The Tricky Triangle was a complete treat for Kyle Busch this weekend. First up: The Camping World Truck Series where Kyle Busch ties the series all-times series wins with NASCAR Hall of Famer Ron Hornaday Jr. at 51 wins holding off teammate Erik Jones.
Kyle knew he tied The four time Camping World Truck Series Champion Ron Hornaday Jr. for series wins with 51 career wins in the series. So, Kyle proceeded to preform his classic burnout at the start finish line and his burnout was so long that he caught the track on fire burning the asphalt. Kyle later said,” My bad, I sat on that spot too long.”
Next up The Monster Cup Series race where Kyle Busch won his 6th Monster Cup Series race for 2018 in overtime. With that victory Kyle Busch ties Tony Stewart with all time Monster Cup Series wins with 49. Even though both Kyle Busch and series rival Kevin both failed inspections and were forced to forfeit their starting positions. They both rallied early in the race gaining back potentially all the spots they lost due to their inspection woes.
Next up Watkins Glen where road course racing becomes a place where great drivers emerge. With 5 chances left to get into the Chase for the Championship. Several drivers need a win to have a chance to be the 2018 Champion. As, the big 3 dominate this season racking up 16 victory’s between them basically sweeping up the season.
