also qualified his Sprint Cup #18 M&M's Toyota in 10th place at Pocono for Sunday's 500-mile affair, the first day of the marathon had went favourably. Starting with the morning session of practice for the Pocono 500, Kyle Busch's race weekend is taking a major hit.

After catching a notorious patch on turn 3 surface of the triangular race track, Busch's primary Toyota Camry race car is now reduced to a heavily-damaged pile of sheet metal. Before that time, Kyle Busch and crew chief Steve Addington were toiling with a tight race car. Kyle spoke after the crash to saying "It's no big deal. These guys will dig in and we'll have a good car [Sunday] afternoon for the race". The results of this incident are mixed. While the #18 JGR team were fortunate to have a Saturday afternoon practice for shake down a backup car, Kyle Busch will need to start the Pocono 500 in the rear, relinquishing his 10th place starting spot.

In addition to his day two racing efforts in Pocono, Pennsylvania, Kyle Busch promptly left for the Nashville Superspeedway Nationwide race. Through Wille Allen had been with the Braun Racing #32 Toyota for Friday practice, Kyle Busch plans to qualify and race the car later tonight(7:30 Eastern time).
