Meet Kyle Busch
How Kyle’s Fans Describe Him
The late Al Davis, former owner of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders, never missed a chance to tell his players to “Just Win Baby” while also preaching the widely known motto of his organization: “A Commitment to Excellence.”
It could be said NASCAR Sprint Cup Series standout Kyle Busch, driver of the No. 18 M&M’s Toyota Camry for Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR), lives by those two Raiderisms. There is nothing more important to Busch than winning races, and he demands a commitment to excellence from his team and himself.
At the close of the 2014 season Kyle Busch has collected 141 career wins in the top three divisions of NASCAR – Sprint Cup (29), Xfinity Series (70) and Truck Series (42). Busch fought a tough season in 2014 in which he grabbed his 29th career Sprint Cup victory placing him in 23rd place among all time winners. Kyle also collected his 70th win in the Xfinity Series as well as JGR’s 100th career Xfinity Series trip to victory lane.
Kyle and his wife Samantha will face a new exciting challenge in the 2015 season as they expect their first child in May.
Most NASCAR observers agree Busch, 29, is one of the most talented drivers in the garage and is a threat to win every time he races. Until last season, he had scored at least 18 wins across NASCAR’s top three divisions every year since joining JGR in 2008.
