LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Kyle Busch is a Las Vegas native, but that doesn’t guarantee a warm reception from fans at LVMS for the driver of the No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota.

“This is a vacation destination for a lot of race fans, so there are a lot of out-of-towners that do come here,” said Busch, whose talent and brash demeanor have aroused the passions of fans both for and against him. “It’s not 100,000 from Las Vegas will be sitting in these grandstands.

“I’ll bet you it’s like 20 or 30 [thousand, but it’s just part of the deal. Plus, I’ll tell you this — when I was coming up through the ranks, I won a lot and probably won too much and didn’t make very many friends. So I’m not sure I have many pulling for me anyway, because I kicked their butt too much.”
