Kyle Busch tried to become the first driver who won three races in one weekend
Kyle Busch’s run of bad luck officially ended Saturday at Phoenix International Raceway.
Busch followed his Friday night Truck Series win with a victory Saturday in the Busch Series, giving him a chance Sunday in the Nextel Cup event to become the first driver to sweep all three of NASCAR’s national series at the same track on the same weekend.
"I am not saying we will. I am not saying we won’t," Busch said. "I am just saying we hope to. It would be a great honor to have that."
In preparation for the moment, Busch pulled a broom-waving fan into Victory Lane to pose for pictures. Busch starts 38th in Sunday’s Nextel race, but he finished eighth.
It was the final Busch Series race of Busch’s career at Hendrick. He’s leaving the team at the end of the season as it makes room for Dale Earnhardt Jr., and Busch isn’t scheduled to race next weekend in the finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
In 101 Busch starts for Hendrick, Busch won 11 times.
