Kyle Busch received a boost of confidence from a fellow competitor earlier this year. Saturday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Busch said the first driver he saw after his accident in February was three-time NASCAR champion Tony Stewart. Busch crashed at the end of the season opening Xfinity Series race at Daytona International Speedway on February 21. He broke his right leg and his left foot in the accident and missed the first 11 races of the NASCAR Sprint Cup season.
The hours after that crash were the worst of his like, Busch admitted. He along with those around him were gloomy and wondering what his future would hold. The immediate future was the first to deal with, as it quickly became evident that Busch would not be racing in the Daytona 500 the next day. It was something his Joe Gibbs Racing Sprint Cup crew had to react to.
“They were actually eating dinner when I crashed in the Xfinity race and they were like, ‘Well, we better go to the race track.’ “ Busch said. MORE>>>
