Kyle Busch has had an eventful 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup season. In February of this year Busch crashed during the season opening Xfinity Series race at Daytona International Speedway breaking his right leg and left foot. Busch missed the first 11 races of the season undergoing two surgeries and extensive rehab. Wednesday however Busch said he’s ready to get back on the track that nearly ended his career.
Just five races after his return and two weeks after a victory in the Xfinity race at Michigan International Speedway in his first race back in that series, Busch won last Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Sonoma Raceway. Busch took the lead from Jimmie Johnson with five laps to go and went on to score his 30th career win. It was an emotional win for Busch who, in an ironic twist, parked his Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota on the track and walked into victory lane at the 1.99-mile road course.
The Sonoma win cemented one part of what Busch needs to qualify for NASCAR’s season ending 10-race Chase for the championship. MORE>>>
